Three Things Thursday


Here's a different spin to "Three Things Thursday".... 3 Topics with 3 things under each topic. Some might call it "Nine Things Thursday". This is my blog, I'll do whatever I want!

1. Music:
I have a few songs right now that I keep playing over and over again on my ipod. I go through phases with my music, alternating favorite genres and songs - depending on my mood. But, the past couple of weeks one would think I was trying to kill these songs by how often I listen to them. Don't judge my taste in music.

Imma Be - Black Eyed Peas
Great tempo - I used this song when I working on crunches with the medicine ball the other day and was very sore!






The Killers - Human
I love to run to this song. It's a combinatoin of the tempo and the lyrics... they just get me going!






Lady Antebellum - Need You Now
I haven't been a huge country fan for a long while now, but there's just something about this one. I really like this group... and have been listening to this song while I cool-down and stretch.








2. Sports
For those of you who are new followers to my blog, I am a huge sports fanatic and love all sports, especially college hoops and baseball. I watch a bit of the NBA, and have followed more football this year than ever (did y'all catch see how good the Vikes were this year?). So, here's a few of my favorites athletes. Believe me, it was hard to narrow down to three right now.

#33 - Justin Morneau - 1st baseman, MN Twins #69 - Jared Allen - MN Vikings - Defensive End
#50 - Tyler Hansbrough - UNC Tar Heels - forward (now with the Indiana Pacers)

3. Movies
I am not a HUGE movie buff and really don't watch too many movies since I struggle to sit still for more than an hour and focus on one thing, but there are a few movies that I could watch over and over and over again, depending on my mood.

Billy Madison - it's a tradition of mine to watch this every year before the school year begins... I love Adam Sandler and this is one of my favorite movies of his.

Moulin Rouge - Great love story with awesome music. Need I say more?

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - I usually watch this a couple times before Christmas. HIL.AR.I.OUS.

Do you have any favorites in the categories listed above?

I always change my playlists up in iTunes. Just about every month or so.

Staci Dombroski said...

My husband and I always watch Christmas Vacation! Great playlists :-)

Shannon said...

I've never seen Moulin Rouge! Sad, I know. I really need to hit up iTunes soon...

Colleen said...

I love the Imma be song! Gets me through some tough workouts too! :)

Mary said...

I love that Black eyed peas song!! Very cool post...maybe I need to get into MN sports more. ;)

Did I know you were a UNC fan?? Cause now I love you more!! Tough year this year, but I love em anyway. Been following them my whole life! I love college hoops in general- can't wait for March Madness. My early call is Villanova, Syracuse, Kentucky, Kansas. And/or probably a sleeper team like Baylor or Gonzaga. Of course, it depends where they fall in the bracket, but I'm just saying.

As for baseball, I am a Phillies girl <3

I have to tell you, I am *not* a fan of that new BEP song. Then again, it will probably grow on me eventually like most of their songs do until I quickly get sick of it for being overplayed. :p

Human is pretty much my all-time favourite song. I LOVE it.

Jen said...

Love, love UNC! it was the only college I thought existed growing up. And I even got in, but my parents could not afford the out of state tuition.

I love the BEPs too!

Check out my blog for a cool giveaway!

Julie said...

I love the Black Eyed Peas! Lady Antebellum's Need You Now is one of my current favorites:)

Anne Marie said...

Thanks for the song rec's. I am in DIRE need of some new tunes and have just been too lazy to do so. So thanks for the push!

Wes said...

3x3!! :-)

IzzyBubbles said...

I love both Imma Be and Human...will have to check out your 3rd rec on the music! Christmas Vacation is hands-down my favorite Christmas movie EVER! But I think my favorite go-to movie is the Princess Bride, I never get tired of it.

Jon Gilchrist said...

Amanda - RunToTheFinish said...

yeahhh lady antebellum, I thought only i liked country

Steel Springs said...

I get into phases where I just want to listen to the same song over and over again, too. Right now I'm loving "Hey, Soul Sister" by Train.

Lisa said...

i get hooked on certain songs for working our too! I'm loving Matisyahu's album Light. The name of the song I enjoy most is escaping me though

Nat said...

I have the killers and black eyed peas on my ipod too! Love them! I always thought someone should start an ipod exchange program where you exchange ipods with someone else. Would be so fun to see what other people listen to while running/working out wouldn't it?!

Kelly said...

Haha I love 9 things Thursday! I am the same way about movies, I lose focus and I don't like to sit for too long. I usually am on the computer at the same time, oops!

MCM Mama said...

i'm the same way about movies. i can only sit still for a movie if I'm also reading a book or playing on the computer. Sad, I know.

Badgergirl said...

I like the 3x3 list! The Killers are great to workout to, although yesterday my workout playlist was a Reel Big Fish album (great stuff).

Athletes? So many to choose from. But if I had to pick three - Andy Roddick, JJ Hardy (why'd the Brewers let him go to the Twins?) and Mike Kelley (a Badger from 1997-2001, helped take the team to the Final Four, now does college basketball commentary, mostly for Big East games).

Movies, I can't sit still. Although The Princess Bride is a favorite, so is Animal House.

Carly said...

Christmas Vacation and Billy Madison are my two favorites!!!

Are you planning any races this year in minneapolis?
