What’s on your Playlist?

(Thanks to Apple for the picture)



This week I have been trying to get back into my “workout routine”.

Ever since we moved, it has been out of wack.  Like wiggidy wiggidy wack!  (Sorry, I had to)

I happen to be lucky enough to have a treadmill in my house.  I am also lucky enough that it hasn’t kicked the bucket on me since it is over 10 years old.

Oh no, “Ole Betsy” hasn’t kicked the bucket yet, but the day she does will be a bad day.  We have had a love/hate relationship over the years, but for the most part, it has been more of a loving one.


This is “Ole Betsy!”

AND, just in case you were wondering, she is a :

She can even double as a clothes rack from time to time, so I would definitely recommend the brand.



Getting back into the groove of things made me start to take a look at my Playlist for my workout.  Don’t know if this is the fact that I’m a girl, but I have songs on there that wouldn’t strike someone as the “workout” type of Playlist.  The wierd thing is that I actually can workout to these.  Now, some of them are definitely high packed energy songs.  BUT most are not!

I thought I would share them with you, so here they go.  It is such a mix of genres, it is ridiculous!

I’ll even attach the youtube versions, so you dont get bored.  So sit back, hang out a while and listen to some music. (P.S.  :  If some have odd videos, do not hold me accountable)

1).  Set Fire to the Third Bar –  Snow Patrol featuring Martha Wainwright

2). Paperweight – Schuyler Fisk and Josh Radin (*You have “Dear John” to thank for these)

3).We are Young – Fun  featuring  Janelle Monáe

4). Yellow – Coldplay

5).  Every Teardrop is a Waterfall – Coldplay

6). Paradise – Coldplay

7). Springsteen – Eric Church  (Fast forward through the girl talking if you want.)

8). Barefoot Blue Jean Night – Jake Owen

9). Viva La Vida – Coldplay



10). Down (featuring Little Wayne) – Jay Sean

11). Free – Zac Brown Band

12). Pictures of You –  The Cure

13). Enchanted –  Taylor Swift

14). The Man Who Can’t be Moved – The Script

15). Chasing Pavements – Adele

16). The Way I am – Ingrid Michaelson

So tell me!  What’s on your Playlist?

I scream! You scream! We all scream for COFFEE!!!

Decorating has been on my mind as of lately.

Well, ok.  It’s ALWAYS on my mind.  Wish it weren’t, but it is.


Thanks to lovely Pinterest, I just did a cool coffee station in my dining room.  One of my good friends “pinned” it to one of her boards and I just had to do it in my own house.

Having a coffee station allows you to free up much needed counter space.  I have a Bunn coffee maker, so it sticks really far out and it really only worked in one place on my counters.

This is my version.  (I know the shelf is off center, so I fixed it.  Just wasn’t smart enough to post another pic reflecting that).

I snagged this cabinet at Homegoods.  I had seen it one day and told myself that if I went back a few days later and it was there, I would get it.  Anybody who has been to a Homegoods knows that you can go there, fall in love with something, and then go back an hour later and it’s GONE!  They have such great deals on things, that they fly out of the store.  Especially furniture pieces.

I love it because not only can I put my coffee there, but now I have a spot for my wine.

This bottle looks lonely right now, but soon she will have lots of friends to play with.  : ) › Continue reading
