    Oh thank the lord Heather is driving.

    I am at my house making beach lists and drinking all of the good wine. You can’t stop me.

    Camping at 34 weeks pregnant and with a three-year-old. Like a BOSS. Or the village idiot.

  • Amber Says:

    Your life is such an adventure, Maggie. You two have fun.

  • Emily Says:

    I’m back in my hometown for a wedding. These tunes are much appreciated given the car trips and layovers ahead.

  • Kate Andrews Says:

    LIstening now on a rainy Winter day in Sydney. A nice bit of sunshine – ta!

  • Shevon Says:

    Just picked my parents up at the Fukuoka airport for their first visit to us since we moved!! So excited

  • Ms. Jen Says:

    Yesterday and today was Over the Air 2012 mobile conf at Bletchley Park and the rest of the long weekend in London for the Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.

    Tomorrow is standing by the Thames River watching a lot of boats go by in the Queen’s honor while drinking in Public.

    Can’t do that back home in LA!

    Best part is that it is cloudy, rainy and 59F.

  • Theresa Says:

    At least 50% of those songs are on current rotation in our house – I will now add the other 50%. Thanks for that – new songs are always welcome. Have a great trip!

  • Elise Says:

    Excellent mix! I have an amazon mp3 credit and am just in the market for some new tunes to purchase impulsively. This week I’m starting a new fitness plan (lord help) and planning activities for a vacation in Spain at the end of July. woot!

  • Alyce Says:

    Enjoying the bay area sunshine with friends new and old. Watching boys play basketball in the park. Sipping a surreptitious margarita. Reading a page or two and getting lost in my own thoughts.

  • Pretzel Thief Says:

    Ugh. Lamentably? Freezing my [everything] off at work and counting down the last 10ish minutes till I can haul ass home to a warm apartment and nutritious pizza for dinner with the hubs.

    ‘Cause I’m a badass like that.

    Or something.

    (It’s winter here in Melbourne, Australia. It has been bleak and raining ALL DAY. Ack!)

    Hope you and Heather had a blast @ MaxFunCon! The playlist is awesomesauce.

  • Amber Says:

    Brilliant playlist! You should absolutely think about adding “Bam Bam” by King Charles. It is RIDICULOUS and great. (Right? Have you heard it? I cannot seem to stop listening to it. Or hearing that BOM BOM refrain in my head.)

  • Lindsay Says:

    This list is awesome, Maggie! A good playlist always helps to make time fly (or speed along a little faster) on the road.

  • Cheryl Says:

    what a fab playlist! <3 it — thanks from a girl who drives a lot.

  • Daffodil Campbell Says:

    Okay, the next time you are doing something like this I call backseat. (I used to call shotgun, but the backseat is so much better for napping, and no one asks me to navigate. So.)
    You make the best playlists.

  • Brandy Says:

    I heard this mash-up yesterday and you immediately came to mind: http://youtu.be/bnnVieW-3OQ

    Dance! :D

  • Amanda Says:

    I have been listening to “Some Nights” on repeat since you posted this! I thank you; my roommates may not.

  • Heather Says:

    Kick Drum Heart is one of my faves. for sure.
