31 Days of Music: Beats Music

What do you use the most to listen to music? Me?  I have over 3000 files in iTunes, but sometimes I still want to listen to things I don’t own.  For that, I turn to Beats Music.  There is a monthly fee of $15 that goes on our AT&T bill, but it’s a family plan […]

31 Days of Music: Singing in the Shower

Do you sing in the shower? I don’t usually, but I do love the acoustics when I do. Did you know you the Lifeproof iPhone cases are waterproof?  If you had one of those, you could just hop in the shower with it and sing along to whatever. 80s power ballads are probably best.   […]

31 Days of Music: Classical Favorites

I don’t know if it’s due to my concert band roots or not, but I love classical music.  Listening to it usually calms me.  Here are a few of my favorite pieces: Holst’s “The Planets” Mozart’s “Clarinet Concerto in A Major” (The third movement, “Rhondo”, was one of my favorite high school UIL solos.) Beethoven’s […]

One Day 2014: An Instagram Photo Challenge

Yesterday, I joined the Hollywood Housewife for a photo challenge called “One Day.”  The premise was basically to document in photos — the mundane, the big, the little, the messy, the “real” from morning to night for one day.  We used the tag #OneDayHH to keep up with everyone’s pictures — I challenge you to go […]
