Waaaaaaaay back in the olden days, I was in a dance troupe with some wimmins you might recognize from the blog-o-sphere.
We were, like, rilly, rilly good.
We like totally toured and stuff.
Bossy, Lotta, me, Izzy and Amanda had a terrific number called "Jeepers Leapers" which was a total crowd pleaser.
Casey the Moosh, Redneck Mommy and Ruth Dynamite had a show stopper involving silky scarves...
Mimi, Sage and KC took jazz hands to this crazy, modern, Twyla Tharp-ish place...
Midwestern Mommy, Mamma Loves, The Blogess, Slackermom and Debbie performed a phenomenal Thai dance... (no ping pong balls were involved, you smut head!)
Canape, QT, Pundit Mom, Lawyer Mama, Kristen, and Y had the hula LOCKED and LOADED.
I, Asshole and I had this crazy 1970's revue number where we actually kept a disco ball pinned between our stomachs the whole time. It was really groovy...
Chicky and Chocolate... well... Chicky and Chocolate are just going to KILL me and that's all I have to say about this:
Those were the days!
They were good times, good times.
All those rehearsals and performances...
We were on the road so much, and so tired all the time, that Bossy used to routinely fall asleep in really expensive bowls of soup.
But it brought us close together.
There was one member of the troupe, a beautiful woman named Lotta...
She was not just automatic... or sys-to-matic... or HIGH-DRO-Matic...
Why, she was...
After we all hung up our dance shoes and went our separate ways, Mom-O-Matic started making her own jewelry out of vintage glass buttons. She sells her work at her etsy shop.
Because she and I go WAY back (and because we feel the BIG love)...
...she asked me if she could send me a little jewelry token of her love.
Oh, but THE YES!!
She told me to go to the etsy shop and pick something, but I couldn't decide.
How could I choose?
To help, she sent me a box full of loot. She said I could touch it and then decide what to keep and what to send back.
The thing is... I still need help.
What should I pick?
The Button Bracelet?
(Or do THIS... if you're into that kind of thing... which clearly, I AM.)
What do you think? What should I pick?
