Dancing with my self (and others)

Last Saturday night, there was a party. An incredibly awesome party.

For me.

I sort of helped plan it, because I'm just that controlling helpful. I wanted to go dancing, but didn't want to drive all the way to DC (Exhibit A: ELDERLY.) I wanted to dance with lots of people, but I didn't want to wait till midnight when most clubs really start hopping and I didn't want to dance with a bunch of 20 year olds to music I don't know or like.  (Exhibits B, C, D and JUST KEEP GOING.)

So CG rented out this little ballroom dance studio close to our house (Go small town with your almost hip ways!) and brought in a ton of food and booze and friends and, well, it was just the best party ever in the history of parties.

I loved every second of it. 

Oh right, I've been meaning to call my chiropractor....

That's my mom dancing with CG there in the center. My mom drove down from NJ!

I'm leading! No, I'm leading!

That blur in the middle would be me, dancing with my self, Billy Idol style.

World's largest and most delicious sheet cake.

For CG's 40th? I'm going to have to rent out an entire space camp or something.

I think my 40s are going to rock.

We totally need to do this. (Though I may be intimidated by our friends who've kept up with their ballroom dancing skills since college while I...have not.)

Happy birthday! You look amazing btw, and so happy. What a cool party! I love dancing too but there's so rarely a good venue.

Such a fun party!! I didn't know that was your mom. Disappointed that I didn't get to meet her. Your 40's will be wonderful! Love that you married a younger man!! I did too but he's only 2 months younger.

1. You're adorable and I LOVE your shoes.

2. This party looks INCREDIBLE and for a second I thought to myself "hey, people should do THIS, similar to that new fad where everyone has wine and paints the same painting", but I think that's JUST INVENTING BALLROOM DANCING LESSONS PLUS WINE.

3. BRILLIANT idea, lady! Happy Birthday, again! :)
