Elle's Winter Recital

Here is Elle in her fall studio recital. It went pretty well despite her shy moments. Her lips are chapped from all the tongue action though! I must admit, I'm impressed with her attentativeness. She definitely wants to get it right. We're so proud of our little dancer.

Workout Playlist Recommendations

A few weeks ago I asked my Facebook friends to help me get more creative with my exercise playlist by providing three recommendations from their repertoire. I got some good ones so I thought that I would share them with you. Enjoy the sweat!


Angela Godwin
One of my favorites on my running playlist is The Who's "Who Are You". For me, the BPM matches my stride and really gets me going. I also really like "American Girl", Tom Petty. :) If you really want something different, though, try some Japanese techno. Seriously! e.g., Anything from the Dance Dance Revolution soundtrack is great!

Erin Burkholder Leaman
Fergilicious by Fergie, I know you want me by Pitbull, and Philadelphia Freedom by Elton John (i was getting desparate for the 3rd one, but it's a good song)

Cathy Schmitt
Lose yourself by eminem, its awesome..weapon of choice by fatboy slim..and definetly anything by prodigy!!!!

Nicolle Carter Warren
Vertigo by U2. American Woman by The Guess Who. Get UR Freak on by Missy Elliott. :-)

Krystal Williams
It takes two- rob base and dj ez, don't stop the music- rhianna, and I told you so- Keith urban. Pass your playlist on when you're done, sounds like a good one!

Jason Doctor
Some of KJ's favorite workout/ running tunes- It's Raining Men, Karma Chameleon, Ladies Night, Sex You Up, I Got You Babe (he likes to sing Cher's part), Copa Kabana, Wake Me Up Before you Go, Half Breed (really most anything by Cher)

Praise you by Fat Boyslim. The Verve's Bitter Sweet Symphony. Those start slow but build fast. For the best intro in the history of Rock, it's Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell.

KJ Little
True, "If I could turn back time" is a motivator. Never can go wrong with Color Me Badd, N.K.O.T.B., or Milli Vanilli. Really hitting the road hard recently with anything from "Glee".

Jennifer Lindsey
I've got some INXS that I love to use.

Kathleen Cahill Wackowski
"Dancing in the Streets" by Martha and the Vandellas (aging myself) "Shipping up to Boston" by Dropkick Murphys and for something completely different "Christmas Eve Sarajevo" by Trans Siberian Orchestra, great driving rhythms for running and maybe it will inspire you to get your Christmas Shopping done early :~)

Angie Cox McAfee
You gotta have some Top Gun Danger Zone! :) Little Rocky Eye of the Tiger... topped off with Vacation's chariots of fire! Ha!

Mindi Murphy Johnson
The Mama Mia Soundrack is the best at least for walking as the tunes are a mixture of quick and not so quick. Perhaps there might be something of interest for those who can run.
