three things this tuesday

Some older readers might remember my “ten things this tuesday” series, so we’re doing a bit of a throw back post with just three things of note this Tuesday:

1) My interview at Lifting Revolution

Through being a FitFluential Ambassador, I have been introduced to a group of truly inspirational individuals. One of them that I recently met was Taylor over at Lifting Revolution. She interviewed me about my healthy living journey, so check out her blog for the full video featuring me: Alicia Tells How She Did It.  She asked great questions about how I got started, how yoga has changed me, how I fit events into a healthy lifestyle and some fun random ones as well!

2) September Ohio Blogging Association Meetup Update

The Cleveland members of the Ohio Blogging Association are still going to meet up on Tuesday, September 18th. Join us for happy hour on East 4th starting at 5:30PM.  Then, whomever wants to head over to the baseball game can purchase walk-up tickets the night-of. Easy breezy! Please RSVP over at the Facebook event page so I know how many seats to save at Wonder Bar on East 4th that evening.

3) Remember.

Remember where you were physically on that fateful day eleven years ago today. Remember the person you were then. Recognize the person you are now – both because of what happened that day and because of those choices you’ve made after it. Consider the person you can become eleven years from now – based on the decisions you make today. But never forget those lessons from the past as they can guide you through the future.

ten things this tuesday: karaoke edition

If you were on Twitter last night, you might have seen some ridiculous tweets about an activity that highly enjoy: karaoke! Exhibit A:

That Twitter conversation lead to some ridiculous moments which included a lot of laughing at my kitchen table. I love my ladies. Check out Julie’s post for more tweets from last night.

It got me thinking of the days when our friends would regularly meet up at a local dive bar on Saturday nights for some cheap drinks and karaoke. There were always just enough people to keep things flowing and entertaining, but just enough where you could easily sing three or four songs in an evening if you wanted to. Plus, the DJ is an old high school buddy that always takes care of us!

Since I’m already humming those tunes we’d all used to belt out, why not share them today – in our usual Tuesday fashion:


1. I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston: This is MY song and it’s a must sing of mine. Every night, every time. I get seriously mad when someone else sings it. Be warned.

2. It’s Raining Men – The Weather Girls: I keep this one of file for the always bound to happen “ladies group sing” number.

3. Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond: I really enjoy that Hans enjoys karaoke as much as I. I don’t think I’ve ever told him, but I always loves when he busts out this oldie but goodie.

4. Piano Man – Billy Joel: At our bar, there’s a gentleman that ALWAYS sings this song – but he also plays his own harmonica throughout. It’s pretty sweet.

5. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen: My girl Stacie busts this out like it’s nobody’s business. You go girl.

6. Love Shack – B-52s: While you would expect this to be a guy-girl duet, I prefer to sing this with my great friend and maid of honor Dana. She makes one mean Fred Schneider.

7. Rebel Yell – Billy Idol: This is a staple of another one of our friend’s repertoire. Guy has the fist pump down.

8. These Dreams – Heart: This is my go-to slow song. Sometimes you need something that everyone’s not expecting.

9. Only The Good Die Young – Billy Joel: One of Hans’ standbys, and it’s just a feel good tune. Gets everyone moving!

10. I Got You Babe – Sonny & Cher: When I do get talked into a duet with Hans, it’s almost always to this song. I have the right hairstyle, not so much Cher’s vocal range. You win some, you lose some.

It’s your turn – what song are you singing on karaoke night?
