Happy Father’s Day <3

Hi friends ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Sunday! Hope youโ€™re having a wonderful morning complete with legendary breakfast plans ๐Ÿ˜‰

I took the night of blogging last night because after teaching 3 classes at the resort and working all day, I came home and said goodbye to the world for a few hours and snoozed with my Snoogle. After I woke up, the Pilot and I got ready and and met up with some friends at the Breakout recital.

We had a little while before the show started, so we hit up a nearby taco truck so the Pilot could grab some dinner and I could have a snack.

There are taco trucks all over Tucson โ€“the Pilot said thereโ€™s one that drives around base playing the Mexican hat dance song, like a grown-up ice cream truck- and a lot of them have aaaaaamazing food. The Pilot had a Sonoran hot dog and a taco, and I had a side of refried beans covered with salsa + sips of his horchata. It reminded me that I need to make some now that summer is here ๐Ÿ™‚

The recital was amazing and it definitely made me miss my hardcore dancing days. The Pilot was a good sport about it, too ๐Ÿ˜‰


So as you guys know, today is Fatherโ€™s Day <3


Iโ€™m blessed to surrounded by a family of strong, hardworking, loving and supportive men.

My dad has taught me so much about using your talents, making the most out of life and putting your heart and soul into whatever it is you do.

Iโ€™m also lucky to have my stepdad, father-in-law and Tata

    You are lucky to have so many strong men in your life! It’s not Fathers Day over here (we have that in September) but when it does com around I always like to acknowledge that special breed of man called an UNCLE. In my family there are many fatherless kids, but the uncles are there, going above and beyond the call of duty, day and night, attending birthdays and preschool functions, doing the ‘rough and tumble’, giving up their side of the bed and giving out hugs. Good Uncles are an unappreciated species. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Ali on June 19, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    Your photo of you and your dad on your wedding day is beyond precious!! You look so radiant! I know how you feel about missing dance even more when you see others do it. I have the same feelings when I watch So You Think You Can Dance. But at least you still have dance in your life! I hope your night is excellent!

  21. Janiek on June 20, 2011 at 10:31 am
