I wasn’t sure to post this today or wait until next Tuesday, since summer actually ends this weekend. Sorry for all you summer babies out there! I know I say this every year, but I really need to make a list of songs that have been playing like crazy throughout the past four months; I always forget one or two songs and afterwards I have to go back and add them into the post.
There has been a lot of good music that came out this summer, but you guys know me, the best does not come out in May through August, oh no! They usually start to flourish in April, and stay on the charts in the Top 20 for a long time! What’s funny about that though, is that I only have like three or four that were brought out sometime in spring, and the rest were released in the actual season. I also tend to have one genre in every playlist without even trying, and for this year, it’s been hip hop music. So, I have a lot of rap music making into the list.
So here is your list for 2018!
The Middle by Zedd featuring Maren Morris and The Grey
Wolves by Selena Gomez and Marshmello
Mama by Jonas Blue featuring William Singe
What Lovers Do by Maroon 5 featuring SZA
How Long by Charlie Puth

Okay, so there are less hip hop songs that I thought I would put on here! Honestly, it’s a good mix of different genres on here, so that makes me happy! I feel that it’s a fun and has a lot of tracks to dance to, which is always nice! And I also realized after a while that there is a lot of music with J Balvin in it! I didn’t plan on that but I naturally drawn to reggaeton so that really doesn’t surprise me.
If you’d like to check out my previous summer playlists, here is 2016 and 2017! Hope you enjoyed this post.
What is one song that you heard over and over again this summer?
Over the weekend I went to my neighbor’s house for a birthday/costume party! Since it’s only a couple more weeks until Halloween this was such a cute way to get everybody dressed up and have a little bit of fun! I actually wanted my face made up like a Sugar Skull because I’m a little obsessed with them! As the week trailed on though, I started to think about what I have in my closet. I knew I had a leopard/cheetah print top and pants. So I figured since Sammy was going to do my face makeup anyways, she can make me look like a cat instead! The only thing I didn’t have were the ears, bow tie and tall. My dad ended up getting that stuff the morning of without telling me. I have to say I thought I looked pretty cute in it!
The other day when I got the idea for the backdrop, I asked my dad about having velcro on my camera so when I was in my electric wheelchair I wouldn’t have to worry about dropping it when I’m driving. So he put a small strip on the bottom and now it sticks to my chair like my phone does! When we first went over there, nobody was outside yet so we went back to the house and chilled out for a bit. I stayed outside in my wheelchair and proceed to go around the house and take pictures. I was in the middle of taking Otis, Nelly, and Bear Bear’s pictures and I had taken roughly 10 before this little thing popped up on the screen and I could barely see it at first because it was so bright out there in the sun and it read “internal battery is full” and I went up to the front door and asked my mom what that meant and she came up to me and asked if I remembered to put the memory card back into the camera after I finished uploading.. I guess I didn’t because it was still in my laptop when she went in to check for me. I felt like a goofball but I am still learning it though!
After a half hour we went over and they had a beautiful bonfire already going. Sammy loves her bonfires and I didn’t know I missed being around one until I parked myself by it. Oh my goodness, it felt so nice! I was starting to feel pretty chilly in the shade, so I spent most of my time over by the fire. At first, I was the only one who had dressed up but as more people started to come by the house Sammy, Chey and their mom got their costumes on too! Sammy and her friend Morgan were like cowgirls. It was very cute. I’m not used to seeing Sammy in a dress and she was getting very chilly and frustrated with the stockings trying to fall down her knees! My dad was the one who mostly wore Sammy’s cowgirl hat. Chevy was a scarecrow and Sammy actually made the costume herself. She had the overalls and plaid top, they bought a small bale of hay to stuff into her sleeves. Sammy made up her face, she was so adorable! Chey dressed up as a Hershey’s kiss!! I was impressed!! So cute!! And Tressa was a nun. She had the “Mother Theresa” look and then she had the naughty nun. It was hilarious! I thought nothing could beat the gorilla suit but I was wrong!
Chey seemed to like the gifts, even though she was MORE happy about the money! One of my dad’s friends we call him “Ragtop” got Chey and Chevy each a gift that way the other doesn’t take it you know, but he had a another plastic bag and inside this bag was a purple glitter pumpkin! I almost started crying because it was such a surprise. I shared a picture the other day of a purple pumpkin I saw last year and took a picture of because I couldn’t have it. I have to say I loved Chey’s birthday cake. She loves SpongeBob SquarePants so it fit her very well I thought! I have to say the party itself was really fun!! I kept forgetting I had my camera so I ended up having less pictures than I wanted but it’s okay.
