Practicing with my new camera.  Love this picture!
Last week was mother's day and it made me realize how blessed I am to have such great examples in my life.  My mom is the perfect example of putting her family first. 

I am also grateful for the opportunity I have to be a mom.  I love my baby girl so much and feel so blessed that I get to be her mom!
On April 26-30th I was in Disney World!  My sr hip hop team qualified for Worlds.  It was so fun, but I was really stressed out having to be in charge of 17 teenage girls and a teenage boy!  They were great kids and I had great chaperones to help out! I really missed my little family though.  I had never left Ashtyn for more than just a night, so by the third day, I was pretty homesick!  I brought my computer so I could skype with them so it made it a little better!  Next time they are coming with me!

On Friday, we got together with some friends for a sushi party.  They had attended a sushi rolling class so they showed us how to make our own.  Before they came over over, I told them that I like California rolls, with the imitation crab.  The thought of eating raw fish grosses me out.  I learned that in order to eat raw fish, you have to get a special kind.  It's fish that is immediately frozen upon catching to make it edible... or something like that.  I couldn't believe myself, but I ate the raw tuna and salmon.  It was actually really good.  You couldn't really taste the fish with everything else that was in with it!
