dance recital

Tallulah has been taking ballet at the YMCA this fall.  Last Saturday they had a small recital at the mall.  Her class danced to Halloween is Coming (sorry, I could not find a good link to the song).  They were pretty cute. Here are a few pics for your enjoyment...

This experience has been so different (and much better for the current craziness of life) from our studio dance class experiences of the past.  Very laid back, inexpensive and low key.  Plus I get to work out while Lulu is in class! (before  we started ballet and homeschool PE at the Y I was finding it hard to squeeze in a work out even a couple days a week- now we are there 3 afternoons and I can finally get in my workout guilt free!)

P.S.  I am really trying to get back here more regularly, but I have been struggling to juggle everything life has been sending our way these past two months!  I am hoping and praying that things are slowing down a bit... This week has been the closest thing to a "normal" week we've had since we stated school in September!

i have a confession to make...

Not too long ago I blogged about how I knew Pinterest was all the rage, but I was happy with my little tumblr page to hold all my links to various projects and ideas.  Then shortly after that post a friend blogged about how she had finally succumbed to the Pinterest rage because of the organizational dream that it was.  She had me at organization(al).  So, I found my way over to Pinterest... just to check out her claims, and was sucked in immediately.

So without further ado... here is my Pinterest page

I saw a pin the other day and thought maybe I would share a few things that I have recently pinned and made.

First up, I made this delicious lemon peel-apart bread yesterday.  Oh so yummy!

I also made this pizza style monkey bread.  One recipe was not enough to feed our whole family so I  served the leftover garlic butter over pasta.  I will definitely make this again.
