a day in the life of olive

Good morning lovelies!

I did it, I did it, I did it!  I taught my very first PiYo class.  I have been so nervous about this all week.  It was a great exercise in not letting fear rule me, but instead facing it head on and conquering it!

My class was supposed to start at 9:15am, so I arrived early, dimmed the lights, got the music going and waited.  And waited.  9:15am came and went. 9:20 came and went.  Just as I was about to give up hope, an angel (aka Betty:) walked through the door!  I was so happy! It would have been a huge let down if no one had showed up.  A few minutes later another person showed…so my class ended up consisting of only two people.  Hey, I’ll take it.  Thank the Lord for Betty;)

Despite my nervousness I think everything went really well!

Before class this morning, I was so nervous that my appetite was virtually non existent.  I knew I needed some fuel though, so I managed to get a larabar down.

And then after PiYo, I had a hankering for some cereal.

Shredded wheat n bran, Kashi U + almond milk

Amidst the chaos of today, I’ve been working on my homework assignment for my photography class.  For the creative part of the assignment I decided to focus on my favorite little furbaby by doing “A Day in the Life of Olive” project.  So, if you’re interested in the least bit in what little miss does from the time her parents’ alarms go off to the time her furry head hits the pillow at night – or if you just get all giddy inside when you see cute pictures of pups, then here’s a little treat.

This is just the first part of the project

Olive wakes up from a restful night of sleep

A bit annoyed because she isn’t ready to get out of bed

Time to go outside to potty!  Ohhh, something smells good – is that breakfast??

time to eat!

looks like someone forgot to shower

In the top five of favorite daily leisure activities.  Staring out the front window.

And back outside for more potty time…and a little fresh air:)

to be continued later…

I gotta run now – I’m getting my hairs cut this afternoon!

I’ll be back a little later to show you what tasty creation I made with these

    Yay on the first class!!! Olive is too cute. We had one girl who hated to be woken up in the morning. She liked her beauty rest. Now I have 2 that can’t wait for us to get up (so they wake us up)!
