Get up...

Tonight was a you tube 80's addition night at our house. It started with a little Billy Idol (he still melts my butter) and as we all stood around gawking at his awesomeness, I turned to Rick and said, "You know, we really grew up in the coolest decade ever." Of course he agreed and so did the kids. They love the 80's music and styles and are quite jealous that we got to live it.
.
A few bands later I was twitchin' and a itchin' to get up and move. As I've said before, dancing was one of my favorite things to do in the 80's so when I hear that music I can barely contain myself. And when Rick played "I Need You Tonight" by INXS (another butter melter) I didn't contain myself. I jumped up and started dancing with miss Jamie right in the middle of the kitchen. We continued to dance song after song and I loved it. Rick loved it too. Yes he did. He rather likes it when I dance. I guess I should do it more often.

Ahh, life is good.
If you don't think so
just get up and DANCE.

Have you danced lately?
What's your favorite decade?
What rock stars, if any, melt your butter?

I'm totally jealous of you 80's people myself. I didn't get any of it and totally feel like I missed out.

I LOVED the 80s music. I still do and listen to it all the time. It is funny because my kids know so much of it now and really like it too! Fun that you guys did this. Still dont know about the dancing...I usually sing more than I dance! I love playing name that tune 80s style.

Yeah, there's a few good 80's songs but you totally missed it when the good music came along because you were too busy being married and having babies. And talk about the hotties that would "melt your butter!" Eighties artists don't even hold a candle to the hoties of the nineties! Sorry you missed out and don't even know it. It's sad...

The 80's WAS THE BEST!!! No doubt about it and my kids ALL agree with that too! They know ALL of the songs (because that is all we play in the car)~it cracks me up sometimes to listen as we drive to my kids especially Jaxon (5 yr. old) singing my old High School songs! BUT I LOVE IT! They tell me that most of their friends know the words to 80's songs too~that cracks me up! My boys are BIG into JOURNEY (because Curtis and I LOVE Journey)!!!~awww it all brings back the good ol memories (back in the day!)~and I totally agree with you on the dancing subject! Curtis and I were BIG into dancing~we used to meet each other at the stake dances and YES WE DID DANCE (unlike the kids today at the stake dances that DONT dance(Im sorry that is weird!) I keep telling the kids that some of my fondest memories are of the stake dances and DANCING, and that they are missing out!~We love a lot of the funky music!~the best to dance too!! OHHH how about Rick springfield~talk about a butter melter! Anyway, thanks for taking me down memory lane Jeanette!! I totally am with you on this subject! You put me in a good mood just remembering!

I cant wait to hear what you have been up to lately!!

PS have fun at Polar Express Its a great tradition to start and fun memories for the kids!~Waylon will LOVE IT!

You are such a fun mom! Hey where have you been? I feel like I haven't seen you in forever! Well I guess it was less than 2 weeks ago but it feels like longer! We need to start play day again!

The 80's were great for music but can't say I liked the hair styles. Too much work, especially for someone with straight hair! My husband and I knew we were officially "old" when we saw a late-night commercial for a set of music CD's and it was for "the 80's" and we were singing along and almost called to buy it! We remember laughing at commercials like that when we were teenagers--how all the music was awful and only older geezers would buy that stuff!
