March is here!

Here we are, 2 full weeks into my Spring session at Tiny Toes and I finally have some time to sit down and write!  I have been busy with new kiddos, the Brambleton ribbon run (coming up this weekend), recital costumes and managing my big kids and teenagers and prepping them for competition.  Such is the life of a dance teacher:)
This session has been the biggest and best yet!  I have 85 students enrolled and more and more inquiries each day for our next session!  Love to see all the smiling faces each and every day - I really do have the best job in the world!  Kayden has been taking some of my classes and will be in our recital this year on June 19th!  Here's the costume for her class:

I have been running a lot for the Brambleton Ribbon Run 5k that is this weekend!  It's supposed to be Sunny and 69 degrees on race day!  Perfect for a nice run and to spend some time outdoors!  Tiny Toes and True Athlete Performance will be sponsoring a moonbounce for all the kiddos too!  Fun for the whole family! I have been running a lot more lately and hope to beat my last 5k time.  I am actually starting to enjoy running (with the help of my iPhone)!

Just finished ordering all recital costumes today.  What a job it is - I have SO MUCH respect for those that have an entire dance school to order for! Whew! I was pooped after organizing and ordering 45 costumes!  Picture Day is this Sunday too, for our TTDA Yearbook.  More smiling faces this weekend!

I signed Kayden up for Gymnastics classes again!  They start this Friday at JW Tumbles in Ashburn.  She really has enjoyed the last few times we went.  She's not really into the "structured" circle time just yet, but I think that will get better as she gets a little older.  She just wants to run around and play on the equipment as soon as she sees it!  Will post more pictures as we have them from class!

I have been getting some good business expansion vibes lately and will post more as soon as info is official!  On another note, I am happy to announce that my South Riding location will be transforming an entire dance room into a Princess Palace!  All of my ballerinas will be SO happy to be whisked away into a magical kingdom to twirl and tap until their hearts are content! This should hopefully be done by the summer time.

Kris and I had a date night last week with some friends and tried out Caliente Mex-Sea Restaurant.....delicious food!  We all agree that it will be our summer hangout spot.....indoor/outdoor bar and seating, great selection of food and drinks, and close (even walkable) location!  a Winner!!

We are trying to plan our summer vacation this year.  So far, I think we've narrowed it down to the last week in June and I think the Outer Banks. Checking out some houses this week. We have a trip to Boston planned at the end of the summer with some friends too.  Looking forward to getting back up there and visiting with Kris' buddies!

So, that's our life in a nutshell.  Emphasis on the nut.  I feel like we're both going a million miles an hour but in the bestest way possible! 

That's it for now:)
