    Funny, I usually dance with my little-girl self inside me!

    But I did see a friend from grade school a while back and we used to have a dance to “Candy Girl” by NKOTB and well we did it for our husbands and it was just as fun at 30!

    Not to change the subject here, but could you tell me how you embed a video so that your visitors don’t have to leave the page to see the video?

  • Godless Sunday Says:

    Never too old to dance.

    It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only happy crier out here; this one did it for me too. Although, I need to learn to either can it or let the tears flow, because my current plan, the one where I try really, really hard not to cry, gives me a bitchin’ headache.

  • Raych Says:

    That was amazing. Her little-girl self had some groovin’ moves, I gotta say.

    This video always makes me SO DAMN HAPPY, and I always cry a little bit at the end:

    Hehe, love the part where the white jacket gets dragged by her foot. My sister and I used to dance around the living room to “Funkytown” by Lipps Inc. There’s GOTTA be a tape of that somewhere.

  • The Lisa Show Says:

    That totally made my day. Thanks.

  • Kiala Says:

    Okay, I totally didn’t believe you about it being the happy cry making…so much so that I waited an entire day to watch it.

    You were right.

    GAH.

    I admit it.

  • Julie Says:

    Reminds me of every slumber party I went to where making up dances was a required activity. Followed by Beauty Pageant and calling cute boys and hanging up.

  • Vashti Says:

    Yeah, me too.

    Thank you for posting that! I just spent the last hour finding more videos from my former college dance department (SMU) and it brought back a lot of memories. I still teach dance to this day and love to watch my 6-y-o daughter dance around. I’m may have to “borrow” this idea for her future! ;)

  • Cate Says:

    At first I couldn’t possible imagine why this would make anyone happy cry.

    And then it got to about a minute into the video and I thought about all the things it could mean and symbolize and then I was off.

    I absolutely love this. Thank you!
