Halloween fun!!!!!

Last night I participated in a Thriller Dance.I have always loved that video and wanted to learn the dance.A group of people all different ages learned the dance to perform . We were all dressed up like zombies,it was so cool( I am the school girl zombie in the pink skirt)!!!!! We had a large audience in downtown Kenosha watching( my boys,hubby and Paloma were my biggest fans).I have never done anything like this before.My Zumba instructor coordinated the dance and I am definitely glad I did it. It was out of my comfort zone !!!!! I consider myself shy so I needed a little push from hubby to participate,lol!!! Here are photos
from last night . Today was our official "Trick or Treat Day".It was bitter cold outside (and last night too) . We trick or treated for a while (until we froze)and ended off the day at a Halloween party . I dressed up like Marie Antoinette today and my boys dressed up as a King and a Knight
. I found a cool wig too match a costume I bought a few years ago.I went from a zombie to a beauty queen overnight!!!! We had a full weekend.We get to dress up all over again on Halloween since we are having a small party for the kids!!!

I just love how these turned out!!!! Hubby and I picked up an old vintage wagon that my dad had brought home years ago when the kids were little.Our family has had it at least 20 years( it is alot older) and love the patina of it all rusted from sitting outside in Chicago weather!!!

United States of Bacon

On Monday friends of ours had a taping of a TV show at their diner!!!!!! My hubby and I color and cut the owners hair (Julie) so it was fun to be invited to the taping. Our boys were excited and we got to eat breakfast at a cool vintage diner!!!!!!! The show is on the Discovery channel and it is called "United States of Bacon". If you are ever in Kenosha ,you need to eat at "Frank's Diner" it is located in the downtown area off the Lake. The boys love going there they get the "rock star" treatment!!!!LOL Here are a few photos of our fun time there!!!!

I am waiting to go to my Zumba class!! It has become one of the highlights of my week,lol!!!!! It really is a fun workout and stress reliever . Unfortunately I missed the class on Monday but the good news is I can actually make a Sat. class this week. I was going to go for a new record 3 times this week but it will now end up being 2 times.Oh well!!!!! The truth is this is a very high intensity class and I am lucky to keep up!!!! I am going with Paloma (who is 21).We usually end up laughing a lot at some of the moves.If you haven't tried a class you should ,basically you feel like you are in a Latin dance club.It really tightens your mid section too.See you after Zumba!!!!!!
