Music Monday and Good News!

Camrie got her cast off finally!
When she got it off before, apparently it was hairy as heck.
Thick black hair all the way up her hand.
Sick.
I was kind of looking forward to seeing it like that.
I just got a hug from her with two nice soft arms!
It is scrawny but not really hairy at all..
She can't straighten it.. this is weird for me.
She thinks I'm crazy for being so fascinated but I just wasn't here the first time she got it off.
Next, my mom went music hunting.
She found some gems!
This is my favorite one right now. I haven't heard it anywhere else but I LOVE it!
Happy Monday minions :)

Recital Week

Its recital week and I am as busy as ever.
The funny thing is, I'm not even nearly as heavily involved as I used to be!
Truth is, I miss it.
I miss it so so much!
I miss being a part of a team.
Dancing with my friends every day.
When I got to wear all the pretty costumes and have the stage make up and hair.
The glitter, the tights, the buns.
I miss everything.
I miss learning dances and perfecting them until midnight the night before the show.
Dancing at JDA has been one of my favorite times in my life and I'm sure it always will be.
This year, I am happy to say that I am dancing in the recital and there have been quite a few late nights getting my dances together.
I'm dancing with Jordan Zemp, Michelle Zemp, and Tessa Merrill.
We all have busy schedules working and such so its tough to work around it but we find time. late at night. to rehearse and perfect it.
It is almost like being a part of a team again.
I guess that's exactly what it is.
But I have to say that I miss Miss Jodi and my mom yelling corrections at us..
I also have to say that I really like our dance this year.
And you should know. We are dancing for two reasons.
1. Because we love it.
2. To advertise for our summer dance camp that Jordan, Michelle, and I are doing this year.
Its going to be awesome and everyone should come!
I cannot wait for that week. Its definitely going to be a week to remember.
Anyway, as I have been watching the recital happenings going on this week and weeks leading up to this one, I have been quietly filming little bits and pieces here and there.
This is the result. I'm quite proud of this little gem.
Enjoy!

This is super terrible quality... I can't make it good quality. I'll upload it to YouTube one day in the near future. Watch if you want to with the bad quality. If not, I'll keep you posted on when it goes to YouTube.

Update a little bit

I'm home now. 
Have been for two weeks. 
and I am absolutely and completely loving it!
Being home is just fabulous!
Being with my family feels so good. 
I am just loving life. 
I start work on Wednesday. 
I'm kind of excited but then again, I'm kind of dreading it. 
It will be nice to have something to do again.
I have been helping out a lot with the dance studio because the recital is coming up next week. 
I get to help with the decorations and such which I am really excited about!
I also get to dance in it with Michelle, Jordan, and Tessa. 
We have been choreographing a dance together the past week and I quite like it!
I travelled to Cranbrook, BC to help out my family with Dance Competition.
Can I just brag for a second and say how stinking cute and talented my sisters are?!
They seriously are the cutest little performers on stage and I am so proud whenever they are up there!
As my mom was helping her other classes and such, I was there to help my sisters when they needed it and I felt kinda like a mom of my own. 
It made me excited to have my own little dancers one day that I can watch on stage and be proud of too. 
As for now though, my sisters will surely suffice haha
Competition ended up going really well! 
Everyone performed great so it was a goooood weekend.
I have been going to aerobics at 6 am with my mom while I've been home and boy has that ever been brutal! 
I am sore and tired after but then again, it does feel good to keep exercising. 
Well... that's all for now. Hopefully with the recital and work starting I'll have some more exciting posts in the near future!
Rock on.
