For my college girls...

Okay, so I realize my posts have a been a little baby heavy, or Glee heavy...but I just MUST post one more in case any of my college gals out there did not catch this weeks Glee (or if you were like Michelle and I, and your DVR cut off the last 5 minutes...aka best 5 minutes in television history)

If you've been to any of our weddings, birthday celebrations, or just ever hung out with us for an extended period of time, you will know that "Like a Prayer" has a very, and I do mean VERY, special place in our hearts. It started I think junior year of college. My girlfriend Cabe and I actually like to take a bit of ownership in starting what we coined the "nerdiest dance ever" during a specific section of the song (which is only on the Immaculate Collection version).

That quickly morphed into what the girls and I now call the "Ree Ree dance".

During graduation I can remember coming home and Jamie yelling out the window of our 2nd floor house (lovingly named The Whiskey) to "Get up here and put on your graduation robe!! They double perfectly as 'Like a Prayer' choir robes!" And with that, our performances continued.

I'm sure by this point if you don't know us, we are sounding quite strange..

But sometimes things get weird. And sometimes those weird things stick. Like our dance. Like our Madonna song. Every time I hear it I think of my girls. I think of our celebrations and the many, many times we have sung and danced to this song together.

I hope we never stop.

That gave me GOOSEBUMPS!! I'm so glad you posted this - my DVR definitely cut off and I was so sad. I am certain that I will STILL be doing the ree ree dance even when I'm 90! :)

My favorite "Like a Prayer" memory was at Delane and Kevin's engagement party when we had our roof top performance in our choir robes!

When DVR cut it off after the first "Life is a mystery..." I think I screamed! Or probably gasped knowing me. I was so sad! I found it online and felt so much better. I can't wait to teach Baby J our hot moves.
(And I've learned I set my DVR an extra 5 mins for Glee.
