Playlist Thursday: Grammy Winners

It’s that time of the week again. Time to link up with Pavement Runner. This is an awesome link up I always try to partake in because I get to see songs that I might not have otherwise heard of and I always end up adding at least one song to my running playlist. Make sure you head over to Pavement Runner to check out everyone else who contributed this week.

Playlist thursday teal

Today’s theme is: Your Choice, so considering the recent award show, chose to feature grammy winners.

Artist: Usher

Title: Yeah

Side Note: Usher won best R&B performance.I remember Usher from when he used to wear those silk shirts on his 90’s music videos. I bet he’s glad those went out of style. Plus we all know I love a good mid-song LUDA rap.

Cause I do know if I take that chance just where is it gonna lead,
But what I do know is the way she dance makes shawty alright with me.
The way she getting low!
I’m like yeah, just work that out for me.

Artist: Mumford & Sons

Title: Ghosts That We Knew

Side Note: We know that I love Mumford. I was so happy that they won album of the year. Instead of picking a single you know, I picked one of my favorite songs from the album. I use it as a cool down song usually, as it is a bit slower

You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright

Artist: fun

Title: We Are Young

Side Note: Firstly, the lead singer used to be the lead singer of Straylight Run…please tell me I am not the only one that loved them? I think there songs get a ton of radio play, maybe too much? But I still love their music, and thankfully I don’t listen to the radio that often. Also they won song of the year for this one!

Now I know that I’m not
All that you got
I guess that I,
I just thought,
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise the cup
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

Bachelorette Party Recap

Don’t forget, you have until 11:59 pm EST tonight to enter the Bachelorette Giveaway!

I had started planning my sister-in-laws bachelorette party since March. I am glad I can talk about it now, I actually kept it a secret from her, and if you know me, you know that is a HUGE feat.

Our first part of the night was dinner at Legal Seafoods in Cambridge. We had a prix fixe menu in a semi-private room. Let me say that if you are planning an event in the area, this place was phenomenal to work with. I have always loved legal seafoods, but the team I worked with and that handled our party that night was above and beyond what I expected. I even dropped off boxes of stuff a few hours before our reservation and the staff set everything up for me.


I was also able to customize our menu in her honor!


We didn’t get any shots of the first or second course, but I have plenty of the entrees and dessert!

Before dinner, a cheers to the bride to be!

I also had to be rude and FaceTime with my baby!

Maria & I waiting for our salads

One of the popular entrees, the crab cakes. Check out all the food. It came with a salad, rice and green beans

The other entree that was popular, filet with mashed potato and broccoli

My sister ordered the everything spiced tuna, OH MY GOSH, this was so good!

I ordered the salmon, I knew I’d be drinking and wanted to eat as healthy as possible

The dessert course


the heavenly chocolate cake

After dinner we hopped on the bachelorette bus that we booked through The Bustonian.


Unfortunately I did not get a photo with everyone who attended but I hope you all had an amazing time :)

Again, we had a phenomenal bus driver that went above and beyond for us. I could not be happier with how the night turned out.

In a few weeks I will be standing on the alter with some of these women and we will all watch her marry her best friend. I cannot wait to be a part of the celebration.

Three Things Thursday!

This week has been crazy busy, I literally have made a to do list for every single day. This weeks installment is all about what has been going on in my life.

1. B and I attended a music class every week at our local Gymboree Play & Music and from Memorial Day to Labor Day, as long as we are enrolled we can also take as many Play & Learn classes as we want. This week has been crazy so we were only able to add in one additional class, but I am hoping that one things settle we will be able to do our music class and at least 2 play & learn classes a week.

2. I have been planning my sister-in-laws bachelorette party since MARCH. The big event is this weekend. I cannot wait to share with you all what I have planned. She’s been kept in the dark about everything so I don’t want to risk it now, you will all have to wait until next week to see the details.

3. We just got the invitations for B’s FIRST birthday, and they are gorgeous. But um, how has it been almost a year? Not okay. My baby is growing much to fast.

Any big plans for you this weekend?
