Hello, hello! I feel like I have been raving about holiday music this year.
An upbeat holiday tune never fails to heighten my mood, even on a dreaded Monday morning. If you haven’t been listening to holiday stations and songs throughout the month of December, what are you waiting for? They’re pretty enjoyable, y’all.
While I do appreciate the slower classics, I recently put together a fun workout-worthy playlist you can listen to at home, in the car, and even play during workouts and group exercise classes! Below you will find 21 awesome holiday jams you could also put on at your next holiday party.
Scroll down to give it a listen online!
(You can always access my public playlists on Spotify!)
I would bet that listening to even one of those songs made you smile and/or gave you a reason to break out your “jazz hands”. If this type of music doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, I don’t know what will. Maybe a go see a show? I’m excited for Cirque Dreams tonight with Scott and friends.
Sorry to make it short, but I need to get going. See you in the morning!
Question of the Afternoon
• What is your all-time favorite holiday song?
I have too many. I love Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (<- fun video that brings be right back to my childhood), mainly because it reminds me of growing up watching Home Alone! I’ve also been loving Holiday a cappella music over the past few years. O Holy Night gets me every time!

Hello!! I hope you all are having a great start to the week.
I apologize for not being able to check in as much as I planned!
I have come to a realization over the past couple of days, and it’s that it takes a very specific breed to be married to somebody who works for the NBA or professional sports. Well, as least my somebody anyways.
Between his anything but normal working hours and itch to do anything and everything he gets the chance to, he seriously doesn’t stop.
I’ve done my best to keep up with him, but I’m just not wired to go-go-go all the time. A lot of the times. Just not all the times.
Yesterday was Scott’s birthday, and I had a wonderful time spending the day with him and his mother. We spent the majority of our time touring the different areas of Detroit and went to a really cool and historic haunted restaurant last night that I am excited to share with you!
I have had an absolute blast over the past handful of days, but I just feel like I haven’t been able to work and get things done on my end. The last time I was really home for an extended period of time was Friday and that was to clean and then fall asleep to scary movies while eating all the Halloween candy.
I’m pretty sure we have gone to bed at the wee hours in the morning the last four or five nights in a row. This girl isn’t getting any younger, ya’ll. I can barely keep up with my 41-year-old husband (who somehow has never really required sleep to function), so now you might understand why it’s taken a hot minute to decide to add on to this little family of ours.
I am the type of person that craves down time at home. I’m not talking about time to “do nothing”, rather time to sip coffee at the computer and have chance to… I dunno… fold laundry and stuff. Is that weird?
Anyways, this week doesn’t look like it’s slowing down. We are running Scott’s mom to the airport, then I’m sneaking back home to get on the computer again before the Usher concert tonight followed by three more event outings later this week. I’m not complaining… I love me some Ur-sher, but I just… apologize in advance for being a little all over the place with my posting schedule this week.
Speaking of music I’m loving lately (and to cut off my excessive rambling), I thought it would be good to share the next batch of songs I have been rotating on my running and workout playlist.
Here is what has been powering me through the long training runs!
More Fall Workout Music
Two things to note… good for Jesse McCartney for sneaking his way into one of my playlists (love that song!), and I had no idea the “Jealous” from Nick Jonas was actually one of the Jonas Brothers.
Get it, guys from my boy band past!
You can always find and listen to my workout music (and all my favorite generes for that matter) on my Spotify profile.
If you’d like to begin listening where this playlist begins, simply scroll down to the first familiar song you see!
Well I better get going. We only have a little bit of time left with Scott’s mom before she heads back home. I’ll be back later this afternoon with some highlights over the last couple of days.
Have a great Tuesday!
