a very sunny, very girly mix

hello, my frens.
last weekend kind of freaked me out with all the cool weather. i just ended up piling on the blankets because i REFUSED to put on my heat. May needs to get with the program. today was very gorgeous outside with just the right dose of breeziness. i was actually team teaching at the high school today because the 10th grade english teacher and i wanted to collaborate, so i could see where the 10th graders were (to plan for next year. she is coming to team teach with me on thursday, so she can see what she is getting next year. this was the best idea ever, by the way.) besides 16-year-olds, she has something that i do not...WINDOWS. i basically teach in a sunless cave all day and never know what the weather is like. today, i knew at all times, and it was so refreshing. SO refreshing that i decided to make a playlist dedicated to beautiful days like this one. i have been trying to nail down a groovy, girl-friendly mix for some time now, and today, armed with sunny inspiration, i took care of business. this is what i ended up with and can honestly say: i'm kind of a smitten kitten. so far, this mix has been good for baking/cleaning in the apt or driving around with oversized shades on.
