You Will NEVER Believe What Ant Ellie Sent Me.......

Awwwww.........my 50th Birthday just won't end.........
Ant Ellie & Me
This sweet lady is my Ant Ellie......not "Aunt" Ellie; but "ANT" Ellie.....

I received a package in the mail the other day from my sweet Ant Ellie.  I always tear into packages I receive from Ant Ellie cause, as anyone in my family will tell you, there is NO TELLING what is inside.....she sends the greatest gifts....  Sometimes its chalked full of manicure and pedicure tools; sometimes its got a duo of marshmellow shooters loaded with marshmellow bullets; or maybe its a zebra walking stick........Just wait till you see what I got for my 50th Birthday!!!!

Now, before I tell you what was in the box, I need to first tell you a little story......

It goes back several months ago when I received a phone call from a dear friend of mine.  It was her month to host a "Couples Dinner" at her house and she was looking for some way to entertain her guests.  For some reason, she thought of Liz.

My phone call went something like this, FRIEND: "Liz, would you teach my guests how to belly dance?"  LIZ: "Uhhh....I don't know how to belly dance.  Why would you think I know how to belly dance?" FRIEND: "I don't know; I thought it would be kinda funny to have someone come teach belly dancing to the group and I thought of YOU."  LIZ: (After a few seconds of 90 mph thinking) "Well, I guess I could teach your group to belly dance......that might be kinda fun.....I could go online to YouTube and learn how to belly dance.....I could do this!"

So it was set; I was going to teach this group how to belly dance.....I was actually excited about it.  I immediately went on YouTube and learned how to do Hip Snap Moves by Portia as well as the Figure Eight and the Egyptian Walk....I was really getting into this!  I told my Ant Ellie about it and she got excited too!

Then I got the call......the call from my friend saying the dinner had been canceled, therefore my gig had been canceled.  DANG, DANG, DANG!
My New Belly Dancing Outfit

Now......on to my gift from Ant Ellie.  As I opened the box, I pull out the most jingly, sparkely, adorable belly dancing outfit EVER!

I just LOVE my Ant Ellie!!

Why is she Ant Ellie and not Aunt...?
Your brother is worthless when it comes to Calloway family history

"No way are you younger than me. Well at least you admit to being at least 50. Isn't it a little late in life for you to take up such a strenuous activity.
Make sure you take an extra dose of Geritol on days that you do your dancing."

Crazy Ant Ellie !!! Hey that is great, I have learned a few things of belly dancing - on the TV they use it as a workout and it is very fun so you have to show me what you know and I will show you what I have learned.
