Hot Fun In The Summertime | Music Monday

27 Jun

It’s official – summer is here! I’m going back for this one – I remember listening to this all the time as a kid. And I always LOVED all the soulful voices with their unique characters. The easy breezy intro, gorgeous harmonies, and soulful shout outs all make Hot Fun in the Summertime a perfect mood booster tune!

My personal favorite line:

Boop-Boop-Ba-Boop-Boop when I want to….

What’s yours?

This song makes me smile. Every time. Period. Enjoy this 1977 classic from Bill Withers – Lovely Day.

A lovely day.

Too Darn Hot With Ella Fitzgerald | Music Monday

13 Jun

I have a confession. I’ve always wanted to sing with a big band. I’m no Ella [gross understatement], but how fun would that be? Strutting around in a fancy dress, dancing with a kick ass horn section, and singing with wild abandon.

“I’d like to coo with my baby tonight…”

“It’s tooooooooo, da-aaaaaaaarn, ho-ttttttttt”

Enjoy this tune – it ALWAYS makes me happy!

Slow Down | Wise Words by India Arie

25 May

I shuffled across this tune while walking to work, and BAM! I used to dance to this song, so I certainly listened to it many times. But I’ve never HEARD it like I did yesterday morning. I’ve listened to it over and over and have made Slow Down by India Arie my theme song for the week (day? month? forever?).

“Slow down baby, you’re going too fast…”

“Take some time to clear your space, chaos isn’t good for your health….”

“Sometimes you gotta be still before you get ahead….”

Do yourself a favor – slow down long enough to soak up this amazing poem with her brilliant phrasing, rhythm, and melody.

Does this resonate with you? Anyone want to join me in slowing down?

Lessons Learned and Unexpected Treats at #Fitbloggin

23 May

My Roomies @foodiemcbody and @kclanderson - I'm the luckiest girl in the world!

I decided on Monday and flew out on Wednesday to attend #Fitbloggin – so I didn’t have much time to prepare or fret. I really had no idea what to expect, but I knew I wanted to meet my tweeps in real life. The people were definitely the best part, but the Intuitive Eating panel, Attune Foods panel, and Friday Night Shows were unexpected treats for me. I walked away with  loads of new friends, stronger connections with existing buddies, cool tips and products, great information, and lots of questions (i.e., Who Am I?) – ha! Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this conference – it was uber fun, super inspiring, and filled with #soulmedicine. And yes – the irony of ME going to #fitbloggin is pretty darn funny.   Continue reading
