auditory april

i've always tried to pull one over on loved ones for april fool's day, but always fall short. i think it's a silly day, especially given that i can tend toward the gullible. what isn't a joke is this playlist. *snort* - see what i did there?!

here's my monthly list of songs found while catching up on dvr'd  suits, parenthood and person of interest, on shopping excursions, and via noisetrade emails. have you checked out that site? it's pretty spectacular. and, i added an old fave from big head todd because they just played and i missed them. their swing toward blues has not been my favorite digression. bring back the old vibe...please! the arctic monkeys song was slated for the march playlist, but i couldn't decide if i liked it enough, but if it ain't dang catchy! and, no mocking the brave song - i'm really diggin' the message, so skip it if you need to! wink

now then - truly, what are you listening to? i reeeeeaallllly wanna know. i don't just type that every month. c'mon - help a sister out! smooches and hugs and all that jazz.

sorry so late with the march playlist - I took a much needed tropical vaycay. and, let me tell you - vitamin d does a body good! so refreshed!

and, here are the tunes for march - all procured from the various tv shows i'm trying to catch up on. plus a few oldies (but super goodies) thrown in for good measure. the yoga teach threw jeff buckley on her playlist recently, and man, was it hard to stay in downward dog, when all i wanted was a microphone. oh, the angst of 1994.

ok - as always - what are you listening to?? anything i have to hear? how are you feeling about daylight savings? i went outside last night at 6 and did a happy dance that it was still light out! wahoo! (which, incidentally, is a fish i tasted for the first time on my trip)

in the key of f...ebruary

by popular demand, my three readers - the playlist lives on!

you know how January is supposed to be a month of introspection, goals, and getting life back in order after the holidays? well, that sorta happened in the workshop, but sorta also didn't. things be crazy up in here, and that is the most awesome thing ever. truly. truly. truly.

my sissies and i started this thing in september. we send a picture every day of something new - each month is a new theme. january's theme was us showing our attempt at a goal we set for the year (eat more veggies, be more positive, exercise, etc.) and, man, was it so powerful to see those goals being achieved! i had a major goal deadline of january 31st, and i couldn't be happier that i achieved it! i'll tell ya about it soon. promise.

now - to the music. the farmer gives us mixtapes cds in our stockings most years, and he has quite the ear for music, so a few of those new-to-me tunes are on here. others i found on blogs, TV shows, various dressing rooms. you know what's next - tell me what you're grooving to - anything i have to listen to?

almost famous??

during the mad rush of the holidays, when my little elf was here helping in the workshop, she scanned through some of the latest designs to get some ideas for her own cards. as she was perusing, she holds up a shower invitation and asks - do you know these people? since the party was in texas, and she is from texas, i didn't think anything of it, and said - no, do you?

this flustered her a bit, and she asked again - no, really, do you know these people? to which I replied - no, I don't, do you? she looked at me, rolled her eyes and SCREAMED - THIS IS THE BACHELOR!! and, i admit, when i got the picture for the back, i thought - that is a mighty fine couple, and wowza - great engagement pictures!

i stopped watching that show like 10 years ago, when the firestone dude was on it, so i don't know anything about it these days. so, no, no - i do not know these people. but, i guess i should have!

word on the street is they're goin' to the chapel tomorrow (my invite must've gotten lost in the mail), so how 'bout we check out the shower invite?

the hostess found my design on pinterest, and we changed the colors up a bit, and added a few more pun-ny travel info tidbits. i guess this makes me almost famous, huh?? nahhhhhh
