It's Been a Long Time...

Hello everyone! Again, sorry it's been a long time since I last posted. The truth is, we just haven't done anything that exciting or worth blogging about this past week. We have just been hitting the books hard, and focusing on getting back into the swing of things.  Today, I'm gonna do kind of a combined post of a few different things.

First of all, last week I had a group piano lesson, and it was awesome! We have them once a month, and all of her students will meet together one Saturday a month and play our music pieces for each other, and we will get feedback on what to work on - it's really helpful.  Anyway, the group lesson we had last week was a special one. Ms. Covert, a friend of my teacher, who is pretty well-known, came to give us helpful tips on how to practice, and different techniques to try, to get more out of our practice sessions.

The next thing i'm gonna post is a fashion post - colored pants!

Colored pants (or jeans) are I think super stylish, and are kind of the opposite of dark pants and a colored top. It makes your outfit look new and fresh! (And if you would like a real example other than the pics below, I'm wearin' colored pants in the pic above ^^^)

Have a great week!

I'm Currently...

Hey! Sorry ya'll for not posting in forever. Things have been so busy with the holidays and everything. But were getting back on schedule to waking up early, starting school, and what not.  Today i'm going to do a "I'm Currently" post, and give you some helpful things you might like to check out.

First of all...

I'm Currently Watching:

 For Christmas, my sister Hannah, got a TV show series, about a deaf woman, who has a hearing dog, and works for the F.B.I. because of her ability to read lips.  It's a really good show, if you just want to watch something light-hearted, but not too cheesy. The show is called Sue Thomas: F.B.I. Eye.

I'm Currently Playing:

This next book I'm currently using, is a music book that you can play on the piano, guitar, or a vocal book.  There are some great songs in the book, including some TobyMac songs, Casting Crowns songs, Natalie Grant, Matt Maher, and many more great songs. I have really enjoyed playing from this book in my free-time. I would say it is a Level 3/intermediate level book, from what I have played so far.

I'm Currently Listening to:

For Christmas, I got two TobyMac CD's, that are really awesome! They are so peppy, and so fun to dance around to, I don't think I have listened to any other music this week, other than that!
The first album I got was his Eye on it album:

If you do get this album, my favorite song on it, would have to be, Steal My Show. You can click HERE to preview the song. Click HERE to hear the story behind the song.

The other TobyMac album I got was his album Tonight, and I really love that one too! I think my favorite song on that album would be the song, Tonight! Click HERE to hear that song.

 I'm Currently Reading:

Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott. This is an old book, and it's pretty long, but it really good so far!

 That's all for now! Hope you have enjoyed my recommendations, and have found them somewhat helpful! Have a great weekend!

P.S - I am in the middle of trying to find a good devotion, but I love the author, Kay Arthur. I love her style of writing and the layout of her text. I especially love how she allows you to write in the book and fill in the blanks.
