I CAN NOT WAIT! this is something ive been dreaming about since I was 3!

eeekkk!!!! I'm most excited for my family to fly out and be apart of this incredible experience:) My little siblings haven't seen New York so it will be neat to show them around! Christmas will be a little different with out my family but Carson is flying out to spend it with me! I'm such a lucky girl:)

Living The Dream

It's amazing to me how life happens. Sometimes life leads us where we want it and other times we want to run from it. How did I luck out to be right where I want it?
...I am one lucky chicken right now and I hate those blogs that brag about how blessed they are but Im going to do just bear with me...

It all started on a Monday morning at my parents house where I was in tears of frustration, complaining to my mom and older sister. Tears due to financial stress and a need to do something more, to experience something different at this point in my life. I left the house that morning feeling defeated and said a quick prayer to help me feel like life was going to be ok. That sounds really dramatic... but I was a stressed out 19 year old:) As I was driving away my phone buzzed with an unknown Nevada number and some news that changed my life. My situation had just gone from dramatic to exciting/craziness in a matter of 15 min....There were still a ton of details to work out but by Tuesday night it was decided that I was moving to Vegas to be apart of the Donny and Marie Osmond Show in Vegas as well as the Broadway run in NYC! What a whirlwind! I had 5 days to uproot my life and get toVegas...
Obviously i just gave the shortest version of all the craziness but it was amazing to me how everything all fell into place. There have been a number of blessings that have come my way. I have a darling friend who is in the Elvis cirque show who is letting crash at her place till NYC! Then hopefully we'll find a place together! Its a
huge financial blessing and if I'm going to be apart of a Vegas show, what better show then Donny and Marie. I know ill never be asked to do anything that makes me uncomfortable or wear anything immodest. The show is dark sunday/mondays and the other dancers are great people.

I've been in rehearsals all week learning the show and tonight is my first night going in! ahhh wish me luck:)
