Dancing With the Stars in NYC

I'm on my way to New York City. I have finally made the time to redeem a fabulous Christmas present I received from my mother two years ago - a mother-daughter trip to the Big Apple! Our plan is to shop, catch a Broadway show, and get a haircut with Judy at Devachan, an incredible hair salon that specializes in curly hair. Then, I'm sure we’ll shop some more. On Sunday, I'll be performing a song at the graduation for Mama Gena's Mastery Class (consider it the ultimate singing telegram), and on Monday night, Mom and I have signed up for an evening of dancing with the stars. Really.  

Sally drove us to it. You see, my friend, Sally Blenkey, is a huge inspiration to me. She owns a super successful tanning business called Brazil Bronze; she is incredibly funny (I so want her to have her own television show - she's that funny!); she has two adorable girls with the cutest names, Georgie and Charlie); she passionately pursues ballroom dancing; and she's married to a sweet and sexy professional ballroom dancer named Alex, who starred in the documentary Mad Hot Ballroom.  

When I learned that Alex and Sally were offering a special ballroom dancing workshop, I knew Mom and I had to go. It's going to be like having an old-fashioned dance card, only instead of dancing with awkward guys who only know how shift their weight from their left foot to their right foot and back to their left foot again, we're going to dance with champion ballroom dancers! Now, Mom really knows how to cut a rug, and I'm sure she'll have a great time jitterbugging with the pros. As for me, I must confess that I'm a little nervous about hitting the dance floor. But how could I miss out on "An Evening of Dance Seduction", especially one presented by Alex and Sally?

I'll look forward to reporting in when I return back to Wilmington. Will I discover that I really do have two left feet? Or will I be dusting off my dancing shoes more often?
