craziest week of my life...

So, I pretty much fell off the face of the earth again. Sorry. I have had an extremely hard week with school and drama at the dance studio, so I just didn't even have time to breathe. However, I am back and better than ever, to tell you all about the best thing EVER! My sister and I have opened up an online boutique call The Thankful Leaves Boutique!!! It is the best boutique ever! We sell beautiful hats, and baby booties that are to die for, and amazing rings that are so unique you wont even be able to stand it. So.....come check it out. Here is the website: And if you have any questions about the shop just comment on this post!

And I also would like to point out that it is snowing outside and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!!! Winter is just the best season and that's that. I don't really think there is anything I don't like about winter, I guess besides the bad weather conditions that cause accidents. But other than that it is the best. It is just soooo BEAUTIFUL!!!

How lucky I am...

Sooo... I guess I fell off the face of the earth for a little while. Sorry.
So today I was having a really hard time trying to find something to be thankful for because my day was really not going well. I can't stand when people are judgmental. I also can't stand when people are mad at me so i was just very upset today to find that people were mad at me because i can't change me schedule, that just didn't seen fair to me.
However there really are things for me to be thankful for, and I was reminded of this by my sister who sent me an amazing email telling me 10 things that should make me feel happy again. They are as follows:

8) having an awesome sister

A fun evening in store...

Today is going by quite slow, which is how all Tuesdays and Thursdays go. However I am very excited for this evening for a few different reasons. The first reason I am excited is because I get to teach dance tonight, which I feel is a blessing from above! However I am also going to try to make homemade Gummi Bears, or other shapes that I decide on! My sister sent me the recipe its awesome! Check it out! I just love to try new and exciting recipes!

And as usual my daily thanks!
9.) I am thankful for the opportunity to try new and exciting things!

I love family

So I had a long weekend.
My boyfriend and I decided that his step dad is only allowed to live in first floor apartments from now on because the second floor just isn't working out.
But as I say its okay because there are so many other things in the world that I can be thankful for that I refuse to dwell on the negative.
So today is a very good day. I am currently talking to the best sister ever and I love when I get to do that so all in all, the day is good! She has stated that she is currently 1/4 of the way through her coffee (or as we call it crack), so I should be expecting some pretty awesome emails and or messages today! Oh how I love what coffee does to me sister!!!

Okay so since I didn't write all this weekend here you go:
6.) I am thankful for a nice home-cooked meal.
7.) I am thankful for the smile that I put on my Nonno's face every time I walk into the room.
8.) I am thankful for how much my family loves me and that it takes me 20 extra minutes to get out of the house because they drag their feet saying goodbye, and how I get messages from my sister saying: "Ummmm I haven't talked to you in the past 24 thats not ok...".

Rainy days...

Its raining...
I can't decide if I am happy about that or not.
I love when it rains because then i can dance in the rain.
However, its not fun to dance in the rain today, its just too cold.
But that is totally ok because I am having a wonderful morning talking to my almost official business partner (as of Nov. 29th) while she tries to not talk too fast because....she had her coffee today...which means that for the next few hours I will get hilarious emails and or phone calls from her with her saying a million questions or statements in a minute! Oh I just love days like today! Tee hee hee

So the fifth day has come...
5.) I am thankful for days after really big exams, that overwhelm a person's entire week, where a person can relax and take a moment to breathe.

What are you thankful for?

I am starting this blog to tell the world what I am thankful for.
For the month of November my entire family takes this time each day to write down what they are thankful for on a piece of paper (usually shaped like a leaf!). Then when thanks giving comes around we all sit around that table together and one at a time take turns reading each one, just by picking the leaves out of the container. This is how I want to live me life. I want everyone to know how thankful I am for the things that are so wonderful in life.

So here is where I will begin.
Since it is November 4th now I have a few "Thanks" to tell you all.

1.) I am thankful for the amazing people that God surrounds me with each and everyday.
2.) I am thankful for my sister and her absolutely hilarious phone calls while she is at work.
3.) I am thankful for the amazing girls that I teach dance to.
4.) I am thankful for beautiful salubrious days!

There are more to come!
