Birthday Fun + New Playlist additions

So this year started off pretty good! For my birthday I got some pretty sweet gifts too, including a new pink ipod that was totally unexpected and has already been loaded up with all my race songs for this weekend! I tried it out this morning on my three miler and it worked out great. It’s screen is so much nicer and larger and I didn’t realize what a cool feature having a color screen was. DJ got me the sickest shirt ever that says iRep Long Beach! I love it. I got some sweet giftcards and some dinero too, which is always nice. I had a great time with my family and friends as well. Thank you so much for all the kind words and birthday wishes! :) It was a great day.


I had a delicious funfetti cake that my grandma made and we had this awesome macaroni and cheese that my aunt made.


That night we went out to some bars down the street with some friends. It was fun, and there was some dancing. But for some reason I didn’t take any pictures? Oh well.

Speaking of music and dancing, so how I run with music is that I have about 11 hours loaded up on one iPod and just put that on shuffle and what comes up, comes up. Now, this takes a lot of music but I wanted to share the latest of the list that I’ve recently added to my “speed mix”

Jay-Z and Rhianna – Run this Town

Pink – Sober

Silly Boy – Rhianna ft. Lady Gaga

Memories – David Guetta

Meet me Halfway – Black Eyed Peas

Already Gone – Kelly Clarkson

Replay – IYAZ

Baby By Me – 50 Cent

3 – Britney Spears

When Love Takes Over – David Guetta

Sexy Bitch – David Guetta

LOL (Smiley Face) – Trey Songz

Drop it Low – Ester Dean

Shots – LMAFO

Sweet Dreams – Beyonce

Fire Burning on the Dance Floor – Sean Kingston

Wow (Mstrkrft Remix) – Kylie Minogue

Good Girls Go Bad – Cobra Starship

Throw it in the Bag – Fabolous

Then I’ve added a lot of Lady Gaga, since I have an obsession with her and most of all the Black Eyed Peas songs also. Here are some past posts where I also posted music, check it out here and this one has a lot of the ‘classic’ playlists songs.

This morning I woke up with a little bit of a stuffy nose, but I’m going to combat this sickness before it even gets the chance to get the best of me. Oh and let’s go Angels!! Light up that halo! :)

    One of my students came in last week and said, “You know how you get Lady Gaga to cry?”

    I said, NO.

    “Poker Face.”

    If you get a chance to see Gaga in concert – YOU MUST! She is amazing. Also the other day when I heard that LOL Smiley Face song, I totally thought of you. Hahaha! I knew you would like it. Gangsta biznitches unite!!! Good luck this weekend and happy birthday chica.

    I have similar music taste to you so I thought I’d give ya a couple of recs!

    Have you heard “Evacuate the Dancefloor” – Cascada? I think you’d like it if you haven’t – sort of between that Wow song and Good Girls Go Bad (another guilty pleasure of mine).

    Heartbreaker by MSTRKRFT is similar to Memories, and has that thumping bass I love to run to.
