Look at what I got todayyyyyy :)

A Ukulele!

I have been thinking about getting a ukulele for a couple of months now.  I'm pretty sure it takes me about two months to convince Josh (and myself) that I actually want to try something for real. (I am a very impulsive person, I'll have you know).  This definitely wasn't an impulsive purchase because I was getting rather obsessed with getting this magical little instrument.  Every song that has a ukulele in it I would imagine myself playing around a campfire with friends or dueting with Joshua.  Can you see the fun that is in store for us now that we have it?  You better believe it.

I think I'm going to name it "Precious".  Mostly because I just watched all three Lord of the Rings movies last week and partly because of my obsession with acquiring this little instrument.  

The first songs on my list to learn are:


So far so I've got all the chords down for these songs, it's just the strumming and the switching between said chords that are slowing me down.  I suspect by the end of the week, I'll be sitting on the beach with an open, dollar-filled case serenading passers-by....

...or, at the very least, singing songs with Joshua and not having to stare at my hands.  Sounds like a plan, eh?


  1. Can't believe you finally got it! This will for sure be a labor of love. Can't wait to hear it. And precious is quite fitting.

  2. AWESOME!! :D I love both songs so much!! I always play them on repeat!
