Girl power time! Most Girls! Rock the song, people!

I heard this song today on a walk up one of my town's many forever hills, the kind of hill that kills cars because it's so steep and goes on for blocks and blocks, but hey, why not walk up the beast? Before most of my summers begin I formulate lofty goals. Oh boy. And you better believe that somewhere fitness hopes are smack in the middle of the mix. We're two weeks in and my lofty goals are drifting in every direction. Did you know July was ice cream month? Or something to do with ice cream. See the battles I'm facing? Anyways, girls out there thinking too much or feeling alone or maybe working your ass off but feeling a teeny tiny lack of the parade that should celebrate your new found body-awesomeness, take a listen to this cool song.

Soundtrack love!

Holy hoppleheads! The school year! It's almost over and I need music. A lot of it. I'm a soundtrack girl so here are a few that I bounce to as I race all over the place getting stuff done.

Pitch Perfect rocks the the planet and the music is so much fun!

The Sing soundtrack is straight up feel good music.

And lastly, sometimes it's not about dancing down the sidewalk. Your soul needs a softer touch. I love the music from Pride and Prejudice. Just love it.

Here's some happiness for you

It's spring. The school year is nearly done. Adults are stressed. Kids are wild. How about some Sesame Street?

Time for a music blast! How about Andy Grammer?

You know when you get in that mood where the only thing that can speak to you, that can reach into the mess inside your head and heart (it can be a fantastic mess, doesn't have to be a dramatic hot mess deal), is a song. I haven't found the song. I even dug into my old CD's that I don't tap too often because they are all memory stamped. Each one takes me to a time I played the shit out of it and lived it like an anthem. So in the meantime, while I search, I'll tap those around me for their songs. Today we're hitting Andy Grammer and "Good To Be Alive" because my youngest loves this song (partly because of the word shit at the beginning and he's only allowed to say swear words if he's quoting something -- very sneaky and pretty adorable). Do you ever feel like the only thing that will get you is a song?

Pinterest Quote Time!

"Let's get lost in a world made of books, coffee and rainy days." The forecast promises a return to rain this week, so this quote is more of a promise.

"Never hope for it more than you work for it." I'm not a big fan of quotes that begin with Never and Don't, but this one rocks. Of course, when I get cranky-bossy I often start with Don't and Never. Total hypocrisy.

"Friends and good manners will take you where money won't go" (Margaret Walker) My translation of this has nothing to do with table manners since I eat like a hungry teenage boy, but I'm big on saying thank you and meaning it especially to kids.

Last one...
"Grow through what you go through."

Okay, this really is the last one...
"head up, gorgeous"
