GoNoodle Sanity Savers

If you know me at all (or if you follow me here or here), you know I'm a GoNoodle fanatic. It has changed the way I teach and provides the physical activity my kids need every day. We are happier, healthier, and smarter because of it! 

So today I'm excited to be linking up with the beautiful and talented Elizabeth from Kickin' it in Kindergarten for her GoNoodle Sanity Savers linky! 

My Favorite Brain Break: Koo Koo Kangaroo is my jam. I love their brain break videos because they are catchy and engaging and have choreographed moves that my kids can imitate. And they add new videos all the time, which is AWESOME because novelty is the key to engagement in my book. This week they released a new video called "Pop See Ko," and it is stuck in my head But I don't even mind! 

"Our hands are high. Our feet are low. And this is how we POP SEE KO." 

You're welcome. 

My Happy Place: There is nothing better than being at home with my family. Except maybe being on "becation" (my four year old's way of saying "vacation," which I don't plan to correct anytime soon) with my family. We spent several days in our jammies over Christmas break, and IT. WAS. PERFECT. I've now watched Frozen more times than any other movie in my life. Even more than How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, which should tell you how much I love my babies. 

My Guilty Pleasure: TV feeds my procrastination addiction. It and social media are the main reasons I am up late every night and rarely get anything accomplished. But I looooove my shows. The Bachelor (#sorrynotsorry), Grey's Anatomy, Mistresses (slightly embarrassed to admit that one), Nashville, Parenthood, all of the Kardashian shows (yup, not kidding), Modern Family, Last Man Standing, Love  it or List it, and the list goes on. 
Oh, and Friends is the best show ever made, hands down. 

I'm also a little bit of an online shopping addict. Very Jane and Zulily really know what they're doing with the daily emails filled with adorable stuff. 

Keep Calm: It's FREEZING here. I brought sweatpants to school last week to put on over my leggings for bus duty. #thestruggleisreal

  2. You are the sweetest! Your girls are absolutely adorable! I just read your Pop See Ko sentence and it will be stuck in my head for the rest of the night :) Hope you have a great week, friend! Thanks for linking up!
