Joshua Bell At Home With Friends Review

I will be the first to admit this was not my kind of CD. I had to really keep an open mind listening to it. Since this was not my normal style of music I had to look at it from the point of view of someone who might enjoy this. Here is what I came up with.

A few words to describe this CD would be classy, smooth, crisp, wonderfully played, and meaningful. The way the instruments played so smoothly and in sync was joyous to listen to. The piano, the trumpets, and all the great instruments were well played. Check it out!

Here are the track listings.

I Loves You Porgy featuring Chris Botti, trumpet

Come Again featuring Sting, vocals

Oblivion featuring Carel Kraayenhof, bandoneon

Cinema Paradiso featuring Josh Groban, vocals

Para featuring Tiempo Libre, various

Maybe So featuring Edgar Meyer Sam Bush and Mike Marshall, strings

Harry Connick Jr. YOUR SONGS

Ok, so honestly when I saw Harry Connick Jr on the cover of this CD I thought of him being on Will & Grace and was thinking did he sing? I thought maybe it was other people singing the songs and to my surprise it was him. So putting the CD in for the first time I was not excited at all. So here we are a few weeks later and I am writing my blog review and to my surprise I have listened to this CD almost every single day since I got it. Who would of thought that it would help me relax, sing, smile, think about memories, and enjoy my drive into work.

I didn't find one or two songs that I liked. I found FOUR that I listen to almost everyday. Every morning now on my way to work I sing Can't Help Falling in Love With You, And I Love Her, Close To You, and my all time favorite Your Song. I enjoy this CD more than I ever thought possible.

Here is a list of all the great songs on the CD.

Album Tracklisting (Originally performed by):

All The Way (Frank Sinatra)

Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)

Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis Presley)

And I Love Her (The Beatles)

(They Long To Be) Close To You (The Carpenters)

Besame Mucho

The Way You Look Tonight

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack)

Your Song (Elton John)

Some Enchanted Evening

And I Love You So (Don McLean)

Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)

Smile (Charlie Chaplin)

Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)

Here are some great links to check out Harry Connick Jr.

Rock of Ages Broadway Cast Recording HOT!!!

I have never been a big fan of CD's from Broadway shows. I bought one and have not had a good experience. So when I got the Rock of Ages CD to listen to I had little to no expectations that I would actually like it. Next thing you know I am singing Don't Stop Believin in the car.
I still will admit that I am not a big fan of these types of CD's but if you are this is one to get. There is a lot of classic rock songs that are just amazing. The great thing about this is that I have another addition to this review and my sister just came back from New York and actually saw the Rock of Ages show and said it was AWESOME!!! She even got a picture with American Idol's Constantine Maroulis! So we have decided to see this show when I go to New York in November. I am excited and am looking forward to a great musical performance. Can't wait to report back on how the show was.
Here are all the great tracks on this CD. Check out all the hot songs!!!
Just Like Paradise / Nothin' But A Good Time
Sister Christian
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
I Wanna Rock
We're Not Gonna Take It
Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
I Want To Know What Love Is
Cum On Feel The Noize / We're Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again
The Final Countdown
Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)
High Enough
I Hate Myself For Loving You / Heat Of The Moment
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Can't Fight This Feeling
Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Oh Sherrie
The Search Is Over
Don't Stop Believin
Here are some great links for you to check out the making of the soundtrack and a link to buy this great CD.

My New Idea

So a couple of months back my sister starting selling Mary Kay and I thought to myself I really don't wear make-up and then realized Mary Kay is so much more than make-up. Again, I thought to myself gee I barely wash my face with more than soap and water. Not the biggest form of advertisement here now am I!!

Guess I have never liked my complextion. Thought I always had uneven skin tone, redness, my freckles don't help either, so this was my first real attempt in my adult life to try taking care of my face. The one thing I can tell you I noticed right away was that my foundation went on much smoother. All of that dead skin and dirt of my face was being removed. Since I wasn't really washing with product before this was all new to me. I was excited and realized I didn't have to put on as much make up either because it seemed to be covering a bit better.

So now I have started to sell Mary Kay more because I love the products and I want to share with others some of these great products. I am hoping all of my friends can check out my personal website and register and that way I can share monthly speicals with you and you can enter to win my great giveways!!

Check it out!!

Diane Birch CD Review

First off when I first got this CD I wasn't too excited to have to listen to this. I thought to myself great, not interested but let's see. So when I opened it up my daughter said to me, (who is 15), why don't you ever get any good CD's? I said well check it out and let me know what you think. To my surprise she listened to the whole CD. We were getting ready to drive somewhere and she pops the CD in the car and says let me play my favorite songs for you???? Yes, that many question marks came up in my head! First off, I wasn't expecting her to say she listened to the whole CD and then have her tell me she wanted to share her favorites with me!!! needless to say this CD is pretty awesome. Cool enough for my 15 year old daughter to want to jam to it as we drive down the road. Some powerful and meaningful songs on this CD. I call it my Sunday afternoon CD. If you ever want to sit around and relax and listen to great music this is a CD for you. I have to say that REWIND is my favorite song!!! What a powerful song. Check it out on her myspace page for yourself!!!

Check out this link to listen to FIRE ESCAPE
Then check out Diane Birch on My Space You can listen to some clips from her CD on here also.


It has been awhile since I have posted a blog. TOO LONG! I have been so busy with work, school, life, etc that I haven't had time for anything. So now that things have calmed down I have decided to start back blogging. I have enjoyed doing it and now I finally can start back. I miss my CVS deals and sharing those great deals that I found with everyone.

January Where Has The Time Gone?

First off, my last post was on January 2nd. Now I can't even believe that today is the 19th. It is a good thing because I live in a very cold area and the faster winter goes the better. The bad thing is I had to look at my store ads to even figure out what today's date is. So basically January has come, has gone and I don't have a clue what is going on. Way to busy sometimes! Today I am off of work and have decided to make it a day about me and trying to get done all of the things that I couldn't get done this weekend. I didn't get much done this weekend because I was a swim meets all weekend doing volunteer work. So needless to say stuff is still not organized, put away or cleaned.

Hopefully this month and time will slow down a bit and I won't feel as busy. I seem to not be able to get the things done that I need to but hoping that things change. Getting organized a bit today should help things.

I am looking forward to more blogs and trying to keep up with all the ones I follow. Stay warm and hope your new year is all that you wanted it to be.

Money Making Opportunity You Data

I can't believe that I made $6.40 this week by checking in to a site, looking at ads and checking out websites. During this time I actually found a few sites of interest and added a few favorites to my site lists. If you are interested in making a few extra dollars each week by just visiting and checking out some websites you need to check out You Data.

You Data is a site where advertisers are basically buying your attention. You don't have to put anything on a blog or wait for someone to click on something. You visit and login to the You Data site and they give you opportunities to earn money. I visited sites such as Pampered Chef, All Recipes and many other great sites. This is such a great way to earn a few bucks.

On the main page click Sign Up to begin the process. I have the money deposited into my paypal account and every Friday they deposit the money in your account. What a great opportunity!
