Up to Play

in music

Good morning. πŸ™‚ I was up early so I could get some work done before other errands.  IÒ€ℒm seeing my Girls on the Run in their school play at 8 AM and then I have a meeting.  I had to laugh when I asked the girls what roles they each held Γ’β‚¬β€œ one is the old woman, another is a water dragon, one is a phoenix, and one is a dog.  I have no idea what this play is going to be about!




A mix of shredded wheat and OÒ€ℒs with almonds and rice milk.


And I snagged the last piece of fruit in the house.  ThereÒ€ℒs one advantage to getting up early!


By popular request, hereÒ€ℒs my current running playlist!  ThereÒ€ℒs a lot of familiar songs from my other playlists on this one, but also some good new ones.  I am OBSESSED with Florence + the Machine but only have two of her songs on my iPod so far.  I need to download some more!


This is a great running song:


What are you listening to during workouts right now?


Pssst Γ’β‚¬β€œ Check out my latest Own Your Beauty post on why laughing at lifeÒ€ℒs mishaps is beautiful.



  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine March 11, 2011, 7:15 am

    I took a spin class last week and the instructor played some great 80s stuff…Journey and Peter Gabriel and stuff like that. Made me rediscover that whole section of my iPod!

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:09 pm

      Oh man…. Journey rules. We used to have Journey Fridays at the old place I worked.

  • Jen @ Jen is Green March 11, 2011, 7:16 am

    I LOVE Florence!! I just recently discovered her and her album has been in my car for the past two months. I can’t stop listening to it! I think Cosmic Love is my favorite. SO GOOD! I haven’t tried listening to it running yet, but I may have to start!

  • Sarah March 11, 2011, 7:19 am

    I couldn’t agree more! Dog Days is THE BEST running song and its even better in a hot vinyasa class when your arms are burning and you just can’t chatarunga one more time—it really gets me going again!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey March 11, 2011, 7:21 am

    Good morning! I can’t wait to hear how the play goes. It sounds funny.

    I haven’t been listening to music while I work out lately, but i’m about to jump back on it because there are so many good songs out right now!

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:10 pm

      The play was cute πŸ™‚ It was Korean fairytales!

  • Ashley @ Feeding Ashley March 11, 2011, 7:26 am

    I love getting up early. Especially before the suns up and everything is quiet. I feel like my day is more productive. The problem is I love to stay up late too. Aheh.
    I’ve running to Rihanna’s Rockstar, and Hard.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) March 11, 2011, 7:30 am

    I think it’s great you are going to see their play! I love watching kids do things creative. There is such a sincere energy to it. Have fun!

  • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 11, 2011, 7:36 am

    Loving your playlist! Anything by Rick Ross lately is a hit for me πŸ™‚

    Your playlist looks exactly like 95% of my ipod!

  • Stacey @ The Habit of Healthy March 11, 2011, 7:46 am

    Have fun at the play. It sounds……..interesting!

  • Trisha March 11, 2011, 7:56 am

    I’m obsessed with Ke$ha’s “Blow” and have been listening to it on repeat when I run. I’m totally going to check out the other Florence and the Machine song you have listed because I love “The Dog Days are Over.” Awesome mix!

  • Tina March 11, 2011, 7:59 am

    Our playlists are identical! I am especially loving britney’s & katy perry’s new songs! Happy Friday!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 11, 2011, 8:00 am

    I love Florence + The Machine too! I’m also loving Rihanna’s S&M (as wonderfully inappropriate as it is) and some Pink remixes – Raise Your Glass (Liam Keegan edit) is great!
    Have fun at the play!

  • Mari March 11, 2011, 8:00 am

    Love Florence!

    Gutted that I had to cancel seeing her show in Edinburgh last year, I had a ticket and everything. However I bought Between Two Lungs when I was in the UK last month, loving it!

    Uhm currently I am listening to the beat of my feet when I am running, my MP3 player is playing hide and seek with me and I am loosing big time! Fingers crossed that it will turn up soon… Itching to try out the songs mentioned here.

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:11 pm

      Ahhh so sad. Too bad you didn’t get to go!

  • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans March 11, 2011, 8:03 am

    Britney Spears always makes my playlist..this time around its Til the Wolrd Ends, Hold It Against Me and 3.

  • Kara March 11, 2011, 8:04 am

    Now I want to see that play too!

    I’m actually running a marathon on Sunday that bans music, so I’ve been trying to train without (which blows). I know it’s supposed to be more zen to just run with the sounds of nature and all, but I need some Eminem to run!

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:11 pm

      Do you think they are super serious about no earbuds? Most races *have* to say that for insurance purposes.

      • Kara March 11, 2011, 6:19 pm

        They are militant about it. I did a ten mile race held by the same people and they really checked and DQed anyone who was caught wearing them during the race.

        Plus, only 140 are running, so I won’t be able to blend into the crowd and hide ear buds. I’m just going to have to suck it up and hum to myself for 4 some odd hours. πŸ™‚

        • Jenne March 12, 2011, 3:46 pm

          If you have an ipod touch, could you just put it in your bra with the volume up? I’ve done that before when I did a triathlon that banned earphones.

        • Kara March 12, 2011, 3:48 pm

          If I had an iPod touch that didn’t near ear phones, then yes I could use that. It’s just a head phones issue since they aren’t closing the road. Also, the marathon is run by a bunch of running purists who think running with music is bad. They obviously don’t know the joy of running with Lady Gaga πŸ™‚

  • Julie @ Shining From Within March 11, 2011, 8:04 am

    I literally have all the same songs as you! I love Florence and The Machines song Dog Days Are Over. Such an awesome song. I have a lot of J.Lo and Gaga on my I-pod… and 70’s music. Hahaa

  • Lee March 11, 2011, 8:05 am

    I’m really loving Mumford & Sons right now for running music. Especially the song The Cave.

  • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans March 11, 2011, 8:06 am

    Oh man..I didn’t realize what song that Dog Days was. I am addicted tot his song!!

  • jen @ taste life March 11, 2011, 8:07 am

    I love reading other people’s song lists. They mostly make me feel old and behind the times, but still.

  • Baking 'n' Books March 11, 2011, 8:10 am

    Oh gosh – get Rihanna’s and David Guetta’s song “I Just Want To Dance” (or something like that)….that makes me get up and dance in my apartment!!! Even when I feel like crap….so that’s sayin’ something…;)

  • Elizabeth@The Sweet Life March 11, 2011, 8:13 am

    Gotta love kids’ plays where everyone needs a part so the school just adds random characters!

  • Camille March 11, 2011, 8:14 am

    E.T. is one of my current favorite workout songs. I love it!

  • Julie (Food & Other Things) March 11, 2011, 8:16 am

    Great playlist! I love Florence + the Machine…lately I really like listening to Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” when I workout!

  • Megan March 11, 2011, 8:19 am

    Dog Days are Over is my favorite running song ever. I probably listen to it every single time I run.

  • maria @ Chasing the Now March 11, 2011, 8:21 am

    I’m currently really into that Florence and The Machine song, too. Awesome workout track.

  • Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} March 11, 2011, 8:22 am

    Happy Friday to you! Have a great day. πŸ™‚

  • Ally March 11, 2011, 8:30 am

    Last year I may have listened to “Dog Days Are Over” about 29348023 times during my runs. AMAZING. And you got me into that Killers song that played during the Beijing Olympics, too. That one is insane. I don’t know what I’d do with a race that banned iPods!

  • Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews March 11, 2011, 8:30 am

    I’m loving the song “F you” while working out..haha

  • Faith @ lovelyascharged March 11, 2011, 8:32 am

    I’m always so excited when I see Till I Collapse on someone’s running playlist – it’s BALLER!

  • Donna March 11, 2011, 8:33 am

    That florence and the machine song is one of my fav running songs!
    Sounds like an exciting play, have fun πŸ™‚

  • Marina March 11, 2011, 8:42 am

    Sounds like pretty interesting play πŸ™‚ I bet it’s going to be awesome, school plays often are πŸ™‚

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete March 11, 2011, 8:44 am

    You’ve got a lot of songs that I would have picked — anything with a good beat is perfect for running. I love that you have Lose Yourself by Eminem — that song never gets old for me!

  • Charise March 11, 2011, 8:45 am

    I’ve been loving the F+M album for workouts, too! I also like the Mumford + Sons album for more mellow workouts. The 2 new Britney songs are on the list, along with several of the songs on your list and older songs from Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and Black Eyed Peas. Rounded out with a few country songs like It Felt Good on My Lips by Tim McGraw.

  • Alayna @ Thyme Bombe March 11, 2011, 8:58 am

    Crazy, I started my first race ever listening to Dog Days are Over! It is a great running song, really got me in the zone!

  • Kathleen @ KatsHealthCorner March 11, 2011, 9:01 am

    Apples are the perfect addition to every meal! πŸ˜€


  • Jennifer@ knackfornutrition March 11, 2011, 9:06 am

    Our playlists currently look almost identical! Britney + Gaga makes magic happen on runs.

  • Jen @ keepitsimplefoods March 11, 2011, 9:09 am

    I LOVE working out to Florence and the Machine…and Muse. So good!

    I’m not a big cereal person, but that looks quite good!

  • Julie @ Lettuce Choose Healthy March 11, 2011, 9:10 am

    I loveeee that song for running! For the last 2 miles of my run yesterday I played it on repeat!

  • britt will be fit March 11, 2011, 9:12 am

    I need my music when i workout

  • Brittany March 11, 2011, 9:18 am

    I love Florence + the Macine! Can’t believe i’m actually older than Florence πŸ™‚

    Also: Cajun/Zydeco music goodness like Pine Leaf Boys, Cedric Watson & Corey Ledet, Michael Jackson, Keith Frank, ‘NSync, old school Whitney Houston, The Noisettes, Kings of Leon, The Rocket Summer, and other aweome random ness!

  • Lauren March 11, 2011, 9:18 am

    Super Mash Bros! They have a ton of fun mash-up songs that make me wanna dance while running. You can download them for free on their website: http://www.supermashbros.com/music

  • Parita @ myinnershakti March 11, 2011, 9:25 am

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Indian hip hop type stuff lately. It puts a spring in my step!

  • Terrieha March 11, 2011, 9:27 am

    LOVE, Love, love the Own Your Beauty post…so true!!

  • Christy March 11, 2011, 9:27 am

    That song is an even better Spin song. πŸ™‚

  • Marisa E March 11, 2011, 9:29 am

    Some of the songs I’m loving to run to right now are- All of the Lights- Kanye and Rihanna, Born this Way- Lady G, Joker and the Thief- Wolfmother (this song was played in the Hangover when Alan was counting cards in poker and won 80 grand),Hey Baby- Pitbull & T-Pain and many of the ones I see on your own playlist.

  • chelsea March 11, 2011, 9:32 am

    I think its so sweet of you to go to their play! Hope you dont mind if I steal some of your music πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:12 pm

      Steal away!

  • Jennie March 11, 2011, 9:33 am

    I have most of those songs on my running playlist too. I recently added S&M by Rihanna and Price Tag (feat. B.o.B) by Jessie J. Try those, I think you’ll like them. πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:12 pm

      Do you feel dirty when you listen to S&M? LOL i do!

      • Jennie March 11, 2011, 7:09 pm

        Haha…kinda. It’s nice to bring out my inner dirtiness every once in a while. πŸ™‚

  • Emily March 11, 2011, 9:37 am

    I looove running to Dog Days are Over, also loving Cee Lo Green’s Forget You and Carolina Liar’s Show Me What I’m Looking For. A little Michael Jackson never hurt, too πŸ™‚

  • Evan Thomas March 11, 2011, 9:38 am

    I’ve been rediscovering everything Maroon 5. I forgot how much I loved them! Great running music, too. It makes you think you’re in a music video.

  • Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing March 11, 2011, 9:38 am

    Dog Days Are Over = probably my top played song since this summer! It’s just so inspiring and motivating. I love it!

  • Amanda March 11, 2011, 9:43 am

    Love Florence + The Machine! I am a bit embarrassed to admit I hadn’t heard them until one of their songs was on Glee.

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me March 11, 2011, 9:47 am

    I like your mix. I like to work out to hip-hop/rap music. For some reason the beats and all that totally pump me up and get me going.

  • Caitie @ The Caitie Experiment March 11, 2011, 9:49 am

    Never have I ever created a running playlist that DIDN’T have “‘Til I Collapse” and “Lose Yourself” on it… mostly because I’m 99% sure my iPod is psychic and even when I have it set to random, one of those songs ALWAYS comes on either at a tough point in the run or right at the very end when I’m sprinting to make time!

    I’ve been jammin’ to Matchbox 20 lately because 1) I am obsessed with Rob Thomas and once screamed to him that I wanted to have his baby…when I was 16. I documented that stellar life moment on my blog a few weeks ago. 2) I’ve got a 5k on Sunday and some shin splint action, so I needed music that would slow me down for the past week! I think it’s super cute that you’re going to see your girls in their play!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Graduate March 11, 2011, 9:52 am

    I’m obsessed with Kanye West–“Power” is probably my favorite song to run to at the moment! I play it towards the end of my run when I need a pick me up. I’m also OBSESSED with Glee songs and play a lot of those when I’m running as well. πŸ™‚

  • Kristen March 11, 2011, 9:53 am

    I’ve been starting my runs with Dog Days. It gets me going for the rest of the run!

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy March 11, 2011, 10:03 am

    Love the flour story! What a great approach to situations like that. When our dog was a puppy and made “soupy messes” in her crate and had to be carried upstairs, with puppy feet flailing about, getting soupy mess all over the carpet, stairs, walls (while flinging her feet everywhere) oh what a mess. But I couldn’t help but laugh as we cleaned up the big, stinky mess. Laughter is certainly better than getting upset! Can’t change what happened, might as well laugh about it.

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:13 pm

      Ewwww soupy messes are the worst.

  • Clarissa @ SoberandtheCity March 11, 2011, 10:06 am

    Your playlist is very similar to mine!! This week I’ve got Avril Lavigne’s new album on repeat though, so good!

  • Crystal March 11, 2011, 10:15 am

    Right now I’m obsessed with the album All Day by Girl Talk. He is a DJ that makes really catchy mashups that you can download on his website (www.illegal-art.net – sounds sketchy, but believe me, it’s ok!) The first mashup on the album is a blend of War Pigs by Black Sabbath and a Ludacris song. Sounds strange, but it is so awesome. The rest of the album is just as good. It’s the best running soundtrack I have ever heard.

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:13 pm

      I will have to check this out! Thanks!

  • Paula @ Eat: Watch: Run March 11, 2011, 10:17 am

    Your running playlist is about 90% identical to mine. πŸ™‚ If you like ET by Katy Perry…try out Circle the Drain by her too. LOVE that song and it gets me movin’!

  • Christine March 11, 2011, 10:20 am

    I listen to a lot of those songs! I also mix in some rock like Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Alter Bridge, and Guns and Roses.

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef March 11, 2011, 10:20 am

    so i didn’t comment yesterday about the running shirt debate because i didn’t get to read it til today…but i totally don’t buy into that superstition. i’ve been running for like 13 yrs and in junior high, HS, and college cross country & track, it totally was the cool thing to buy the shirt at the event and wear it there. maybe it was a status symbol or something. then you wash it and wear it to school on monday. maybe it’s different in the non-school sports world but that’s what we always did. but i suppose i have my own routine- i wouldn’t wear a new shirt (or new anything) the day of a race…except maybe a local 5k or something short. but a marathon or half? no way, because you don’t know if it’s gonna itch or be a distraction for whatever reason. πŸ™‚ just my 2 cents!

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:14 pm

      Yea! That’s another reason you shouldn’t wear race shirts the day of if it’s a longer race – chafing!

  • Maren March 11, 2011, 10:23 am

    My playlist is so similar!! I LOVE running to Dog Days Are Over!! I always play it when I feel like dying πŸ˜‰ I’ve also got S&M by Rihanna and I Wanna Hold Your Hand by The Beatles!! Happy Friday!

  • Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather March 11, 2011, 10:41 am

    I feel so behind with the times because my ipod is rarely updated. I actually can’t even remember the last time I used it! I guess that’s what happens when I turn pandora on during my workouts at home.

  • Rae March 11, 2011, 10:47 am

    check this out for inspiration:



  • Nicole, RD March 11, 2011, 10:52 am

    Like a G6 is my favorite song for working out right now…love it!

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) March 11, 2011, 10:53 am

    My playlist looks almost identical to yours!!!! Love Florence + the machine too. And new jlo and brit songs.

  • salah@myhealthiestlifestyle March 11, 2011, 10:55 am

    I just bought the entire Florence + the machine cd the other day and the new Adele cd and those are my main picks for the moment!

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine March 11, 2011, 11:27 am

    When I first heard “Dog Days are Over” I instantly made it my powersong!! It’s so uplifting.

    Check out The Noisettes- Don’t Give Up… that song is SO inspirational and upbeat!

  • Ali March 11, 2011, 11:39 am

    Love that song! My friends and I created this video of our friend Ashley’s first marathon to it. It came out AMAZING! Every time I hear that song I am inspired by her and I run happier and faster!

    Here is the link:


  • Kacy March 11, 2011, 11:39 am

    That Flo and the Machine song is definitely on my running playlist. Love it. Can’t wait to hear what the play was about πŸ™‚

  • Katharine March 11, 2011, 11:43 am

    “Dog Days Are Over” is by far my favorite running song. It just makes me so happy and full of energy! Now if only I could find more songs that make me feel that way while running… πŸ˜‰

  • Beth March 11, 2011, 11:47 am

    I am very into Katy Perry right now and like to add songs from So You Think You Can Dance to the mix. The new season starts soon and I can’t wait to see what music they showcase!

  • Maryann (The Balanced Bean) March 11, 2011, 11:57 am

    Our playlists are pretty much identical! You have great taste in music πŸ˜‰

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss March 11, 2011, 12:03 pm

    I’m still jammin to oline radio during my workouts. It was nice at first, but they’re playing the same stuff over and over and over again. I need to download iTunes!!

  • Mandy March 11, 2011, 12:05 pm

    What kind of earplugs do you use? The little iPod buds fall out of my ears all the time!

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:14 pm

      I wear the iPod ones πŸ™ They stay put for me!

  • Heather March 11, 2011, 12:12 pm

    I am loving DJ Tiesto’s Album “Kaleidoscope” for running, amazing!

  • Kira March 11, 2011, 12:33 pm

    Pursuit of Happiness (Kid Cudi Cover) by Lissie. It’s amazing

  • Alex @ Healing Beauty March 11, 2011, 12:34 pm

    I really loved your Own Your Beauty post. Laughing at mistakes or mishaps is something I really need to do in my own life right now. I’m having trouble forgiving myself for mistakes and maybe if I can find the humor and lighter side in my imperfections, I’ll be able to move forward with a lighter heart.

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:15 pm

      Thank you so much Alex!

  • Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free March 11, 2011, 12:40 pm

    Florence and the Machine is seriously the best. I haven’t been able to stop listening for weeks.

  • Lisa March 11, 2011, 12:53 pm

    I love that song! It’s so energizing!

  • Amber K March 11, 2011, 12:59 pm

    Now I have to know what that play is going to be out! It sounds interesting.

    • Amber K March 11, 2011, 1:00 pm


      • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:15 pm

        It was Korean fairytales! Very cute.

        • Amber K March 11, 2011, 6:20 pm

          Aw, fun!

  • Jessica March 11, 2011, 1:07 pm

    No matter what the playlist, I always have “Heart of a Champion” by Nelly and Lincoln University Vocale Ensamble and “Bring Em Out” by T.I. Check them out!

  • emily March 11, 2011, 1:07 pm

    I haven’t worked out in a while because I’m dying (err, have the flu!) but I’m looking forward to running to “The Cave” by Mumford and Sons. I’m also desperately searching for the House slow version of “Get Happy” to put on my ipod; that would rock a run!

  • julia March 11, 2011, 1:07 pm

    girls on the dance floor by Far East Movement and Backseat by New Boyz. and anything David Guetta touches

  • Maggie March 11, 2011, 1:11 pm

    Those are great songs! Here are my current get-up-and-go faves:
    Wavin’ by K’naan (spelling?)
    This Too Shall Pass by OK Go
    Paper Planes by M.I.A.

    So pumpy!

  • Melissa March 11, 2011, 1:13 pm

    I’m currently addicted to Dog Days are Over and F*** You by Cee Lo Green. I listen to both in the car to pump myself up for my runs. I could listen to both songs all day. Thanks for sharing your play list. I added a few songs to my workout play list.

  • zoe (and the beatles) March 11, 2011, 1:15 pm

    i loooove running to cosmic love and dog days are over!!! i caved and bought the CD a few week back so i also threw hurricane drunk, drumming song, and you’ve got the love onto one of my running playlists. so good!

  • Victoria March 11, 2011, 1:30 pm

    with slightly fewer alien-specific references, I kind of think Katy Perry’s ET could have been secretly written for twilight. πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:16 pm

      me too πŸ™‚

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 11, 2011, 1:59 pm

    I love T-Pain, Britney, Lady Gaga, and Ke&ha for my running/workout playlists!

  • Steph March 11, 2011, 2:03 pm

    Have fun at the play! That’s so cool and I’m sure it means so much to the girls that you came to see it.

  • Jen March 11, 2011, 2:16 pm

    Caitlin – do you have a Post Office box address? I’d love to send you a CD of fun running tunes, but I also imagine it’s way creepy to give a regular address to strangers on the internet.

    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:17 pm

      Email you!

  • Lizz (leadingthegoodlife) March 11, 2011, 2:19 pm

    Have you seen this YouTube video of the crabby baby in a carseat dancing to Dog Days Are Over?? It is hilarious!!


    • Caitlin March 11, 2011, 6:19 pm

      Ohmigod, cutest baby EVER.

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing March 11, 2011, 3:35 pm

    I am loving the new Katy Perry and Kanye song right now. My iPod is broken but once it’s fixed I’ll def be adding it to my workout playlist!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 11, 2011, 6:01 pm

    I haven’t updated my ipod since almost a year ago! Needless to say, I’ve been getting super bored with my workout music. πŸ˜› Maybe I’ll actually load some new songs on this weekend haha.

  • JenRD March 11, 2011, 6:16 pm

    Very well-written Own Your Beauty post! I also have to learn to laugh at myself, and upsetting situations, more often!

    My current playlist is almost identical to yours! Love love love up beat music! You should add Yup Dats Me and Winner by Jaime Fox! The songs give me some much motivation bc it makes feel like everyone wants to beat me! Haha So I gotta keep my pace up! Hope u feel better, good luck with your half marathons coming up! I have 3 fuels coming up and I’m trying to fight back among injuries as well!

    I love dog days are over. It’s also a great song to cycle(spin) to.

    Great Playlist! some of my recent additions to my runing playlist have been Pink (F**kin’perfect and Raise Your Glass), Wonderul by Gary Go, Lisztomania by Phoenix, and Lay me Down by The Dirty Heads.

    Very sweet to go to the girls’ play. My daughter couldn’t wait to see her coach this week when they started up again, I know your girls feel the same way about you.

    I just recommended that song to a few people for their running play list – it is superb!

    I always do sprints to “The Dog Days are Over!” I also enjoy doing hills to Dev’s “Bass Down Low” The chorus is “i like my beats fast and my bass down low” but I like to sing to myself “i like my runs fast and my squats down low” extra points if I smile while I run!

    Dog days & ET are fab running songs! My two faves!

    Hokay, I looove that “I like it” song with pitbull in it. He seriously knows how to make a tune catchy. Thanks for sharing that artist! I’m currently looking for some new jams for my ipod… gotta keep it fresh! Can’t wait to read what you have to say about the play. Water Dragon? Sounds intriguing!

    May I ask you where you get your music? I used to use limewire, but it’s been shutdown, and I would love to download free music again for my own personal enjoyment, but just haven’t found the right outlet.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 3:57 pm

      I pay for music πŸ™‚ And you should, too!

  • linda@adventuresinexpatland.com March 13, 2011, 2:32 pm

    Loved, loved, LOVED your article at Own Your Beauty! (Would’ve commented there but was running out the door.) You wrote such a lovely piece, and it WAS funny! I could imagine your kitchen floor, Maggie, all of it. Glad you chose to laugh. Better yet, glad you chose to write about it. Thank you!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 3:57 pm

      Thank you so much πŸ™‚

    Cait you are so inspirational. Your blogging has really helped me get through the worst times in my life. You have amazing blogger friends with great blogs to read about as well. After being an avid reader for about a year, I took your advice on starting losing weight slow and changing out slowly but surely what I eat. (I’ve also learned the meaning of, BUDGETING! haha__) I’ve lost 10 lbs so far this month. I am so use to the instant victory, but I can say I truly am happy doing it the right way and making a life style change not a, OMG i need to diet change. Now I just have to make the time before/after work to start working out. I am on my feet all day at work and do a lot of lifting of boxes and I’m always moving, but what would you suggest as the best way to slowly start working out. (I would walk outside my apartments, but I get out of work and its dark and unsafe by the time I get home. Rough neighborhood..!)

    You have GOT to listen to this song. It’s a remix of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” – which is insanely awesome. This gets me totally pumped! I’ve been listening borderline non-stop since Friday when I discovered it. It’s almost annoying except it’s not. It’s killer! http://hypem.com/#!/item/18m4q
    — Love that Florence is on your playlist – she rocks!

    • Caitlin March 15, 2011, 10:34 am

      Oh thanks for this!
