And We'll Be Dancin' The Night Away

OK, so we won't be dancing, but we'll will be watching some dancing tonight. Remember, I told you my weekend plans involved tu-tus and tights. Yep, that's right, I'm going to the ballet! I love, love, love the ballet. I danced when I was younger, and I have even been known to take an adult dance class or two. So, I was pleasantly surprised when George said he had gotten us tickets to see this:

(Yes, that dude does have shorts on. They're just difficult to see in this picture ;) It's the spring performance of Ballet Des Moines. I have to admit that I am something of a ballet snob. I get crabby if the dancing isn't as good as I think it should be. But, I will tell you that we have been to a Ballet Des Moines performance before, and it was very good. I think they have an arrangement with some of the larger ballet companies across the country, including the Tulsa Ballet, and they get some of their dancers from those larger troupes. In any event, I am so excited. I get to dress up and go to the ballet. I can't think of many things that would make for better Friday night activities.

And, to make my Friday even better, my best friend from college is driving in tonight. She and her sweet, darling five year-old son are coming to hang out with us for the weekend! Yippie! She lives in Illinois now, and we don't get to see each other very often, but this is twice in the last few months she has been back to visit. I have no idea what we are going to do, but I am completely certain that it will involve lots of food and lots of laughing because that's what we do. It will probably also involve a trip or two to Target and the mall. We are women after all.!

So, I am terrible about taking pictures, but I will try to remember to take at least a few this weekend. I hope you all have a terrific weekend!!
