Summer 2014 Playlist – ROADTRIP

Bittersweet Susie | Summer Playlist 2014 | Roadtrip

Grandpa Delaney – the coolest!

 Ahh summertime – you know what that means? Yes, waiting in a too long line to see a movie we have seen a thousand times but this time it’s in a cemetery so clearly this is better. BUT it also means its time for my annual SUMMER PLAYLIST (which may or may not actually be annual!)

Check out some of my other playlists here!

I have given this one the theme of the ROADTRIP. I can think of nothing I want to do more than to sit on my ass until it falls asleep with the pooling sweat making my thighs stick to the seat! HEAVEN

But seriously, I want to go on a road trip and see all the neon signs and eat ALL THE THINGS. Any suggestions for the ultimate but also maybe doable in a week road trip?

To go with this delightful collection of the most random of tunes I have included some amazing Polaroids I found of my dad and his parents – 1960 whatever I am sure.

Let’s Dance On – Summer Mix Vol 2

Hi Friends! How are you? You look thin!

It is summertime and you know what that means – beach, flip flops, BBQs, tans…

Or for most of us working stiffs in means sitting in a no window too cold dark office.


I also made one of these beauties last year and I kind of blew my wad with the whole summer theme on that one. This one is more of a complete ride to get you through those summer months. Booze, adventures, possible make outs, fights, dance parties. TOTALLY NORMAL for someone in their 30s, moving on.
