If only life were a musical...

Tunes that I can't help but smile and dance to: 
In case you were wondering... Yes, they are slightly old and kind of random.... And Yes, they are totally AWESOME!

1) You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oats
I have been in love with the song, You Make My Dreams for about 4 months now and I still can't help but smile whenever I listen to it! This upbeat and addicting tune makes my head to bob side to side and forces my shoulders to bounce up and down! At times I would be walking on the crowded ASU campus and I would imagine how amazing it would be if everybody was friendly, happy, and dancing like the people in the video clip! (singing would be an added bonus.) Just thinking about how life would be as a musical makes me all excited and happy! If only...

 Well anyways, take a look at this video because it pretty clearly describes what I would love life to be like... 

2) Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder
For the longest time this song was just an oldie where I knew the chorus, but never payed much attention to it. This marvelous song struck me as I was watching a Glee episode with my aunt and mom, who is now addicted to the show. In this specific part it shows the  character, Rachel, immediately waking up in the morning to "Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride, nobody's gonna slow me down! Oh no, I've got to keep on moving!" And then she's working out and doing this rigorous exercise. As I watched this I thought it was pretty funny, but then IT HIT ME... I thought to myself, "maybe if I set that song as my alarm I will be able to instantly wake up and feel motivated to work out in the morning!!" Although I haven't made it my alarm yet, I have listened to it a ton and it gets me pumped and motivated for life and anything that could come in my way! I feel undefeatable whenever I'm jamming to this song! 
(Oh the 80's... The video is pretty random and weird, but just listen to the song. Especially the chorus!)

If you are ever feeling down I would recommend listening to You Make My Dreams or Break My Stride. They are WONDERFUL!

4th of July!

For the 4th of July weekend Rees and I went up to Yuma, AZ to visit his family and have a grand ol' time celebrating Independence Day! We had a fun attending a couple BBQ's, going to the lake and jet skiing, and playing games with Rees' family! I am so grateful for this country and for the freedoms we have!

I am also getting started with digital scrapbooking... so here is my weekend in scrapbook format! It's much easier and less time consuming than the old fashion way of scrapbooking! No more cutting, gluing, or messes for me! Yay! (I got help with the design from Digital eXpress Scrapbooking and then added my own touches and pictures through photoshop. Let me tell you... I love photoshop!!)

Stroll into the past

I love cute, old looking towns/ streets and I knew a photo shoot was in order when I drove past an adorable street full of old shops, colorful buildings, and just an old town feel. So with Courtney's vintage fashion style and with my photography background we made a perfect team to go conquer this street and make a fool of ourselves posing for pictures with cars staring us down, honking, and whistling. We had such a good time! Enjoy the pictures!

Meet the beautiful lady named Courtney!
