C'mon boys, make some noise!

Jesse and I spent a wonderful weekend in Rhode Island with baseball, a wedding, and our one year wedding anniversary. More details when I get to them (you wouldn't believe how tiring having fun is!), but for now, enjoy this playlist that Liz and I put together! I just downloaded the mix myself, and it RULES!

Liz, amazing music blogger that she is, always posts mixtapes on Mondays. They are all awesome. (You should really start reading her if you love music, too!) The last time I was in Philadelphia, we discussed music with her roommate, Pogo. He said he loved music that crescendo'd or spanned from soft to hard and back and whatnot.

  1. What an awesome mix... I downloaded it and I'm hoping my iPod doesn't eat the files (thanks, Apple!).

    Congrats on the anniversary!

  2. Yes! This is one of my favorite mixes that I have posted. Pogo really digs it too.

    I can't wait to hear about your weekend! Happy Anniversary (a few days late)!


  3. Love this! Haven't listened to the whole thing yet but I will by tomorrow. And I have to add that Mumford & Sons are a band I tried my hardest to resist liking (I mean, come on: their name is "Mumford & Sons"), but I've fallen HARD for their stuff. You kicked this one off right.

  4. Wow a year already, it doesn't seem like that long ago you two got married. Congratulations. & I too am loving the mixtape, I used it to kick off my Thursday morning.
