Delilah Williams bought her dress from Bebe and I my dress was a Jessica McClintock. Sharon said we looked like reversed French Maids….I thought that was a great way of describing us.

I don’t have any more details on what Delilah was wearing, but here is my run down.

Dress – Jessica McClintock
Tights – Tabeau Tights by Wolford
Shoes – Gramercy by Remix

Here is a picture of what my nails were supposed to look like:

My Birthday!

Today has been a long day. So far I’ve taught two classes – One Swing, One World and an aerials class – and done a tech rehearsal for tonight’s show. I now need to shower, eat dinner, do my hair and makeup, and then get ready to perform!!

Wish me luck!



Oh yeah, and if’ you’re feeling overly generous, you can buy me something by either going here or clicking on a picture of something below:

Or you can just send me an email wishing me Happy Birthday!
