I Just Want to Dance

I bought these pants at Old Navy for $10, how crazy of a good deal is that?! But one problem, they are too big...anyone know how to alter pants? You can't tell from the photos but they do have this flower print on them, in the same color as the pants, obviously, but it makes them unique...I'm determined to make these work and not spend a ton of money getting them altered. I figure I might try on my own since they were only $10, if I mess up it's not breaking the bank. Thoughts?

Sunday was the first day I was feeling okay from the flu, so I threw on some make-up and this outfit and there ya go. I was actually going to wear a different outfit that I found on pinterest, but I left my black blazer at work, so I couldn't recreate the outfit, darn! Maybe some other time...after I alter my pants. Hey I altered the shirt for my Halloween Costume...I can do it with pants too right? Right?

So funny how when I'm doing my make-up I feel like I am wearing so much, but then in picture it barely shows when you see all these fashion bloggers and their make-up looks so great, they must have SOOO much on...crazy.

Love this necklace that I bought at Loft last month, on sale of course :)

Now on to some Dancing Stuff:

Quick note: The title of the post...back in 2005 we were at a wedding of a family friend. The night was dying down and we told my brother we were all leaving, he looks at us straight faced and says "but I just want to DAAAANNCCE!" and starts swaying back and forth, elbows bent...sort of like this, but way slower.

Back to my post:

My Mom loves dancing...Dad not so much. But for their 42nd wedding anniversary, my Dad bought my mom some ballroom dance lessons...and get this, he said he would be her partner. On Friday when they came over they wanted to show off their new skills. I don't think my mom's smile could get any bigger.

Next wedding they go to, they'll be tearing up the dance floor! You go parents!

This one is a quick one, but Mini Fox wanted in on the dancing action.

I think our girl was meant to dance. Ever since we turned on Angelina Ballerina she's been obsessed. Like the first 2 minutes of the show she's copying the dance moves on the show, she's a natural.

Some of her dance moves...everyone does their dance moves on the couch right?

This is turning out to be her signature move, she tilts like this and twirls in circles. Cutest thing EVER!

Any fun(ny) dance stories you want to share?
