Truth: I will take any opportunity to dance. Sometimes involuntarily, just because there is music playing.

Second truth: As you know, peanut butter and jelly is my favorite meal.

Third truth: I became a real Sesame Street fan when I was a teenager. I dig what the show is about. And also Grover.

Fourth truth: For as shy as I can be, I am not afraid of looking silly in public if it means helping other people get past their own inhibitions and have a good time.

Bottom line: I have found a new must-see band.

Let’s be honest, when I read that Koo Koo Kanga Roo described themselves as “the Beastie Boys multiplied by Sesame Street plus the driving dance beats of Daft Punk and the live show antics of the Flaming Lips,” I knew we had a winner.

So if you want to have probably the most out-of-your-seat fun you will have at a concert, check this band out while they are still on tour. Even my husband, who claims he absolutely does not dance was dancing. So now you have to go.

Here are the tour dates shamelessly ported from their site:

In conclusion: “Unicorns R Real” is stuck in my head right now. The end.

After a long and restful holiday, I’ve had some trouble getting back into productivity mode, so last week I decided to step up my game and get motivated. I achieved this using two very signature Lisa tactics: lists and rewards.

Each week, I write down ten “To Do” items I’d really rather not and a reward that makes them worth it. This was was this week’s reward (and consequently, today’s Old Navy haul):

Cropped Active Leggings ($15)

Look awesome. Feel awesome. Make me want to run even more than usual! Love.

*Bonus find:

Active Sports Bra ($3.14!!!)

Found this bra on clearance and snatched up two. I suggest you do the same!

 

Your turn: Are you a list writer or self-rewarder? Any other motivational tips for me?
