"Live to Dance" finale...

It was a beautiful and sunny 75 degrees while we were in LA, & was so much fun! 
such a fabulous experience for these kids, and they are truly amazing to watch dance.

 I went with my sister to California to support my niece witney & "the Vibe" in 
their final dance on "Live to Dance." 
They were incredible!  
every single dance act was deserving to win.   It was fun to see 
Paula come to the Hotel and rehearse with all the groups. they all became 
such cute friends and everyone loved
Kendall Glover, she's adorable!!

the Production number that they did at the beginning of the show was so awesome to watch.  they pre recorded the whole dance so we got to see them do it over and over again.  i loved it!  

Paula Abdul is pretty much the cutest little thing. She is so tiny!  The kids all loved her but she 
definitely can drive you nuts too. haha

we went shopping at "the grove" and "farmers market" daily and ate the most 
delicious crepes covered in Nutella. Yummy!
i also loved their chips and quacamole. delicious!

it was funny that the first celebrity i saw while out shopping was "Paula Abdul"
 being interviewed by Extra!

some of the girls taking a break from rehearsal.

we all woke up at 4:45am to get the girls ready to go... it was a long day for them.


this was all the pre-recorded stuff that we went to watch.  all the dancers were so sweet to each other.  i love love loved the cute ballet couple. Nikki & Ethan, she is such a sweetheart and all of those kids LOVED her!

the night of the show was AMAZING!!  I loved watching all the dance acts, especially the Vibe.  Did you see me on TV?!   who would have thought that they would have sat me by the
 "Chi town" breakdancing kids! and to top it off those kids won a new car! haha  
  I was also sitting right behind the mom and dad of the cute little ballroom couple
 who won too!  I got some TV time. 

the next morning we were eating breakfast next to Kendall and her family.  She really is the cutest thing ever.  I wanted her to win so bad {of course if the Vibe couldn't}!!
