Selena Shrine

Honoring Selena almost 20 years since her death (following my initial visit shortly after this shrine was built)

The end of this ♣March♣ marks two decades since our ☼Mother Earth☼ lost the late great ♥Selena Quintanilla-Pérez♥

Selena Shrine

Selena‘s spirit graces the shores of Corpus Christi, Texas

Yet this †legend† lives on as she leads her ✌legacy✌ through her ♪song♫!

Selena Shrine

Selena Immortalized

Her eternal beauty and sweet ♫voice♪ plus warm ♥heart♥ have gone immortal …

Selena Shrine

Selena, although short-lived on Earth, made her mark in ♪music♫ history

Selena‘s iconic style has inspired:

Selena ~ Dreaming of You

Selena‘s single, ♪I Could Fall in Love♫, among other soulful tracks, drew countless crowds to fall in ♥love♥ with her as she reigns from †Heaven†

Siempre Selena

¡Siempre Selena! ~ Selena always will hold a special place in our ♥hearts♥ ~ she definitely is ♪A Million to 1♫

R.I.P., Selena (April 16, 1971-March 31, 1995)

During my 12-hour round road trip to and from S-TX

My ♪jams♫ kept me company,

Playlist

Before I added these ♪tracks♪ to my latest ♫playlist♫, I actually liked the ♪songs♫ before I found out who some of the ♫artists♪ were ~ yet now like them more! Selena‘s Bidi Bidi Bom Bom with the original sample hyped me up as I drove down to Corpus Christi + I had to blast my fave tune of the moment, Kelly Clarkson‘s ♥Heartbeat♥ Song!

Along with one of my †CHRISTmas† gifts to my Dad!

Bush 41

I feel like I can relate to G-Dub as a child who greatly admires my dad, a fellow veteran

Plus, I dug the perks of my Shell Fuel Rewards!

Shell FR

Syncing up my plastic to my membership account provides more perks!

Who doesn’t like $aving 20-cents per gallon of gas?

Workout Wednesday: Just Dance

I wasn’t called Lady Gaga for nothing when I taught down south. No, I never wore raw meat, but I lived by lyrics of one of her first famed jams: ♪Just Dance♫

So, I dare you … No, make that double-dare you

to get up and dance!!!

My Valley bestie sent me this video of one of our old school tracks that we listened to from my playlist on our way from Padre☼

The choreography is insane! Pick a song with R&Bs, as in rhythm and beats, then sway away!
