Today was my first practice with my dance partner for Dancing with the Stars (NW AR)! I was sooooooo nervous. We had an instructor who helped us. They both asked if I had any dance experience and I was like " Um, high school cheerleading?". Or I could have added Tiger tunes (all you OBU people understand!) So needless to say - their work is cut out.
Yes - I'm going to be 5 months pregnant when I do this (it's in November). I told them that at the very start when they first called me. But I'm doing just a classic waltz - no sliding around on the floor, no lifts. I think it will be really good. It was a lot of fun actually and I'm pretty excited about it. I got so tickled trying to picture myself doing this. I think my friends and the people who know me in real life (and maybe most of ya'll) would die laughing if they could see me in action.
I won't be wearing any kind of crazy outfit like on the TV show. Definitely no bare midriffs! ha! Some kind of ball gown instead with a lot of stretch for a big belly! It won't be on TV but if I can post any video afterwards - I will for sure! I want you to get a good laugh!
It's for a great cause - a Christian organization who goes into the schools and they lost their federal funding this year. I hope to really make a difference. YOU can vote for me if you want anytime from now until November 6th. It's $1 a vote but that $1 would make such a difference! I would love it if you would vote! Not just so I can win - but so a worthy cause would be helped!
