recital time


I think I owe a quick explaination to you of why I'm not posting much this week.
Yes, you guessed it. It's that magical yet oh-so-exhausting time of the year... recital performances. E had her dress rehearsal this morning and I dance in my first (of four) show tonight. On the way to the theater this morning, E whispered to me from the backseat of the car "I'm kinda nervous". To which I replied that its completely normal to have pre recital tummy butterflies.Once she was on the stage and the familiar music began to play, her fears flew and she had more fun than ever.
Afterwards she insisted on driving to Wendy's to try some of their real sea salt natural cut french fries. She had seen a commercial for them on tv... she also always keeps laughter very fluent for us.

I'm off to mold my uncontrollable hair into a bun. Have a splendid Wednesday, lovelies!


  1. Ohmygoodness, I know what you mean about uncontrollable hair. My hair is past my hips and near my waist, and it's always a pain to put it up, much less in the ballet bun. I go to a ballet academy that's in the tradition of traditional Vaganova schools. Our spring performance is coming up on the 11th, and I'm so excited. I love ballet. Love. Break a leg, girl!

  2. do well tonight! I'll be thinking of y'all. ;)

  3. Good luck to you and that sweet E! I hope you can share photos of the performances :)

  4. how fun! i used to dance. i loved it, but never found a STUDIO that i loved. i have fond memories of those recitals though. enjoy it!

  5. Your little sis has the most gorgeous eyes! Good luck in your recitals!

  6. Cute photos! Your sister is adorable :)

  7. Oh my! Four shows?? So awesome!! I had my two performances this last week. They were *so* much fun! Hope you do amazing and have a blast! Can't wait to hear more about the shows ... how many dances you were in, what your costumes looked like etc. Also what kind of dances you're in. (Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap?)
    And I agree wholeheartedly. Magical and oh-so-exhuasting. <3

  8. What a cutie! I just wanted to let you know that your family is in my prayers. I can tell between your blog and your mom's blog that you have a loving and caring family, and you have put your trust in the Lord.
    But I also know that that can be tough!
    Soooo, I'm praying for y'all :)
