confession time.

Happy Weekend, Friends!

Ok. Confession time. I have a few secrets to let you all in on. 

Confession #1: 
One of the reasons I've been taking dance classes at BSU is because I've been preparing for an audition.

Confession #2: 
I didn't tell anyone because I didn't want to add too much pressure on myself. There's nothing like having to tell all of your friends and family when you've been rejected. (Frowny Face.) 
I wanted to avoid that situation if at all possible.

Confession #3:
I auditioned for the Graduate Modern Dance Program at the University of Utah on March 11th.

Confession #4:
 I got my letter in the mail 10 days later. 
{Gid woke me up at 7:30 in the morning to tell me the news, and I ran out to the mailbox (half asleep and in my pajamas), grabbed the letter stared at it for about 3 minutes. After letting my heart calm down a little, I opened it (as gideon video taped me like a proud grandfather).}

Confession #5: 
I was accepted. 
{Exclamation Mark.}

Confession #6: 
That's not all. 
{Exclamation Mark. Exclamation Mark.}

Confession #7: 
I was selected to receive a full scholarship for the Integrated Movement Studies Program. 
{Exclamation Mark. Exclamation Mark. Exclamation Mark.}

Confession #8: 
That means I start my studies in Salt Lake City in June. 
{You read that right. June. As in 12 weeks from NOW.}

Confession #9: 
I cried just a teensy bit when I opened the letter; I'm so excited I can hardly breathe.

So there it is, friends! Our lives are taking an entirely different turn and we can hardly wait. Gid and I are going to miss our boise family that we've developed over the past 2 years, but we look forward to starting this new season of excitement soon.

Confession #10:
 I have the best husband in the world, and I love him more than anything.
{But that's not really a confession as much as a statement.}

At first I really didn't want Gid to video my opening of the letter, but I'm really happy that we can share it with close friends and especially family (especially you, mom). I'd like to put in a formal disclaimer that I literally had just woken up (you can tell which side of my head I was sleeping on) and made no effort whatsoever to get ready because the only thing in the world I was interested in at this moment was the contents of this letter.

Enjoy, friends.

ps- isn't it sweet how excited gideon is? 
I know it sounds like he's more excited than me, but we're actually equally excited. 
He was just more awake than I was.
