Guys of Country – Music Monday

wp-1454962292719.jpg

Welcome to another Music Monday. As you may have figured out by now, my musical tastes are pretty varied, and I am always on the search for fun new songs. I've listened to country off and on for quite a long time, probably since the mid '90's, in my Army days and when Garth Brooks was theman. Aside from the old country and western music that my grandparents listened to (think John Denver), I … [Read more...]

I felt like a fraud

Confession time. I was invited to an event last weekend and I came *thisclose* to bailing and just staying home. It was the 10th anniversary celebration of the pole fitness studio that was my second home for a few years, until I was injured and couldn't participate in the activities I loved anymore. It was a place where I bled and bruised, where I lost myself, only to discover more of who I … [Read more...]

A new year means some new goals, right? I actually try to make and update my goals all year round, but I think that the start of a fresh new year is always a good time to look at those things that you'd like to get done and really solidify a plan. I think that it is a great time to get yourself motivated and inspired, and to do the same for your family. It may be time to remind yourselves to chase … [Read more...]

Songs to pep you up – Music Monday

Another week, another Music Monday. This is one of my favourites to do each week and I hope that you are finding some new songs to jam to. I'm going to be honest and say that I'm feeling a bit draggy today. I'm recovering from bronchitis (yay), I'm nervous about my upcoming surgery and nerve block, and all that good stuff. So today my goal was just to find some songs that perk me up and hope that … [Read more...]

Why is it so hard to ask for help?

20160115_084437.jpg

Do you find it hard to ask for help? When it is offered, can you take it, or do you make excuses about why you can't or shouldn't. I struggle both with the asking and the accepting parts, and I've been trying to figure out why over the last few days.  I will happily offer my ear to listen, my shoulder to cry on, or to help out my friends in any way that I can, but when it comes to actually … [Read more...]

Here comes the “hip hopper”

20160109_192438.jpg

Q and I went to see the So You Think You Can Dance live tour this past weekend. He loves to dance, and decided a few months ago that he wanted to be a "hip hopper". He's been working on a whole bunch of moves, including the b-boy back spin and the worm and loves to break out into freestyle any chance he gets. During the intermission, they were playing music and Q started dancing. GDFR by Flo … [Read more...]

Happy Monday friends! I know I haven't done Music Monday for a few weeks, but it's 2016 and I don't think that anyone should have to face a new week without some awesome tunes to get you through, so I'm starting it up again. This week I wanted to feature some tunes that get us all pumped up and moving, in the hopes that they will do the same for you. There are few things funner than a spontaneous … [Read more...]
