I love my Mother...She told me to write that...but its still true

Wow! It has been way too long since my last blog and several people have asked me when I am going to update my profile. The answer is RIGHT NOW! Here it is! The past month and a half has been splendid. Here's some things I have done since my last blog

I graduated college...

I threw my cap in the air...
Align Center

I met Santa Claus walking down the street Tucson...

I played in the snow with my fat friends...

I had several tea parties with my Addy Pants...

I played with my little pumpkin head Brooky Poo...

I wore a stupid candy cane/mistletoe one kissed me :(

And the coolest thing I did so far was...I made awesome football player gingerbread man cookies from scratch! Woot!

And now I am just living in Phoenix and working to save up some money so that I can move somewhere awesome and become a famous dancer! Updates to come! Love you all!

The Bittersweet Lasts

These past few weeks have been full of some bittersweet moments for me. My college days are coming to an end and I have experienced some "lasts" that have made it more and more real. I am so excited to graduate and finally be done with school, but these are the moments that I will miss the most.

The last night out with my senior girls
We had a holiday party at Sarah, Alicia, and Moira's! Very typical party for us, just dancing and singing the night away while everyone looks at us like we are special :)

My last jazz class with Michael Williams! I got a little teary eyed in this one! Michael has been a very influential part of my life for the last 3 and a half years and I will miss him so much. He never failed to put a smile on my face every time I saw him. What an amazing man.
My last time doing the Santa dance in Michael's jazz class! "Santa Claus is comin' to TOOOWWWNN!"

My last college dance show, Last Chance to Dance.
Britney and I did a duo that we choreographed in choreography class. Love her.
My love Corey and I before performing our duo that I choreographed.

Me and my favorite junior girls hanging out in the dressing room at Last Chance to Dance. I'm gonna miss my little groupies.

Halmunee (Grandma) piece. I was a little girl who was having a nightmare about growing old. Sweet!

Me and my senior people after my last show.

My AMAZING parents and me after my show. I am so blessed to have them in my life.

My girls came to my show of course. They support me in everything I do :)

Michael and I after the show. Really, I'm gonna miss him the most I think.

Susan and me being the divas that we are!

And finally, the last end of the year party. Having a wonderful time with my college family. Love these people!

The seniors. Best U of A dance class ever!

I am so glad to have had the opportunity to spend the past few years here at U of A. I have learned so much and made so many new friends that will be a part of my life forever. I can't wait for the next chapter of my life but I there is no doubt that I will ever forget my experiences here. Thank you to everybody who supported me all these years and made it all so enjoyable and successful.

Green Bean Casserole

So my Thanksgiving break was so good as always. Football, food, and family are a perfect combination!
Started out the day on Thursday playing some football with my friends from the singles ward.

My team won of course, and I was a HUGE contributor to our success. I think my handstands and cartwheels in the corner really helped out :)

I came home from playing football to find my dad watching the Green Bay/Detroit game like this...he's a goofball
Evan and his beautiful girls

Aleigh and her soon to be new family :)Alex, Momo, Evan, Tiffany, Brooklynn ready for some TURKEY
Mama, Anjuli, Aleigh and Chris ready for some GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

Post dinner rockband extravaganza
Evan's new puppy (Kage) was most very sleepy from the day's festivities
So was Brooky Poo
Bubble baths in Momo's jacuzzi bathtub are the best!
Ready for our family run on Black Friday...needed to burn some of that green bean casserole off!
I am so grateful for my family and the relationship I have with them. My family members are my best friends and I love every moment I get to spend with them. I am such a lucky girl and have been so blessed with such amazing people in my life. :)

It's becoming more REAL!

So this weekend was my last official "faculty" show of my college career! I do have a few shows left but those are student choreography shows. I performed my last Michael Williams dance ever and frankly, I am a little sad. I have enjoyed performing and dancing for the UA dance ensemble for the past 3 and a half years so much and I am so grateful for the opportunities that this program has given me. Here are some pictures of my cast and with my some of my favorite people!

Thump It w/ a TRUMPET cast (notice the sparkle hands)

The formation that my teacher affectionately called "Fantasy Port de bra"
Me and my favorite Toe Tapper :)

My number one "dance daddy" Thanks for everything MW!

Picacho Peak has NOTHING on us!

This past Wednesday was Veteran's day so us college students had a day off from our normal schedules and we didn't have to go to school. Katie, Ferenc and I planned a trip to hike Picacho Peak and even though we invited other people, it just ended being us three. Not out of the norm for us. We hiked the HARD trail and dominated the trail! There were parts of the trail that we were literally climbing STRAIGHT up the rocks and pulling ourselves up with the cables that were set there! We were pretty amazing if I do say so myself!

The peak=the goal

Katie's camelback wasn't working...Ferenc fixed it :)
Takin' a little break
Ferenc is glowing because he is Jesus' brother

Over the saddle, now it gets hard

Katie scaling a big deal

Mission accomplished...ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP
After we made it to the top, I fell off the edge RIP me
