Watching Dancing with the Stars. When I told a long time friend of mine she said, "You're joking, Right?" Well, this got me thinking of why I love it so much.
My mother's side of the family were crazy dancers. My Mom and her brother Walt would win every dance competition they entered. Uncle Walt wanted to be a professional dancer but being the youngest he was stuck on the farm taking care of Grams.
Mom gets engaged to Bob. Big Barn Wedding planned and poor Bob doesn't know the first thing about dancing. Dancing Boot Camp begins. Let's just say Dad liked to joke that basic training was easier and he should know as he went through it 5 times. That story HERE.
Mom didn't stop with Bob. We all learned and loved to dance. When the floors need polishing we would put on our socks and Elvis on the record player and twist the day away! Really fun. No one considered it work.
So why do I love Dancing With the Stars because it brings back all the wonderful memories of my parents and dancing with them. And, when Bruno (one of the judges) goes into his antics I feel like Mom is setting next to me agreeing with him!
This couple is not as good as my Mom and Dad but I'm prejudice and they did win first place. Watch HERE!
So in Mom and Dad's memory I made this pin I call Sputnik! (Click Pic for Details)
