The Five Strings are AMAZING!!

The Five Strings are a performing family band made up of five siblings from St. George Utah. Ranging in ages from 6 to 16, their audiences are amazed at the variety of music they play at such a young age. In addition to violin, the group features mandolin, guitar, piano, ukulele, as well as singing and dancing.
Check out one of their videos below...

The Five Strings have recently returned to Utah from Nashville Tennessee, where they were under instruction of some of the top music and dance teachers. The Five Strings have performed for a variety of audiences from all over the world. A few of their favorite venues they have made appearances at include; Branson Missouri, Tuacahn Amphitheater, Nashville, TN, and performing for the top resorts throughout the islands of Hawaii.

In 2013 they released their first album and since then have released 2 more. The Five Strings' love and dedication of music shows from the second they raise their bows. They wish to thank all of those that have had an impact in their lives so far.

I was blessed to be able to finally meet them all today at the America's Freedom Festival! I got goosebumps as I listen to them and watched them perform. They are all very talented and AMAZING!

If you ever get the chance to go watch them perform make sure you do! You can visit their website to see when they are playing next and like them on FB here. My husband and I listened to some of their music on our way home from their show and we love it!

A special thank you to this awesome family for touching my life with their uplifting spirits and musical talents!

Planning our luau party is going to be smooth sailing thanks to Oriental Trading!

We are excited they have a huge selection of tropical party supplies to pick from. Including party favors, Hawaiian leis, grass skirts, party games, kids' crafts, recipes and much more!

First, we are going to decorate the tables...

These paper centerpieces are easy to construct and make any table into a tropical destination!

Handing out party favors at our beach party will allow our guests to take a bit of the luau back home with them...

These Pineapple Favor Boxes will hold all the luau party supplies we want to add, and yet each can stand on its own and look like a great pineapple at the same time.

We can't wait to try the Beach Scene "Dirt" Cups Recipe...

These are so cute! We know they are going to be a huge hit and that everyone will love them!

It is going to be so much fun having our kids and grandkids over for our luau party. Maybe grandpa will even do some hula dancing for us. :) I have the absolutely perfect Hawaiian music for our party!

    Our Review:

    Kindergarten Cop 2 is a fun movie the whole family will absolutely love! It has lots of action, comedy and romance. That's my kind of movie! We thought it was pretty funny when Mr. Reed (Dolph Lundgren) fed the kids chocolate and they all went wild. He didn't know what to do to get them to calm down.

    Then Mr. Reed notices Molly, one of his students, is acting a little off. He saw her dad being rough on her when he picked her up from school. He found out her dad lost his job and was having a hard time. Mr. Reed had a talk with him and told him he would help him find work and not to take things out on Molly. I thought that was really nice that Mr. Reed would help Molly out like that.

    It was really cute to see all of the kids fall in love with Mr. Reed after he had been their teacher for a little while. You could tell he really grew fond of the kids as well. Bill Bellamy is great in this film too. You don't want to miss this movie, our family gives it a thumbs up!

    The classic brick-pattern quilting adds a touch of elegance and a beautiful finish to our bed. I absolutely love how soft it is and the sky blue color is so pretty! I will be sleeping like a queen tonight with my fabulous new coverlet!

    The 2 ounce poly-fil batting adds just enough weight to make you feel snuggled in but still allows for the breathability, one of the best attributes of rayon from Bamboo. This is very important to us since my husband and I get so hot at night!
