I Only Came For The Dancing

I Only Came For The Dancing

Featuring MONUMENT at Redeux

Most young adults can’t wait until their 21st birthday, making big plans to go and hit the bars.  Me and my other 3 best friends were a little different!  For us it was all about the dancing!

It started when a local bar designated Tuesday evenings as “teen night” and we went every Tuesday or every Tuesday one of our parents would drive us, dancing until the wee hours of 10 PM.  We spent a few months loving our Tuesday night dancing until we found out about a dance club that was JUST for teens and it was open Friday and Saturday nights.  This meant no more school night worries!  It was a little further from home so now we had to split the parental driving duties…one friends parents taking us and another picking us up.

This continued for about a year I guess until we got our drivers licences.  Then we just had to get permission to use the car.  I think the parents were actually happy since it meant no more one AM pickups for them.  And so this continued for YEARS!  All through 4 years of high school we spent either Friday or Saturday night there..sometimes both.  Throughout all that time we made great friends, dancing partners and even became friends with the owners.

Fast forward to the year we all started having our 18th birthdays.  Technically that was the cut off age and you weren’t supposed to be allowed in to the teen club and for a lot of our friends this was fine.  They found bars where you only had to be 18 to get it and started going there.  My friends and I tried a few but the crowd was obviously WAY different and we started having to deal with men that were WAY too old for us.  We wanted back into the teen club where the music was better than any bar and the dance floor was much bigger and because of our friendship with the owners they still allowed us in.  Was it breaking the rules..yes…but we weren’t there to prey on the new 13 and 14 year olds…we were only there for the dancing…and dance we did!

Featuring :: NEWCHURCH ::

I love the industrial look and feel of this new release from :: NEWCHURCH ::.  The shape of the bed and the detail in the trim work is just beautiful.  I imagine someone would love to have this loft in Soho but they would have to sell an arm and a leg to live there…maybe even more body parts than that…like a kidney!  Luckily, this is Second Life where you can create your perfect living space for a fraction of the cost!

The Jules Industrial bed is available at the current round of We Love Roleplay.  It comes in adult and PG versions and has multiple texture options for the main bed, the pillows and the comforter.  We Love Roleplay will end on February 28th.

Mojito Magic

Mojito Magic

Featuring Sway’s and [InsurreKtion]

Summer is coming….When the sun begins to fade you will take my hand and lead me to the patio.  You will light a fire, not for warmth but for mood, as the summer air has left the evening warm.  You turn on some music to set the tone and pour us each a chilled mojito , made with the perfect amount of lime and mint leaves.  We watch in silence as the sun sinks to meet the horizon, the music playing softly in the background while the sounds of the evening fill the air.  Summer is coming….

Ingredients

10 fresh mint leaves

1/2 lime, cut in 4 wedges

2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste

1 cup ice cubes

1 1/2 oz. of white rum

1/2 cup club soda

Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

Rural Delivery

Featuring Sway’s

Let me just say how much fun I have had blogging these past 8 months!  So far I haven’t hit any roadblocks or lack of ideas and that is in part due to my sponsors.  I love when I get an idea instantly upon seeing items as I am unpacking them and the latest release from Sway’s did exactly that.

Featured here are items from the Mail For You gacha set that is available now at The Gacha Garden.  As soon as I saw the key photo I got my idea….it was that quick.

Up until I was about 10 we lived in the city, on a cute little city block where our mail was delivered to a cute little mailbox that hung right next to the front door.  Then we moved to the “boonies” which wasn’t really the boondocks but after living in the city it sure seemed like it.  It was certainly rural though.  People lived on acres, not lots and there were farms and horses and orchards…a complete change of scenery for sure. Where I had usually walked to school, I now had to take a bus and where we had been able to open the door and get the mail without even stepping off the porch, we now had to not only go outside but also cross the street to get to the mailbox.  It was totally normal to see clusters of mailboxes side by side.

That is still the place I think of as home, the place my mother still lives 40+ years later and I still smile now whenever I drive past little clusters of mailboxes.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Cabin Coffee

cabin coffee

Featuring [Krescendo] and *SK*

Having lived in Michigan most of my life, there were plenty of trips “up north”.  A few of my friends had cabins and most every summer we would pack up and head north for a weekend of camping and canoeing.  Some of us preferred to pitch our tents, some had trailers and some stayed in the cabin..maybe lucky enough to get a bed, otherwise camped out on the floor.

I will never forget the year that it rained…and rained..and rained.  We had a brand new tent and set it up with the others who preferred to “rough it”.  It was a great tent, 3 rooms with the entry room being like a screen house.  Well talk about a bad design!!  When the rains came there was nothing to shield the screen walls of that front room and it ended up ankle deep with water!  Everything was soaked!  Needless to say all of us in tents moved into the cabin for the next two nights and vowed our tent days were over..yes, it was that bad.

The day we got home from that trip I started looking for a popup and 3 days later we were the proud owners of a spiffy Coleman popup that I loved for many years.  We eventually moved up again to a hard side trailer and while it was nice, I really missed my popup.

There is nothing like a nice cup of hot coffee while camping…be it in a cabin, tent or trailer.  Summer is coming and I am looking forward to cabin coffee!

*For Kim…I know you are enjoying cabin coffee everyday.  Miss you!*
