In my fancy-shmancy dance shoes the hubs gave me for Christmas 3 years ago.
Wonder if I'll be the only mama there.

yes- one time thing. three hours of Fosse dancing. I'm excited but scared that I'll look like an idiot. At least I'm going with 3 friends.

That sounds like a lot of fun!!! Although I don't know if I'd be brave enough to try it - I've never had much ability to dance. :) I hope you have an awesome time next week!!
