The Kroger Song and Doughnuts
Thought I would share this snippet from yesterday, just for fun. Hubs and I team taught Beauty and the Beast for our Summer at the Movies series. Over the past several years, y'all have heard me whine and groan over making shopping lists and goi... Read more
Frim Fram Sauce (singalong)
Nothing earth-shattering in this vlog. Nothing at all. I just checked off a ton of things on my to-do list today and rewarded myself with a little ukulele time. Just goofing off. But hey, the song is food-related, so does that count?? And what t... Read more
Flippy Foldy Holdy Things (hoop vlog)
I really meant it when I said I was gonna "Elsa" that hoop flow class, let it go, and move on. I also meant it when I said you'd probably be seeing more hoop spam from me. Here is the first tiny section of Day 6. Moving on. Learning.

More Adventures on the Donut Trail
Today was another day on the Donut Trail. I feel victorious because I only ate half of an apple fritter. Sandy and I both decided the best way to finish off the trail was to buy doughnuts at each shop and deliver them to friends. It totally work... Read more
Moving On! (a hoop vlog)

This evening has me putting another Mother's Day to rest. Whew. Not gonna lie, my brain is tired! But wow, what a day.
I don't always share my teaching clips here, but I thought I'd share this one, just because... My mom was an amazing lad... Read more
Hey There Mister (revisited)
Running around, doing all the last-minute prep stuff for Mother's Day made me think of the first parody song I wrote several years ago. I grew nostalgic, so I grabbed my uke and shot a quick video in the backyard. I'm a little rusty with this on... Read more
In Six Words
Tomorrow is the last day of the Creative Sprint and it's been a good one. I feel like my brain has been well-fed this month! I had one last sprint from this week that I wanted to share with you because I think it's so SparkWorthy. The prompt was... Read more
Sing a Song Singalong
I haven't shared all of my creative sprints, but sometimes one of them seems to fit nicely in SparkLandia. This is one of those... (Oh my gosh, the thumbnail SP chose for this is hilarious. I promise, this is not a grumpy song!)

Come as You Are But Go Sleeveless
Had to take a little time off blogging; the High Holy Holidays keep me busy. (lol) But I thought I'd pop back in to share a little something from my Easter with you.

Training Hard--sorta, not really
My BFF, Shelley with an ey, is training for a half-marathon. She tried posting some video clips about it on our Instagram (@realshellsquared). We both struggle with Instagram stories, just can't get the hang of it. Even with Audrey sitting us do... Read more
