This morning, both on my way to and from BodyPump (which was, again, awesome and paired with 20 minutes of intervals on the elliptical) I was pretty darn excited to actually hear a good mix of songs on the radio.
If you live up here in this area, then you probably already know that the radio stations around here, umm, kinda stink. They play the same “hit songs” over and over and over again, often forgetting about the “hits” that were popular even, say, 6 months ago.
But for whatever reason, this morning was different, and I had that volume blasted super loud so I could rock out with my
awful best singing voice. Oh you know I did!
Some of the songs that played this morning are actually songs that I connect with various memories. I’ve found that this happens to me quite often lately; a particular song will be “popular” during a special event in my life, which then becomes associated with it. For example…
“Dynamite” by Taio Cruz – Joelle & Kyle’s Wedding…
…and our trip to Las Vegas
“Fire Burning” by Sean Kingston – A family vacation to Myrtle Beach in 2009.
“Umbrella” by Rihanna – A weekend trip to Maine with a few of our friends in September 2008(?)
“Toxic” by Britney Spears & “Headsprung” by LL Cool J – Just being in college.
“Something More” by Sugarland – A girls vacation to Ocean City, MD in 2008.
“Sexy Love” by Ne-Yo – What Jay and I refer to as our “Dark Ages” when we were broken up for a year. This was during the days where MySpace was still popular and you could play songs on your page…remember that? We each constantly used to put songs up that we’d try to use as a way to communicate with each other.
“I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas…“How Low” by Ludacris…“Love Song” by 311… – All remind me of our wedding day.
Today’s breakfast was a pretty darn amazing one.
And would ya take a look at that? Look who actually had hot coffee this morning! Crazy right?
Crazy or not, this breakfast was warm, comforting, and totally awesome…dude.
