Me as of late....

Lately I have really been into the following things:

Downton Abbey

 Ok, so who hasn't been into this lately? It's incredible. I love the combination of the two worlds and the whole pride and prejudice feel of it all. How would it be to get all dressed up for dinner every night and go on long walks and basically have your full time job be to look pretty all the time? I definitely was born in the wrong time period ;) Though I would NOT have survived with out makeup. I am not one of those naturally beautiful people....(need all the help I can get)....but if the early 1900's had lip gloss, ya I would have rocked it!

Greek Yogurt

In high school I ate mandarin orange flavored yogurt everyday for lunch. In college I branched out a bit and had different flavors but still stuck with yoplait every single day. Since then I have not been able to even look at yogurt....BLEH! It makes me sick. Then the other day I was at Kevin's parents house and they had Greek yogurt and for some reason I decided to try it. Wow. It is amazing! I keep looking for it wherever I go and I can't seem to find it in big bulks. I should probably try costco. If you haven't tried it, go for it! Mmmmmm.....wish I had some right now ;)


Vampire Diaries

Ok I admit it. I am totally in love with this show. My sister got me hooked (sorry Morgs.....I just outed you!) and it is delicious! These vampires don't even compare to those in Twilight.......they are so much more......hmmm......what is the word I'm looking for??? Oh I know! Attractive! haha ;) No but seriously it is a great show and if you haven't seen it you should check it out. You will be hooked. If you don't believe me then maybe this pic will help you......

Sock Bun

I saw this on pinterest and I've been doing it to my hair ever since. It is so easy and so cute and super classy. I definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't like to wear their hair down every day. If you don't know how to do it this is how I do it.....I just used a leg warmer and rolled it up so it looks like a doughnut. Put your hair in a pony tail and put the "sock" thru your hair. Spread your hair out over the sock so it is covered up and wrap an elastic over it. Add a couple of bobby pins to hide the stray hairs and BAM! Looks awesome right?!?


This one has especially made me so happy lately. My good friend Janie convinced me to perform in this show with her and so for the past few weeks we have been choreographing. It has felt amazing to move again and to feel like a dancer. I honestly never thought I would start dancing again. Ballet used to be the biggest thing in my life and I was really kind of scarred by how it all ended. I have really grown and gotten to know myself a lot since I stopped and I am grateful for that. I am not defined by ballet anymore and I am ok with that. I think I have other gifts to offer now, but wow it feels good to dance again. I am aching to be in a studio and just stand at the barre and feel everything I used to feel. I hope I will be able to get to the point where I can take class once a week just for me and be satisfied with that (I tend to be an all or nothing type person). It's hard to stay balanced and obviously my life is not just about me anymore, but ya......wish me luck! I am so excited to perform again :)

Well that pretty much sums it up! Now you know what I've been up to. Sorry its been a while since I blogged......I'm just so busy......(Ha! That last sentence was for you Larbar!!! hehehe) Hopefully I will have a fun post coming up soon so stay tuned :)
