i'll miss them...

I've been packing! Today Austin and I really made a dent in things. Though now I realize I still have some things to get in order for Arts Adventure that starts on Monday (I'm teaching dance)!

In addition to packing, I had my last day of work... I'll miss my kiddos!
These were 2 of my favorite kids :)
My friend from work, Kristen, gave me this for our new place in Texas:
Austin and I made some yummy foods:
strawberry salad (via Erin)
panera-style mac & cheese
kineret challah bread
delicious berry cobbler (also via Erin)
Dan is quite a beggar :)
Met up with Kristen for cupcakes:
Met up with AKat (Aaron & Katie) to try Cheever's... yum!
Traveled to Texas with mom to check on the house, do some things at TWU, buy this new desk, visit the aquarium, and go to the Texas Discovery Gardens. Of course we also made a stop at Anthropologie!
I've also been rehearsing with the company for the Oklahoma Contemporary Dance Festival. (Aug 5 & 6... don't miss it!) We are re-setting one of my favorite pieces, "Belonging", choreographed by Amy Querin.
What've you been up to!?

3 weeks from today...

my husband and I will be Texans...
I'm excited for school and new opportunities for Austin
but I am not thrilled about the Texas part.
We did have made some cute moving announcements.
These were some ideas:

We finally decided we liked these:
If I've got your addy - look for it in your mailbox :)

uncomplicated...

you might think sometimes that I try to complicate things for myself.
I'm darn good at it.

found this post via bellamumma... much needed for me today.
maybe it'll do the same for you!

change is coming...

And I'm not exactly sure what this change is going to bring.
But I think it is going to be some good change!
Tomorrow is my last day of work at the daycare I've worked at for a year and a half... it is a little sad to be leaving lots of the kids I love and friends I have.
The pets don't seem to know anything is going on :)
To relax the other night I made some hot fudge,
recipe by my mom's mom:
It was delicious,
though I did not let the sugar dissolve as completely as I should have so the texture isn't as smooth as it should be.
melt 4 squares of baking chocolate and 4 tablespoons of butter over low heat.
stir in 1 1/3 cup sugar and 1 cup evaporated milk.
continue to cook over low heat until sugar dissolves and sauce thickens.
remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla.
makes around 2 1/2 cups of hot fudge sauce.
serve with vanilla ice cream.

july whizzing by...

July 10th... seriously!?
My parents weren't kidding when they told me time flies when you get older!

We traveled to Texas recently and found a rental house to move to in August. Its nice to have something taken care of - lots of things are still up in the air.

We visited family in Ponca City for the 4th of July- Ponce loves taking trips:
I have been trying to enjoy my favorites of OKC for the last month we'll be living here (it is quite possible we may never move back...):
(okay... I was only going to get a couple of cupcakes that day, but I'd just had a terrible day at work!)

We went to a Ben Folds concert in Tulsa which was awesome.
Did you know he is 44? I did not know that. I think as I get older I think older people are younger (because secretly I wish I was younger still).

And we spent a nice evening with our friends Erin, Michael, and Amos.
She made some delicious veggie lasagna, strawberry salad, and we brought ice cream. Happy national ice cream month!

Perpetual Motion is back in full swing after a 3 week summer break.
I'm going to miss aerial dance when I move to Texas!
Maybe I can find a place to rig and start aerial classes at TWU :)
These photos are from Rebekah Hampton's new company Fall Dance!
(She used to be in Perpetual Motion with me)

How is your July flying by?

i need dance...

today Austin & I visited the denton, texas area to search for august housing. the search is tough but I hope we make solid plans soon. we found two options today so hopefully one of them will work out (both of which have community pools which I am stoked about!)

while driving by the TWU dance building I got super excited about getting back into a daily dance routine in the fall. with perpetual motion we only meet 2-3 times a week for 2 to 4 hours so its not really the same as a full-time dancer.

all of my excitement about dance got me looking at diy.dancer and then to sophkuller's dance photos. beautiful!
