i finally broke down and bought some dancing shoes. last night was the last in our 3rd ballroom dancing class--we have been taking lessons now for almost a year, which is just amazing. time is FLYING! but anyway, since there's no end in sight to the dancing thing, i decided to go ahead and get some actual gear before class starts again on august 16th. it's funny--i am viewing this as kind of an athletic shoe purchase. it's gotten to the point that i am performance limited because i don't have the right shoes. and what's cool is that THESE are the right shoes! girly strappy cute shoes are the right ones for something i can get exercise doing! whoo hoo! so yeah. now i am waiting--the shoes should be here tomorrow, and i am growinfg IMPATIENT. let's hear it for ebay, however--i got these shoes at wholesale cost. whoo hoo!
