Just when you were sure that I was made of granola...

I remove all doubt!

This is the wrap I wear during belly dancing class!

We joined the YMCA on January 2 and I went to my first belly dancing class that week. I am hooked. Now I spend two hours a week belly dancing at the Y.

I purchased the wrap two weeks ago for $35. Ouch! It was handmade in Egypt. I figured, if I'm going to do it, then I need to do it right.

The next day I learned that the coins and beads are attached by one continuous thread.

How did I learn?

Little Man yanked some of them off! I was so mad! I guess all of those jingle jingle coins are just too much for a 2o month-old to resist.

It took me about an hour to find the place where the thread broke and repair it. Somehow I ended up with an extra coin and missing some beads.

Now my wrap only comes out of the bag for pictures and class.

I considered taking a picture of the wrap while wearing it. I decided that I'll post a picture of me wearing the wrap when there is a little less of me.

Oh, I'm also taking Yoga at the Y too. I guess that adds to the granola factor too.

If I did any belly dancing people would run away screaming.

But it does look like fun. Pretty snazzy outfit there too (do people use the word snazzy anymore?).

It sounds like a lot of fun actually.

You go girl! It sounds like a blast. Makes me wish I lived in the city so I could do it too! :)

It is fun!

Belly dancing is about how good you are, not how you look. Women (and a few men)of all ages, shapes, and sizes can belly dance.

My tummy stays covered at all times! It is just too fat, droopy, and covered with stretch marks.

Gotta go now. Little Man just took his clothes off and is doing the naked bootie dance.

Gotta love the naked bootie dance from a 2-year-old! He's such a cutie pie!

I always knew that my sister was weird, but I think that I thought that there were lines that even she would not cross.

You just wait, buster. There is a post coming up about YOU!

OH MY GOSH! I now have a mental picture of you belly dancing. HA! GO YOU!!!

Imagine me with a little belly than I had the last time you saw me, please! It is still a pretty funny thought, I am sure.
