Let's Face The Monday - And Dance!!

Hello all, and welcome to another fine week.

"Why, Ellie," you say (or at least in my head you do), "Why are you so insanely cheerful? It's Monday, don't you know."

Yeah, I know. But the truth is, last week was one fine week. I mean, aside from the weeks that I birthed my children (and David barely qualifies because I got meningitis and spent the first week of his life in the hospital drugged out of my mind), I experienced what had to be the best damn week of my life.

I am not kidding.

Three completely unrelated, and completely terrific things happened, and two of the three are quite literally life-changing.

No, I don't have a boyfriend. Yet.

And I'm not pregnant. Get that thought right the hell out of your mind. I'm not going to elaborate on what's happened as of yet for reasons I will later reveal in a blog post dedicated solely to this awesomesauce week that was. Suffice it to say, I spent the weekend with an ear-to-ear grin and a step that was noticeably lighter, and it's carried forward to today.

So let's dance. And today, we're going to dance with the men who dance well. Very, very well. And I do love a man who can dance.

Let's start with three hot Irish lads. I'm going to put up the YouTube version, because I actually like it better than the Facebook version even though the sound is wonky. The sound dips in and out, but that lets you hear the footwork more clearly, and it is AMAZING. If the sound fluctuations bug you too much, watch to the Facebook version.

Whew. Is it warm in here???

Next, it's one of my all-time favorite dance numbers from a musical: The Barn Raising Dance from Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. Such a great mix of dance and acrobatics - and those costumes! The color! *sigh*

What's that? You'd like to see three guys in high heels doing a Spice Girls medley? Can do!

And let's not forget the magic of the 5th grade talent show dancers:

And finally, we'll end with the magic of "Old Men Groove"

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope your week is bright and wonderful!
