Storm Breaker...The Real Fat Man

Last year my silly cousin text me a crazy Christmas text and this year I think she topped herself (although I did not think it was possible)! This Storm Breaker will surely make you laugh or at least shake your head with a smile on your face.

A Real Fat Man

If a real fat man snatches you up and throws you in a bag do not be afraid. It's just Santa collecting his hos. I'm texting you from the bag now!!!!

I burst out laughing at that silly lady. Like I said my cousin is stoopid! Merry Christmas and enjoy your holidays ;-)

Peace & Blessings...

Outside Your Door...

I am standing outside your door. Thinking, contemplating, trying to get up the nerve to move this...somewhere. Forward? Backward? I am not sure but I am sure that it is time to make it move somewhere other than here. My new-found confidence has left me in this place of needing to surrender or retreat. Needing to know a feeling of reciprocity or walking away in retreat, not defeat.

This is not defeat because the time spent together will forever be pleasant memories that bring smiles to my face. Memories of burning holes in the dance floor hardwoods and wiping sweat as we dipped, stepped and swayed to different rhythms from around the world.

Here I stand outside your door. A woman simply asking a question. Talk to me?

Smiles, Salsa and Sweet Memories

These past few weeks have been absolutely wonderful! My ladies Salsa group has performed a few times around town in the past week and they are an absolute riot to be around. I have so many wonderful memories with them. I am truly blessed to have been invited to join their group.

The original routine that I learned after joining this group was tough for me. I had to learn to lead and in doing so became responsible for memorizing the routine, the hits on beat and keeping time with the music. As a lead, if you mess up you also mess up the follower who is dancing with you. No pressure there!

I LOVE this routine, maybe because it is my original routine with the group. We danced to the Swedish group I mentioned here. We were missing 4 ladies (2 couples) but it was a fun night.

We also performed at a family friendly daytime event. There was a toddler there who 'bounced' on beat to the lesson. Absolutely adorable.

We have the debut of the new routine this weekend with the big three day conference and everyone is excited. Life is still good. I am enjoying each day and there is still a constant smile that seems to creep its way to my face. I am not sure how or when I got here but I am certainly enjoying the moment.

Hope all is well with you blog family!

Until Next Time,
Peace & Blessings...

Random Thunderstorms...(Holiday Edition)

My Thanksgiving week was great. I slept in, went to bed early, played with the furbaby, danced (of course) and caught up with some family and friends. I even started replacing the outlets in my house. I was so proud of myself for that one.

I don't do Black Friday or anything that involves crowds of that magnitude. I'll wait for a few weeks, everyone will be broke and the sales will return.

I'm planning the next dance event. Follow us on FB for a discount to the next one in January.

I called a few bluffs over the Thanksgiving week with a few men. If you're not willing to put in the work please keep moving. Serious inquiries only...

Speaking of 'men' my (former) Addiction called to wish me a Happy Belated Birthday. I sent him to voice mail and he actually left a message. After a few days I sent a text thanking him for the belated birthday wish which he responded hoping I enjoyed my birthday. I chose not to keep the conversation going. I am not cruel or heartless and wanted to acknowledge his call but do not want to fall under his spell again.

I have three performances in the next weeks with my Salsa group. Hopefully I can record at least one of them. Those routines are bad! (in a good way ;)

I came out of my holiday slump this year. I adore the holiday season, starting with my birthday it is one big celebration until New Year's Day. For the past few years I kind of boycotted the holidays. I felt they were 'tainted' after the divorce but this year I cleaned out my storage closet, threw out all of the remnants and smiled to myself as I put up my Christmas decorations. I still LOVE the holiday season, I guess this means I am officially moving on with my life.

I know it's the holiday season when I see my favorite commercials. I LOVE this one:

And of course this one cracks me up. Their marketing people are genius!

Life is good right now. I am happy with the way things are going. My events are showing promise, my performance group has potential to make me a professional dancer and I have a smile on my face.

Hope you are enjoying your holiday season as well!

Until Next Time,
Peace & Blessings...
