And speaking of giveaways...

I won a BIG one!

I entered their giveaway , “Julia Roberts’ style in the movie,

“Larry Crowne” and I WON!!!

Here’s what I won....

and do you see something hiding underneath the neat stuff?

YES!!! It’s a $100 VISA gift card!

(I got a T shirt, movie soundtrack and stationary set, too!)

I WAS SO EXCITED!

So what did I buy?

Zumba stuff!

I REALLY needed new shoes for Zumba! When you dance, you pivot and your shoes need to slide not stick to the floor. So regular athletic shoes don’t work well at all!

So I spent MOST of it on SHOES! I bought the Reebok Zigs for $75 at Foot Locker and they are GREAT!

(thanks for recommending them Kathy!)

I had enough to buy these black knit capris at Penney’s

and a bright PINK t shirt...

and maybe went a little over getting this!

It’s a belly dancer hip scarf...

FUN to wear when you’re dancing!

SO...a BIG special THANKS to the Glam Gals,

Deborah and JoJami for this wonderful gift!

And thanks for the great advice you give all of us

over 40..over 50...over...well, I could go on

but I need to get ready for Zumba class!

It’s a LOT more fun with a new outfit, too!

You are on a roll there girl. Funny I was at Zumba last week and I was thinking of you...wondering if you sweat like I do and if they have the same songs. We had one instructor who is 6 months prego and boy could she shake it. I was exhausted! You look cute Diane!

Vee said...

You cutie patootie! Congrats on a great win. I'm so way over 40 that I think it's useless to attempt anything very great at this point. ☺

You lucky lucky lady! Your goodies are just perfect.

Ames said...

I did jazzercise, line dancing and belly dancing too but my knee has kept me from doing it anymore. Zumba looks and sounds fun but I think it would be bad for the knee. Already had one surgery on it and I am guarding it. So I am jealous. I want to do Zumba too!
