ballroom dancin.

last month i talked about my collection of party dresses. here's one from the bunch, and luckily i was able to barely zip this one up. i'm not even sure i wore this one out, but i love
the feel of it. makes me feel like i should be
dancing with the stars. haha.

true story. my mom and i took ballroom dancing lessons years ago, way before all these dance shows popped up. since we wanted to go together, we signed up for a "couples" lesson....meaning we had to share one instructor. pretty awkward having to take turns. then every friday they had a dance night where you could come and practice your dancing with other students. nowadays, with all the popular dance shows on tv, there's a much younger generation showing interest in ballroom dancing. back then?
not so much. and being asked to dance by grandpas?
now that's pretty awkward.

have you tried ballroom dancing?

continuing on with the weekend photos, saturday was girls'
night out at a restaurant where everything is $3.90.
great atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food and drinks.
yuzu cyu-high (some kind of alcoholic beverage that
tasted like lemon-lime soda) and hot tea.
fried musubi & soup.

  1. That dress looks great on you; I love that last photo.

    I've never tried ballroom dancing. I've always wanted to, but I'm so tall I'm afraid I won't find a tall enough partner.

  13. Very dancing with a stars outfit indeed! But I loved it! I don't know ballroom dances, but I would love to learn. I'm thinking of taking latin dance lessons next year. We'll see.

  14. Looks like salsa night to me! When we going, haha. I took ballroom dance in high school, but forgot everything. Though you may have been uncomfortable dancing with grandpas, I bet you made their day!

  16. This would be an ideal dress for ballroom!!! My man and I go swing dancing sometimes and have been wanting to branch out a little into ballroom. We're taking a class next week actually...but we love swing so much I think it'll always be the fav.

  23. That’s so sweet! Mother and daughter, together, attending the dancing class! That’s what I’ve been suggesting to my wife to do with our daughter too, but she’s busy working, that’s why I was the one accompanying our little girl on her dance class. It feels good to see your daughter learn new steps every day.
