Ballroom Dancing

This weekend we (a group of ten of us that are somehow related) went to the Dancesport Ballroom Dance Competition. It was FANTASTIC! I loved it. So many pretty dresses, and really talented dancers. I wish I could dance like that, and get away with wearing really sparkly dresses every day.

We started out with dinner at Bajios. Here we are eating! That's my mom on the right, then my Aunt Joan, then my sister in the center, Pam (my cousins friend), and Trish my cousin. Oh, and me! Then we spent the rest of the night, until 12:30 (that's when I got home, I think it was about 2:00 when my mom did since she had to drive) watching the very talented ballroom dancers. This is one of my favorite couples in the Latin dancing. He had a sexy rexy shirt that showed off his chest! It's a blurry photo because they were too busy shaking it to pose for me.

Here are my really sparkly earrings - which I stole, um I mean borrowed, from my mom fare and square! They hurt like you wouldn't believe. Clip-on's - I don't know who thought that was a good idea but they definitely are not in the comfortable category. They lasted about 20 minutes on my ears and spent the rest of the night in my purse.

Here is my adorable mother! She didn't like the guys hand in the picture, but this was the best one out of the 5 that we took. It looks like he is going to grab her neck and strangle her if we took one more photo. Good thing we stopped with 5!

Oh the pretty dresses!

First, I have to say how cute the earrings are. I can;t wear clip ons either. My ears are sensitive and I have to be careful with earrings. Your family looks adorable. The ballroom dancing looks like fun! I've never been to something like that.

I hear you - clip on earing are painful! I prefer the magnetized studs, but those get lost and still hurt.
I didn't notice the man-hand until you pointed it out. Maybe it could be photoshopped out? It's a nice picture of you and your mom.
Looks like you had a lot of fun watching the dancers!

So neat! What dazzling earings. You pulled them off just fine. (Ha that sounds funny since you did actually pull them off! lol!) K, I'm a dork. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful pics!
