Dancing at the Green Door

The Green Door is a local dance club where you can spend $3, have a dance lesson and then practice what you just learned. Number 3 son was bored and wanted to socialize, so we headed to the Green Door that is full of college age sweeties waiting for someone to ask them to dance.

Number 3 son with one of his favorite thrifting finds, a ruffled tuxedo shirt.

I almost passed up this dress until I read Helga's post when she re-worked that great little blue dress and looked fantastic in it. I tried on this dress at Goodwill and it was a little small. I thought about it for two days and couldn't stand it anymore. I went back and bought it for $5. All I need to do was to take two darts out, in the back of the dress, and it was perfect! Thanks Helga!

This is the perfect dress to wear when playing my ukulele

We left before Son 3 did because we worked cleaning up after the freak snow storm all day and we were both worn out.
