From the time I was 2 till about 22 I danced at a studio, through school etc. etc. I loved dance. Always have, always will.
What I DID NOT LOVE though was when I was 10 years old and I was forced to wear a light pink spandex onesie for our dance recital that was based off of the Broadway play “CATS.”
Here are a few reasons why I hated wearing that disastrous piece of material:
1.) That crap looked ridiculous
2.) Light pink cats don’t exist
3.) I had a tiny tummy when I was 10, therefore I felt like a 1,000 pound whale in that ridiculous outfit compared to all the skinny girls that were in my dance class with me
4.) Not only did I feel fat in that outfit but when you are up on stage in a light pink spandex one piece, I am 100% sure you end up looking like you’re up there butt naked.
I used to own the headdress but my dog attacked it and ruined it. Good call, Tessa. Before she destroyed it though I took a picture of her wearing it. This picture was taken 2 years ago.
Here is why I even brought this up and I am talking about this outfit that I wore over 19 years ago…..BECAUSE I FOUND IT…….AND I PUT IT ON……AND IT FIT.
And now I present you a video of me talking about this thing, in addition to a few pictures of me in my one piece/light pink/looking like I’m naked/spandex onsie that should be burned in a fire out back.
P.S. Megan, This post was completely dedicated to you.
Megan is my friend from childhood that reads my blog and is a huge supporter of what I am doing on here. She asked me about 6 months or so ago if I still had this costume. Welp, I do and there you have it. Those pictures will forever burn in your memory for years to come. I’m sorry and you’re welcome. XOXO
P.S.S. My Grandma caught me taking these pictures in this outfit. Here is what the conversation was like:
Grandma: “Omg, what are you doing?”
Me: “I’m being successful at life. I wore this when I was 10. It still fits!!!”
Grandma: “Oh, well that’s cute. Wait, where are you wearing that? To work?….just make sure you wear a jacket because I heard it’s still going to be chilly outside.”
Lastly, I text messaged a few of my friends these pictures. All of their responses were beyond hysterical. I sent my best friend the same pictures and this is what she said and my response to her
