off I go!

I have left JT with a fridge stocked with pizza and stuffed peppers (his fav) and am hitting the road for the night. Work event in the OKC + a cupdate (cupcake+date) with lovely coworkers + sleepover with my long lost friend Candace + whatever fun Saturday holds

When I go on trips, I like to have a few good CDs to last me. It's a dire, dire situation when I have a song in my head and cannot immediately listen to it. Problem: my CD burner happens to be broken. Plus: JT bought me a new stereo system last Christmas and I can plug in a USB packed with the songs of quite a few CDs. MAJOR PLUS: I just got three new CDs that I absolutely love so far!

Ben Rector
I went to high school with Ben, and now he is all grown up, married, and commanding audiences across the US with his amazing music. I hadn't really kept up with his music career since he was in a local band, but I'm so glad I bought his new CD!

Bon Iver

My friend Kacie is pretty much the hippest girl I know and my go-to girl for staying up on the music of today. She put the song "Skinny Love" in her mix CD she made for me last fall, and I was sold. This artist has a really unique sound. It's catchy...and organic? Is that too snobby of an adjective to use to describe him? Anyway, I like it and I'm excited about singing along and car dancing!


I got this CD sampler and have loved the sound of this. The songs I've heard are so different. Keeps you on your toes. I am used to the unique acoustic Waterdeep sound they pretty much invented, but this is refreshing! These are some creative people!

If I know Candace, I will come back soon with lots and lots of pictures!
