My Life Should be Illegal

So I was printing off fliers for Tippi Toes when it hit me - my life is so good, it should be illegal!

I have hands down the best job of all time,
I'm married to a wonderful, wonderful man,
we live in a great house with an even greater dog (Miles!!!),
we both have wonderful parents and siblings and friends to surround us - life is good!

Even when things get not so good, things are still good ya know?

That's all :)

9 Lives

So a while back when Alex and some of our friends and I went to Colorado over Christmas break we started talking about if we had "nine lives" what we would be or do in the those lives. I didn't think of nine but here are the ones I picked:

1. Professional dancer: I'm talking like hardcore prima ballerina in New York kind of pro dancer!

2. A world traveler: I would totally just go all over the place and see the world!

3. Have a famous cooking/baking blog: I know, I'm obsessed but I seriously think these ladies are AWESOME!!

4. Famous movie actress: I think it'd be fun to be glamorous :) :)

What would some of your lives be?

I definitely wouldn't change my life one bit. I'm just really love my little family of Alex and Miles and LOVE my job!

In other news I've finally used my crock pot for more than just apple cider for a Christmas party! I've made crock pot chicken taco soup and orange chicken which both turned out delicious! Don't you just love pinterest?! That's where both the recipes came from.

Happy Monday everyone!

Baby Amelia!

Hello Friends!
I know I haven't been on here in forever but the truth is I don't have that much to blog about these days unless you want to hear about my ever-increasing obsession of Tippi Toes or my love of food blogs! And then when I do have something to blog about (like going skiing over Christmas break) I don't have enough pictures for all of you to post to make it interesting!

But are you in luck as I am a new aunt with pictures of my sweet little niece, Amelia! When little Amelia was born she had jaundice and was under one of those little incubators so we couldn't really hold her or take many pictures. It was actually kind of funny though because she looked like she was tanning :)

Well last Friday my very good friend Megan, her cutie patootie Esly and I went down for the afternoon to see little Amelia again and of course give lots of snuggles! Here she is!

 The first time to hold Amelia!

 After a while we wanted her to wake up to play but she was grumpy ;-)

 There are those pretty eyes!

 Me, Esly, Amelia, and Alisa

 Megan, Esly, Amelia, Alisa

 She decided to go back to sleep

 It's okay I'll just snuggle!

 Loved all her faces!

Worst Week of My Life!!!

It's really was. Can I please fill you in?

Monday - I was sick with a 101* fever with chills and hot flashes. I didn't realize I was truly sick (because I'm a perfectionist and I don't get sick) until one of my Tippi Toes teachers told me and I had been teaching all day!!!

Tuesday - I had a run-in with a certain person I know...let's just leave it at's cool whatev, but they did ruin my night

Wednesday - I unfortunately lost a really wonderful (actually fabulous) Tippi Toes teacher :( I hope she comes back to teach with us soon.

Thursday - Or the cherry on top day - I received a letter in the mail from the state saying there was a WARRANT out for MY ARREST!!! Yes people, you heard it right. Long story short, back in October I got pulled over for speeding. I've never gotten a ticket of any kind before and I misunderstood the officer and I thought he was giving me a warning. Well, turns out I was way wrong!!!!!

Friday - I had to go to court to get things settled so I didn't go to JAIL. Luckily a good friend of mine was able to come with me for moral support (thanks, Emily!) and the judge took away all those charges. I just had to pay the initial ticket and court fees which was way better than paying over $600 or ya know hittin' the slammer. However, while I was speaking with him because I was so nervous I word vomited like no man's business and he responds with "do you always talk this much..." Why yes, yes I do ): Glad that's over...

Anyways I am so excited for the weekend and ready for a new week to begin!!!!

Hello all!
I know I know - I never blog these days! Well I have a confession to make... I've become...A WORKAHOLIC!!

Okay so not in the has way where if I had kids I'd choose work over them but I seriously think about Tippi Toes all the time!!! I can't help myself- I'm obsessed! I just love it so much. Its kind of unhealthy! I figure now's as good of time as any to be a workaholic since Alex and I don't have any kiddos yet. He makes fun of me sometimes and really I try to control myself. Like I try not to work onthe weekends or after a certain time at night so I avoid the off-chance that I get burnt-out.

Anyways just had to share. Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of blogging soon :)
