done and done.

the season has come to a close.
{this phrase might be foreign to those outside of the ballet word}
i am officially as free as a bird.
my afternoons and evenings won't consist of five hour rehearsals.
{at least for a few months}
it's time to celebrate.

here are the first five things on my "to do" list now that dance is over:
1. hit the spa, duh.
as in get a pedicure to remove my calluses and cover my bruised toenails,
and paint my fingernails a funky-bright color.
{i've been dying to do these both for a couple of weeks now}
2. spend my evenings with lovebird.
this never happens, and i mean never.
i plan on cooking lots of dinners so we can eat 
at a normal hour instead of at 10:00.
cuddle on the couch, watch movies and eat gelato.
and get planning our little trip that is coming up oh-so-soon. 
3. soak up some vitamin d.
simply sit by our pool, relax, drink lemonade and read a book not related to school.
all, of course, while getting a healthy dose of the sun.
i repeat: healthy.
{i've decided getting a nice golden tan is officially lame and stupid.}
4. study for finals.
i realize this isn't so fun...
however, i'm excited to see what school is like without having to stress
and juggle homework and studying around 40 hours of dance each week. 
{not to mention, teaching piano and my other little job.}
5. clean our little home.
you'd think a tornado had come and gone through our little place.
{rather a tornado of busyness, school, stress and lack of extra time.} 
i'm a clean freak... and it's driving me crazy.
but now, with a little spare time i've already fantasized about being cinderella.
let's face it: i enjoy cleaning.
and i enjoy nothing more than the sight of a clean home.

well, there you have it.
there's my recipe to a celebration at the moment.
i'm looking forward to catching up on all the fun things
that i've missed on your lovely blogs while i've been busy performing.
{i'll post pictures of the show soon- i promise}
xoxo
