NY bound

Just got the news that Max will be moving to New York in January to start his training at JKO, American Ballet Theatre’s year round training school. I’m so proud of him. I know this is going to be a hard step for him and his family, but I know that its only the beginning of great things to come. He is so unbelievably talented and deserves this so much. Proud of you babe. I love you!


For my girls,

I’ve talked to a few of my girlfriends lately who’ve been down in the dumps. I’ve tried to lend comforting words… Maybe I have, but I’ve felt like I could never think of the right thing to say. Well thanks to Audrey, I’ve found the words. So girls, listen up…

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”  — Audrey Hepburn

Things I’m Thinking

-1 day till the Hursts are back!

-1 week till Max comes home!

-The rain in Studio A will NEVER get old.

-I’m loving my instant queue netflix.

-Why can’t they make movies like Cover Girl anymore? Rita Hayworth is just heavenly and Gene Kelly… my gosh… words cannot express his brilliance and charisma.

-Avery Ballard rocks my socks. I’m so proud of her in Singin in the Rain. She’s really stepping up to the plate and is gonna steal the show hands down.

-I have 4476 songs on my itunes. That’s 10 days worth of music. Crazy!

-I’m 15 albums away from 200 albums on facebook. I need to hit it into high gear with that album.

-After watching episode after episode of Cake Boss, I have a serious craving for cannolis.

-I love all my costumes for SITR. Thanks mommy!

-I love the fact that I get to see my best friend, Maggie, everyday. I love her!

-I want to stuff Ashley Van Pelt in my pocket and pull her out whenever I need her. She is my current favorite person.

-Come see Singin in the Rain!!!


Dancing in the Rain

When I say that I live at RAFA, I mean it. the other day I was there till 1:30am. “Why?” you may ask. I was there to help participate in the try out version of the rain that will be seen in Studio A for RAFA’s production of Singin in the Rain. Even though it took forever we made it work. And let me tell you, it was magical!! I truly cannot wait for people to see it. So with that being said, come see Singin in the Rain. We open Thursday, July 29th and run through Sunday, August 1st.

She’s Still Got It

Yesterday morning i took some pictures of my beautiful friend, Abby. We had so much fun and I love what we came up with. What I love about abby when taking photos, besides that she’s just beautiful, is that she’s filled with creativity and she knows what things I look for in a photo. We make  a good team. Here are 4 of my faves! Happy Sunday!

New Favorite Photos

I’ve recently become obsessed with a photographer named, Nicole Hill. I’ve been browsing through her blog lately and can’t get over how much I love her work. She is in France right now with fellow Rockstar, Taza, taking lots of lovely pictures! I can’t wait to see the rest of them. Here are three of my favorite little kid pictures of hers.

Make sure to check out her website, http://www.nicolephoto.com, and her blog, http://www.nicolehill.blogspot.com!
