Disney On Ice was a HIT!


We went to Disney On Ice at the Energy Solutions Arena this afternoon.  It was so fun!  We had seen the 100 Years of Magic show a few years ago and I was so excited when we realized that they had changed it up - so it wasn't the same as it was before!


My daughter loved the princesses of course and she loved the Lion King.  My son is a HUGE Nemo fan so he was super I really liked The Incredibles and the It's a Small World scene.  I think my husband liked watching the girls spin on skates... lol!

We had a BLAST!!!

There is still time to get in on the action!  You can find times & ticket info HERE!

The Greatest Show on Earth! It really was!


 


I took my kids and my son's friend to the Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus tonight.  It was so fun! I hadn't been to the circus since I was a kid and I was amazed tonight!  I loved the Elephants - actually all the animals.  My son & his friend loved the motorcycles. And my daughter loved the acrobatics.  The music was fun and we liked getting up and dancing! 

I have to tell you - the Ring Master was FANTASTIC!! He sang a lot and had lots of energy! I was very impressed!! 

I hope we get to go again next year!!

You can get more information on purchasing tickets in a previous post HERE.  The show runs through Monday.  I highly recommend it!

Luv2Dance Studio
1248 W Sportsplex Drive
Kaysville, UT 84037

Appointments and pre-payment are required!

FAQs

What do I need to bring with me to my session? Bring your daughter and her favorite princess/fairy dress or costume! I will have some fun accessories for her to borrow or of course she can bring her own. There is changing space available.

What can I expect from my mini session? I encourage you to arrive a few minutes early for your session to give you ample time to choose accessories and get her nails painted! Plan on time to change (if needed) and adjust hair. After her portraits she can check out our tea party with a sweet treat.

How do I order pictures? As part of this promotion, I will hand edit and retouch the 5 best images from your mini session (photographer's choice). Once those images have been edited (typically within 2 weeks of your session) you will receive an email with the images & print release attached. The 5 images will be high resolution files that you can archive at home yourself, or send to the photo lab of your choice for affordable printing. If, however, in addition to the digital files, you would like to order some prints through us (also very affordable) I are happy to give you an online coupon to use on my site for 20% off of a print order.

I have a house full of girls! Can we combine them? Absolutely! I encourage you to bring them all! Because of the length of these sessions and the limited number of edited images included, I do encourage to you book an individual session for each girl so that each child will get the necessary attention to bring out her personality. You may book back-to-back sessions. If, however, you would only be able to participate by sharing a session I are happy to accommodate as long as you recognize you will have only an images or two of each girl.

I really only need one picture for my holiday card. Can I split the session with my friend? Due to time constraints of this abbreviated session, I will not allow these sessions to be split between multiple families.

I have a son - can I participate? I've designed this event to highlight the beauty of the little girls in your life. If you are looking for an affordable option for your son I suggest you check out my standard sessions! I have an another special event in the winter that will be gender neutral!

So your ready to book your session? Please call Sherri Jamieson at 801-390-1417 so I can get you on the schedule and arrange pre-payment.

50 Gone!

A few weeks ago someone at Weight Watchers said "Never say you lost 50 pounds.  Saying you lost it implies you are looking for it and want it back." Hmm... Okay well.  After almost 1 year on the plan I am proud to say that I have been able to get rid of 50 pounds.  I never want it back!!
It's been hard work, I have lots of slip ups, and my willpower at times really sucks.  BUT I did it!  I feel and look so much better.
I still have a long way to go, but I CAN DO IT!!
I am doing something now that if you would have asked me a year ago I would have never considered doing.  This next weekend I am doing a mud run.  If you don't know what that is you can watch a video from last year.  I am excited and a bit nervous. It should be fun. 
I am registered for a 5K in October AND I let my friends talk me into running RAGNAR next June.  I am excited about running, it gives me a goal and something to look forward too!

A creative painted bag for my friend

Guest post written by Kelsey Simmons

My friend Beth has such a particular style that sometimes it can be really tough to find something that will exactly fit her tastes. She's always been that way, so it's a little tougher to find something that I know she'll actually like. This year I decided that it would be fun to just go ahead and try to make something that I knew that she would love.

I spent a while browsing all kinds of different DIY things that I could make for her and after all of that I decided to go with a bag. When I was looking online for DIY bag ideas I saw something on how to Get debt help and had to click on it. I have debt and would love to be rid of it, so I knew that would be perfect for this.

There was this really awesome DIY painted bag tutorial that I found and I knew that I had to absolutely make for her. So I'm working on that and hoping that it turns out looking half as cool as it did in the tutorial.

Fun Easter Decorations!


I don't have a lot of Easter decor in my house! I really need to change that. I actually don't have many decorations for holiday's other than for Christmas & Halloween.

On my favorite website Pinching Your Pennies I found a couple of Easter decorations that look like things that would be fun with my kiddos!

Yarn Easter Eggs -- You basically wrap yarn that you have dipped in glue around balloons. When the yarn dries you pop the balloon.

These Twine Wrapped Eggs are cute too! I think I like these the best.

Do you have any fun Easter traditions that you remember from your childhood? I remember my mom helping me make little bunnies with Hostess Snowballs. You use those as the bunny's head and make ears out of construction paper and then you can decorate the faces with candy. Black liquorice works great for whiskers.

Now -- Spring Break is underway! I must get going on these!!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me for next week -- tonight is Girl's Night!!

Preparing for a New Baby: Needs vs. Wants (A Guest Post by Alan Cassidy)


Preparing for a New Baby: Needs vs. Wants
Many expecting mothers get nervous about the many aspects involved in preparing for a new baby. Fortunately, there are very few things that the baby truly needs, although there are many things that are nice to have. Here are a few simple ways to help prepare yourself and your home for your baby.
Baby's Needs
Definite baby necessities include nutrition, a place to sleep, and a safe car seat. Mothers can get vital nutrients to the baby through breastfeeding or formula. Breastfeeding may encourage mother and baby bonding and can reduce the risk of some illnesses. Mothers who choose breastfeeding may wish to attend a breastfeeding class in preparation to learn the process and tips for success. Formula feeding mothers should have formula and bottles ready for their children's arrival, but don’t stock up on too much of one brand of formula; some babies may not eat certain kinds so find what your baby likes to eat first.
Babies will spend just as much time sleeping as eating; it is recommended that babies be placed in their own crib or bassinet for sleep because sharing a bed with parents or other adults can be unsafe sleeping conditions. And remember for babies, ‘back is best’
There are a wide range of infant car seats available to choose from. Although it’s tempting to save money, it’s not a good idea to purchase one without first doing your research on what the safety requirements are for infant car seats. With a used car seat, there is no guarantee that it was not in a car accident, which may comprise the seat's integrity. Safe car seat installation can be checked by a trained technician at any police station.
Convenience Items
While the above-mentioned are necessities for a new baby, there are other items that can help make life easier for mom. Lots of loose, comfortable sleeper pajamas are important, as these are an easy item to slip on and off the baby – something mom will want with all the diaper changes! A baby swing or seat is a great accessory to keep babies entertained while showering, cooking, or completing another task.
Preparations for the actual Delivery Day
A birth plan that outlines pain management preferences and other issues that may come up during labor is good to have. Women should also discuss the benefits of things such as blood testing for illnesses and cord blood banking with their doctor, and include such decisions in the birth plan. Blood testing can reveal inherited diseases that may benefit from early intervention treatments, and cord blood banking collects and stores the umbilical cord blood for potential future use.
Although all of these preparative steps may seem intimidating, they also exciting, and sometimes ease anxiety for mom-to-be.

Renovating a Home

Guest post by Gerard Mcdaniel

My husband and I just bought our first home, and we are so excited about everything. It took us a really long time to save up for the down payment, and we can’t wait to start with the renovations we want to do. We are going to gut the kitchen and put in all new appliances first. The next thing we want to do is re-do all of the bathrooms because they are all pretty old. Good thing my husband is very handy. We’re going to save t on because we’re doing everything ourselves. A neighbor suggested we go to www.totalalarmsystems.com and get set up with a home alarm. We hadn’t even thought about doing something like that, but it’s a great idea. We want to feel safe in our new home, and getting an alarm is definitely one way we could try to protect our home and assets. I can’t wait until we finally have all of our ducks in a row so our life can get back on a routine. This whole process of buying a homereally takes up a lot of your time and energy.
