Hello! This afternoon I figured I would pop in and share the latest batch of songs I have put together to get me out of my seat and off to the gym.
Getting a new playlist of upbeat music together always motivates me to get myself ready to break a sweat, whether it be out for a run on the trails or circuit training at-home or at a fitness center. Here is the latest music I have been loving, bookmarking, and downloading!

• Problem – Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea
• She Looks So Perfect – 5 Seconds of Summer
• Stay With Me – Sam Smith (<- yup, I’m still obsessed.)
Per usual, I’m ending the list with slow jam to cool you down!
I actually just finished putting this list together a few hours ago, so I can’t wait to upload it onto my phone and take with me to my next workout.
Speaking of workouts, today’s was a no-brainer since I planned to hop into Fitness Pilates class at lunch time in the middle of running a million errands.
This one killed me (in the best way possible) and incorporated a lot of equipment including a glider and yoga block. I really can’t get enough of this Pilates strengthening class this summer!
After I left the gym, I went on with my errand running and stopped into Quiznos for lunch before I actually ate my own arm off. My appetite has been through the roof lately!
Turkey Lite on wheat (light on the dressing) with all.the.veggies. Literally.
(And no… I’m not preggo.)
(Just incredibly hungry… most of the time, apparently.)
(Metabolism spike perhaps?)
(Lets hope so!)
Well I guess that’s enough rambling for now. I hope you enjoy the jams.
I know I will!

Hello and Happy Memorial Day to you Americans out there!
Currently, I am still sitting in my pajamas, sipping my coffee late in the morning, I am loving the excuse that today is a “holiday” morning, so I don’t really “have” to do much. As much as we are enjoying our barbecues, sunshine, parties, and first few days of the summer, it’s important to remember why and what we are celebrating.
And it’s not over any attempt at making red, white, and blue food, either.
*Remembering the men and women who lost their lives serving our country in the armed forces and military troops, and thinking and praying for their families. Thank you so much for all you have done and do every day! ♥
Since it’s finally warm enough to wear shorts and tank tops around here, Scott and I don’t plan on letting that go to waste. We still aren’t sure of our plans for the day, but I do know they will involve doing something outside, preferably in a bathing suit.
15 Awesome America Songs
Before we get goin’, I wanted to share a fun patriotic playlist I put together for a parade yesterday. I was privileged enough to ride shotgun next to the crazy horse HOOPER again, and had the task of creating an upbeat red, white and blue themed playlist for him to dance to while we strolled through the streets in his truck.
I added about five songs to the list to share with you guys, and I have a feeling you can point out at least two of those additions. (Kid Rock, reppin’ the D… woot!)
Whatever you’re doing today, I hope this can help you add in a little patriotic pride!
I have a full weekend recap coming at you later, so I’m going to leave you with something I inherited from the parade and took two seconds to put up on our house.
Have a very safe, marvelous and Happy Memorial Day!
