‘Oh oh i want some more’! This song gets me up, out of bed and running out the door every morning with a smile on my face… I LOVE IT! As soon as it pops on my ipod alarm i rocket out of my sheets (90% of the time), quickly make the mess of pillows that is my bed and knock out some push-ups before the song is over. The song, btw, is Animal by Neon Trees. If you are looking for some pump up music, look no further than the following list of my ultimate sweat breakin’, heart pumpin’ new + older tunes:
- Hanson – Thinkin’ ‘Bout Somethin’
- Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are
- Florence And The Machine – (Her entire album!)
- Queen – Fat Bottomed Girls (classic)
- Death Cab For Cutie – We Looked Like Giants
- Sparta – Air
- Jimmy Eat World – Pain
Other than waking up to those lyrics this morning, i also had a special delivery that left me wanting more as well… ALOT more!
How cute is that? This would be a little hand-drawn note from one of my favorite bloggin’ Mama’s daughters. Or at least i assume that it was Gigi or Lulu who drew this beautiful pic, maybe it was Mama Pea herself? Either way, i was smiling all day long… She sent me a few of her top secret cookies w/ a crazy ingredient that works so well and brings out every taste in the cookie perfectly! Don’t take my word for it though, go out and grab her cookbook when it comes out in the Fall of 2011. I know, long time to wait… Especially once you have tried one of her recipes straight from the source, oh my god. Thanks MP!
Other than consuming my mail, i was pretty productive today in that i began work on a few assignments, was the perfect student in ALL of my classes (of course), had a bangin’ workout before i left this morning (recaps and vids soon), and i was even able to make it to the grocery store before i headed home for the day! All in all, i would call that a decent day. I also had time to sing my heart out on the hour drive to Michigan. I love it when i pull up to stoplights with the top down and people watch me rock out to whatever. I pulled up next to a custom’s officer near the border and him (a 50-something black man) and i were having a little dance off to Single Ladies. His passenger was crying from laughter. I love seeing people enjoy themselves… No matter if you were blessed with amazing vocals or not!
Guess what i found at Plum Market in West Bloomfield, MI?
I made some beet burgers for dinner, had whatever was left of the cookies from this morning (crumbs), read for a few, spent entirely too much money on music, hit up some strength-yoga and called it a night. Deane, Out!
