Summer Playlist {Song #9: Something In The Water}

So, I've been M.I.A. for awhile and I'm not talking "Paper Planes" MIA, haha. Yes, lame joke.  Anyways, I haven't forgotten about the rest of my summer playlist which I totally meant to have done by now, but oh well, it's still summer so it's ok.

If any of you are the least bit familiar with Hillsong United, you'll know this next artist if not for her name, but definitely for her voice.  She has written some awesome worship songs that can be found on a number of Hillsong albums and her vocal abilities are fantastic.  So, when I saw her album, I didn't have second thoughts about buying it.  This song I've chosen for my Summa Playlist is by far my favorite on her album and a super duper choice for any playlist in my opinion.   Therefore, I give you Something In The Water by Brooke Fraser.

Artist Spotlight: {JT Hodges}

About two weeks ago, my co-worker and I went to the KVOO station and had the opportunity to meet an up-and-coming country music artist, JT Hodges.  We also got to hear him play a few of his songs most of which were written by him.  I was very impressed with him and thought about sneaking a sampler CD out, haha.

JT's parents are both exceptionally talented musicians: father studied at Juilliard as a concert pianist and his mother had a record label.  His father opened up the first multi-track recording studio in Ft. Worth, TX where he spent a lot of time at while growing up.  I won't recount his entire life-story but you can click here to learn more.

I would totally go see him again if he comes through Tulsa again.  Be on the lookout for this guy - they're saying he's the next Gary Allan or Keith Urban!

Oh, and as you can see below, he's really attractive. And he has stunning blue eyes.

{Erica & Eric 6.4.11}

This past weekend, I had the absolute privilege of being a part of one of my best friends from college wedding in Plano, TX.  Erica came into my life at the beginning of my Senior year in college as one of my g-littles in the sorority we were a part of.  Our "phamily," as we call it, became extremely close during that year and really encouraged each other in our walks with the Lord. 

Katie, Caitlin, Erica, Me at Initiation

It was such a fun weekend with Erica and all the girls in the wedding & house party.  We had a yummy dinner at Buca di Beppo.


Erica asked me to "assist" her during the wedding - kind of like a "lady in waiting" is how I termed it, hehe.  She is such a huge blessing in my life and I was so excited to be a part of her wedding.




Afterwards, a bunch of us OSU Alums hung out.  It was so good seeing old friends and making new ones!


Erica & Eric - I am SO happy for you both!  I pray that the Lord blesses this new chapter you are beginning together as husband and wife.  I love you both!
