I'm Shrinking

I don't know when it happened, but I'm convinced I'm shrinking.
THIS, is my current favorite outfit. The shoes are a Steve Madden wedge that make me a pinch taller. The leggins are from Alo Yoga, smooth as BUTTER. The vest ... Wait. For. It. Cat & Jack from Target Kids. It's happened friends. Maggie and I wear the same size. Dunno when it happened, but it's here.

P.S. How do I fit into the girls line at Target? #TravelSize

Netflix Birthdays On-Demand #StreamTeam

The pressure is on parents for the perfect Birthday party. I'll admit it, I've come up short. I'm not sure when it all changed. Where did we lose control? When I was a kid, my mom would make a box cake, throw some candles on it. Our family would sing Happy Birthday, cue presents and that was it.

Would you believe 3/4 of parents today feel pressure to make things party perfect? Some stress points: money (the average party spend is $200), time (the average prep time is 10 hours), social media and competition (do NOT go down the Pinterest rabbit hole).
Guess what? Netflix has an easier way. For the first time ever, Netflix has released Birthdays On-Demand. From Lego Ninjago to Skylander, to Barbie they have 15 of your kid's favorite characters singing directly to them.
It literally could not be easier. Just search "Birthday" on Netflix and choose between: DreamWorks All Hail King Julien, Barbie, Beat Bugs, DreamWorks Dinotrux, Las Leyendas, LEGO Friends, LEGO Ninjago, Luna Petunia, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, My Little Pony, Pokemon, Project Mc2, Skylanders Academy, DreamWorks Trollhunters and Word Party.

My kids look for any reason to eat cake. I surprised my daughter with a half Birthday party complete with her friends from All Hail King Julian. Fun and done! Thanks Netflix for having our back!

More Fun

I've decided if I'm going to make the Miami Marathon work, I need to inject more fun into my workouts.
It's not clear to me what that means or what that looks like, but after this weekend's brutal 12 miler, it has to happen. I have a long training season ahead. Sure would be nice to have some fun along the way, don't you think?
