Happy 32nd Christine!

Yesterday was my best friend (of 17 years') 32nd birthday.  I asked her if she wanted to come over and play Dance Central on our new Kinect since she had so much fun dancing with Just Dance on her mom's Wii at Christmas.  She said yes, and all of our besties arrived to dance their pants off last night!

Ian got paid for both shows over New Years so he bought me a Kinect with his money as a "thank you for letting the band practice at our house each week."  I was SO excited!  I think about going dancing (to horrible top 40's music) at least once a week, and I especially miss going out with my girlfriends and dancing.  No one wants to go anymore because the people are nuts, it's too crowded, etc. (other "old lady" excuses) - so I thought this would be PERFECT for all of us!

Of course, after Ian and I bought it, we had to try it out before everyone came over.  So, we spent Friday night dancing!  It was so much fun, and I even had to put my heart monitor on because it was such a work out!  Here are some of our sweet dance moves (Ian dancing to Pitbull and me to Salt-n-Pepa):

So, last night, everyone got a chance to play.  We had a blast!  Here are some action shots (forgive the phone pics):

We played Kinect Adventures too - what a workout!  When I woke up this morning, every single part of my body was sore.  That cart game where you are jumping and ducking - totally squats the whole time!  Hilarious!

And finally, the twinsies kicking butt playing a Kinect Adventure (Jenny said she would "cut me" for posting this!):

Christine posted on Facebook on Friday that she wanted this American Apparel tan wool cape in case anyone wanted to get it for her for her birthday.  We immediately were on the phone seeing if we all wanted to chip in - and voila!  She got her cape and looked super cute in it!  Happy birthday best friend, love you!
