Save the last dance for me...

So with my randomness kick & trying ever so hard to feel better & back on track I went and did something completely different. For starters if I haven't told all of you, I used to dance. I danced for 10 years when I was younger. Tap, jazz, Ballet, & Pointe. I think my toesies still hurt from pointe but that feeling of gracefullness & weightless that comes with dancing is something I truly miss. A friend of mine told me of a party at a Ballroom dance studio & I jumped at the chance to go.


Like a true dancer, the owner named Natalie, would not stay still enough for me to get a clear picture of her!! That's her above. She was having a birthday party for her & celebrating the opening of her studio. OMG! It was so much fun. I don't know much ballroom dancing & Latin dancing, but I still put on my party shoes & black dress.


That's me & my friend Debra, who knew the dancing lady. For a few moments I didn't have to think...all I had to do was move my feet & let my skirt twirl around. It was such a breath of fresh air to an insane week. I got to learn a lil bit of swing dancing too. I'm not sure of this type of dancing is something I'd want to take lessons in but it was fun for the night. It brought my smile back for a lil while.....

The New Guy didn't answer my phone call. I asked him if he would like to learn how to dance...he said No, I don't dance, lol. But when I tried to be cutesy & say I'll teach something small lata...he didn't answer. He didn't pick up for my phone call a lil bit later either. Well I hope he had fun last night...NOT! I'm not sure what to think so I went home & actually got to sleep. It was glorious to actually sleep at night!! I woke up this morning & was outside in the daylight. I felt refreshed, I felt the rays of the sun on my face, & Woa it was just what I needed. I needed to feel free from the confines of drama for a lil while...

Tomorrow I'm going to drive around a couple of the industrial parks around where I live & write down the names of the companies. I need a new job so I'm hoping to go look at the companies websites & see if they are possibily hiring. I can't just rely on Monster.com. Here's hoping!!!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'll be around to catch up on everyone's blogs. Sometimes you need to just sit back & take a breath. Seriously you'll feel much better after. =)

I used to dance also! Tap, jazz, ballet, and hip hop in high school. Getting out there and doing something you truly love always makes life a little sweeter :)

About the guy, his loss for not wanting to try something new.

I'm glad you enjoyed a night out dancing and had a good night's sleep. I'm always so grateful when I get a good night's night sleep that it ranks #1 on my list of happiness (wow, a bit sad, but true).

Dancing is the best!!! I used to take a cardio hip hop class - it so wasn't me, but so much fun!

Dancing is great because it's fun and exercise. And you get to meet some people when you're looking sexy!

I used to be a dancer too and I've always wanted to try it again. I'm glad you had a great time!

this sounds like a good night. I am happy you did something you wanted to do and your entire schedule wasn't taken over by the new boy. as necessary as it it to develop new relationships sometimes we need to take time off for ourselves and sleep is always good haha (not that I got any last night lol). plus I have a lot of friends who met their best friends through dance so this all seems like a great opportunity

Sheri said...

Sounds like such a fun party! I used to do ballet and I took a few ballroom dance classes, never got too into it though.

Serisouly delete that rude boy's digits. He is NOT worth your time.

See dancing is one of those things I really should be able to do but can't.

woodlandsblonde said...

I LOVE that you went dancing :) It sounds like it's something that you really enjoy and are good at. You should get back in to it :)

Oh the sun...I'm a little lobster after this weekend of laying out in Texas....ouch!

Ditch that guy....puhleeezeeee

Job hunting. Augh. I hate it, but I love dancing. Only I don't really dance, I just sort of thrash around. It's fun, but I don't think too pretty. :P
