Tango Tips/Medal Ball 2015

Well it’s almost tango time.  I thought I would just post it now because I’m pretty sure I won’t be thinking about anything else.  I have the dress, it looks amazing.  I went and got it altered so it fits just right.  The dress was $20 and the alterations were $49.  Maria had them make me a gorgeous deep red sash that sits above the waist.  She told them she wanted it tight, well it is real tight.  The husband, as usual could not get it clipped.  He just has no co-ordination with his hands.  And I had no patience with his fumbling around.  He said, “Just do it from the front and slip it around the back.”  I said, “No, you don’t understand.  There is no room for slipping it around to the back.  I can’t even breath.”  I’m pretty sure with all of the spanx and sashes, my head is turning red because all the blood is being forced up and can’t get back down.  Now I’m not really that heavy, but 5 kids takes its toll and middle age doesn’t help either (and the brownie brittle I have stashed in my nightstand 🙂 ).  Let’s just say I look really healthy.   I will try to post a picture of how I look when I leave, and I’m not being vain but if I dance half as good as I am going to look, I will be happy.   Again not being vain, I have always been blessed with good looks and if the dancing doesn’t go as good as I want, I can always just dazzle them with my sense of style ❤ It has been so much fun preparing for this.  I didn’t realize it just until now how much fun I’m having.  My friend is coming over and she is going to do my hair and make-up.  Then I’ll get dressed and try to take a picture.  Michael has been so supportive as usual.  He just smiles and loves to see me doing this.  Last night we went dancing with the people who have been teaching me the tango.  They really are just the nicest people and Houston (my tango partner) is a really good dancer.  We danced our routine last night in front of everyone and it went pretty well.  Michael said I looked really good and my feet were spot on with Houston’s when we danced.  I’m hoping that he will start taking some lessons with me and we can dance a routine together at next year’s Medal Ball.  He really has some natural talent and he is in really good shape so who knows anything is possible 🙂  I am really looking forward to this.  I didn’t realize this until now, but I have been preparing for this my whole life.  Everyone in my family has been a performer at one time or another and I have spent my life getting them ready for their shows.  My 2 guys do this for a living, they are professional dancers.  This is the first time for me being on the stage and I can’t wait. Michael did mention last night that this dancing thing is cutting into our hockey time.  Right, I know but I’m sure our Blackhawks will handle the Wild until we get back.  We did get to watch our Blackhawk’s last night.  We caught the end of the 1st game of round #2 in the Stanley Cup Series.  They are now playing the Minnesota Wild.  I don’t really want to give them second billing so I’ll post after the game tomorrow, but they won the 1st game !!!!  Woo Hoo  Again I need another something other than Woo Hoo.  Please help me people 🙂  Oh and the weather is great for Medal Ball. Wish me luck, fellow blogger’s

  1. Well, you made me smile and laugh and chuckle as I read it …. and I can absolutely feel what you’re going through. My favorite is the cost of the dress, then the alterations! But then the spanx and all that tightness takes away from the pleasure of the dance! I can’t go, but my club is going to Puerto Rico for competition in June. Sounds like so much fun. Good luck, good luck, good luck!

    • Thanks Ginger, You know I was dating my husband when I was in high school. He was a junior in college. I wanted him to take me to the prom. He wouldn’t b/c he said he was too old. No one at my high school believed I even had a boyfriend, OMG 🙂 Every year at Prom time, I never let him forget that he did not take me. He said, “Will this make up for not taking you to prom?” I thought a couple of minutes about it and I said, “No.” 🙂 I’ll make sure you see the pic before I go. Thanks for the support 😉 Love ya, ❤
