Shimmies & Fist Pumps

Y'all, something amazing happened the week before last: I won a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs, Today's Letters! If you've never checked this blog out before, do so NOW. Tim and Emily Loerke are one of the most inspirational, fun-loving couples I (don't actually) know, and therefore I like to stalk them on the reg. I mean, just look at them:

Precious, right? Em writes daily letters to her husband/everything, which are a) wonderful, b) clever, c) hilarious, or d) all of the above. Added bonus: I don't even feel like that much of a creeper for stalking their lives so much because she used to be my housemate Madeline's Bible study leader!

Anyway. One day, she asked all the college students who read her blog to answer a few questions. So I did, and my name was one of the ones chosen to win a mix CD of her fave jams!! [insert major excitement about winning, new music, and getting something in the mail HERE.]

I tested out the CD this past weekend, while sitting in a coffee shop across from Margaret, drinking bottomless coffee and a eating a pumpkin muffin and reading articles about things like Pleasure, Pain, and the Power of Being Thin: Female Sexuality in Young Adult Literature," and it was the perfect accompaniment. 

Here's a sampling of my faves for you to enjoy too:

(Bonus points for for having some of my already-faves on the CD, such as Timshel by Mumford & Sons, Laundry Room by Avett Brothers, and Poison & Wine by Civil Wars).

Thanks so much, Em, for making me want to shimmy across the floor and throw some fist pumps and leg kicks!
