jewels for jonah

My friend Helen, owner of Women's Wellness and Fitness Center (my former and soon-to-be (hopefully) current gym... my probation officer (Jonah) and I are currently renegotiating the terms and conditions of my house arrest) has decided to do a fundraiser for Jonah this Saturday. Women's Wellness is having a Sizzlethon Zumba Dance Party from 9:30am-11:30am this coming Saturday. That's right, people. I said it. A Sizzlethon Zumba Dance Party. (Don't you like how I act like I know what that this?) Seriously though, "Derived from a Colombian word meaning to move fast and have fun, Zumba combines music and movement from a variety of international dances including salsa, tango, flamenco, cha cha, belly dancing, and hip hop." (I tried it once. It wasn't pretty. I'm actually trying to block it out. I CANNOT dance. It's my only vice).

Anyway, at the Sizzlethon, they are raffling off a beautiful diamond necklace. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each, and you don't have to be present to win. But if you are present... we can meet (little hooray) and you can possibly meet Jonah (big hooray!)... the possibly Jonah part is very low-chance, but it is a possibility. If he wakes up doing well Saturday morning, I'll bring him with me. If he's a fuss box, he's staying home with daddy. Or I may decide to keep him home anyway because of germs... if he has a lot of open sores on his face.

So...

If you want to sizzle or Zumba or dance or party or get a pretty necklace or any combination of those things, come on over. I won't be able to stay the whole time, but hope to be there by 10:30 or 11. And I don't know if I'll have Jonah in tow or not.


Hope to see some of you on Saturday!

(If you go to Women's Wellness web site and click on announcements, you can see the above flyer full size or you can see the event on Facebook.)

What a neat idea - sounds like fun. I had seen a "Zumba classes here" sign outside of a local fitness place where I live, but had no idea what that was. Thanks for explaining.

We'll be celebrating Miss M's birthday, but we'll be thinking about you!

I am going to try my best to stop by..seeing you would be a big horray for me, plus I have some medical supplies for you; seeing Jonah would be AWESOME. I love the idea that sweetie pie Jonah is your probation officer, just wait until he gets older...he will want to know where you are & what you are doing all the time.

MUCH LOVE & MANY PRAYERS

I so wish I could be there (not to dance, although I'm sure everyone would be thoroughly entertained!), but would love to meet you and Jonah! Will pray that it's a big success!

Love,
Laura
