Oh, hello there. I’m not sure if you remember me since I haven’t bothered to post anything in almost two weeks. I know I don’t have a ton of regular readers, but when my mom (yes, I finally gave my mom the link to my blog!) told me she’d been looking forward to my weekly recipe and I had to tell her I didn’t have time to write anything this last week, I realized that someone out there actually does notice if I don’t update … So I promised myself I’d make an effort to post several times this week. (We’ll see how well this works out.)
The main focus of this post is going to be my September playlist (we are nearing the end of the month, after all!), but first I wanted to share a few pictures from this weekend.
For the past four years, Eric and I have been going to visit an alpaca farm in Nebraska during their “open house” weekend in September. (Well, every year but last year … It kind of got lost between my cousin’s wedding and our own.) This is not a sponsored post, but if you’re in the area and want to check it out in the future, their website can be found at Alpacas of the Heartland. It was really crowded this year, but we still managed to get a few pictures (as you can see) and spend some time petting and feeding them. The dark brown ones were my favorites, while Eric (obviously) cozied up to one of the white alpacas. We kept calling the one in those pictures his “friend” because it seemed to like (or at least tolerate) him pretty well.
We had a really great time even though it got a little hot. I’m hoping that since we haven’t had true “fall” weather yet (well, not consistently anyway), this winter won’t be too terrible. (Hey, a girl can dream!) I actually love cold weather, but I absolutely hate driving in the snow. The less snow we have this winter, the better (at least in my opinion). But anyway … I don’t think anyone really cares to read my thoughts on the weather, so I’ll move on to my main focus today: my September playlist.
As you might remember, this month I participated in a monthly personal challenge link-up. I’ll be posting my (less than stellar) results this Thursday, so if anyone reading this is interested in how I did, you can check back then. Since this challenge focused on fitness, I decided to base this month’s playlist around that theme as well. The songs I’ll be sharing with you today are some of my favorites to work out to. Although I’m usually stuck with whatever is playing in one of my classes, these are some of the songs I like to hear if I’m walking or running on the treadmill. (Just a note: I only included songs that haven’t been included on my other Divulge and Indulge playlists. Some of the songs I’ve already shared are among my favorite workout songs, but I didn’t want to be repetitive.)
Hopefully you’ll enjoy these songs enough to add at least a couple to your own workout playlist!
