Dancing Queen

by Heather on May 25, 2010

This morning I danced like no one was watching…well, probably because no one was except for my pups.  And they won’t tell anyone how traumatizing it must have been ;)

Last night when we got home I was SO EXCITED to see that our peonies are about to bloom!

And it’s looking like any day now! When we moved in last year I noticed these bright magenta flowers came in practically overnight, and they were gorgeous.  Then a hail storm came and killed them all, but this year I’m going to pick some when they bloom and bring them up to work :)

Dinner last night was smoked pork and corn crazy crust pizza (use the recipe on this post, but subbed pork instead of chicken):

Plus a big salad with romaine, carrot, red bell pepper, and light sundried tomato vinaigrette:

All together now!

Dessert was pancake truffles from Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point!

They were pretty good!  I liked the warm, ooey, gooey bananas in the middle the best :)  We watched Dancing With the Stars and then I went straight upstairs and went to bed!  I was exhausted and figured I’d be more likely to get up and work out in the morning if I went to bed early.  This morning I got up and did a pyramid upper body workout and then got ready for work.  Y’all, my arms were shaking so bad when I took this picture!  Apparently I’m weak-sauce again :)

I love reading Bon Appetit!  Can’t wait to get some recipe ideas for dinner tomorrow night with our new friends Drew & Rachael :)  Breakfast was the usual (and fabulous) PB & Chocolate GM:

I know I’m in a serious rut with these things, but they’re so good and I look forward to drinking them!  Plus they hold me over all morning, which is great.

So, as you might have been able to guess from the very first line of this post, I’m not much of a dancer (or a singer for that matter, which sucks because those are things I LOVE to do…in the privacy of my own home when Nate is gone :))  What about you?  Are you a dancer?  Or a singer?  Or both?  What kind of music makes you want to get up and shake your groove thang?! I love singing to ballads, but dancing requires a beat and some SOUL…anything older from MOTOWN and, at the moment, ABBA songs from Mamma Mia! are what get me up and moving :)

Aww I can’t wait to see the Peonies fully bloomed!
hahaha I totally dance when nobody is watching (that’s when my moves are the best) And I try to dance on other occasions but I’m not sooo good at it! HAHA
And singing? Only in the car and shower!

Trust me, Heather…if I started singing OR dancing, there would be some very severe traumas indeed….I can’t even imagine what torture I would inflict if I did them both! lol.

No shame, no shame! Nice peonies. I just took a whole bunch of peony pics from a botanical garden I visited.

I dance and sing….when noone is around and when I go to zumba! Ida Corr vs Fedde Le Grand. I go all nuts!

Peonies are my FAVORITE flower! I love the color of yours! Mine bloomed white :)

I love the why they make my house smell :)

I danced for 18 years- ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, etc. I miss it so much! I wish I could sing, but…not so much. I pretend, tho. :)

That pizza looks delish!

I sing and dance randomly… not well, but it’s fun. :)

I’m not a singer or a dancer! But that doesn’t mean I won’t try! LOL I love the idea of “dance like no one is watching”.

PS – I’m making your Insanity Bars to bring for our cabin trip with friends this weekend. I sent the link to Peter and he said “Oh good lord those look good!!!” Clearly we are excited. :D

Oh gosh I love peonies! You’re so lucky!

I am a singer – I used to study classical voice – but I have zero coordination. Cannot dance. I try anyway, just don’t get in my way :)

I do not sing in any circumstances and I myself think I’m not a very good dancer, but so far no one has laughed at me :D

I only dance in front of animals too. Except for Zumba. For some reason that is one place where I can let loose with/in front of others. But singing? Never except my car alone. I just can not sing at all!

Oh I dance around like a crazy person when I’m alone (except for the poor pups). When I’m working out I sometimes have to stop myself and refocus on the weights and not the dancing LOL.
