i'm darkness and light, bubbles and faerie wings.
i am sparkles and glitter, shadows and clouds.
i love purple, and faeries, and books, and music.

i survived my highland performance

I was terrified and nervous but I had a good time. I was not perfect and I missed some steps but the crowded room at the senior’s residence seemed to really enjoy the show. I am glad I did the performance even though my need for being perfect could not be fulfilled.  I can’t say I will be competing any time soon, but I wouldn’t rule it out in the future.

Shawn did record both my dances, but I don’t feel comfortable putting them up on youtube because I don’t need people watching them and making fun of my mistakes. So I’ll think about it. Here, though, are some photos!

As you can see, Finnegan was all decked out in his kilt and plaid ready to get his Highland on today. Sadly there wasn’t enough time with how fast everything went AND the fact that Shawn had my camera and I had Finnegan. So much for that idea. 😉

I love highland shoes sooooo much. And I am pretty proud of my point. =P

This is me and Maureen showing off our point. I was having fun with my iPhone while waiting for my second performance. 😉

Isn’t Becca the cutest 5 year old Highland dancer? I especially love her antlers. Maureen is wearing the pretty white Nationals dress. I want one of those if I actually do this for competitions and not just for exercise!

Here is Mo and others getting ready to start the Flora.  I do not know that one. I am happy about that.

Little Miss ElisE@, Finnegan’s sweetheart, doing some Reel thing. She always takes perfect photos. There is never a bad photo of her EVER no matter what she does. I hate that. *grumble*

I had to get a photo with my 4 bestest friends before we all changed into real clothes and had cookies! I am rather grumbly about the fact that my original BFF Zabeth (in purple) is almost my height at only 9 years old. I also fit into her shoes. Guess who put dibs on her sparkly pink hightops when she outgrows them in a month? ME!

And we had to let off a little nervous energy, too. I love my friends!
