Dancing the Night Away
After a classy dinner at Arby's, last night Will and I and our friends Aaron and Erika went to the Stake's Gold & Green Ball. And I have to say it was probably one of the best church dances we've ever been to.
They really went all out for this. They had a real live big band that played all sorts of old tunes from Moonlight Seranade to Sing, Sing, Sing with a Swing. And the decorations were incredible - they had this chandelier in the middle of the dancefloor that they made out of sparkly twine and white lights. And since the theme was "Night at the Oscars", we got our picture taken by the papperazi on the red carpet on the way in.
It was so much fun - and it was really a blast to dance with Will again. It's so sad how there aren't as many chances to dance together after you get married (beforehand seems like you go to church singles dances every weekend). There is something incredibly magical about dancing - last night as I was looking into Will's eyes I just felt all gooey inside. I'm such a lucky girl!
They also had the Northwest Ballroom Company come and do a 30 min floorshow for us. Oh my goodness, after watching them I never wanted to be a dancer so badly in my life as I did last night.
