life is a dance, from one stage to the next

I am sick.  Bleh.  Send some loves and get better vibes my way pretty please?!  I needed some cheering up and something to take my mind off of feeling yucky so I'm going to tell a story.  Hopefully this one will put a smile on all of our faces :)
The first time your boyfriend takes you home to meet your potential in-laws is a mixture of excitement and anxiety right?!  It can be completely amazing, or completely awkward.  Right?!  Well the first time Eric took me home, I experienced a little of both :) 
Eric comes from a very small town in the middle of no where, to be exact!  So, not only did I have to impress his family when he took me home, I had to impress the whole town.  One of Eric's best friends had his wedding open house the weekend we decided to go.  This was the way to meet everyone in one night!
Eric and I had been dating for just under 2 months at this point so we were all sorts of giddy about eachother still, lovey dovey eyed, nauseating to be around, all of that ridiculously romantic stuff.  Oh wait... we still are?  Good! :)  Anyway I picked out the cutest outfit (of course I have NO pictures :(  stupid computer crashing.  It was my favorite skirt though) and made sure I looked perfect for the open house.  I was really excited to go meet everyone because earlier in the day we had met up with one of Eric's oldest friends and his wife (Daren and Shayla) and we were instant friends.  I was ready to hangout with them, and everyone else!  
Once we got to the open house we were shuffling around visiting with everyone.  In the mean time I was making mental notes of things I wanted at our wedding ;)  Once the music started playing Eric and I ran out to the floor to dance.  Of course, we were the only ones.  I suspect people were watching us making sure I was good enough for Eric?  Anyway... we're dancing away in our own little love sick world when the song was coming to an end.... I told Eric to dip me.... and..... he dipped me.  Then he proceeded to drop me.  Flat on my back.  And then.... he fell on top of me.  Oh yes.  He did.  And then he was back on his feet in the blink of an eye!  As if he had tummy flopped on a trampoline then shot right back up.  Hahahaha.  Oh this totally happened.  And remember..we're the only ones dancing... so everyone saw this.  I just laid there praying that my skirt was still around my waist, not my ankles.  When I started to sit up I caught Shayla out of the corner of my eye doubled over in laughter, I lost it!  I laughed so hard I almost peed a little!  Poor Eric was so mortified he went straight outside where I had to go tell him it really was ok!  He's lucky he's with a girl that can laugh at herself huh?!  That was one amazing night ;)

I had to post a picture of us dancing even though I don't have one from that night right?!
I'm so glad, and so lucky everyone accepted me... despite all my down falls ;)  I love my in-laws and I sure as heck love my Eric!  I'll have to share my awkward story with you another night.  (You thought this was the awkward one huh?   Stay tuned... cause you'll be in for a real treat!  Make that an awkward treat :)

Now I am really interested in what the awkward story is, because I would have felt SUPER awkward ending up on the floor. That story is too funny.
