Recital week is always hectic. Last year and this year, a little more chaotic than usual because of adjustments made due to covid. Pictures were only allowed for individuals and only by appointment. No group photos were taken because of occupancy limits in the studio. That also meant that their usual set up of a… Continue reading Pictures, Recital, Dance!
Almost everyone in this house will have gotten their first shot by the end of the week and I'm SO relieved! MC got his first on Friday though the university. BG has an appointment for Monday for her first and I go on Tuesday for my one and only. Hubby has an event at work… Continue reading Fauci Ouchie Time and Recital Season
I got them finished and they turned out really pretty. I had done the ribbon inserts last night, so all I had to do today was put them together. There are small things I'm not thrilled with, but I was sort of limited by what I was able to get. Working with the large ball… Continue reading Recital Bouquets – 2019!
Well, it's almost showtime. I have to do recital bouquets first, which is what is on my to do list for the day. I don't think I've ever had such a hard time finding flowers for a project.

It is officially recital weekend and I'm in crazy mode. Yesterday was all about running around and getting some last minute things taken care of (why it takes until last minute before she realizes she needs some of these kinda important things is beyond me). Today won't be much better because I, again, managed to… Continue reading Crazy Mode
This is one of my favorite times of year. Dance costume/picture/recital time! It is crazy busy and hectic this time of year, but it is one of the times I get to see BG really shine. I adore the studio she dances at for so many, many reasons. Their lack of competition, their encouragement for… Continue reading Dance Crazy
