(Almost) Late to the (Swap) Party

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!



  1. I'm so glad you loved your CD! If you need more Straight No Chaser music, let me know ;) They're pretty amazing - even more so live, so make sure you do a little YouTube search!

    When things settle down for both of us, we should find a time to get together! You were a wonderful swap partner, so thank YOU :)

  2. Wow! What a busy holiday season. I'm glad you got some new tunes to keep you entertained in your car! What a good mix! I LOVE Straight No Chaser and am so excited that people discovered them through this swap. I saw them in concert last week (and blogged about it today). They are awesome.

    Stopping by from the linkup! :)
    Easily Entertained

  3. Ah! Love this mix. Sara sure does rock. Thanks for joining in on the swap!!!
