Ever just need someone to give you those “words of wisdom” or to give you a slap on the back of your head to tell you to wake up and realize what your doing with your life. This song “Humble and Kind” sung by Tim McGraw and written by Lori McKenna makes you feel like you’re getting all the lessons in life in a four minute song. It’s a song where your parents and grandparents are nodding there head at and giving you those parent eyes secretly saying, “Do that know you hear me?” It’s that song that’s a good […]
So I have a bit of a confession…I’m a Grease Freak! Getting ready to watch the “Grease Live Musical” with Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens makes me go back to when I was 6 years old. I can’t tell you how many times I have watched the movie Grease and Grease 2. I have both movies on VHS, cassette tapes (yep, that’s me holding up my Grease tapes in the photo), and one Christmas my mom got me my own “Pink Ladies” jacket….sort of…it was red and only had my name on the front but I called it my greaser […]
There’s nothing more delightful than the winter–at least, during the holiday season. Once that’s over, you might be like me and just already tired of the cold and snow. I admit, I am a big baby when it comes to winter weather. Never was that bitter about it when I was a kid. I would roll around and make snow angels but I think it was the turn of feelings when I got my license and knew I had to drive in it. When you see your car covered in ice and you can’t open your car door it starts of the day a […]
If you are a BIG fan of Taylor Swift and also spent many nights watching marathons of the TV show Friends well you will like this. Taylor Swift performed this past week in LA and had major superstar guests out on stage with her. I’m talking Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks, Sam Hunt, and now Lisa Kudrow who reprized her role as Phoebe Buffay and performed “Smelly Cat” along with Taylor Swift. Just watching this already has my night planned of watching many re-runs of the show while on my couch drinking a hot beverage like […]
Somehow the song “Blue Moon” from The Marcels started to play in my head while reading this. Cup of coffee in your hand looking up into the sky might be a perfect way to start your day. At 6:42 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, Americans will have the opportunity to wake up to a once-in-a-blue-moon experience–that being the presence of an actual blue moon. But blue moons aren’t actually blue: While dust particles or the presence of ash in the air can occasionally cause them to look that way, they typically take on a light gray hue. In astronomical terms, a blue […]
This video will make you tear up. It’s amazing what these students did for one of their teachers. It’s also a reminder how songs affect us. They lift us up…. they make us sad…… they inspire us…. they make us FEEL. The choir at P.S. 22 in Staten Island gave one teacher the gift of a lifetime when they dedicated their performance of Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It“ to her ongoing fight against cancer. Adriana Lopez, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, can be seen in a video posted on YouTube yesterday sitting along in the school […]
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I was born and raised in Fremont. Grew up with a wonderful mom, dad, and even though I wanted a sister I got my brother Tom who I grew to love. (At least I didn’t have to worry about him stealing my makeup or clothes). Went to SJCC where I discovered my nitch for performing. I was in theatre, flag corp, and choir. It was in choir class where I discovered what I wanted to do in my life, be in broadcasting! The day after graduation I moved to Cleveland for school and from there I found my way to Findlay. It’s been a good time since!
WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE COUNTRY ARTIST?
Brad Paisley. His songs are just fun to listen to! They make me laugh (Celebrity), make me sing in my car (American Saturday Night), and make me want to slow dance (Little Moments).
FAVORITE COUNTRY SONG?
“No Hurry” by Zac Brown Band. That song just always puts me in that vacation state of mind. Where I am on a tropical beach, toes in the sand, drink in my hand, and in “No Hurry.”
WHAT DO I LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to sing and dance. Painting is something that not a lot of people see me do, let’s say it’s therapeutic. Pinterest and a glass of wine are always a fun time!
