This past Saturday night at the lake, we had an end of summer bash and it was fantastic! Some of the best times are when things are impromptu as was this little get together. The night was warm, the moon was just a sliver of gold in the sky and the lake water was refreshing after dancing on the beach all night.
We are an eclectic group of friends, whose music tastes run the gamut of all genres. But Saturday night a radio station was playing all dance music and we had a blast! Mind you this 40 something crowd was hurting something fierce the next day, but it was soooo worth it! LOL! Since it was so warm and we all worked up a good sweat dancing, most of us also ended up in the lake several times fully clothed and some not so fully clothed just to cool down. It was one of those night were you couldn't think of another place you would rather be.....at least I couldn't.
The kids had a great time to, we rented one of those jumping things, so the younger kids were all over that.....while the teenagers looked at us adults, with eyes a rollin'! LOL.... like we have all lost our minds.....we all knew that someday when they were our age and something like music took them all back to their own youth they would be dancing fools too! LOL! That is one of the perks about being an adult.....we couldn't care less how crazy we looked, we were having a great time!
I am often taken aback when I discover someone has a preconceived notion about me such as being a prissy girl who doesn't like to get down and dirty (Not in that sense of the phrase........minds out of the gutter please! LOL) They think just because my hair is always done, my nails are always painted and I wear make up (light) from time to time that I don't like to just...let my hair and my guard down and have a good time..... these are usually people that were not from my childhood or my wild teenage years and think of my as some kind of soccer Mom......and that just makes me laugh......I didn't care Saturday night that I was having a really good hair day and that I just jumped into the lake or that my make up was smudged or that I woke up with a lot of sand in my bed....sometimes you just have to have fun! lol
It was a great night to put your worries aside and just "be" again....it was a great way to end the summer with and to remember sometimes you just have to dance you cares away! lol So what I'm still paying for it Monday morning.......like I said earlier...."It was sooooo worth it!" lol lol lol
