Sweet Sixteen

We had a smashing time at the ball on Friday night. No, please don't interpret that as We got smashed. It was a cash bar and we opted out. But we had a fantastic time!!

The food was good (I know I'm getting old when the food is the first thing I bring up), company at our table was interesting, but the band was GREAT. I don't know who they were - some local group - but they did a really great Prince. We stayed for several songs (a mix of 70's through 90's), but didn't dance. I'm a fart that way. Hunny kept trying to get me out on the floor, but I really enjoy watching the crowd. I was amazed when the entire dance floor was doing the Electric Slide (Hunny had to tell me what that was) in unison. It was a beautiful thing.

I enjoyed watching the older couples (see, those "older" couples are just a little older than me) dance their hearts out to the 70's stuff. And when they did Play That Funky Music, I was in heaven. Not because I really like that song, but just to watch everyone out there enjoying themselves tremendously, singing the entire time. Mmm. Just something about it.

I do not like to dance. not one bit. I love music and I love to move, but that's where it stops. But I love to watch other people enjoy themselves! Silly things, like video games - I love to watch other people play video games if they're enjoying themselves, even though I have zero interest. I don't know if that's considered voyeuristic or what. But it's an entrancing thing to see others so obviously caught up in something that fulfills them. Is that so wrong?

So yes, out 16th anniversary was wonderful. And yes, I was kissed. And no, I can't give any further details. :)

Until I write again ...

Awwwww! What a nice anniversary! You look bee-yoo-ti-ful!
I don't dance either, simply because I look like a big 'ol dork when I do!
Is that enough exclamation points for ya?

Alison said...

Congratulations on 16 years! I'm glad you had a nice evening.

Sarah said...

Happy Anniversary! What a lovely photo.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you visit again :)

Melissa said...

Oh man, you shoulda danced at least once. Sounds like you guys had a blast. I miss stuff like this, I need a ball...or for someone to get married so I can 'shake my groove thing.' :)

Happy Anniversary!!

Flea said...

You guys are all so sweet. :) I wish now that I would have danced, but it's so awkward, dancing, and you can't watch other people when you're so hyper-focused on not doing the Elaine out on the floor!

Lisa, that's because you are a big dork! But I'm a bigger one!!! There, that's enough exclamation points.

Happy Anniversary!!! I'm glad you got to go to a ball, it sounds like so much fun :) I want something to dress up for. I don't dance either, but I can be persuaded... if we ever went anywhere that there was dancing. I do enjoy people watching too though (you would have never guessed that would you LOL)

Flea said...

No, Candace, I never would have guessed. :) I hope you get to dress up for something soon.

What a great looking couple you two are. Happy 16th!
It looks like you got the shrug done too! Bonus.

Flea said...

Thanks! I actually wound up having fun with modifying the shrug to fit my shoulders. It kept falling off, so I dug through my bag o'tricks and came up with self covering buttons, which I applied at the shoulders after pleating to shrink. It looked very intentional and gave it flair. :)

Karen said...

Happy 16th! You've been married one year longer than we have. You guys looks like you had such a great time!

Flea!!!! A princess at the ball! You know that's right up my alley! Can you email me the pic of you and your hubby? I can't see it very well on here. It comes out dark. I think it's my computer. And I'm SHOCKED you didn't know about the electric slide! I LOVE doing that! Dorky looking or not! lol.....we actually did the electric slide to "Shackles" at one of the Bible study kickoffs we did! lol....I need to catch up with you. It's been too long! Miss you!!!! Oh, and Happy Anniversary!
