Weekend playlist

My motto is work hard, play harder. For me, that usually takes some planning. (I need a plan, I just can’t help it!) Each Friday, I will post my weekend playlist: a lineup of what’s on tap for our family’s weekend. I will end each post with the top five songs on my running/walking playlist. I hope you will comment with your weekend plans and playlist. My goal is to inspire each other and share some new, fun, family things to do.

June 20-21

  • Date with the treadmill. It is supposed to rain here in Nashville Saturday morning. Let’s be clear: I HATE running the in the rain. I only do it when I absolutely have to. Like when I’ve trained for months and paid a lot of cash to run a race. Training runs in the rain? Not going to happen. Therefore, I will head to the YMCA Saturday morning with a four-mile goal. Will it be boring? Yes. Will it be better than running in the rain? YES!
  • Trip to American Girl. The long awaited American Girl Store opened in Nashville (Franklin, actually) a few weeks ago. We were away for a family wedding for the opening celebration, so I promised Hallie I would take her soon. Brett is brewing beer on Saturday, it will be raining, so it’s the perfect time to spend an afternoon at the mall (that is an oxymoron — there is no good time to go to the mall). Anyway, we will take Grace along and might get her ears pierced.
  • Family flick. We plan to go see the highly anticipated Inside Out this weekend. I am so excited about this movie because it is a Disney Pixar film and those rarely miss the mark. I will post a review on Sunday. (I am trying not to read any other reviews until I see the film, but it’s my understanding I should bring some tissues!)
  • Father’s Day. I am going to be a little vague here, as I think Brett reads this blog. Let’s just say Hallie and I have a few surprises in store for him. I may post some photos on the Facebook page.
  • Playlist:
    • “Beautiful Day” U2
    • “Don’t Bring Me Down” Electric Light Orchestra
    • “Animal” Def Leppard
    • “Are You Going to Go My Way” Lenny Kravitz
    • “Paris” Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

What’s on YOUR weekend playlist? Let me know in the comments below.

    Love your blog Jennifer… Love U2’s Beautiful Day. Amber went with some friends to a cabin somewhere where there’s no cell service. 1st time EVER haven’t been able to get a hold of her. It’s freaking me out. Can’t wait til she comes home. Gonna get my hair trimmed today and watch World Cup soccer and try to do some weight training today and walking/running tomorrow. I’m a little tired so probably won’t get too much housework done… of course, laundry always takes up a good chunk of the weekend. 😉
    Have fun at American Girl. Hope you have lots of $$ with ya. hahaha

      Thanks, Lynette! Sounds like you have a busy weekend. Well, we didn’t make it to American Girl… but we did get three out of four plans accomplished. Have a great rest of the weekend!
