If you like pina colada's...

So, nice and early this morning, my darling boy & I met with the director of the real estate agency we went through to sell his house, and put in an offer for Our Dream House. The REA handling the contract, Jason, is putting forward the offer to the vendor this afternoon, and as the offer expires midnight tomorrow night, we're hoping to hear back relatively soon whether it's been successful. We're both completely wired, and trying not to get excited, as we don't honestly think it will be accepted (the offer we put in is around $60k less than the original price she wanted for the house). But we've got absolutely everything crossed, and I, for one, can barely sit still in anticipation.

I haven't been feeling very well recently, so instead of ride my horse or clean the house or the hundred other things I need to get on, I decided to sit down for a few minutes with a DVD and have a rest. I chose Practical Magic (I'm in a Sandra Bullock mood to get myself ready to see The Proposal - oh, Ryan, I'll be seeing you soon!) and when they started drinking margaritas to Put The Lime In The Coconut, I could barely contain myself. I abso-freakin-lutely love that song, and decided to download it instantly - and as result, have gotten completely side-tracked by downloading more of my favorite songs...and got to thinking. Cam & I were discussing what we would do should we ever be lucky enough to get Our Dream House, and it involves cracking the bottle of Moet we have on ice, and I thought - COCKTAILS! What better way to celebrate than with cocktails?! So, I've been downloading every cocktail or celebratory themed song I can think of - and this is what I have so far. I also seemed to have gotten carried away with tropical themed songs, as the house is barely 100m from the most gorgeous beach and overlooking the bay to the city, and to get in the mood for our honeymoon trip to tropical Noosa.

- If you like Pina Colada's - Barry Manilow

- Jive Talkin' - Bee Gee's (OK, not specifically cocktail themed, I just heart the song!)
- Copo Cabana - Barry Manilow
- ALl Night Long - Lionel Richie (again, not cocktail themed, but Cam insisted it be on the playlist)

Come on, guys - give me a hand. Any more suggestions for our Fingers Crossed We Buy The House Of Our Dreams playlist?
