here comes the weekend!

thanks to my girl anna on twitter for sharing this video with me! i know it’s to celebrate the evolving fashion but i can’t get past the dancing and music. so great.
what are you up to this weekend? we have big plans for a little family brunch date, baking more cinnamon rolls (because i somehow only had one cinnamon roll from josh’s batch last weekend, not enough!) watching and listening to general conference, and checking out the solar decathlon on the national mall… plus, maybe a nap for mama? please please let’s hope there is a nap!
have a lovely weekend! and if you’re in dc, don’t forget to stop by truckeroo tonight and say hello! we’ll be ‘stuffing the bus’ from 7-8pm!
  1. Brunch dates are the best. Have a lovely weekend!

  2. It's been going round on the internet for a while now but I could watch it over and over again! So good!

    Loved that clip! We will be snuggling for "pajama church" aka Conference as well. ;)

  12. Love, loveee that video. Any evolution of dance that also has period based-clothing is a WIN!

  13. Wow they are great dancers!

  14. have a great conference weekend!

  15. Mrs. Ham

    ohhh sounds so fun! i'm excited for general conference myself!! have a good time!

    The Solar Decathlon is amazing! My company caters for it and I literally just printed out the menu signs. Hope you enjoy!!

  17. Sarah

    Isn't this video amazing! I totally swooned over it when A Cup Of Jo put in on her blog. I couldn't help posting it on mine too. I think my favorite part was when she sent off her husband during the 1940's in the dance because it really happened back then. This was so inspiring to watch.

    Happy Weekend!

    Cinnamon rolls + General Conference is a really great idea. I may have to copy it.

    Mmmm brunch reminds me of breakfast food :)

    All the talk and photos of cinnamon rolls is making me hungry. It's inspired me to bake this weekend…which is saying something. Enjoy general conference this weekend!

  31. Hello, I really like your blog! Your family is so cute! So, you live in dc? What ward are you in? My sister in law lives in DC. She was in the Capitol Hill Ward, but she moved into the washington dc 3rd ward.

  48. The dancing in this video is great and i love the idea. Fun to see how the way we dance has changed (or not since we still do all the "old" dances as well I guess)
    I want to take dance lessons.
