In the Midst of Recital Season

Summer is now well on its way… I can’t believe it’s the last week of May!!!! I’ve been busy with rehearsals, only to be followed by more rehearsals. My reading has slowed down a bit. I am only on the fifth book now (it’s 870 pages long too). But it won’t be long before I’ve finished them all I imagine.

Last week I made a surprise visit home to see my Mom and Haley and house-sit for a day while having new windows put in. They were so surprised and had NO clue I was coming home! I wish I would have been home longer but I’ll be back in a couple of weeks and then again at the end of June hopefully. 🙂 They were SO surprised though…. my Dad and I did a good job pulling one past them! 🙂

Here is a picture of the new living room window- with my dad peering in from the outside 🙂 Very nice looking windows!!!

Then it was Haley’s last day of school! I can’t believe she is now a 6th grader! Ugh! Blows my mind!!! She seems excited, maybe a little anxious and nervous but excited for the big transition to Middle School- Eastgate Eagles- here she comes! She’s so grown up now… it’s so weird!!!!

Sunday was Tyler’s 21st Birthday! Unfortunately, it wasn’t anything too spectacular. I had rehearsal like normal. And we did laundry in the morning- what a way to spend your birthday huh? We spent the evening watching movies. Tyler did get a neat present for his birthday… a popcorn maker! It’s called a Stir Crazy and we had tons of fun making popcorn with it! It’s a neat little invention! 🙂 Then yesterday in a continuation of his birthday celebration we went and saw the new Terminator Salvation movie. It was pretty good (after spending the weekend watching Terminators 1, 2 and 3).

“Look at all that Popcorn.” Dash didn’t like the popping noise, but it sure made a TON of popcorn!

Tyler and I ate it all………….. With the help of little Dash! (Look at those TEETH!)

We ended the three day weekend with a nice shopping trip to gear up for summer! As for the rest of this week, it’s reading Harry Potter and rehearsals, followed by a Recital this weekend (and maybe sorting out my closet but possibly not yet). It should be a good, busy, week.

Until Next Time,

When Harry Met….. Megan?!?

It’s OFFICIALLY Summer Break now!!! Woo Hoo!!! After a very successful semester (great grades, getting moved up in all of my dance levels) its nice to get a break… A week in and it’s been great! To celebrate the end of finals Tyler and I went to see the new X Men movie on Wednesday. It was really good! Then the weekend proceeded like normal: teaching on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I helped out with Graduation on Saturday which was nothing too surprising or eventful. Sunday was also a “normal” day: laundry in the morning followed by a trip to the OKC Zoo! 🙂

Last time Tyler and I went to the Zoo the Giraffes were already put up for the night so we made a special trip to see them this time… they are amazing! By far my favorite part of this trip 🙂 Tyler and I both officially want to be Zoo Keepers together now! 🙂

This week I haven’t left the house too much (by choice) as I’ve been reading the Harry Potter Series for the first time (a little late I know) and I’ve already made it through the first two books and now I am well on my way into the third one :). Provided I get the seventh book by next week, I’ll probably be finished if not very close! 🙂 Now I can’t wait to see the movies and really watch them now!!! 🙂 Tyler and I did go see the Star Trek movie last night. It was pretty good, but for someone who had absolutely no previous knowledge of Star Trek, I was a little lost a time or two. But it was a really good movie!

This weekend is full of more rehearsals as recital season is right around the corner!!! AND Tyler’s Birthday is NEXT SUNDAY (May 24th!) He’ll be 21!!!! I can’t even believe it! We’re so OLD! (HA!) Another exciting milestone is tomorrow… One year ago from tomorrow is the day we got our baby Dashington! 🙂 It was weird when he turned a year old in March, but now hes been living with us for a whole year!!! I can’t even believe it! Time flies (a recurring theme in my blogs).

Off to read some more/ clean a little/ watch some Sabrina the Teenage Witch 🙂

Until Next Time,


Four Down, Three to Go :)

Well, it’s finally here… Finals week! And I’m already half way done!!!!

Yesterday I had my Costume Lab Final, Ballet Final (I GOT MOVED UP TO B!!! :)) and my Non Profit Accounting Final. All of them were pretty easy!
Today I had Jazz this morning, and then I have my Jazz Ped Final at 2pm. It’s not really a final. We had to write an 8-10 page paper making a “handbook” for teachers based on a chapter in one of our texts. It wasn’t too bad- then we are going to talk about it during the Final time.
Tomorrow I have Tap leveling in the morning, then Tap Ped in the afternoon and I’ll be DONE!!! I just need to review Tap Ped a little and I’ll be good to go!!! Then I’ll officially be a SENIOR IN COLLEGE!!! Weird!!!
I have no idea what I’m going to do once school is over… I’m going to be so bored!!! Maybe I’ll finally start the Harry Potter Series. But the summer won’t be a complete waste. Through the end of May its teaching and getting ready for two recitals. Then it’ll be off to KC for Haley’s and then for nationals in Branson. Then back to teaching. In July I’m going to be one of the RA’s for the Summer Dance Intensives and get to take classes! Then August will be teaching and getting ready for school… Not to mention babysitting when I can. 🙂 No I certainly won’t be bored will I?
As for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been BUSY!!! Last week was the MFA Thesis Show that I was ASM for. It was a quick show but so much fun! Then was Banquet!!! *See below for pictures* And this past weekend, along with ADP crew, we helped at a dance recital! So I’ve been busy busy busy and am greatly looking forward to relaxing starting Wednesday at 4pm (or as much as I can relax)!
Well, that’s about it! Can’t believe school is almost over and I’m almost a SENIOR!!! Weird.. Time sure does fly! 🙂
Until Next Time,

Me, Andi and Jenna on the Staircase to Banquet

The Amazing Ped Juniors! (ALMOST SENIORS!!!)
Tyler and I at the end of Banquet! 🙂 He’s such a trooper!
