The stunning-ness of high shoes and colored soles.

Sorry for such a long time to post.

I was in a store and when these highhhhhhh shoes caught my eye, I was glued.

I was watching, "So You Think You Can Dance" and the BEST DANCE of the night (and frankly, one of the best dances ever choregraphed and danced...ever!) was choreographed by ridiculously great Mia Michaels and danced to a beautiful song called, "Koop Island Blues." I never had an opinion on Mia Michaels before this; but after this dance, I love her work! The song made me think of Gene Kelly and took me back to nights in Paris and New York. It was cat-like and called of Elizabeth Taylor in that slip-dress in Tennessee Williams, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."
Intriguing. Absolutely intriguing.

And in My Tutu no less

My 22nd birthday!!!

For my 22 birthday a couple days ago, I wore a tutu because I turned two-two. :)

My friends bought me a crown. I thought, "Well, I'm wearing a tutu, might as well go all out!" Everyone at the restaurant and everywhere else we went, immediately knew it was my birthday. People were really cool this night and told me they liked my tutu. I started the day off at 8 AM having a wonderful breakfast at the beach. It was a perfect birthday, celebrating it with the people I love (from breakfast all the way to the after-dinner parties). I solved a rubik's cube a few millions times in between too. ;)

Saw Dirty Dancing tonight, it was a birthday gift from my family. It was unbelievable! The character Johnny had huge shoes to fill (being Patrick Swayze's); he did a great job that left no one in the audience wanting. When the door beside my row was slammed open and "Johnny" strutted down towards the stage, I died! When the notes of the last FAMOUS dance scene began and Johnny said the infamous line, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" the crowd went wiiild!! It was great. The play ended. Standing ovation was given.

Little Red Riding Hood

Last week I had a dinner with my favorite people in the world. :) It was a dressy place; so we all got to dress to the nines (which I love). Afterwards we all went out dancing and stayed out til 4. It was a lot of fun! I love these shoes. That fringe adds a little wildness to the equation. This restaurant makes me feel like I am in the deep South, hearing the frogs croak on an infamously humid Southern night (though it was a cold night in these pictures).
I'm listening to one of my favorite bands while writing this. Such a beautiful voice, this singer has.
