A Little Music Anyone?

2.13.2012

February 13, 2012

When I have to endure a very long and painful night of studying (and by that I mean every night) it soothes my soul to listen to a little music. I've always been a fan of big band jazz, but I never feel like the music is completely enjoyed unless it's on a record player. The record player was made for that kind of music!
Luckily I am an awesome wife and bought this record player as a Christmas gift for Rion last year (obviously it was a completely selfless act).
Now, the Satchmo can be heard belting out of our little record player- and a smile can be seen on my face in spite of the pile of homework that promises to suffocate me. Who knows, maybe an impromptu dance may come out of this!

I love old records, my husband and I collect them. I avoid work while listening to records too, but meh it's ok if the music is sweet and it get's you dancing. Party on girlie.

Ha you are OBVIOUSLY a very selfless creature : ) I never really understood the record player fad until my boyfriend put his in my apartment. Um, hooked.

Found you from Lena's blog. She seems like a sweetie. And it's nice to meet you too!

Oh oh oh! Thanks for reminding me I have a record player! TOOOTALLY forgot.. I think I'm overdue for some Fiddler on the Roof soundtrack or some Bach.. Must convince my husband to dig it out of the woodwork and set it up for us.. I think that's how I'm going to spend my Saturday!
Happy weekend!
