#CelebratingSummer

Thank you to the great towns around DC who welcomed us the last couple weeks. From Hyattsville, Herndon to Arlington and Silver Spring— it was an absolute blast. There is so much history, culture and things to brag about for each place we  stopped in. This fun summer field trip really opened my eyes and mind… motivating me to venture out beyond my comfort zone! Check out our #CelebratingSummer seriesonline. Stay tuned for our next stop…

Musical matters

IMG_8130Do you play an instrument? I grew up in South Korea so I really had no choice. If you’re familiar with Korean culture you know that learning the piano or a violin is pretty much a given. I chose piano and played through my adolescent years. I was competitive and very good. In the 4th grade I performed Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5  and the audience was blown away. It took a lot of practice and practice is what I did hard. Perhaps so hard I began to hate it. The minute my parents said I could quit.. I did faster than you could say crescendo. Til this day.. it’s one of my biggest regrets.

My daughter at 2 1/2 comes alive with music. People are surprised by how extroverted and coordinated she is. I have to admit.. she impresses me too. One day we were walking by a music shop and she insisted on going in. She told me she really wanted music. I told her we’d give it a try.

So we signed up for Bach 2 Rock’s Rock City class. It was $20 for a 45 minute session. The class is a drop-off class for 3-5 year olds but Adora fit in great. She got to play a violin, and did some rhythm and movement-based activities. In the end there’s musical story-time. The whole idea is to introduce them to the fundamentals of making music. B2R has all kind of classes for many age groups– they even have a Battle of the Bands in the summer! I think you can tell from the pics of her first class (and a lil video below) we’ll be back.

Someone’s Got Moves Like Jagger

Pumpkin picking

I can’t remember when I fell in love with Fall. All I know is that I can’t help going ga-ga over every gourd and pumpkin. I decided to take the baby to pick out a pumpkin. You can tell.. she got one at the size a 10 month old can handle. I couldn’t stop saying all day .. just how perfect this day was. The weather was breezy, sun shining, grass crinkling beneath our shoes… and endless smiles that never get old. It’s more than picking pumpkins… this was truly a moment of recognizing all the great things the present has to offer.

 

 

Happy Anniversary Kirk & Mike

Big congrats to Kirk McEwen and Mike O’Meara the funny co-hosts of the Kirk &  Mike Show on 105.9 The Edge. I love being part of this show daily and can honestly say they always help put me in a good mood early in the morning even when I’m fighting it.

PHOTOS: K&M Anniversary Party

The dynamic duo had a little party to celebrate 1 year of being on air together in hometown Herndon at Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern. I brought the whole clan out to celebrate. I think the highlight was the guys got to meet CHIN!  Congrats K&M.. here’s to many more years of cracking us up during DC’s most terrible morning drive.

The party gets out shout out on WUSA

Ask Chin: Do you Djay?

It’s been some time since we’ve asked Chin anything. This time we wanna know if she can spin the decks. She’s not internationally known but I assure you she’s “Big in Herndon.”

Sue Sylvester would be proud!

The Herndon High School cheerleading squad should have no shame putting their hands up in the air these days!  They’re Virginia’s new Cheerleading Northern Regional Champs! This calls for an ‘ASK CHIN’ moment. Take it away MOM!

 Congrats to my little sister Coach Jenny Goff and her knock-out cheerleading squad at Herndon High School.  They beat out some FIERCE competition for the #1 honor of being named 2010 Regional Champions. Now it’s off to States this Saturday in Richmond where we are sending them kudos of good luck!

Way to go Hornets!
