Summer is over

I can't believe how fast summer flew by. I tried stretching it out as far as I could, but being that our first day of school is monday there is no more denying it: Summer is over! Some pretty amazing things happened this summer. Firstly, my summer job at the theatre! Singing and dancing pretty much sums up my job description. This summer I got to play "Winifred" in "Once Upon a Mattress." That entailed jumping off mattresses, hypnotizing princesses and very Big red hair! In "The Drowsy Chaperone" I played Kitty. Just Kitty. She was a ditzy chorus girl with a really squeaky voice who wore a fox around her shoulders. (Someday I will wear a fox for real, that was so fun.)Lastly in the "Marvelous Wonderettes" I played "Suzy" the sweetie. That show was a blast because it was all girls. Serious sisterhood. And not to mention I got to be pregnant in the second act. I love to do theatre simply because it brings me joy. I love to sing. I love to dance. I love to make peolpe laugh. And I love to... dress up!

Now surprisingly, summer didn't just consist of theatre. 
This summer I....

Performed in the dance Recital
Did the Waterton 2 Glacier relay 
(Mine and Tim's first race together yay!)
Cheered my siblings on at dance competition
Helped rid my two familiies of lice (PAINFUL)
Completed my first triathlon 
Organized and ran a dance camp with Michelle and Chelan
Went to a toga party 
Discovered that I have faint, yet exsistant freckles
Got eyelash extensions (Best investment of my life)
Wake boarded for the first time
Saw the musical "9 to 5"
Went to an Arcade 
Played at a trampoline park
Suntanned at Lake Powell

Now just to elaborate on that last one... Lake Powell was a BLAST! We went with Tim's family. We wakeboarder, water-wieneid, suntanned, read books, played cards, went swimming and relaxed. It was thanks to that trip that I felt rested and ready for school! So here I am back in Hawaii and ready to boot. After such an amazing summer I can't wait to see what adventures the school year brings.

My cute swimsuit I bought just for Powell.

Thankfully the care instructions 
didn't prove to be true...

Ahhhh the beauty of the earth.

work, sleep, repeat.

It's summer time. Summer time is blogging time, so hopefully this isn't another failed attempt at keeping record of life's happenings. 

Dance Recital: Me, Michelle, Chelan and Tessa all performed in Jodi's Dance Academy's Year end recital. We put our number together in a week hoping to help advertise for our upcoming dance camp. It was a BLAST! We did it to the song "hero" from the new footloose movie. I love dancing. Especially with such wonderful girls.

Work: This summer I am working at the carriage house theatre! It is so glorious. I have missed it so much. I don't think there is another job out there that you could hire me for twelve plus hours a day. All the shows this year are extremely funny as well; i've been seconds away from peeing my pants every rehearsal.

Marriage: Tim is the greatest man of all time. The end. 

Family: The following picture is post family tetherball tournament. My mom kicked everyone's bum. I apparently am not very good at tether ball. But we all could have guessed that.

Happy Summertime!

For Him:

Oh my heart. 
I love Valentines day! 
The month of love is my favourite. 
Tim is my favourite.
Oh my heart
I love Tim!

Some of todays events & acts of love:

1. Love Potion: This was part of "the fourteen days of Valentines" that I did for him. (As are numbers 2 & 3). Dr. Pepper no doubt.

2. Lindors: his favourite chocolates. 

3. Jessie Pez: With the accompanying note "Howdy partner! How bout you give me a shot at being your valentine!" Cheesy never fails to impress. 

4. Sign of Love: As I walked out of the house to go to choir, this dove was sitting outside our door. We had just been expressing our love for each other. Coincidence? No way in heck. (And no Tim, I refuse to believe it was a pigeon).

5. Tim's valentines present! See below.

6. Kisses. Lots and lots of those.

7. Part of number five, a mug from his favourite company filled with goodies.

8. Valentines day brunch! Complete with berries, coconut syrup, icing sugar and whipped cream. 

My valentine looking ever so handsome!
This is his present - a shirt he'd been eyeing at ugmonk.

Happy Love day everyone!
