Thank you everyone who came out yesterday to celebrate with me! It was a pop-rockin’, chocolatey cupcakein’, balloon battin’ BONANZA!!! Truly, I could not have asked for a better way to commemorate my first 30 years on planet earth:
As those of you who were there know, I made a special mix of songs connected with memories of dancing. Some as simple as groovin’ in the living room with my family or in the car with friends. Others a little more specific. Here are those songs, and the best of the backstories:
#3: In 1983 I was a flower girl at my uncle’s wedding. When this song came on during the reception, I ran to the middle of the dancefloor and COMPLETELY SPAZZED OUT, screaming Ghostbusters at the top of my lungs while jerking like a maniac. And yes, there is video evidence.
#9: The name and theme song of my 5th grade bowling team. Many a New Kids dance in the parking lot of Merribowl.
#12: 8th grade talent show dance routine. And yes, there is video evidence.
#17: Two words: Senior Prom.
#19: You won’t find this song anywhere because it’s my brother’s old band, but picture me doing the monkey in a red-fringed flapper dress and go-go boots on a stage.
#21: Won free tickets to see these guys in concert, and some random guy in the audience taught me how to swing dance.
#24: Got drunk at a friend’s wedding and did a little booty-poppin’ with someone’s slightly terrified (and underage) nephew or cousin. And yes, there is video evidence.
#29: Threw this bad boy on a ddpp mix a few months ago and shit got TRIBAL up in the studio. Couldn’t resist reliving the moment.
Big love to you all!!! Hope to do it again in another 30 years 🙂
