November Playlist

Working from home, the best motivation for me is a good playlist. Warning: this playlist doesn’t really have any rhyme or reason besides being great music. Here’s what I’m listening to this month:

November Playlist

Next to You by Tyler Hilton

Fellow OTH fans, Chris Keller’s got some skills. “What age am I turning to finally be knowing I know nothing to be true?”

Love Will Be Enough for Us by Dave Barnes

I love love love this song. It makes me miss the KY/TN area and want to run away. And also have kids, so I should probably stop listening. “You and me, baby, and the daffodils/Kids growing up in the rolling hills/And love will be enough for us”

Twenty-somethings by Judah & the Lion

Aw, millennial angst. Gotta love it. “Where in the world are we going with all our dreams?”

Made Alive by Citizens

I love this song. We’ve been singing it during Sunday morning at church, and the lyrics are just so solid. I get fired up every time it plays. “You have bought me back with the riches of your amazing grace and relentless love”

Taylor Swift’s Cover of Riptide by Vance Joy

I didn’t include all of 1989 on this list, which I have listening the heck out of, but I also love this cover of Riptide maybe even more than I love the original. Such an odd song, but I just keep listening.

Twenty-Three Places 10 Year Anniversary Commentary with Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Ed Cash

I don’t know why I started listening to this commentary, but it is hilarious and super cool insight into the song writing and producing process, which is always really interesting to me. I spent a whole afternoon working and listening to the commentary in the background, and laughed out loud more than once.

What songs can you not get enough of this month?

November Goals

November!

I can’t believe it’s here. 2013 has been a big year, from marriage to internship to graduation.

I’m linking up with The Tiny Twig to think over what I want to accomplish this month.

1. Have an amazing Thanksgiving. Chris’s job change makes it a little difficult to plan, since we have no idea what his schedule will be. We are hoping for at least a few days off so I can see my family. However, even if we can’t, I’m hoping my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner will go well, and at least be a fun and relaxing time.

2. Do the dishes every day. Because, goodness, I just feel better when they’re done.

3. Read a book. A good one.

4.  Find/make cheap Christmas decorations. So thankful for my Horton and Brown decorations!

5.  Plan a fun and unique date night with Chris. Because what’s better than throwing leaves in comfy clothes with my cute husband?

6.  Keep a gratitude journal. Because sometimes I get too caught up in the bad to look at the good. And because Ann Voskamp says so.

 

What are your goals for the month? I’d love to hear them!
