Awesome, Awesome week...

...First of all, Let me say, I successfully made it through HELL WEEK, better known as SPRING BREAK, so I thank my lucky stars for that! Woo!

The kids basically did their own thing, Jaree went with my mom, Jariel and Bee hung out with friends. We were SUPPOSED to go to Wisconsin, but Baptiste had to get major work on the van, so we opted to sit this one out and just do two vacations over the summer. We usually, take the children on two big trips per year. One over spring break, and one in summer.

I was shocked because the kids were not at all upset! We did make it up to them with a shopping spree, summer toys for Jaree, and some games for the psp for Jariel, and money for Bee. So trust me, they weren't toooooo upset. They got clothes and shoes, and they were extra happy.

Now onto my weekend! Friday I went out with Baptiste at the club he dj's at....
I have met so many wonderful people there, that I have come to love....
I don't go just for Baptiste anymore, I hang out with the other dj's wife Red.

I don't normally drink, but she is one of the barmaids and she makes a GREAT amarilla sour. And she kept sending them back there. I danced off about 25 lbs that night. I love to dance! The thing is I CAN DANCE, very well! My kids tease me all the time, and say "mom you need to be on the videos", because I learn and catch on very quickly. So they are amazed, that mama can drop it like it's hot literally! LOL I am only 33, but I guess that is ANCIENT to them....LOL

My husband on the other hand, can not dance 'A LICK'. He has "no rhythm" at all! LOL We crack up at him all the time.

But getting back to Friday night, I was "hot to trot" as usual. I wore what I like to call the "balloon top" it was off the sholder with a v neck collar, it was mostly white, but on a diagonal it was black, hot pink, and silver insignia.... it fits very tight around the thighs and butt area, I wore it with black leggings and hot pink 4 inch pumps. Hair and make up to perfection. I got so many compliments, dh was getting angry...LOL
Because they were not all women complimenting...if you get my drift...LOL

And I literally through that outfit together...
The shirt was new bought it from MACY'S on clearance, it was a House of Derreon shirt

The pumps which made the outfit in my opinion, were from a boutique called "Maxinne's", and she had an early bird special....

Leggings were very cheap...

So again, inexpensive outfit, but I was the standout...

I hate that, I spend tons of money on an outfit, and nobody notices it..
spend a little and everyone loves it...Crazy

but, I have been losing a lot of weight. And no I am not on a diet. I think it has been stress. Which is not good. But anyway, Baptiste is turning into a JEALOUS TEENAGER. I told him it is not a "good look" for him.

I am not going to lie, I LOOKED DAMN GOOD FRIDAY....
I knew and I think Baptiste knew it too!!!!! LOL
And I was getting a lot of UNWANTED action...

I am not a mean or a rude person, so when any man comes to me and tries "holler" (for all of my oblivious readers, that means "pick me up"), I shoot them down easy! I don't have to curse them out or tell them to "f*&^ off". I thank them for the compliment, but I let them know that I am HAPPILY MARRIED.

Well, Baptiste thinks I don't know how to handle myself, and that I have too many guys hanging over me, and that is disrespectful to him as my husband. He also, feels that I shouldn't dance with anyone.

First off, I normally dance by myself. But I don't think there is anything wrong with dancing, most of the time I do dance with 'ANOTHER MAN', it's to steppers music and I can step really well and everyone who knows me at that club, knows I can STEP. So even the women, will grab my hand to step with me.

Well, get this....

I was dancing, it was a table full of men who were there celebrating a birthday...

I saw them glancing over at me as well as my niece Tania...
I didn't pay it any mind....

Well, when I hear a song I like, I don't care if it's on the BISHOP FORD EXPRESSWAY, I will dance in my car, OR I have been known to park my car and get out and dance....

That is me....Dana.....I am who I am....all day ....everyday..

Well, this man who was celebrating his 65th birthday, grabbed my hand and asked me to dance...

I danced with him....
Another lady jumps up and dances with him as well....
Then his son, jumps up and says "well let me help my dad out"
He started to dance with me...

No touching, no bumping and grinding, just strictly dancing...
I knew the guy was feeling me, and when he would try and grab my waist, i would gently push his hands down....
I don't play any "slick touching"
Keep your hands to yourself man.....LOL

Well, when the guy turned his back, I went to sit back at my table...
he runs after me and said "don't run from me baby"
I told him that I was not running and that I was tired and that my husband was the dj...

He understood, he didn't press...
He just sat at the table and talked, along with his dad...
Maybe 10-15 minutes tops...

Then there were about 5 guys that came up to me through the course of the night, that tried to say something and one guy was so drunk, that he literally fell over on me, and was flirting...

And another guy put his arm around me and all he said was I looked nice...

again, no touching, no grabbing, no over agressiveness...
Just people having a good time...

So one of the regulars, go over to his dj booth and says "Damn man, they always all over your wife"

and that is all it took....
One bell ringer.....One pot stirrer....

I am there to have a good time, I don't give a damn about what someone says or thinks of me...
Hell, I already know I LOOK GOOD...
So, no MAN, can tell me something I already know
I am not conceited, just CONFIDENT, and I have always been that way.

I have always been complimented on my looks, since I was a child...
does that crap go to my head...
No, because my mom and dad told me I was beautiful my entire life....
and that is what built my self esteem....
By the time I was 6, you couldn't tell me anything....LOL

Well, to make this long story short,

I did receive a lot of attention, just happened to be more that night...
Hell maybe it was the pumps.....
Who knows, they were HOT! lol

But, I was there to have a good time...
I am a real person, I am going to be myself....
I didn't do anything out of the ordinary..
I am a LADY, in every since of the word...

the other dj came up to me and grabbed me around my neck and whispered in my ear "you are in trouble"

I was kind of tipsy, so I was like "yeah and I hope I get a spanking too"!
He laughed ...I laughed...

We get in the car and I was talking ...
and it was like I was talking to myself...

So i did a foolish thing...
I asked what was wrong?

And he let me have it from both ends....
He was so mad, I put my seat belt on ...
He was swerving in the car...

He ranted and raved....
Came home, turned his back and went to sleep...
Guess what?

I went to sleep too!

He didn't say two words to me, that next morning..
He went to work...

I went to a funeral...

And that minister was preaching about 'unconditional love'
I swear he must have been in our house yesterday...

It seems that no matter what I am going through, that is the sermon being preached...

it never fails...

He tore the house up...

I needed that...

My uncle (who is really not my uncle, but he has been a part of our family for 60 years) passed from prostratec cancer.
He was such a lively and fit man.
It was sad, but uplifting.

We went over to his house for the repass and I don't know if you have ever been somewhere, that they just make you feel like you are part of their family,

You feel right at home....

That is how his wife made us feel...

She never came around much, but Billy Moe (my uncle) was at every single family gathering, and with my cousin Mike every day. They were truly best friends.

I was re-introduced to his triplet sons (well one brother passed last year) and man we just talked and talked....

We used to play in the sandbox together, and I was bigger than all of them, now they tower over me....

We were talking so much, my cousin/uncle Mike (he's old enough to be my uncle, but he is actually my first cousin) came in to remind us we were COUSINS....

They might of been flirting, but I sure wasn't. I really missed them! To be honest, I used to beat them up.... I was such a tomboy and they sure reminded me of that.

They are MEN!!!! They take care of their children, they take care of their two nieces that their other brother who died, they took care of their father up until he passed, and now they are taking care of their mother...

Men!!!!! I had to give it to them! They were some knuckleheads during their teenage years, but now they are TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS...

We ended up being one of the last to go home....
They did grow up to be very HANDSOME THOUGH....LOL

My mom ended up calling me the next morning and asking me "how much money do you have", I said what , she said "how much money can I get for keeping my mouth shut about your little boyfriend you picked up yesterday", she even was playing the dozens....LOL

It wasn't like that!!!! LOL

Sunday, was a total day of REST AND RELAXATION....

Btw,
Baptiste apologized and began speaking to me Saturday night...lol
We just layed around and watched movies....

Even with the little DRAMATIC episode...

My weekend was Great!!!!

I was supposed to go to my cousin Alicia's birthday party Saturday night, but after Baptiste's little episode on Friday, I thought it may be smart to just stay home!!!LOL

Wow! What a weekend! Glad you two are back on speaking terms. I had a boyfriend in college who was always upset at me for "flirting". I was just friendly! Your DH should be happy he's married to a hot woman!
