Ah, Monday. I am beyond exhausted. Almost forgot to post in order to link up for the great swap I just did.
First, let me preface with the "yeah, yeah, I know I haven't been writing lately" apology. For me, the holidays always mean a lot of time in the car listening to Christmas music while driving, traveling with the cats, and visiting with family. This year the holidays also mean a major cross-country move (2 weeks ago), my first holiday with my boyfriend's family (Thanksgiving), a new apartment (just moved in last Thursday), and a brand new job (first day was today).
I always start listening to Christmas music right after Thanksgiving and this year had the pleasure of adding a ton of new songs to my iPod thanks to a "Jingle Bell Rock" holiday mix "tape" swap I decided to participate in. I kind of wasn't planning on moving right at this time as well so I had to cram in the creation of a playlist over my last weekend in Lexington... but imagine my surprise when my partner turned out to be a fellow Wisconsin-ite! It was just another sign that it was the perfect time for me to be moving back!
The mix Sara sent me is amazing - a fabulous mixture of new and old favorites.
Excellent job, Sara! How have I missed the amazing-ness that is Straight No Chaser?!
What a fun swap! I can't wait until I get settled in a little more and Sara and I have a chance to meet up in person. Make sure to check out her blog over at You.And.Me.Are.We and show her some love.
P.S. Check back tomorrow for when I explain how much I hate "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and why, as well as why one of these never-before-heard songs made me happy because it was soooo much better!
