Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya! Tomorrow! You’re only a day away!
Tomorrow I’m going on a nice journey back to MD for awhile. Hopefully being around family and friends will inspire more blog posts, since I have been severely lacking in topics to write about.
Of course I probably overpacked… but I think two suitcases (one clothes and one shoes) isn’t so bad. I’m itching to get back to HoCo:) I’m going to see THREE spring musicals while I’m home and I’m so excited to bring that part of music back into my life. Of course this trip brings a plethora of sorority get-togethers. I’ll hopefully have lots of pictures and I’ll share some of them here.
Wish me luck on my long drive!

Today I want to throwback it to 2011 with this fun bonfire pic. My parents went away that weekend for their anniversary so I had a few of my sisters over for a night and we built a bonfire in my backyard. We had our trusty fireman with us (my friend’s boyfriend) so we figured nothing could go wrong. We sat around on blankets drinking, listening to music, and just enjoying the cold November night with each other. It was one of those nights you can’t forget but could never repeat. Sure you could have other bonfires, but that night with those specific people could never be duplicated. The magic of that night was amazing and full of memories. Especially the part where a raccoon came out of the woods in my backyard and scared us all to death 🙂

Today’s New Tune Tuesday is a remix from Caked Up that I found on SoundCloud. If you don’t know what SoundCloud is then go look it up right now, it will change your life. I have a thing for good remixes and mashups and I have found SO MANY great songs from SoundCloud. Add to the fact that making an account is free, you can download the app and listen to all the same music on your phone for free, and you can make playlists to organize the songs you like the most. It’s just fantastic! (No, nobody is paying me to say all this haha.)
Anyway, back to the song. My husband introduced this one to me and I just can’t stop listening. The beat is incredible. This of course lead me to investigate Caked Up on SoundCloud and I was pleasantly surprised to find more remixes that I love. I even liked the one with Wrecking Ball which surprised me the most considering I can’t stand the original song. I’m so excited I can listen to this right on my phone from the app and it will definitely be a song I blast LOUDLY with the windows down during my road trip to MD next month as well as playing this at pre-gaming evenings with my friends back up at school 😉 !

This song is a classic in my iTunes library. Without a doubt this song is played at every party I go to (and that’s not just because 9 times out of 10 I’m the one controlling the music). It is a favorite among ALL my friends (yes including my preschool friends; I once spent an entire summer playing this during preschool summer camp and learned how to “shuffle” from a then 6 year old). My best friend’s boyfriend created a dance to this song and sure enough, at my wedding, this was the first song played (after our first dance) and all my college friends gathered around and performed the dance together in front of all my family members and other friends. It was quite hilarious as nobody else knew what was going on, but we didn’t let that stop us.
As the lyrics say… We just wanna see you shake that 🙂

This song brings back memories to Summer 2012, with one of my best friends in her backyard swimming in her pool, making s’mores by her campfire, driving around in the car, sneaking trips to Target, and staying out very late geocaching and playing on playgrounds all around Howard County. I even remember when she came to Pennsylvania with me for my cousin’s birthday party that summer and we went to the playground in my grandmother’s neighborhood and fooled around like two little kids.
I am so thankful to have this girl in my life. My family has been friends with her family since she was like 6 months old. You’d never be able to tell she is 5 years younger than me, and some people at our church actually think her last name is the same as my parents’ last name. She is my sister even if we aren’t actually related. This song reminds me of all the memories we have shared, good and bad, and reminds me that sometimes family doesn’t mean you share the same blood.

This was the song on every party playlist I made for months after this song came out. It is definitely one of my favorite, it has a really catchy tune and a nice bass. It’s cheesy, yes, but still enjoyable 🙂

This song reminds me of my best friend!! I can’t even count how many times we have had dance parties to this song… in my car, in her car, while I DJ her shower, on the counters, in the living room, while taking shots… you get the point. I could name lots of other songs that she and I share but this one is our absolute favorite. I don’t know what I would do without this girl!
