Danny Boy

One of my favorite songs ever would definitely have to be Danny Boy. Being Irish, I can't even being to count all the times I've heard it, but it never gets old. I love beautiful, traditional, Irish music, and this is definitely top of my list! I've been working on this song for a little while now, and I thought I would give it a little test drive today. So here is me singing one of my favorite songs, Danny Boy. Let me know what you think. :)

Cups with the Twins

So the twins love the Cups song almost as much as I do, so I decided to make a video of them since they're so cute when they try to sing the song with me. This may be my best post ever!

Hope this puts a smile on your face! :)

Made a video of my new obsession...the song Cups from Pitch Perfect. This is my new favorite song. P.S.: If you have not already seen Pitch Perfect, you should definitely watch it!

Time to get serious.

So I figure it's about time for me to make my decision on the 2 songs I will be singing in my video submission to The Voice. I have chosen one song: How Great Thou Art, and I have started practicing making a video of it. Eventually I will have to sing it with a track, but for now it's just a capella. Let me know what you think and let me know if you have any ideas for the other song I should sing. Thanks! and Enjoy!

Just Keep Singing

I haven't done a very good job at keeping up with my blog, so I thought it was about time to put up some more songs. Comments and suggestions are welcome as always. :)

Practice Makes Perfect

So I have been practicing more and more on my singing. I'm almost ready to maybe do a real video of a whole song. However, I haven't decided which song to use yet. Any suggestions are welcome as always. So without further ado, here a few more...

My personal favorite of this round is How Great Thou Art. I got the idea after listening to Carrie Underwood's version of it. I hope you all enjoy! :)

I ran a 5k!!!

I finally got to go visit Laura and her little familia, as well as my Grandma this weekend. It was so nice to see them. It had been way too long since I last saw them. I drove up the the Kevin Cruess family because we all wanted to participate in the Walk/Run for LIFE in Roseville. I ran my first 5k since Cross Country, and I was pretty proud of myself. I was able to run the whole thing, and my time wasn't awful. I hope to do more 5k's in the future though, and I hope to get much better times!

I had a great weekend, even though it FLEW by. Spending time with family is always worth it. Playing and dancing with my little nieces is always a blast, and driving for hours in a car with a sick Benji is always fun. He was actually very good for a sick little boy. He did a lot of sleeping. (I hope he is feeling better now.) Car trips are always awesome when you have a little kids in the back singing/trying to dance to Party Rock Anthem and Gangnam Style. While at Laura's house, it was so fun to see her little ones growing up. (It was also sad to see how much I've missed.) They were dancing, singing, talking, riding bikes, and just being basically AWESOME. I would expect nothing less though, of course.

I am so glad that I was able to spend the weekend with great people, eating delicious food (thanks Chris for the BBQ), and having a fun time. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family! <3
