makenzie’s 21st birthday surprise
for makenzie’s 21st birthday i decided to treat her to a surprise. i told her to dress casually and meet me outside our apartment building at 6:30 pm. my BF was there waiting for us, ready to take pictures and give me an afterwork kiss. Running late, of course, makenzie and i packed into my pickup truck and headed to her surprise destination. when we got within viewing distance from the building i whipped out a scarf to use as a blind fold and turned up some country radio for a hint. she still had no idea what was about to happen. we parked, i snuck a few photos, handed her the cowboys boots i’d secretly stashed along with us from makenzie’s closet (shout out to Makenzie’s roomate Celiene for letting me grab them while Makenzie was in class)
i then let her take off the blind fold and told her the surprise was:
A MONTH OF COUNTRY DANCE 2 STEP AND POLKA LESSONS
SSQQ parking lot
scarf and boots

Her month of classes are over and i must say she learned alot. Everything from how to keep her frame while doing a polka to who NOT to dance with at the local dance hall. i received SSQQ dance lessons as a present from my parents for my 18th birthday, a few years ago, and from there have taken every country dance class they offer. i’ve now “graduated” the program and spend most Sunday evenings practicing what i’ve learned at Wild West with Keith my favorite dance partner. yes, the classes at SSQQ are mostly filled with old gray haired men whose eyes pop out when babes like makenzie and i enroll in a class but thats not to say that the lessons are extremely helpful and buckets of fun for a pair of best friends.
