//it was the freakin’-weekend

2 May

“…and i had me some fun.” -r.kelly

sidenote: [2 weeks?! that’s how long it’s been. as my friends recognized my absence (2 of them) i didn’t realize until this moment how long it had really been. but my term is over, i have a couple weeks ’til summer session starts, and hopefully i’ll be back on the wagon- as they say.]

back to the post…

looking back, i had the best weekend i’ve had in a long time. friday, kyle & i finished registering… sort of. we had a delish bite to eat at kenny & zukes. and ended with a wonderful night of friends to celebrate our dear friend kev leaving for norway. because we can’t stand it any longer, kyle and i were planning to move up the wedding, but now we can’t since we must wait for kevin’s return 😉

saturday most of my dreams came true. i don’t mean most as in quantity of dreams, but most like percentage of my dreaming bank. ballet takes up 85 percent of that lot and i finally started ballet. i have always appreciated (which means getting emotional, on the verge of tears/or letting them fly, while i watch) the art of ballet. not only is it beautifully graceful-i realize that sounds redundant-but it is also incredibly difficult, taking a lifetime to perfect, and the amount of discipline and energy that goes into a relevé, let alone the final product, is overwhelming whenever i get to watch a performance. so there i was, in my 3rd ballet experience wide-eyed and full of hope. everyone in the class was incredibly nice. my teacher had to correct me about every ten minutes (hands, high neck, pointed toes, hips forward, elbows up, thumbs down, shoulders back, taller, taller, taller) it was the hardest thing i’ve ever done, but loved every second of it.

followed by the beginning process of invitation making!!! one of my favorite people in the world, rachel k. silva, designed an amazing invitation that will be screen printed almost 200 times. after boycotting walmart for the past 23 years raquel said we needed to go there to get some supplies. i will spare you the details of our trip and just say this: you know you’re at walmart when… you ask for help, they don’t know and walk away; get a top shelf bottle of wine for $8.47; get scorned and ridiculed for not wanting a bag at checkout. after almost flooding the basement, building a workshop, vulnerably singing with rach and alyssa, and all the work was done we could do we went to celebrate the birthday of my wonderful trainer: emily johnson. at floyd’s coffee shop in old town, super cute; great food by chef from andina’s, super delicious.
