Monday, Monday

dog/baby concert
baby/dog concert. don't mind Hank's Suns pj pants ;)

I think this week is going to be a good one. For one, in exactly one week I'll be at the Thao and Mirah show (see the first song below) with some of my girlfriends, so I'm definitely looking forward to that, and two, the overall feel of today is just awesome. Mondays are always a great day for me. When I used to teach I'd enjoy spending Sunday nights getting organized- cooking food for the week, packing lunches, getting my plans ready- and then when Monday rolled around I loved that feeling of being so put-together and ready to face the next week.  Now things are a bit different, but Sundays and Mondays still kind of feel the same.

In the spirit of this Monday, here's a fun playlist of 10 songs to ease you into your week! Enjoy.

  3. I feel the same way about Mondays! I love getting organized and having all the bags packed and the chores done. Mondays are so full of possibility. LOVE this playlist, I am such a huge Gaslight Anthem fan:)

  5. What a great surprise! I love your playlists so much!
    Your Sunday evening rituals sound dreamy - I am practically counting down the days until I become a teacher!
    Right now I'm a nanny, so while all my teacher friends are enjoying their cushy Summer schedules my work hours have tripled. [Something about taking care of another family's child and household all day really makes me long to be in my own home doing the same somedays!]
    ~2 years to go!
    Have fun at the Thao/Mirah show! I so hope to see them soon + can't wait to hear about it!

  22. I love that you wrote that you love Mondays. I feel like most people just accept the "EW Mondays!" feeling because it's...well, acceptable to feel that way. But the power of positive thinking (and planning) goes a long way!
