flashback friday

well I didn't quite get to this posted on Friday but I figure its Friday in most other parts of the world still so phew, I just made it.
This weeks theme is 'music' (I just learned there are themes) That's me on the left end, back row and I am equal parts sturdy, sun burnt, and smiling for my first year ballet portrait. The back of the photo is carefully labeled (thanks mom) so I know that it was 1986 and I was 4 and a half when this photo was taken. And the dance was set to the song 'How Much is that Doggie in the Window.'

I did not stick with ballet for long, I only did one more year ('London Bridges Falling Down') before I announced to my mother that I didn't want to do anymore dance because I already had enough costumes. Turns out I was just in it for the fashion. It was more important for me to look like a ballerina than actually be one. ha!

hope everyone is having a great weekend. We have parties on top of parties to attend and one is Mayana's (from our knitting circle) baby party. whoot!
