Music Monday on Walkersvillemom

I’m still so happy that I was able to attend the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Indianapolis that I thought I’d share my favorite version of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.     If you’d like to read more about my trip, head over to The Road We’ve Shared.

Music Monday – Jessse

Music Monday on Walkersvillemom

I’ve always been a big Carly Simon fan – thanks to my mother.   “You’re So Vain” was a staple around our house, along with “Mockingbird,” “Anticipation,” and of course, “Attitude Dancing.”   But, as I got older and started experiencing my own heart breaks, I found my own favorite:  Jesse     Do you have … Continue reading

Music Monday – “I’m a Bee Gees fan”

I Love the Bee Gees

      Yes, there you have it.  Ridicule if you must.  Trust me, I heard it all growing up.  Everyone loved to tease me about my love of the Gibb brothers – at this age, I don’t care anymore. So today’s video is one of my favorites “You Win Again.” First, there’s a great … Continue reading

Hello! It’s Me

Music Monday on Walkersvillemom

Music Mondays   During the A to Z Challenge, one of the new blogs I found that quickly became a favorite was Maybe It’s Just Me.  I loved Andrea’s theme – 70’s music.  Every day there was a new video that took me back.  It was great!  I kinda miss it now that April is … Continue reading
