The photographer I interned for a couple summers ago also owns a dance studio. I was asked to be the official photographer for their spring recital and I loved every second! There is something magical about the the back stage flurry that comes right before a performance, not to mention the sheer beauty of the recital itself. I have to admit I was completely in awe of the dancers' grace. Maybe they could give me some tips for not tripping over nothing when I walk?
The classroom I volunteer in hatched chicken eggs for their lifecycle unit this spring. When the two chickies hatched, I got to babysit them for a few nights. The little squeaking sounds they make are beyond adorable! After a day or so, they even learned to recognize my voice and perch on my finger! (Heart = Melting) I am now convinced that I stand in need of a pet chicken. Do you think the housing department will let one stay in my dorm room?
3. GREEK FOOD
My family took a leap of faith and attended our local Greek festival a few weeks ago. I have no idea what I was eating, but it was Ah. Maz. Ing. I am seriously mourning the fact that this glorious fiesta only happens once a year. I need more baklava. (Which, by the way, would be a delicious ice cream flavor. Ben & Jerry's, can you hear me?)
4. UCHTDORF QUOTE
This quote has been on my mind a lot lately. It's amazing how our small daily decisions can have such a profound impact on the course of our lives.
Remember when I blogged about that fantastic magazine for Mormon teens a few months ago? (In case you're forgetful like me and don't, here's the link.) Well, The Parable of the Porta-Potty was published in the June issue! I am over the moon excited about it! (Like more excited than the cow who jumped over the moon and made the little dog laugh while the dish ran away with the spoon. That excited.) #namethatnurseryrhyme I'm on Pg. 35 if you want to check it out. (And you should, because this magazine is seriously the best. I'm in love with all the modest fashion tips, gorgeous photography, and inspirational articles!) The best part is, if you're interested you can get a killer deal subscribing through their Kickstarter campaign right now! Yay for great reads at great prices!
I know I usually only do 5 things, but I just can't help it. Chemistry Cat hits my funny bone.
