MOLLY KATE KESTNER – HIS DAUGHTER

Molly became a YouTube sensation off of this video of her singing a song she wrote that recently hit the ‘net. The crazy thing is, she recorded “His Daughter” on her phone that happens to sport a cracked screen and even wrote the song in just 15 minutes. Apparently, she’s been uploading and sharing videos of original music that she plays on the piano as she sings and sharing it with friends and family via social media platforms.

She says of the song “His Daughter”, that it wasn’t written about her own experiences but actually inspired by friends and other women who have dealt with situations described in the song. Molly never expected for it to go viral, much less for it to resonate with so many around the world (“His Daughter” has more than 6 million views at this point).

This goes to show that a true artist/musician does not need flashing lights and flashy attire to create music that touches the heart and souls of so many.

Best of luck, Molly!

BIRTHDAY TREATS & FRIENDS

ImageSo I come home after work and my friend is just sitting on my couch, eating noodles and watching anime like she owns the place.

Comfortable, much?

ImageI head upstairs and decide that I’m going to jump back into my workout routine. Getting back into the jist of things wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. Actually, I enjoy working out but I wasn’t feeling all that well for the last few days.

I pulled out my ladybug yoga mat that I love so much and did some stretching. Then I watched my favorite workout videos on YouTube (I don’t know what dvd is worth buying so I stick to YouTube for now, lol) and started to pump it! XD

After the main workout I still had some energy left in me so I decided to look up some Zumba videos. Now I’m addicted!

I probably looked like this the whole time:

Not really. It was more like:

Boss status.

This is just disturbing.

Anyway, I did my thing and then I went downstairs to a nice surprise.

A friend of ours stopped by and brought belated birthday goodies!

Thanks @peepmykicks_!!

Can’t go wrong with that!

Then, another friend walks in and she plops this on the table:

How could you?

It’s safe to say, I didn’t eat any last night. Yeah, I’m proud.

BUT, that doesn’t mean tonight I won’t have a go.

Can’t wait to head home!

Oh, almost forgot. I got myself a nice little treat for my day of birth as well.

Until! oxox

Pumpkin Carving!!

ImageI came home one day to find a bunch of pumpkins on the dining table. That meant it’s pumpkin carving tiiiime! A few days later, we did exactly that.
Image

I’d never carved a pumpkin before. The most I’ve done was paint them, which was still fun, but carving them was definitely a new experience that I’m glad I was there to have. It just isn’t October and definitely not Halloween if there aren’t carved pumpkins around.

ImageSomebody was trying to get in on the fun too.

ImageMmmm, looks tasty.

ImageThis was the first pumpkin and it turned out great!

ImageBy the way, the inside of a pumpkin looks kinda gross. lol

Imageewwww

Time for round two!!

ImageImageImageImageThe mouth looked like the Wu-Tang logo to me. After we drew the face on it though it looked like an orange bat. lol

Image

We got pretty hungry after all that carving and had an amaaazing dinner courtesy of the beau’s BBQ skills. Yum!

This is random but while everyone was outside I took a beautiful shot of the moon. I can’t believe my camera zoomed in so well.

ImageSo pretty. ❤

I love our pumpkins and I hope you did too, pumpkin! 😉 oxoxoxox

Football Sunday (Oct. 6th)

“Sunday Morning” by Maroon 5, that’s what I felt like listening to when I woke up last Sunday. Yeah, it’s a little late, but better late than never. I won’t be enjoying a “Football Sunday” this Sunday because of New … Continue reading
