back with the fire of a thousand suns

15 Oct

Well… it’s been almost a year since my last blog post. Life has been crazy! In the time that I’ve been away (from the blog, not away from life), I got married, traveled to the Bahamas, traveled to Europe (Scotland, Paris & Amsterdam), said goodbye to our sweet boxer boy, Bubba, moved, and in the midst of it all…sprouted a few new gray hairs. 2013 has been a ROLLER COASTER and I promise to update with wedding & Europe ish soon. 

It’s Tuesday.. so fitting that I return to the blog just in time for a round of Tuesday tags. Here’s what’s been in my earbuds this week:

“Hurricane” – MS MR

“The Wire” – HAIM

“Stompa” – Serena Ryder

“The Mother We Share” – CHVRCHES

“Scare Me” – New Beat Fund

“Afraid” – The Neighbourhood

“The Ceiling” – The Wild Feathers

“All Things at Once” – Tired Pony

“Lightning Bolt” – Jake Bugg

“Land of Gathering” – The Ceremonies

Halloween is almost heeeeere!!! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! I love Halloween. Even though I’m a certifiable adult(ish), I love dressing up and throwing a few back during the first holiday of the season. Charlie, not so much. Actually, not at all. It has been HELL trying to convince him to even dress up! He’s a little Scrooge when it comes to Halloween. After throwing all of my wonderful couples costumes ideas out the window (Mario & Peach, Ringmaster & Lion –couldn’t do this one because my costume would include a whip which somehow shows ownership? who knows, but I love him–, Popeye & Olive Oyl), he finally agreed to dress up as Thing 1. That’s right. He will be wearing a red tshirt and a blue wig. And that’s it. Whomp Whomp Whomppppp! Luckily he makes up for his lack of Halloween fervor with like, a bunch of other awesome attributes. Pictures of our (amazing) costumes will be included in a later post, so keep your eyes peeled!

Now, on to this weeks Tuesday Tags:

If I Wanted Someone” -Dawes (SO good.. seriously)

Better Weather” -Good Old War

I’m always looking for ways to tell people about good music that I’ve been listening to. After shamelessly plugging some of my faves on Facebook for the past couple of months, I’ve decided that maybe the blog would be a better outlet!

“Gimme Twice” –The Royal Concept

“Lullaby” –Ben Wells & the Middle Names

“The Pit” –Silversun Pickups

“Joker & the Thief” –Wolfmother

“All of Me” –Tanlines

“I Ain’t the Same” –Alabama Shakes

“What Makes a Good Man?” –Heavy

“My Door Bell” –The White Stripes (old, but still good!)
