Hosting a Christmas Dance! - Turn your sound down!! :-)

1985

If you read White Spray Paint
and I certainly hope you do...
You will already know that we are
in the throws of planning a
Christmas dance.
Not just any dance...
It's a recreation of a Christmas dance
we hosted in 1985.

Now rarely does anyone like looking back at
old photos where we see ourselves in goofy
hairdos and clothes (mother told us we'd be sorry
and after all these years... I will admit she was RIGHT!)
But this dance was totally the "bomb" so
over a Mexican dinner which included a few margaritas
we decided to host the dance again... same hosts.

Laura has reviewed the refreshments we are each
bringing, but we also have to come up with
a sweet as well as a savory "surprise".
Mine will be muffin paper cups of
bread pudding topped with bourbon sauce
and also I will prepare
shrimp butter served with crackers.

We'll dance to tunes from the '60's, '7o's and '80's.
Our aging joints will scream out in pain.
Our bunions will holler "stop"!
Our ears will be ringing throughout the night...
and possibly the next day.
All I can say is...

Bring it on!!


I know you're wondering... I am fifth from the left, middle row... black sparkly top and dig those false eyelashes! Miss Laura is on the far right. Now don't tell her I spilled the beans!!

It looks like you all were having a great time, so why not go for it again. You were lovely then as you are now. Love, love, love that song. I turned my vol up. Haven't heard that song in ages.
Hope your weekend is great.

Hi Karen
WHAT FUN! That is going to be so much fun I can just tell. I will definitely have to see your AFTER 1985 pictures. It sounds like you'll be serving up some real yummies.
Shrimp butter? Will you share that one. I actually like the sound of the other one too. I'd love the recipes.
have a wonderful time.
