The Pink Out! is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 13. I am so dang excited about it! - a little bummed because Nic or my parents won't be there. :( Luckily, the dance team is also performing tomorrow night at KU's basketball halftime - dress rehearsal! The dance is really coming together and my 80's outfit is complete: pink, pink and more pink! Here is a Q/A card that is going in the pink t-shirts being handed out at the game...
