True Bieber Fever

I don't think I've ever mentioned on the blog that my sports-loving son also takes a boys hip hop dance class on Fridays at Dance Theatre South in Durham.

One of his friends was going to take the class and his mom was willing to pick Walker up and take him too, so I said, sure, why not? Something different for him to do on Fridays instead of hanging out in after school.

It's actually become one of the things he looks forward to the most on Fridays. Even better, they are doing a Justin Bieber remix for their recital number, and Walker loves Justin Bieber (did I mention I have the fever too after seeing the movie?). All the more reason to have the perfect costumes of purple hoodies and NY Yankee caps right?

Mike is horrified that his son is taking dance class, but I assured him that 1) Walker will not be dressing like this in public (although he's worn the hat out a couple of times because he likes it so much) 2) Athletes take dance classes for balance (don't they?) and 3) It helps with coordination.

Check out the attitude. Justin Bieber, you've got some competition coming for ya.


  1. And, not to mention that someday he'll be a husband who might have a bit a rythmn.! And, that is priceless! I wish my husband enjoyed dancing more.

  2. This. Is. Awesome.

    I have a feeling he will despise those photos one day. Which makes this even more awesome!

  3. I would love for my children to take dance classes, or get involved any way possible! I love the attitude those boys are giving! :) It's great!

  6. Lynn Swann, NFL Hall of Fame-er, took ballet! Your husband has nothing to worry about with a couple of hip hop classes. How fun!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
