Last night, I was feeling a bit bummed out. Not for any particular reason other than these days of being a responsible adult are for the birds.
I counted down the minutes to bedtime so that I could start a real jam session.
Now, I don't know about you, but I have a music list that's kid friendly....and theeeeeeen.... I have a not so kid friendly list pour moi (insert sly grin here).
My list is all for me and I can put whatever song I want on it. It's the list I turn on after dropping the kids off to school to "get my mind right" for work (especially after dealing with them in the back seat arguing with each other all the way through morning traffic!). It's the unedited list that includes a plethora of inappropriate songs (inappropriate for young children). :)
And. I. Love. It.
Once the kids were sent to bed, I double and tripled checked that their little bodies were limp and down for the count. The excitement of time alone (an partial house to myself) had me giddy like a child on candy (the hubby wasn't home either!).

Talk about a quick therapy session that didn't cost a dime! Sometimes it's all you need. A little music to turn your mood around.
I wanted to share with you a few songs that I have on my music list (in no particular order). Some are regular songs, some are headed to raunchy but not quite there, and others are "don't judge me, I just love the beat!" guilty pleasures **insert little monkey face with hands over mouth**:
1. She Knows - Neyo ft. Juicy J
2. 7/11 - Beyonce
3. Feeling Myself - Nicki Manaj ft. Beyonce
4. FourFiveSeconds - Rihanna & Kanye West & Paul McCartney
5. I Don't Mind - Usher ft. Juicy J
6. Shake It Off - Taylor Swift (say what you want about Taylor, she's talented!)
7. Rather Be - Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne
8. Animals - Maroon 5
9. Only - Nicki Minaj ft. Drake & Lil Wayne & Chris Brown (insert monkey face)
....and my favoritestest song (at the moment) is....
10. Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
I'll leave you with the video, because it also makes me super happy and hype.
Happy Friday Ladies :)
