Dance is Done… Very Sad!

Sniff sniff, tear tear, dance is over now… So sad! Yesterday’s dance show was a huge success, not to brag, but it usually is.
Our piece, totally epic! The audience absolutely loved our piece. It was quite rewarding to see how much people enjoyed it!
Quoting from a song I absolutely love, you can’t run when you’re holding suitcases… Except, in this case, we absolutely did!
I can’t wait until the DVD for the show to come out! I actually want to see myself perform. We do have pictures, however, but its not the same.

Alright, done blogging for now

Monday’s Thoughts and Rambles

So, as I am sitting here reading, The Fault and our Stars, and decided to blog. Waiting for it to be around 9am, or so. Going to the mall today, and hanging out with a friend of mine! I’m helping my friend find something. Plus, waiting for an email from one of the dancers in the dance group I am in.

I also have dance rehearsal at the theatre that I’m performing in this Friday. So, I’m just patiently waiting, so I can get out of the house. Just ate breakfast, and I’m wondering what else to do until 9am. No idea!

Anyway, I think I am done writing for now!! πŸ˜€

The Fault in our Stars – Comes Out in 16 Days!!!

Yes, I thought I’d write about the movie that is coming out June 6th to theaters. The Fault in Our Stars is a novel, written by, John Green. It’s a, tear your heart out, have someone stomp on it, then put it back where it belongs kinda novel. Β If you aren’t into sappy love stories, or tear jerkers, then this book, and I guarantee you move, won’t be right for you.

I, however, have read this novel about four times thus far. So, I was thrilled Β to find out that a movie was being made from this book. Below I will link you to the awesome, tear jerker, stay at the edge of your seat, official movie trailer. I seriously can’t wait!!!

Here is the official extended trailer!

Ok, that is all for now!!

Enjoy!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Sunny Day… Yet, I Feel Like Baking!

Hello all!

I think the title speaks for itself… it’s sunny where I live presently, and quite a beautiful day outside. I, however, apparently want to be stuck inside, baking. I guess I will blame the fact I posted an abundance of recipes earlier. It, suddenly struck the baker chord in me. Something like that, anyway.

There’s one problem… at least momentarily… I don’t have eggs.

I called my neighbour to see if they had any I could use. I only needed two eggs, so I called them and asked. I am waiting for them to get back to me… hopefully soonishly, as I want to bake before my energy deflates.

Currently I have three bananas taken out of the freezer, and thawing out… now to wait on the only ingredient I don’t have… eggs!

Well, that’s all for now!

I will blog again soon!!! πŸ˜€
