Fabulous Friday's... 5 days late and on a Wednesday!
I have been a bad blogger lately... I feel bad about it too. It isn't that I don't have enough to write about, (I have enough drama and craziness going on in my life to write about 5x a day), or that this blog isn't important to me, (I look so forward to my little 'all about me' sessions), it is just that... well nothing, I don't have a good excuse. So sorry, I promise I will be better!
I am loving blog world! It is taking a little while to get the hang of it and after a quick 15 followers (my mom and closest friends) I found myself in a 'follower fall-off' state of depression. ha - silly I know, but if you don't already or think you know someone who would, send a little follower love my way.... only so I have something to look forward to each day :)
Well, back to my post...
I am totally aware that today is Wednesday. I also am totally aware that this blog is named "Fabulous Friday's." My plan last week was to start a weekly shout-out to something specific on Friday's that is super FABulous in my life. However, Friday came and went and I am just now getting around to it. That's me... take it or leave it!
So this Fri/Wednesday is my first FABULOUS FRIDAY and the shout out goes to: my DIVA COMPETITION TEAM!
As some of you may know my family owns a dance studio. My mom and I spend nearly every waking moment working, thinking, doing cleaning, teaching, rehearsing, (you get the picture)ing for the studio. Which of course, I wouldn't have any other way because I am amazed at the fact that my "job" is to dance around with kids all day and the appropriate dress is sweats. And as a little cherry on the top, I love what I do; how many other 20-somethings can say that about their jobs.
A lot of what consumes my time, energy, and rhinestoning habit is our Diva Competition Team. The DCJ DIVAS are a group of 30 girls ranging in age from 6-18 that competes locally and nationally against other dance studios. Last year our studio was ranked the #1 Dance Studio in Texas and #29 in the Nation thanks in part to their high scores at competition. These girls put in a lot of extra hours and money just to get out there and strut their stuff.
We just finished our second competition of the season this last weekend and our girls walked away with extremely high marks both times they competed. This weekend alone we took 7 of the top 10 overall spots in junior solos! During our first showing of the year we swept the 1st overall spot in EVERY group category, yes, every one!!! We won top Mini Group, Top Junior Group, Top Senior Group and Top Production! Our senior girls competed 4 dances and had 4 dances in the top 10....crazy right... I could go on listing accolades or I could just say how FABULOUS my DCJ DIVAS are and how absolutely proud I am of all they have accomplished already. You are all such a bright life in light in my life and I am so thankful for all of you.

Oh and DIVA LOVE – y’all are truly FABULOUS!
