Lots of Happies + extra EXCITING NEWS!

Today I'm linkin-up for another Friday wrap-up of Happies and Crappies!

The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up

Let me tell you guys, what a whirl wind of a week this has been! You've probably notice a few more "bummed out" than normal posts lately, but NOT ANYMORE! But that will come later ;)



Drew did NOT get to swear in to the Army AGAIN. So many different ordeals (none of them his fault) and so much waiting! I'm blessed to have such a patient man, but poor sweetheart needs to catch a break!!

Because of said Army difficulites, Drew has been back and forth to Dallas every other day for the past two weeks. Mega bummer!


Fun flute choir concert with the Baylor Honor Flutes this week! Every Sunday, the Baylor flute studio meets with a group of high school and middle school flutists from the area, and we finally put on a concert of all the music we have been practicing!

These are three of the adorable young ladies I teach private lessons to every week. I swear I'm taller than them....they all plotted against me and wore heels. 

Got to have another Sarah date this week. Yep, go ahead and be jealous...or just come to Waco and visit!

Drew loved his belated Valentine's gift! And I love that I have such a goofy fun man that I can buy Happy Socks for :) 

He is wearing the green stripy ones today, if you were wondering...

Now, for my blogging friends who have been with me for a while now, you know I had an audition for an Artist Diploma program that did NOT go so well. (This isn't a "crappie," promise!)

Well, my SUPER HAPPY/EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT is not that I got in to the program in Illinois,
but that I randomly decided to apply the the most prestigious private studio ever in England (stalk here, but ignore the mega 90's geocities-style website)

and DRUMROLL............


So, I am incredibly honored and excited and terrified to announce that I will be moving to England in the fall  to study with get my butt kicked by the world famous flutist Trevor Wye for 6 whole months!!! Its going to be such an incredibly and life-changing experience, and I am so excited to share all of my journey with you all!!

Thanks for all of your encouraging comments and notes these past few weeks, I appreciate you all more than you know!

I hope you are excited to join with me on my journey to England! EEEEEEE :)

More details on England as time goes on, and I hope you all have a blessed and relaxing weekend! <3


  1. This is awesome news!!! Congratulations! England, wow, that is going to be such an adventure. So happy all your hard work finally paid off!

  2. WOOOOHOOO FOR WYE'S STUDIO! And woohoo for me and RP3 totally visiting. It's happening.

  3. Oh my goodness! CONGRATULATIONS! That's so exciting! And...in typical fashion...you along with every other flutist I have ever met, are gorgeously thin. What is it about the flute? Maybe I should switch from singing opera to becoming a flutist.
