Conversation #53: The year comes to an end…

This is going to seem so lame, but I’m sitting on the couch watching Rick Springfield sing “Jesse’s Girl” (LOVE it) while finally getting around to typing up my last blog post for the year.  I put it off all day!

I was actually at a beautiful wedding earlier with my hubby, but we left a little early because I was again suffering from a sinus headache/migraine (not sure which).  Anyway, I’m feeling a bit better now and I wanted to get in my last blog post of the year real quick.  I’m in CST so it is only 11 PM here even though the ball is about to drop in NYC. 

This has been a good year for me.  Blogging has been weird for me this year.  I quit for a while.  I got a new look.  Then I ran out of things to say (shocking I know).  Finally, I have a list of things to write about and I can’t seem to find the time and energy to just sit down and right them!  Maybe this next year.

I have also grown a lot internally, and I feel so blessed for the life God has given me.  It has been a long road at times, especially in my marriage, and I just feel like my husband and I have finally made it to a great place.  I know there will be more ups and downs, but right now we are good.  Here are just a few highlights from the last year:

January – took an unbelievable trip to the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, and we stopped at the White Sands National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns:

July – hubby took the bar exam (trust me, that was a milestone!)

November – hubby passed the bar exam (WooHoo) and we took our first trip out of the country to the Dominican Republic:

December – Hubby opened is his own law practice and we celebrated the holidays with family and friends

As you can see, much of the year was dominated by law school, and we are looking forward to a change of pace this year.  I wish all of you the best in the coming year, and I pray that God pour out His blessings on all of you.  See ya next year!

Conversation #52: The Sing-Off is BACK!

I realize most of you may not be near as excited as I am, but having grown up in the Church of Christ, surrounded by acapella music, a music competition that features it just completely wins over my heart.  You can’t fake it when there are no instruments to cover it up!

I loved some of the competitors last year, but this year is really bringing the talent.  They are all so amazing.  Here are just a few of my faves so far:

(P.S. It is on Mondays and Wednesdays on NBC if you want to check it out)

This is my season favorite so far – it is AWESOME:

I also really enjoyed this one:

A super talented group with a jazzy feel, but their harmonies are amazing:

Only my favorite song of the year I think:

And finally, The Backbeats – they are pretty great too!

You should really check out the show – I just can’t wait for the new episodes each week.  It is seriously that good (in my opinion anyway).
