I love what I do!!

So you probably would expect this blog to be about the upcoming wedding, but it's not. I decided to not talk wedding and talk work instead!

I have realized that I love what I do!! This is both jobs I have!! How many people can say they truly love their job? Yes I do complain, but it's not because I dislike it. I'm human like everyone else and need a break at times and hate getting up in the morning , but most of the time I love it!!

Job #1 consist of taking care of my Hunters. I love that I'm not tied down behind a desk all day and that I get to play all summer. Yes there are days that the girls are challenging, but what do I expect they are 4, 13 and 15. Aren't you all jealous of those ages....but most of the time we have fun.

Job #2 consist of teaching my wonderful dancers. There are days there too that I complain. Competition and recital times become stressful. If I got paid for every extra hour I spend doing stuff for these times I wouldn't need job #1. But I was taught along time ago, you teach dance because you love it not because you want to be rich. There are also days I want to kill children and parents, sometimes I swear some just like to hear them complain. But when my kids get up on stage I find myself more nervous watching them then I ever felt when I danced and competed. I also love the fact that so many of my friend I grew up with are now bringing their kids to take dance from me. These are the ones I think I enjoy the most sometimes. I feel special that I get to teach them, that these people feel comfortable enough to trust me with their kids!! I also love the bond I have with my competition kids. I see these kids more during the week, so you begin to feel like family. In fact their families gradually become my family and vice versa.

I feel so blessed to have both of these jobs!!

I know I said I wouldn't mention it, but wedding in 12 days!! I'm having anxiety attacks over moving!! Pray I can make it through the next couple of days!!

It all started at the begining of the month. My mom received a phone call from the lady in charge of my reception venue. She had been contacted by the casting director of a show on The Style Network called "Jerseylicious". The show is about The Gatsby Salon in New Jersey. It seems they have decided to bring the cast to Texas to feature a Big Texas Wedding and wanted to know if my venue had anything coming up. Immediatly my catering/venue manager put them in touch with me!

Well after about 2 weeks of phone conversations with the casting director, I finally got the 100% go ahead. They are coming down here and are going to feature my Big Texas WEdding on their show!! We are all so excited!! I don't know all the details yet, but I will post them as I know them.

I have exactly 2 weeks and 6 days left as an unmarried woman...Can you believe it?!
