flashback Monday

When I was in middle school and high school I became really good friends with Amy Workman and her entire family. We did shows together, sang together in choirs, heck, I practically lived at their house for a couple of years. I was even kind of adopted into the family. Mama Workman will forever be my extra mom. We used to have sing-things at the Workman's house. We would all get together with an amazing pianist and take turns singing whatever song we felt like. Those are some of my happiest memories. At one of the last sing-things Mama Workman sang "I Think I'm Going Out of My Head" with Laura and Emily in three parts it was awesome!
The Workman family in addition to being kind and funny are incredibly musical- some of the best singers I have ever met. They all have their unique sounds and can do the most amazing things with their voices. Laura, one of Amy's younger sisters can mimic any woman's voice you have ever heard. She has some YouTube videos that you have to check out! She dubs in her own voice for the Disney Princesses and honestly, you can not tell the difference.

Laura and Emily are actually doing an acapella competition and win according to how many hits they get on their post so be sure to check that out too! Itis on the same site, the post is "singing sisters."
Workman Family, if you read this, I miss you!!!

You remember that Tim was my roommate at Utah Boy's State? He had me listen to opera (which I still like) and I had him listen to punk and grunge. I don't think I made a believer out of him...

I had totally forgotten that you knew Tim! Man, what a small world. I don't think, even if you had a year, you would ever convince Tim to like punk and grunge. He's a purist. =)
