I'm a little belated at posting this but my beautiful baby sister is officially engaged! Okay, she's not really a baby, she's 23. But she'll always be my baby sister. She & Aaron are getting married on June 9th and I am so very happy for them. I've been demoted to her second favorite person in the world but if it means seeing her this happy everyday I will take it!
"There are two kinds of secrets. The ones we keep from others and the ones we keep from ourselves."
I'm a little bit obsessed with the Post Secret blog. It's updated every Sunday. If you've never read it or heard about it you really should take a peak. It's worth the 5 minutes you will spend looking at it. Post Secret is when you make your own postcard with a secret on it and mail it in. You don't put a name or return address on it. It's a secret that you release from yourself into the world. Some are sad, some funny, some happy, some absolutely heartbreaking.
Every time I read the Post Secret blog I think about what I would write on a postcard to mail in. It's different each week, usually depending on what's been on my mind. But for me the best part about Post Secret is when I read one and say, hey, this person is just like me. It's a connection to another person that I wouldn't have found any other way. And even though I don't know who wrote it or anything about them except this one little secret it's comforting to know that I'm not alone in the world.
When one of your best friends gets married there's little else to do but throw her the most amazing bachelorette party you possibly can! And that's what we did. Sushi, dueling pianos & plenty of dancing were just some of the fabulous things about this night. Love my Stef!
I hate the gym. I said it. In fact, I hate the gym so much that I will come up with any excuse for myself not to go there. I start each day by telling myself that the gym is on the list of things to do today. I usually make it there 3 times a week. 3 of 7 isn't exactly a perfect record.
When I was in high school I had a simple solution to this problem. I was a dancer. Some of you may think that dancing is not "working out" but you would be very wrong. Trust me, it's not something just anyone can do. We worked for hours a day to be amazing. It was well worth it. And dancing was my workout.
After high school came college. While being in college I've always tried to take at least one dance class a semester, mostly because I absolutely love to dance. I'm that weirdo that puts headphones in and dances across campus from one class to the next. I have a very hard time listening to music without moving my body to the beat in some way, even if it's just bopping my head up and down. So of course my stress relief class is dance.
But in the past year I haven't been in dance classes and I have such a hate-hate relationship with the gym that I've felt a major lacking in my life. Thankfully someone out there in the universe felt my pain and decided to help me out a little bit first by inventing the xbox kinect and second by creating the game dance central. It has almost every style of dance imaginable. I can hip hop or I can salsa. I can even do the Soulja Boydance (and I'm amazing at it!) I play this game almost every day for at least half an hour. I dance around my living room every morning and I love every second of it. The dancer in me is so happy! Yes, I still drag my butt to the gym because let's be honest, it's good for me. But even when I don't get there I feel good about myself because I go a little crazy in my own private dance club.
Today my beautiful,amazing,wonderful mommy turned 50! She is truly the most amazing mom in the world. I am so lucky that she is mine. I made her this hat for her birthday present and she absolutely loved it. And I absolutely love her. Thank you for being you mommy. You are the BEST.
