May's Favorite Things

Here are a few of my favorite things from May.



My dance girls.  Last night was our last class of the season.  This pic was taken after a 2 1/2 hour long class! We're missing a few ladies, but I loved teaching this group.  We work hard, but we have a lot of fun as well.



I won an incredible giveaway on Caroline's blog.  I can't tell you how much I love her blog.  She makes me feel like I'm in college again!  She did a Favorite Things giveaway and sent me so many goodies (not pictured are the Dove chocolates that I destroyed before I even took the picture).  She even sent the boys some goodies!  And those TimTams are incrediblleeee.



A few weeks ago, I went to a blog meeting in Charlotte, where we talked about blogging for an entire day (loved it!).  I was able to ride up with Angela, and the 3.5 ride felt like a few minutes because we had so much fun chatting.  I also got to stay with my friend, Jennie the night before the conference.  We are soul sisters, for sure, and I'm so glad we were able to have a girls' night.  At the meeting, I was finally able to meet my blogger friends, Lori and Jenny!  I felt like I knew them both so well before, but so glad I was able to meet them in person.



Noel and I started watching Parks and Rec on Netflix...and LOVE it.  This show is so hilarious, and I love when we get some free time to watch a few episodes.



My 2 favorite Instagram pictures from this month.  I couldn't choose just 1!  The boys are such good friends, just like me and my sibling(s)...and I absolutely love that.  They'll probably never take a yoga class together...but who knows, maybe they will! I've said it before, but I hope they'll always be best friends!

May has been a great month, and tomorrow (June 1) starts another great month with our wedding anniversary!

And now it's your turn to link up.

1.  Link to your actual Favorite Things post.

2.  If you have an old post you want to use, that's totally fine!!  Just make sure you link back to my blog in some way.  (You can grab a Favorite Things button on the sidebar if you'd like)

3.  Go visit a few other bloggers and say Hi!  (I've met some pretty amazing people through link ups!)

4.  Go back to this giveaway for an extra +10 entry for linking up!

I hope you had a wonderful May!

Your form is flawless! I am so out of practice that I would hate to see what I would look like if I tried a balance pose now.

Do you own a dance studio or just teach at one? I was taking adult classes at the Raleigh School of Ballet. Margot was the teacher and geeze la-weeeezzzzeeeee it was brutal. I was taking 2 classes a week, but I got burnt out fast. It's like okay, at my age I'm not going to be a professional and I know they have that mentality... It's like I'M OLD! I tried a few other schools (Cary Ballet and one in Apex), but they are too easy. There was just no happy medium. Either brutal, brutal with professionals in class with you or too easy. Never won that battle. lol

Are Tim Tams not the most incredible thing you've ever had?! We brought some back from Australia and I am literally hoarding them because I don't want them to disappear.
