Rebekah, Julianne and I attended for our fourth time yesterday morning. And I cried...literally cried at the sheer beauty of it all.

I think we counted 14 girls from our neighborhood participating in the ballet. It was fun to try and pick them out under all their costumes and heavy make-up. I also paid close attention to the littlest ballerinas this time. Lilian just started taking ballet from this same ballet academy a few months ago...which means that in another couple years, we might be watching her up on that stage.
and ended with this:
"Breaking Dawn" is the epitome of a "chick flick." Which means that it makes one heck of a great Girls Night Out. We had dinner first, at The California Pizza Kitchen...gabbing and eating (mostly healthily because I live in a very health conscious neighborhood...lots of salads on that table.) We were joined by even more friends at the movie, taking up almost a whole row up near the top of the theater. Healthy eating went out the window by the time we hit movie go time, with most of us holding buckets of popcorn in our laps and sodas in the cup holders. Cheesy movie...yes. As with most cases like this, I prefer the books over the movies. But we relished that cheese and had ourselves quite the fun evening.
Brandi and I both wore shirts sharing our team affiliation...
Silly? Of course.
Feeling a little like 16 year old in a 38 year old body? Yep.
Tons of fun all the same? Definitely!!
