DANCE PARTY FRIDAY! Gold Pants Edition

Before we kick of Dance Party Friday, I gotta share a blogger award that was sent my way this week.

Wendy of the Wendy & Adam blog gave me a Stylish Blogger award. Thank you! Y’all should check out her blog, it chronicles her life as a grad student, married to a firefighter! I’m not exactly sure what style is being referred to – my blog? What I’m wearing while I’m blogging? HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT I’M WEARING WHILE I BLOG?! And where is my tin foil hat?

No, I truly appreciate the award. Seriously. SRSLY. There’s a hitch – you gotta pass it on to 15 other bloggers. Um, I’m not sure I have that many peeps to pass it on to, and I don’t know that they’ll even see this. But this is my blog and MY rules, so I will pass it on to blogs I like and think you should read, ok?

For those of you who have Facebook fan pages based on your personal page, and have experienced limitations in being able to “like” pages, comment as your fan page, etc – Facebook has an new option that will allow you to switch back and forth between your personal profile and any other pages based on it. Just go up to Account, then select Use As Facebook Page, and pick the page you want to “act” as. You then have the ability to like things as your shop (and it will actually show up on your SHOP page, not your personal page) and more! You can switch back and forth as much as you like. Thank you, Facebook!

Ok! Now – let’s get down to business.

My buddy Alicia sent me the video below, and the rest is history. Watch this video and you will laugh. You will SHAKE IT. You will wonder if you saw her on Yo Gabba Gabba (the answer is yes). But most of all? YOU WILL WANT THOSE GOLD PANTS.

make it, make it, make it, make it, faster, faster, faster, faster, WORK THROUGH THE PAIN, WORK THROUGH THE PAIN

I think we’re gonna go with the quirky theme today. They Might Be Giants may have been one of the soundtracks to your high school years (they were for mine – run out and buy Flood if you don’t have it already!) but they also make tons of kids music . . . kids music that doesn’t make your ears bleed. They’ve done lots of kid show themes, too! This is a favorite in our house. I mean, it has a DISCO CLAP. Come on.

Why yes, it is true that I went to their concert in the Summer of 2009. And? I have to say, I was a little shocked at how the crazy feelings of being overwhelmed when hearing their music hit me in the face, just like it did in 1988. Also? HOT.

For some reason, I couldn’t get this hilarious dance instructional video to post correctly, so you’ll just need to use the link.


It's not too late to enter Annie's giveaway at her Wattlebird blog! You could win 4 FREE cozies. Hurry up, the giveaway closes this weekend!

I know. I remember arguing with my uncle, telling him how talented they all were. THEY EACH PLAY AN INSTRUMENT DURING ONE SONG IN THEIR CONCERT, UNCLE RON! Geez.

That concert was crazy. It was thousands of women in their 20s, 30s and 40s dressed in their skankiest outfits, trying to catch a New Kid! But when the lights went down, we started screaming along with the rest of them, and then when they busted out onstage? Oh My Dear Sweet Lord. I screamed myself hoarse. It was fun. :)

Thank you for giving me an award Ash! We would totally rock those gold pants! speaking of crazy pants, I came across our old senior routine outfit while at my parents' house.. sparkly blue teeny top and silver genie pants slit open on both sides.. what the heck were we thinking?

and um...NKOTB...*scream!* :D

The hair on that woman plus those glasses MIGHT be even better than the gold pants! :)

Thanks for posting "Craft Talk". These women are my new musical heroes and I think I just found my theme song for 2011. Craft On!
