Chick Tunes Tuesday – November 2013 Playlist


November has always been a quiet month for me.  Leaves cover the ground.  People are starting to hide in their houses due to the dark skies and colder weather.  It’s a great month to reflect and recharge.

This month the playlist is a mother-daughter creation.  Stuck at only 8 songs and drowning in work I called for my life-line.  M contributed the Christina Grimmie, One Republic, Ellie Goulding & The Neighbourhood tracks to this list.  She’s got a great ear (ok I did say no to a One Direction option, they can’t all be perfect).

I have had this playlist on repeat for the last few days.  Enjoy!




Chick Tunes – October 2013

Oct2013PlaylistI will have two playlists for you this month.. or should I say, end of this month.  We’ll start with the monthly list of what I found on my Shazam and later a Halloween list of tunes.

For October it’s a bit of everything.  My two favorites off this list are the very different “Keep You” by Wild Belle and “You Can’t Be Told” by Valerie June.  What can I say, I like variety.

Until my next Shazam dump, ENJOY!



Chick Tunes Tuesday – September 2013 Playlist

BackToSchoolWe are all back to work and school.  Our lives are controlled by practice schedules and homework.  I miss summer.

I have spent a lot of time at my computer creating, reorganizing and dealing with the usual work bologna (you totally expected me to say crap there didn’t you… I love to surprise people).  Creating this month’s playlist took a little longer than usual because I am a fickle girl.  This mix has a little electronic, a few alternative songs-  let’s be honest, it’s all over the place. A couple are here because dear lord these ladies can SING .  Let’s touch base on the latest “it” girl, and I do mean GIRL. Lorde, this little one is only 16 (perspective – my oldest son is 15… ) let’s just chew on that for a minute.   Lorde is a fun one.  I hope she hangs around for a while, she’ll be a great one to watch.

So here it is, FINALLY, the September playlist.  Enjoy!


Pinterest, you suck.

Pinterest seems to enjoy calling a girl out regarding her age. Some of the pins cruising across my board are mocking me and my decrepit old body. Don’t believe me?  Take a look at these:

Fancy Pantries:  How can a pantry remind me of my advanced years? Well, only old ladies (rather… rich old ladies) can afford a pantry like this.  This one makes me drool.  Organization really is sexy to the over 40 set.

Nurseries:  Oh look a sweet beautiful trendy nursery.  When I had my babies we didn’t have the money for the hip things like rugs or  pom pom curtains.  My youngest is almost 10, so thanks Pinterest for daily reminders of my uterus and the CLOSED FOREVER sign hanging there.


Over 40 Haircuts:  When you search “over 40  hairstyles” this beyotch keeps showing up.













The reality of this haircut?

This hair is more Toni Tennile in the muskrat suzy years than sexy cougar.  If you remember that song you are old too.  Welcome to the party, we serve cocktails at 4 and hit the grey hair special by 5.

Bunk Rooms:  I am inexplicably drawn to pins of bunk rooms.  One day it dawned on me, I am planning for my retirement home and grandchildren  Screw you Pinterest.

Crap That Requires the prophylactic use of pain killers:  You got excited because I use the word PROPHYLACTIC didn’t you.  I am actually talking about the need to pop a motrin or vodka soda before you do the following:

Aren’t they pretty?  I can’t walk for days after I wear anything but an orthopedic nurse shoe.


Tennis anyone?  Dope up ladies because over 40 requires some great meds and hours of stretching to stay on the courts.


Feeling frisky?  Careful, you could pull something.

Pinterest, I get it.  I am not the young hot thing you are targeting.  You don’t need to rub it in.  It would be great if you could stop posting pictures like this.  It’s not fair to the old ladies.  I would say it’s cruel to post pictures of these young handsome devils.
Oh. He’s only two years younger than I am?  Carry on Pinterest.  Carry.  On.
