After our first playoff game, some friends and I were in search of a fun Saturday night activity--something out of the norm. And I think our efforts were successful after we (well, it was Marshall actually) landed upon the idea of salsa dancing! Turns out the Taco Milagro in River Oaks hosts a free salsa dancing night every Saturday starting at nine.
So, we (me, Julianne, Travis, Tyler, Marshall, and Del) put on our dancing attire and headed to the restaurant. Although we may not have had perfect rhythm or "Dancing With The Stars"-esque skill, we had the time of our lives inventing our own steps. We ended up enjoying ourselves so much that we came back for round two the following weekend.
We're incapable of taking very many serious pictures.
This photo captures the night perfectly.
"I whip my hair back and forth!"
Marshall workin' up a sweat as he tears up the dance floor. Really though, he was actually pretty good.
Did I mention we met some friends? Must have left out that minor detail. We befriended these two women, Ashanti and Courtney, and had a priceless conversation with them. They taught us their motto: "1, 2, 3, HATTTAAZZ!" and gave us extremely worthwhile life advice. It was so rich. We even invited them to our next playoff game. AND THEY CAME THE NEXT WEEKEND. No joke, there they were in the MHS football stands at our game all the way in Katy. It may have been the highlight of my senior year. Look! I even have proof.
Anyway, our night (well, Julianne and I's anyway) didn't end here. We were starved, so we headed to the only place in town that could satisfy our midnight munchies at this hour--Mamma's Cafe. Liz and Natalie met us there and we ended our night with a little Austin Powers viewing and a good old fashioned slumber party. To say that I was a little sleepy that Sunday would be an understatement...
It's finally December in half an hour! I can't wait for the stockings to be hung, help my mom adorn the tree with ornaments, and make a Christmas list that will be on the blog before you know it! My mom has already made her famous Christmas candy cracker recipe, and I think they're calling my name, so good evening 'til tomorrow!
