Dancing with the Stars!!!

I use to dread Mondays, the weekend was over and the daily grind started all too soon, waking up before the sun was out, and feeling like I could use another full nights' sleep. As hard as a mommy can be some times, there are some awesome pros of being a stay at home mom: I don't have kids in school yet, I get to stay home and bum around the house, cleaning whatever needs attention, and playing with the kiddies and doing fun activities with them.

Now I look forward to Mondays, it no longer is a day that is packed with a busy schedule and responsibilities to attend to. We get to have Family Home Evening, and do something spiritual and something fun. Then the kiddies go down for the night, and that's when I get to kick back for a little bit because my favorite TV shows begin!

I get a total kick out of watching Dancing with the Stars. I secretly wish I could be up there dancing with the professionals! It looks like they are having so much fun. My mom put me in dance when I was 7 years old, so for a long time, that was my life. I went on tours with the dancing group to Hawaii and Japan when I was 9 years old. The dance company we were in took us to San Francisco to perform for the halftime show for the 49ers, and to Los Angeles for the L.A. Lakers. It kept me out of trouble and gave me an opportunity to develop great coordination skills. Anyway, I just love watching other people dance, I want to be the one having to learn a new dance each week and get all dressed up, but not as 'hoochie' as the girls can get (toned down about 100 notches!)

My favorite professional dancer is Julianne Hough, she's been the reigning champ for the past two seasons. Her choreography is phenomenal, she is amazingly talented. I do have to admit though, that last season was WAY better than this one, but I'll take what I can get!! Another fun one to watch right now is Priscilla Presley. I am so fascinated with the fact that she was married to the one and only Elvis, his legacy seems like centuries ago though, which makes it even more interesting that his widow is still alive, and young enough to be dancing still!!!

I think that their are some brilliant TV shows out there right now, and Dancing with the Stars is one of them. Another brilliant one is American Idol, and that will have to be it's own post...can't wait for Tuesdays either!!! But for now, I'm glad its Monday and excited to watch some great dancing tonight!

I'm having a worst case of the Mondays today... but reading this post made me feel better.

Julianne is also my fav - (and Max - who quit this season), but I feel bad she's stuck w/ Adam. Hopefully she can whip into a good dancer.

Happy Monday!

I would have to say that TV is one of my guilty pleasures too. It's so fun to have an escape into something other than my life.

I just finished watching. I love Marlee Matlin. I think she's so lovely and I love how she speaks with her hands. I also enjoy watching Kristi Yamaguchi. She's amazing. It will be fun to see how everyone does. I just think it would be a blast to dance like that!
