burlesque dancing!

our lovely patty and bubba will be tying the knot this coming august and to celebrate a bunch of us ladies went out dancing. and not just any ol’ dancing, but burlesque dancing! it was a hot and sticky friday afternoon when i drove to the big city in rush hour. i had my defences up and held my own against the cabbies and other aggressive big city drivers as i made my way to pick up the sassy divas from the hotel!


it was so, so hot in the studio, but it was so fun. there was no A/C, but instead a dinky little fan sat in one corner of the studio! our instructors were dressed in fabulous, glittery, lacy barely-there kinda corsets and brassiers and things; it was perfect!


we were all gifted little boas to dance with and lent satin, lacy fancy gloves. it was all very sexy!


here is a slide show of the dancing to tom jones’ “sex bomb”. just a warning in case you’re at work taking a quick sneak peak at the blog!


** people may not able to view the video on mobile phones, due to some rule youtube has.

lots of love to all the talented, amazing women who strutted their stuff! it was such a fun afternoon dancing and then wining and dining in the evening. i am so excited about this wedding and actually just bought my dress tonight!

a jimmy fallon video!

here is jimmy fallon (SNL grad), the roots (love ’em and have for years!) and carly rae jepson (not sure who she is), getting their jam on using classroom instruments! this video instantly made me smile! what fun!
well, it is the most perfect day out there. bright blue skies, not a cloud in sight, no humidity and a breeze to make it feel even more perfect! the kids have turned into nudie summer babes, running around the backyard in their nakedness, painting or doing chalk art. they are so stinkin’ adorable.

we have been in the throws of father’s day preps and i will post pictures of the final projects, so as not to spoil the surprise for anyone! bear knows all about dear hubby’s gift, but also fully understands that it’s a secret and explained to his dad that he can’t talk about it. whew!

time to go play!
enjoy your thursday!
what are you up to today?
