i am not going to lie: even though a lot of good stuff happened, september was not my favorite month. if you follow me on twitter, this probably is not a surprise to you, because i certainly did not hide it well. i was so busy i felt like my head was spinning, a jammed hip joint kept me from dancing (and moving in general), and i had to say goodbye to friends that i really didnt want to say goodbye to. i am very ready for october – a new month to breathe deeply and get my life (and my emotions) back on track! i need to get my eating, workouts and life back into a happy groove.

Recital 2012!

This weekend was Recital Weekend at my dance studio Field of Dreams. there were two musicals (willy wonka and Oklahoma) and the actual dance recital itself. I stage managed for the 3 shows and danced in 2 dances in the recital. It was basically the craziest week of my life… And I loved every minute of it! :)

The theme for recital was cirque du soleil, so Nicole and Michelle came in and did cirque makeup on all 70 dancers in the show! It looked amazing!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend:
