one more new song in 2014

Obsessed. Who is this Omi character and why can’t I stop dancing to this song in my kitchen!?

Found this along with many other new-to-me songs on Spotify’s Best Songs of 2014 You Haven’t Heard…Yet playlist.

what’s on my playlist


As I’ve shared before, each season I keep a playlist on Spotify full of what I’m listening to at the moment. Everything I remotely like even just a little bit gets added to this list. It’s big and all over the place. Here’s Fall 2014:

Within that playlist, there is always a five or six song rotation that changes every three to five days. Here’s what’s on that list now:

Hozier // Sedated

Nothing but Thieves // Graveyard Whistling

Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen // When You Open Your Eyes

Walk the Moon // Shut Up and Dance 

Trevor Hall // Green Mountain State

And unfortunately I’m really digging the new Taylor Swift song that was released today. Dang…

Happy Friday Y’all!

Happy Friday! Glad to have a free day/evening after work today. Planning to come home and yoga it up. Birthday dinner tonight at Mom and Dad’s, birthday dinner out with Andrew’s parents tomorrow night…Woop!

I see this weekend as the calm before the storm…after this weekend, it’s full on holiday…especially since Thanksgiving and Christmas are so close together.

I’ve been meaning to share my crazy obsessed love for a few songs…these have been on repeat for a few weeks and they are so good, I’m tempted to keep listening to them instead of Christmas music…ahh just kidding.


life is better with…the Summer Strut Playlist

For three summers now, I’ve looked forward to the Slate Culture Gabfest’s Summer Strut playlist. This year is no exception, it’s fantastic! I love it especially because the songs submitted do not have to be current…I’m able to discover so many great songs I’ve missed!

Right now I’m currently obsessed with these songs:
