So our little girl turned 5 last Tuesday, we had her party Saturday. She, of course, wanted a FROZEN themed party. We normally have a pool party and that takes away any games or entertaining I have to do lol. This year it poured ALL. DAY. LONG. I'm not even exaggerating, it rained for like 36 hours straight. Needless to say, Friday night I had to Pinterest and Google party games for kids. I found a few quick and easy ones and I though if all else failed I would just out Frozen in and let the kids sing and dance. Here are a few photos.
My sister makes Lorelei a costume every year ( she is a costume designer in Chicago). This year of course was an Elsa dress.
Day of the party, waiting for guests to arrive
Some of the decorations
And two of the games we played, a Frozen scavenger hunt and a Sven Ring Toss.
Needless to say, the Hubs and I were exhausted on Sunday and we literally did nothing. He played videos games and I shamelessly watched an NCIS marathon all day. I almost felt guilty.... until I didn't.

So I've bee thinking of cutting my hair. 90% of my life I've had long hair. I get the urge to cut it once in a while, donate it to Locks of Love. But I've never really gone shorter than shoulder length. Well here is kinda what I'm looking at doing....
So here's the thing. I have THICK, THICK hair and it kinda naturally wavy. Not sure how this cut would pan out. In my head I see it looking afro like lol. My hubs is totally down for this cut because all he's ever seen is long hair. And he is usually seeing it when he unclogs the drain. I kinda have a round face too. Who am I kidding my face it just round, not heart shaped or anything cute like that, just round.
I just need some opinions from some people not afraid to hurt my feelings, and you guys seemed like just the people lol.

Squeezed in a fun run this weekend. Haven't done an actual race since the Spartan so I was due. My sister who lives in Chicago was in town too, so she did it with me. Her first race ever!. She's been running for a while but hasn't done a race, mostly because she didn't want to do it by herself. The race was not times, well not individually timed. They started us off at 8AM sharp and you had 60 minutes to get as much mileage as you could and still make it back before the hour was up. You received raffle tickets at each half mile, so the farther you went the better chance you had at winning a prize. My sister and I went 4 miles total. We thought about going the extra mile but we weren't sure we could make it back in time to put our tickets in for the raffle. We ended up with a pretty good time.
Also when we picked up our packets the doctor who sponsors this race was there and said we received extra high fives if we dressed up like rockers. And we were all, well hell yeah, extra high fives! So we dressed up...
Well apparently we are the only ones who care about extra high fives because we were the only people dressed up. The doctor got super excited, and made sure to high five us everytime he saw us. It was fun though. I won a Starbucks gift card and my sister one free entry into a Dirty Dash race. Unfortunately they don't do those races in Chicago so we ended up switching prizes. So now I have a free entry into a Dirty Dash!! Super extra. There one in September in Billings I believe... road trip!
When my little one saw us in our tutu's she had to wear hers as well, her is a pick I snapped when she was watching the raffle.
My sister had to go home today. Sad face. Hope she finds more races to do. Shouldn't be hard, Chicago should have waaaaay more than little ole Montana.
