Disney'sTeen Beach 2 came out on DVD on Friday and they were kind enough to send me a copy. Being a mom I knew my 9 year old son would be so excited, when I got home! I told him, "Guess what Mommy has...TEEN BEACH 2"! Oh my, he was excited! So it began, our "Teen Beach 2" weekend viewing. He loved it and so did I! It was just like the first one, a great mix of West Side Story ala Grease and High School Musical. My son ate up every bit of it! So much so, he asked if we could watch it again and again. Like the first one, I've now memorized songs and dance moves! So, just in case you haven't watched the sequel yet with your kids, get ready to sing and dance along to "Teen Beach 2" another catchy musical from Disney...Darn it!
Over eight million people follow PENTATONIX, and their newest video is called the "Evolution of Michael Jackson", where they do 25 different songs in the order they came out. They only do parts of them, so the whole thing is about five minutes long.

Father's Day when my daughters were little was about the hand print in plaster on a paper plate, or the ash tray from art class I never used, (I never smoked, but still have both). Today its about spending time with my girls, and even though one is living in Michigan, the other two were here to help deliver all the presents. The first was being picked up and taken to a beauty salon to get a manicure and pedicure. I never get one of these myself, because I believe I can take care of those split nails, and jagged edges myself. Women don't think that way. By the way at Ella Bliss Beauty Bar on Broadway, they do that while you enjoy a glass of wine, or in my case a barley pop. After that it was on to my favorite Pizza place, Denver Deep Dish up on 38th in the highlands. We enjoyed a masterpiece on their deck. From there downtown to the Pavilions where I enjoyed a frosty cold beer while watching the U.S... Open. (Yes there was a theme here...get Dad a beer). It wasn't finished there, the youngest then cooked me an amazing dinner complete with grilled corn, steak, and chocolate covered strawberries. Amazing. All of my daughters are so different. The oldest is an A personality seller, the middle a preachers' wife math teacher, and the third a socialite army private. I would not want them to be any other way than the way they are, and that is VERY good to their dad on Father's Day.
There are many reason why I love watching Blake Shelton on THE VOICE, mainly because he makes me laugh out loud because he's such a goofball! I love the banter between him and the other VOICE judges and contestants, but here's just another reason to love him because he's such a down to earth guy with a good heart!
Please watch this VIDEO, it will put a smile on your face!
While looking for something else--of course--I got sucked down the YouTube rabbit hole recently when I came across an 80's band I hadn't heard in years. They were big in Philadelphia, where I was living at the time, but they never broke through nationally. For that reason, I was hearing these songs for the first time in more than thirty years. What blew my mind about this experience was how quickly the lyrics and melodies came back to me and how vividly I remembered everything about my life when this music was part of it. Where I lived, who I hung out with, where I worked...all of it came into sharp relief while doing something as simple as listening to a three-minute song. I think that's my favorite thing about Kool Koncert: seeing thousands of faces light up with recognition and thousands of voices singing along. If you haven't already done so, make plans to join us at Fiddler's Green June 14th for Tears For Fears, The B-52s and Berlin. Great music and great memories guaranteed.
It started with the adorable invite from my son...
I wanted to share a few pics from last night's Mother Son Date Night with Home Depot & Chick fil A at 52nd & Wadsworth in Arvada it was so AWESOME!
What a great idea! We saw many Mothers and Sons of ALL ages spending some fun time together. We had dinner, FREE dessert, we did crafts that Home Depot provided while the COW from Chick fil A socialized with one and all!
Thank you Chick fil A and Home Depot for a fun night out with my son!
