FROM YOUR LAME BLOGGER WHO'S BEEN M.I.A.

My life is crazy.

Like attracts like right?

A few updates before I write you a regular blog later this weekend; I've been in L.A. my former "home" for a few years for the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. As many of you know my Mom's dance student, Kayla- made the top four! We were so proud, obviously and had to come support! I went to my beautiful Momma and good friend Travis Wall who you may know from the show- if you follow all that biz.


I had a few MAJOR epiphanies while I was here, while at a part with my former agency- I realized, "WHY, for so long did I feel the desire to be like these people????.....Why did I allow myself to feel so incredibly horrible, unappreciated, ugly, fat, insecure, etc. etc. for so long?? When here I am today, feeling like the most beautiful spirit in the room."

it was so apparent how much I've grown and such a reminder that I'm EXACTLY where I need to be in my life.

I FELT HAPPY. Genuinely. For probably the first time since being in L.A.

SO, while I HAVEN'T been blogging I've been going this;

EATING CRUMBS CUPCAKES! Guess which one......
IMPULSE SHOPPING............

DOING FANCY FINALE THINGS........ yay confetti!

AND OBVIOUSLY, CELEBRATING with miss Kayla.

Tomorrow, I will return home and for once, with no regret. Without feeling as though I need to be here. So my new life now, THANK YOU. Thank you for making me feel like I belong with you.

....more blogging later.

Wheee!! Go Kayla!! I bet it was cool to be at the finale of SYTYCD. I followed that show all season this time.
You're so cute, I'm glad you're more comfortable in your own skin now.

Cait said...

I saw you tweeting about being Travis's +1 at the finale, and just about DIED. I love him.

Looks like you had fun! I love SYTYCD.

Jessica said...

Oh my god, cupcakes!!! They all look delish!

Goodluck with SYTYCD! :)

That's rad! I love SYTYCD and Kayla is an amazing dancer! What studio does your mom teach at? Is it in LA?

I am salivating over those cuppy cakes!

Amy --- Just A Titch said...

You are about the cutest thing ever! And those cupcakes!

Lindsay [Bella Cene'] said...

=) So glad to hear you're enjoying it so much! I would love to go to LA.

Mmm, crumb cakes.

Hillary said...

Kayla was robbed! She was the most talented dancer of the top 4. She should have won.

kage said...

Please tell me you ate one of the multi-coloured sprinkled cupcakes in the middle of the case.

And on another note, glad to hear you're feeling good about yourself....

Jules said...

Those cupcakes look amazing! And I was sad Kayla didn't win! I thought she was the best!!!!!

p.s. You're stinkin' adorable!!

Jill said...

I'm new to your blog...and probably old enough to be your mother. With age comes even more confidence, Chica. I think you rock!

LiLu said...

MIA is totally excusable when you're doing STUFF OF THE AWESOME!

chelsina said...

E said...

So happy you feel this way. NYC, LA, there's no need to let those cities treat us badly. Ever. AGAIN.

chloe said...

HoneyBunny said...

Well done to the girl!

And I loove cupcakes! They look so delicious!

RenaissanceTrophyWife said...

oh fun! The finale must've been incredible. And cupcakes and shopping? you lucky girl!

Have a fantastic trip home. (and sorry it's taken me so long to comment back; I've been MIA too!)

Rosie said...

Argh Spoilerssss I am watching SYTYCD in Australia, where we just this Friday found out who the top 10 are... But good for Kayla. I was watching the show at my gym, and I burst into tears on the treadmill when I watched her "Addiction" routine. She stole my heart right then and there.

Lily G. said...

Wow, I can't believe you were at the finale of SYTYCD. how amazing!!!

Michelle said...

So I failed to remember to link you, but now I am and will read each one of your posts! Lovely! xo.

lovelila said...

Mmm...cupcakes...

I'm a complete failure at keeping up with SYTYCD. I'll start watching it, then stop, then start, then stop again and never start back up. Congrats to Kayla to making top four, though! That's awesome!

Glad you had a good time in L.A!

Jill Pilgrim said...

Very cool!! Also? You're gorgeous.

Melissa Blake said...

GO KAYLA!!! :) Congrats on the realization too -- I bet it feels wonderful.

Maris said...

Nice choice on the cupcakes!

Chelsea - fyi, I moved my blog to a new domain. Hope you'll pop by :) http://ingoodtasteblog.net.

cavy said...

HOLY EFFING BALLS I AM SO JEALOUS!!!

of the cupcakes.

please, of EVERYTHING!! looks like you had a fantabulous time!

for the love of pictures said...

I love Crumbs cupcakes. I'm partial to the Red Velvet but, who am I kidding, I'd take pretty much any kind.

I'm a big SYTYCD fan; and that's really cool about Kayla being your mom's student and Travis (so adorable!).

Erin said...

I don't watch this show, but you look so cute in these pictures!

Is This Real Life? said...

Looks like a cool show!
And a fun trip!

Melissa said...

OMG that is so awesome! My life was dancing till my knees and toes fell apart. Congrats to Kayla and your mom!

I have an award for you at my blog should you like to pick it up :)

Phoenix said...

As someone who lives deep in the underbelly of all the superficial crap that goes on LA... I salute you for rising above it.

High five, girl.

Brett Alexandra said...

That is TOO cool. So jealous. I'm also jealous of those delicious looking cupcakes!

Chelsea. said...

Kayla was my favorite, I was sad to see that she got 4th :(

Taylor said...

Yums, cupcakes look delicious. And that's awesome that you know Kayla!! Your mom must be an amazing dancer herself.

I love that you're happy with yourself, it's so refreshing to hear that from a girl :)

John Bryson said...

Is that you in the yoga picture? If so, I'd like to propose marriage.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Wow, everyone thank you so much for the awesome comments- if i had know you were all such cupcake fans maybe there would have been a giveaway...ah, the ideas are swirling...... ;)

and thank you for the support to Kayla! I'll pass on the lovely words her way!!!

ROSIE! Sorry for the spoiler! I wasn't even thinking about that! AH!

Jenni said...

I forgot that you are friends with Kayla. I adore that show more than anything. She was AMAZING! And so glad you took a blogging break. We all need that sometimes to get out there and enjoy life (i.e. eat lots of cupcakes and purchases shirts with cats on them ;)) HaHa.

samsam85 said...

You're blog is gold. Always makes me laugh reading it after a LONG day at work because it's all so true!

La Petite Belle said...

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Kristan said...

Omigosh, I am TOTALLY jealous of your SYTYCD connections right now. Even though this comment is a couple weeks late...

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and offering me the encouragement! :D

Wine and Words said...

I loved that show, and loved leggy Kayla! I'm so glad it will be back in the fall instead of next summer. Envy you the "brightest spirit in the room" feeling. Someday I'll get there...

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

kristan and wine and words: I'm so glad you both watched the show, and yes leggy kayla- shes quite fierce !!
