caffeine fueled monday // Closer {Music Monday}

Woot to being a nanny for a mom who is a teacher.  Even though it wasn't the kind of spring break I am used to from HS or college, I'll take the extra day off.  I have had a nice morning off.  I got up early enough to hang out with husband before he headed out the door for work and caught up on blogs and entered giveaways like it was my job (<---I wish!). 

While browsing some favorite blogs, and quickly becoming new favorites, I stumbled upon some good work-out motivation for the month of April.  One is to run 50 miles in 30 days from Humble Haro Abode.  I know motivation should come from within but having a challenge certainly helps.  The second is to complete a 30 day Squat Challenge I saw here, from House of Glass.  I was trying on clothes at Target on Saturday, and let me tell you, those mirrors are not flattering.  at. ALL.  I was not happy with what I saw, so this is perfect.  
And since I am still fueled with caffeine from my morning coffee, I have decided to accept these challenges and feel pretty positive about it.  I will let you know how it goes:) 

And with needing motivation, finding good music to listen is a must.  Recently, husband and I have been on a Tegan & Sara kick.  Like I know I have mentioned before, a lot of my favorite Indie type of music favorites come from watching Grey's Anatomy.  Tegan & Sara are no different.  Their song "Where The Good Goes" is still one of my favorites.  I don't think I could ever get sick of it.  However, earlier this year they released an album that has a much more Pop sound to it.  They are someone I definitely see being around for a very long time.  

Tegan & Sara - "Closer"

All I want to get is a little bit closer
All I want to know is, can you come a little closer?

Here comes the breath before we get a little bit closer
Here comes the rush before we touch, come a little closer

The doors are open, the wind is really blowing
The night sky is changing overhead

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

All you think of lately is getting underneath me
All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me

Here comes the heat before we meet a little bit closer
Here comes the spark before the dark, come a little closer

The lights are off and the sun is finally setting
The night sky is changing overhead

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical
I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical

Here come the dreams of you and me
Here come the dreams
Here come the dreams of you and me
Here come the dreams

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical
I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical

I won't treat you like you're typical
I won't treat you like you're typical

All I want to get is a little bit closer
All I want to know is, can you come a little closer?
