BIG Plans

I have BIG plans this year.  I love having plans,  making plans, anticipating them.  It is much more fun than actually following through on them.  I have entrapped my husband in a few of  my wanna-be-plans in hopes he would help with the follow through aspects of my plan making.  And I did it in the form of a gift giving. 

For Christmas he got two of my plans wrapped with a bow. 

1.  Ballroom Dance lessons.  I have always wanted to dance with my husband. Not just our form of bad 80's dancing.  Ever since I took ballroom dance in college and read the the teachers notes "nice hip action" on my Cha Cha, I have wanted to really learn to dance with my hubby.  And I want to wear an outfit like on Dancing with the Stars. 

2. Boot Camp.  No, I did not enlist us in the army.  Though some days I would like to .  Boot Camp is an extreme form of exercise classes, early in the morning.  "Exercise" and "early" are both four letter words to me.  BUT I thought if I had a partner like my it would less painful FUN!  My husband still has yet to redeem this gift. I know he is speechless with excitement.

And just for myself this year...

3. Bikram Yoga.  You know, hot yoga.  Not hot as you, "you look hot in those yoga pants"  but hot as in 110 degree room to stretch your body into positions it should not be in.  Yes, in Las Vegas in the summer time it could be done outside but it is in a small room of sweaty folks.  I am guessing they are all sweaty.  I have not actually been yet.  I wear yoga pants everyday but they have never seen a day of yoga.  I have heard there is vomiting in this class so I am really looking forward to it.
I really hope this guy is in my class!

So I will let you all know in a month or so how my BIG plans are going...or not going!

Good luck with all your plans. Puking and exercising, how could it not be fun?

Great plans! I love ballroom dancing. Someday I hope to get my husband on board with that plan. Bickram yoga is fun, but bring lots, and lots of water to drink. Also, I hope more people choose to shave their legs and armpits in Vegas than they do here in Olympia, WA

OHHH, I sooooo want some ball room dance classes. But ever since I started the idea of doing this we only added kids to our family, making it really expensive for the sitter situation. And I also added weight to the frame, so no dress would fit like a glove. more like a stuffed sausage.

I was photographic proof.

In fact, I photographic proof of the dancing too!

I've never heard of that kind of yoga, but that ballroom dancing sounds fantastic!

MrsDixon said...

Ohhh fancy! I have always wanted to try the 'hot vomit yoga' too! What fun!

Leanne said...

AHHHHH!!! Just when I thought I couldn't get past the "nice hip action", you hit me with the yoga picture .... Oh my! Did you photoshop that guy in there? Or is that really supposed to do something for ya?

Cherie said...

Wow! 3 definately awesome things! I LOVe that last picture. If that guy IS in your class we need a few more pics - ha ha!

AB said...

Is it just me or are all 3 of your plans things that can make you sweat?

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

*sigh* You always have the best plans!

T said...

I am just cracking up at that picture... if that guy is in your class you may want to wear re-inforced Yoga pants (and shirt) so that his footprints don't leave bruises.

Lori Thompson said...

LOVE your plans! Crazy picture of the yoga dude. If he was walking around me I'd start busting up laughing!
GOOD LUCK LADY!!!

I told my hubs we should take ballroom classes, he looked at me like I had 6 heads

Alisha Jaybird said...

Hahaha! If that guy was in my yoga class, I would be laughing my rear off all.the.time. So are you GOING to boot camp, or are you going to MAKE your own boot camp? I recommend watching Major Payne for inspiration. ;)

annie valentine said...

I wanna do sweaty yoga too, especially if he is the teacher. Hubba hubba.

annie valentine said...

That was sarcasm.
