Halloween Party to Recital...What a Weekend!!!

Saying this has been a busy weekend for me would be an understatement!  LOL, I'm used to being busy but this weekend I got very little sleep-I don't know how I got through Sunday.  So when I received the official message from the schools saying that they would be closed on Monday, I was jumping for joy!!!  Now, lets start in the beginning.....

Halloween is on Wednesday, so this weekend was our opportunity to party!!  Some friends were hosting a Halloween Party at a club, Columbus 72, so we got a babysitter(my sister-in-law; lol) and went to party.  It isn't often that we get a night out, very difficult to find babysitting now so a night out for just the two of us happens once, maybe twice a year.  Saturday began with groceries, last minute shopping for my daughter's recital, then dropping off the kids at my sister-in-law's house to spend the night.  Once we were back home, it was time to get ready.  We dressed up as Hawk Eye and Black Widow....fairly easy costumes.  I just needed to try to curl my hair, it was already dyed auburn, put on my green contacts and do my make-up.  Hubby just need to get dressed....its so easy for men.....anyway, when we were finally ready we headed to our friend's house for some pre-party drinks....took some pics and then we were on our way to the club.



It was an awesome night of fun, dancing and drinking.....and I drank!  Not as much as others, but enough that by 1 am I was feeling really out of it & sleepy.  I am such a lite weight, lol, but I don't get crazy or nasty....no, no, not me people.....I get sleepy!! Oh, and I also get the giggles....sleepy & happy, that's me-I will laugh at anything, I will laugh and you won't even know what I'm laughing at.  Eventually we got home, since I didn't want to fall asleep at the club, and I don't remember much else except that I slept like a baby :)

At 6 am the next morning, hubby woke up to go pick up the kids at his sister's.  Thank God he let me sleep, by 9 am they were back and with breakfast, yay!!!  I got out of bed-with a horrible headache, ate, showered and went on to do my hair, make-up and then my daughter's hair & make-up.  I double checked all of the costumes and accessories and we left.  We arrived at  the Park Theater at noon, and I set up our spot in the dressing area.  The show started at 1 pm and it started with the graduation, then awards for all of the students from the academy and this is where I run backstage to change my daughter into her first costume.  


Ballet first...


After ballet, it was Jazz......


Flamenco...



 Tap.....


Hip Hop....


Another Jazz dance....


and finally Salsa!!


The show was 6 hours long, but it was a great show!!!  I was exhausted by the end of the night but it was finally over and we went to grab some food and went straight home to watch The Walking Dead! LOL!

Aside from the lack of sleep, I really enjoyed this weekend...watching my baby girl dance her heart out and hubby and I having a great time dressing up and partying with friends!  Can't wait to do it again!!!

This morning I slept until 9:30 am but stayed in bed until 10 am, and I'm still tired.  I could go get cozy under the covers again, but we've been taking down the window air conditioners and getting ready for Hurricane Sandy, which from the sounds I'm hearing its here!!!  The wind out there is crazy!!!  Luckily, we still have power so hopefully we will make it through this without a problem, even though hubby already has the generator ready in case we do lose power.  So for now, I am happy that thanks to this storm the kids had no school so there was no 5 am wake up call and we were all able to rest.  I really needed this, I slept, we ordered Chinese take-out and have been watching the news and movies.  Nice and relaxing day!
