{GIVEAWAY} o.a.r. and erik hutchinson @ mpp

One of my favorite summer traditions of the DMV is O.A.R. playing at Merriweather Post Pavilion (but fun fact: before they moved up to MD, I saw them at Wolf Trap oh way back when). And this year is no different with the annual O.A.R. show -- with Erik Hutchinson! -- on August 13. AND, even better, we're giving away a pair of tickets to see it!!

Flashback to some high school nostalgia by listening to "Hey Girl," then be sure to enter below:

weekend thoughts...

It's going to top 100 degrees here in DC this weekend. Stay safe, stay hydrated, and just relax this weekend, TIOJers! (And yes, wine counts as hydration.) Happy Friday!

Your Weekend Jam: Tinie Tempah’s “Girls Like” is soooo dance-ready it *almost* makes us want to go out dancing in Dupont tonight. Almost.

TIOJ Thoughts: 

Wanderlusting over this Provence playlist.


The top wedding songs of 2016.

{PLAYLIST} newport folk festival

As temperatures approach triple digits in DC, a wonderful weekend away at a folksy, bluesy, northern festival is sounding better and better to us. To those lucky souls who are attending the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island this weekend (where temperatures will only be in the 80s), we salute you. We are also super jealous.


Press play and pretend you're in RI with us!

{THROWBACK} "i love you always forever"

I was stopped dead in my tracks halfway through this playlist when I realized this gorgeous song from Betty Who was actually one of my most favorite songs from elementary school. See for yourself:

True life: I used to sing Donna Lewis' original version of this song allll the time and I definitely thought the chorus was "I love you, always forever. Neemoomfa, push it together." (Stacey just confirmed via gchat that I was not the only one, phew!)
