Lately...

Sorry to my fellow readers who have felt neglected, ha ha, right...
Anyways, I have been SO busy with my internship, school and just life! Here is what we have been up too...

One day I decided to be all Martha Stewart and get really crafty. I go this cute idea off the internet and blog hopping one day. I made my own cute cork boards! Anyone who knows me knows that this is totally not something that I do on a regular basis, but it really was fun and I am going to try and be more crafty, but we'll see.

Starting my project...

The finished project all hung (by ME!) and ready to be used!

The next fun thing that happened was Angie's Dance Academy Year End Show! My girls did So good and I was very impressed with how the show turned out! My favorite class is my littlest girls. They are age 5-7 and are SO fun! Along with my craftiness- I made the flowers in their hair!

This is me and Shantelle. Shantelle is my Wednesday private lesson class who I have really grown to love! She is SO sweet and actually reminds myself of me a lot of the time. She went on point this year and has done such a good job!

This is Sky and Alison! Sky is adorable and has improved SO much this year and Alison has such natural talent it amazes me. She has PERFECT natural turn out, is SO flexible, can count and hear music beautifully and has perfect arms and everything! I adore these two. Oh, and Sky told me she loves big furry spiders!!! YIKES!

Another cute picture of my little ballet class...
So for Memorial Day, you guessed it, Andrew had to work! I guess it was ok because he came home with this...


He got a SMOKIN' deal on it, so he "had" to get it. I was like, "Um, ok..."Then, while we were watching one of the many basketballs games on Monday night he says, "Babe, I bet I can have this set up in 10 minutes... I bet it's really easy... HELP ME MOVE THE COFFEE TABLE..." I thought he was kidding. I was like, "Babe, this is not going to fit in here, blah blah blah..." But he was determined that it would. So, I find myself helping him move the coffee table and start setting everything up.
After starting to set it up I thought that this was SO fun! I love camping and thought it'd be fun to camp in out living room! So, after we got it set up...


We watched a movie in it! I begged Andrew to sleep in it, but he said the most he'd do was watch a movie unless I was going to bring our pillow top downstairs into the tent... I decided a movie would be fine.


It really was SO much fun and I am SO grateful that we didn't have any visitors because they would have really thought we were nuts if they came over and we were watching a movie in a tent IN OUR OWN HOME... It was fun and something that I think our kids will love one day!

Thanks for reading!

How fun! Tell Andrew he needs to move the mattress downstairs so you can have a camp-out! :) Kip surprised me one night with our mattress in our living room! It was so fun! We didn't have the tent, but it was still an adventure.

Also, your dream... hilarious! I'm not baby hungry yet! :)

Holy cow Ali, who says you're not crafty!? All of your creations are awesome. Next time you find a fun craft to make, let me know so that i can come over and make one too. I am so uncreative it's incredible, so I need a little extra help.

Your girls looks so cute. I'm sure you love going to work just so you can see the funny things they do.
