Okay, we’ve got the dress, the accessories, and the party plans… and no party is complete without a perfect playlist. Good thing you know me. ‘Cause it just so happens I have a pretty sweet birthday party playlist… right here:
And you you can bet money that this is what we are listening to at this very second in time while sipping on some Kirs and applying falsies.
If you know anything about me, you know that I love a good dance party. Um, hello? Have you seen my “How To” videos? You can’t learn moves like those. Not that you really need a reason to have your own dance party, but a birthday is a pretty surefire way to get one started. Whether it’s your birthday, your friend’s birthday, or you just enjoy dancing as much I do, here’s a great playlist to shake your limbs to.
I’ll dance if I want to.
When I tire of listening to the same playlist over and over and over…. and. Well, you see where I’m headed. I turn to my dear friend, Katie (who, if you will recall, guest “dj’ed” before). She poo poo’s my Christina and Bruno and pulls me out from my teenage pop abyss. I mean, that’s what friends are for, right? Listen, Katie knows her music– so, if anyone’s looking for an A&R, this is the girl. Anyway, I asked Katie to please, please, please make me a playlist that wouldn’t make someone over the age of 16 cringe and she put together this little party:
Oh, Katie… just climbing her way to the top of the charts.
I was going to go ahead and continue the West Virginia theme for this weekend’s playlist, but realized that a Labor Day playlist might be much more suited. We all work very hard, so it’s great to finally take a moment and just relax. So enjoy that extended weekend cause you probably won’t catch another day off til Thanksgiving.
