Dance Party, King Julien, Merry Christmas!

This post is part of a year-long partnership with the Netflix #StreamTeam. I received a one year Netflix streaming subscription and an iPad mini for participating. I've been a paying customer of Netflix for 8 years--I'd be lost without her.  Thanks for reading!

In honor of "All Hail King Julien" coming out on Netflix this month (it's available now!) I wanted to share a little peek into one of Carter's dance parties. If you've seen Madagascar then you're probably already familiar with King Julien. If not, you have some catching up to do!


(I apologize for my less than stellar videography skills)

So, Christmas. Three days away. For the first time in forever (hello, subconscious Frozen soundtrack playing in my brain...still) I have almost all of my gifts wrapped already. Total weight off my shoulders. Things are slowing down here as we're getting ready for Christmas and that's my favorite. Tom starts his vacation tomorrow and we're going out to breakfast while Carter's at preschool. Holy excitement. This is our THIRD breakfast date since school started. It's possibly the best thing to have happened to us in 2014. 

So, question. Who has a hard time falling asleep at night? Oh, everyone? OK. My sister enlightened me with the greatest foolproof way to get to sleep super fast (and I'm not trying to sell you any fancy essential oils either). haha! Read the Count of Monte Cristo before you fall asleep. Why?

1. It's free on iBooks
2. It's a classic and everyone should read as many classics as possible in order to be a whole, real person
3. Tip: Watch it on Netflix first. No, I'm serious. Break the rule with this one. Watching the movie first will get you all into the Count of Monte Cristo spirit and then the book is even more dramatic. And it's exciting, but a little bit hard to read when you're tired. It's that perfect balance of attention-holding, but sleep-inducing (thanks to its wearily long length and wordiness).

So Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah (yay, you still have two more days!) Drink coffee with a splash of egg nog and build Lego sets until your eyes cross. I'll see you on the other side. xo
