in sickness and sunshine


I have been seriously sick with what I am confident was the black plague. My Easter was not spent wearing a cute little sundress, immaculately decorating eggs with so much detail they could easily be swapped with those on Pinterest. I didn't eat the Hungarian Dobos Torte that my aunt made and posted all over Facebook so I could look at it while I was sitting by the toilet. I was a heathen and didn't go to church. However, that might have been for the better because our church had a bunch of baptisms and I cry uncontrollably at baptisms.

Instead I've been consuming cough drops and adivil, every vitamin under the sun, and so much water that I pee every hour. It's exhausting peeing this much. 

But, on a less tmi topic, the yellow thing in the sky came out?!?! 
'what?' you gasp!
It took us Washingtonians a moment to remember what it was because...well...it's been a while. However, I quickly remembered and grabbed my tank-top and sunglasses before heading to my favorite local smoothie shop with the windows down. It may or may not have been 59 degrees. I explained I had been sick and needed something with lots of good vitamins pronto, and the lady gave me a cucumber grapefruit smoothie. Sound weird, but it was so yummy and lite. 

Now you want to try a cucumber and grapefruit smoothie. Your welcome.

Spending the past days (almost week) suffering with the black plague, I've contemplated life. 
You know. 
Laying in bed at 4:17am wondering why you never appreciated being able to breathe through your nostrils.  
Getting in a nice hot bath with a fever and then getting the chills. 
Asking what you did to deserve this near death experience.
 (okay, maybe it was just the flu but that is beside the point...)  

Over and over the past week, the phrase 
it was my sin that held Him there 
has been running, running, running through my head.

The miracle, the good news, the reason for my hope and life, was accomplished. 
                              His dying breath has brought me life. 
I live in the new life I have been given
                              I know that it is finished. 

Friends, let's choose to live together in the confidence knowing that it is finished. 
The work has been done.
Our ransom has been paid. 
There is nothing we can do be loved more then we are right now.

In sickness and sunshine, it is finished.

week 21- Sharing the Joy




Last weekend was my performance; the long awaited, exhaustedly rehearsed, event of the semester. The show was titled A Tribute to Broadway, and each piece was biased off of a Broadway play or musical. I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves :-)


These were from The Lion King, featured lots of African movement. I had a sinus infection and fever, so I was mostly breathing out of my mouth :-)




Ballet was Into The Woods, which was a ton of fun. 

 (the Into the Woods director/one of my ballet teachers)




Tap was Sing, Sing, Sing, from Fosse.

takin a sick day

Well. Yesterday was when I was going to post my 52 Weeks of Ballet post, but it was my birthday, so things got a little crazy. And then, last night I was up for two/three hours throwing up. Not fun.
It seriously took me a hour in the bathroom this morning because I have no energy.


  That being said, I have absolutely no energy to take pictures and give you a make-up tutorial. Sorry guys. So I sit here in front of my computer screen, yoga pants, tea and all. Blhh.


 So yep. This is my incredibly cheerful Saturday morning post. I hope your Saturday started out better then mine!
