shout out to H & N

I'm going to give a little shout out to H & N (aka Hailee and Nic)... Last night I had a 2 1/2 hour dance practice - so much fun! I'm loving being on the dance team. :) At the beginning of practice, our captain Hailee was talking about going to the dance store in town (Zebra Butterfly) to get fit for shoes, pants and the top. The tops = gold halter tops! My heart sank because there is no way I'm going to lower my standards to wear these tops. Big fat bummer. I thought to myself that it will still be good for me to come practice and not do the performances - good exercise opportunity. The practice went really well. We finished the first part of our dance (She Wolf by Shakira). I have bruises on my knees and a goose egg from landing on the side of my knee wrong. haha It's well worth it though. We got to practice on the gym floor the last half hour of practice. I couldn't help but feel a little bummed that I wouldn't get to dance at for the half time shows. I decided to talk to Hailee at the end of practice (this is where my shout to Hailee comes in)... I explained to Hailee that I wouldn't be able to dance and she was bummed. I told her because of my standards that I don't wear halters. Her response was that I could wear a tank top underneath. I told her that that also wouldn't work. I explained to her that I didn't want her to change what she had in mind just because of my standards - I would be fine with just practicing. Hailee went on to compliment my dancing and saying she really wanted me to dance, so I could wear a t-shirt (cute of course). I told her that I didn't want to look awkward and be the only one wearing a shirt and she said that we would have other girls wear them. How awesome is she?! That speaks volume about the person she is - that she would make it possible for me to dance because of me wanting to be modest. That made me so happy! So I wanted to give her a shout out, but I also want to give a shout out to Nic... Amazing man. What more do I need to say? He has been so supportive to me in dancing. He wants to make sure that my shoes are in good condition - he massages my soar muscles - he makes me dinner when I get home from practice - and so much more. I love this man. I just want to say that I really appreciate him and all that he does for me. He makes me so happy and makes my life so enjoyable. I love you Nic more then I can say.

At first I thought you were referring to the swine flu vaccine H1N1 and thinking you were going to blog about it! I liked this one better!
