As I Cee It

Archive for November 2015

My love for Dancing with the Stars is no secret. This season, however, I ended up relating a lot to Bindi Irwin and I am incredibly excited that she won. That girl is the sweetest, most positive teenager I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I spent half the season trying to figure out how that was possible, and I’m wondering if it was because she was raised by koalas and kangaroos. (I joke, I kid, but Bindi and her family do live at the zoo.)

In celebration of her win, here are my three favorite dances from her and Derek:

1) Week 10: Jazz Trio – Obviously, Derek picked Mark to be their partner in the trio. The choreography here was fantastic; it was just so creative and danced perfectly. I felt like in this week, Bindi put all the other contestants to shame.

2) Week 6: Dirty Dancing/Rumba – Who doesn’t love the Dirty Dancing routine?? I was so excited that they were assigned this routine and loved the way it turned out.

3) Finals: Freestyle – And last, but most certainly not least, is their freestyle to Footprints in the Sand. This routine had everyone in tears. It was absolutely gorgeous, the perfect freestyle for Bindi.

Good morning!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to share the holiday with your friends and family. Our family got together at my sister’s house for the fifth year, and the food was BANGIN’.

I will be heading out shortly to go shopping for Black Friday with my sister. It’s a tradition of ours, and one that we both enjoy immensely. Before I do so, I wanted to give a heads up of what’s to come. I am challenging myself to get back in the spirit of blogging as I celebrate the holidays. I’m calling it the 25 Days of Christmas (you know, like the holiday movies I love that come on ABC Family). Each day, my plan is to share a holiday-related post. I won’t lie to you and promise that I’ll make it. I certainly hope I do. However, the idea of coming up with 25 topics is a bit daunting. Feel free to shoot any ideas my way.

I’d also like to remind you of Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday. Most of us that are shopping today will be heading towards the heavy hitters – your Best Buys, Targets, malls – just remember to frequent your local establishments and give back to your favorite charities as well.

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
