Prom 2013

So I’m finally posting about prom. Which was back in April. Yes, yes, I know, just a tad bit late! Anyway, better late than never. Right?

So my prom was on April 27th 2013. And I had a blast! It was so much fun.

I was so excited to go. Manly because being home schooled I thought I would never go to prom. So this was a big deal for me!

So what was next? Dress shopping of course! I really, really loved my dress. A friend actually found it for me!

Again I had a great time and I’m so thankful that I got to go! Here are some pictures.

OOTD: Turquoise, Black, and White

I love turquoise! Well, that’s a bit of an under statement, its more like…I LOVE TURQUOISE!!!!

I really love the two pops of turquoise, and the way the converse look with the skirt!

My cami is from Target. My cardigan is from Goodwill. My skirt is Wet Seal. My shoes are converse. My purse it LV. My sunglasses are from Target. And my earrings were a gift.

Garden Update

So these garden posts are way behind. Maybe I’ll catch up, then again maybe not. The plants are doing great and I even have a few flowers on some of them but I’ll talk about that in like three updates from now.

So for this update I moved my plants from the seed starter into plastic cups.

Dance Recital This Weekend

So this weekend is our dance recital! We’re so excited! This part of the year is kind of hard because  you’re ready for dance to be over so that you have more time, but, at the same time you don’t want it to be over. Still, I can’t wait for this weekend!

So this is my 5th year, and River and Sky’s 4th. What? How did this happen? I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for 5 years! But I have loved every second of it.

This year I have 4 dances, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, and a little part in Boys Hip Hop. I’m also helping with Tap&Jazz II and I’m performing in there jazz dance.

Sky and River each have 6 dances, 2 Tap dances, 2 Jazz dances, Hip Hop, and Boys Hip Hop. OMG!!

The rest of this week is going to be crazy so I don’t think I will be putting up another post until next week. I hope every ones week is great and ta ta for now 🙂

OOTD: Summer Stripes

I’m loving the weather right now! It’s nice and warm but not too warm!

So here is quick summer time outfit

My bag is LV, and my sandals are from Walmart



And today is my Mommas birthday! So happy birthday Mom! I love you 🙂

Starting My Garden

So I’m posting this really late but I still wanted to write about it.

About a month ago I started my garden. First I planted all of my seeds in a seed starter just to get them started.


So this how my plants lived for a couple of weeks.

And here’s what I planted











Everything is doing great but I think my spinach died. Anyway, soon I will do an update on my garden!

Finally Back!

I can’t tell you how good it feels to be doing my blog again! It’s been about a month now since I last posted. And it was do to some “technical difficulties”. I put that in quotes because we went to fix the “technical difficulties” and turns out, there were no technical difficulties, I just wasn’t doing something right!

So in the time that I’ve been gone some pretty awesome things have happened.

1. I went to prom

2. We had our gymnastics exhibition

3. We had one of our dance recitals

4. I went to the carnival for the first time

5. Went on the Blue Ridge Parkway

I will be doing posts on all of these things.

Currently we are getting ready for our second dance recital. Last week was our last week of classes and this week is rehearsals, and then the show! I’ve had such and amazing time this year, and I’m going to miss my dance family so much over the summer!

As for right now I’m so happy it’s summer, which means…WATER ACTIVITIES! They just finished re-doing our public pool so I cant wait to go there! And there are TONS of other water activities I cant wait to do!

And I FINALLY got my National Geographic Traveler Magazine! I’m so excited and I’m having blast reading them!

So to end this post I wanted to share this quote with you. “~Don’t over think, just let it go~” – Unknown. This quote speaks to me a lot because I tend to over think stuff!
