The Good Stuff

Since I can't eat anything fun or drink my beloved BMJ and my biologic drug is wearing off and my symptoms are reappearing, let's talk about the good stuff today!  You don't want to hear my sob story.

1.  The Skimm - Since the only shows I watch on daytime TV are cartoons, princess movies, and General Hospital, I have no idea what's going on in the world.  By the time Mr. BMJ and I sit down to watch adult TV, the news is long gone and we have better things to watch anyways.  Now, The Skimm keeps me updated with short summaries of all the major news stories and I feel like a member of society again.  What a genius concept!  Sign up here.



2.  This article about not judging moms who are on their iPhones made me smile and removed a brick in my mommy guilt wall.  It's a must read if you're a mom or if you're a judgy mcjudgerston of moms on their iPhones!  You never know what is going on in that mom's life and how much undivided attention that child receives all day, ever day.  


3.  These pajamas are EVERYTHING and would make a wonderful birthday present!  I just know they'll help me sleep better.  New York, Paris, and London all in one print?!  I die.  You have plenty of time to get them in the mail and delivered to me by Wednesday.  Just shoot me an e-mail if you need my address....



4.  Ballet is my jam.  I'm still attempting to dance at my old age and it's my preferred form of exercise!  This Under Armour Ad spoke to me.  I danced for 14 years as a child and was told by a grouchy Russian instructor to give up my dream to go professional.  I was too fat and not good enough.  I may not have been good enough, but I had no body fat at that point in time.  Unbelievable.  Misty Copeland is an amazing example of how this industry needs to redefine its standards.  She was rejected at age 13 for her body type.  Look at her now!  



5.  In honor of Shark Week, I give you this....  


I just couldn't help myself.


p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  I have 22 days on the countdown until NYC for NYFW!  That runway show invitation should be in my inbox sometime next week.  Hopefully....

  5. Dancing has a special place in my heart...I competed for 20 years and taught as well. I never had the "ballet body" either...it's quite difficult to attain even if you dance for hours every day. I prefer dance and barre classes for exercise too.
