Magic On The Dance Floor

February 10, 2017

Once in a while life mimics a fairy tale, and magic happens on the dance floor.  Does this couple look familiar?   Meet John & Charisse, who are simply made for each other, and who met when John asked Charisse to dance one evening.  They're getting married TOMORROW!

I've been blessed to know these two; they are and always have been two of the happiest people in the world.  I met them both separately when they took different dance classes with me.  They literally met on the dance floor at a dance I hosted in Warrenville.  What a blessing it's been to watch  them become more and more content the more time they spend together.  It's really been like watching a romantic movie!  They've both been married and divorced, and have grown children.  Now, as they have time to live the post-parenting stage of their lives, they will be sharing their lives together.  No matter our age or our background – sometimes the surprises in life are worth waiting for, as in their case.  I couldn't be happier for them!!

Their wedding rehearsal is tonight, so I won't be at the dance at the Geneva American Legion, as they've asked me to be part of their special day.  Never fear; Dancin' DJ Peg will be spinning tunes to keep you dancing and laughing all night long!  Be sure to tell me all I've missed, as I'm sure the stories will be hilarious, as usual!  I hear Peg bought some new hats…

See you at Sunday Nite Country in Warrenville, or at John & Charisse's wedding tomorrow!!  YES, we'll be dancing there!!!!

I See and I Believe

February 4, 2017



It seems before and after pictures are everywhere.  Are they for real?  Who really knows?  I do.  I've seen this particular skin-care product work, and I believe, so I have to tell you about it.  


Meet NERIUM, a young skin-care company whose proprietary ingredient smooths out wrinkles and skin.  It literally takes the years off.  I've tried other product lines – but Nerium WORKS, and doesn't irritate my skin, which is very persnickety!  I've been using their night cream for a month now, and my saggy neck was tighter by about half within two weeks. Their eye serum reduced my under-eye bags by about 65% within a month!  Every day I look in the mirror and say, "MUCH better!!"  

Diana is pictured above.  She used another skin care line for 10 years, represented by the photo on the left.  Take a look at her skin after using Nerium's creams, pictured on the right.  Nerium is a high end product which DELIVERS, and it's so good that if you don't feel it does what it says it will do within the first 30 days, your money will be refunded.  That's confidence!

I'm having a skin-care get together at 4 pm TODAY (Saturday, February 4th) at my home to demonstrate the creams and answer questions.  You'll be able to apply their eye serum and see an improvement in your under-eye bags within a minute!  Yep, I'm doing this.  Me, the gal who has never had a Pampered Chef or Tupperware party, and who didn't know that a Thirty-One party was to introduce bags and not celebrate a birthday.  I love these cremes and I sincerely believe you will too, so I'd like to show them to you.  Please come over; simply reply to this email for my address, if you don't already have it.  

I hope to see you, and then afterwards we'll dance at Warrenville.  Let's grab pizza for dinner in between!!

Just A Quick Note

January 10, 2017

Just a quick note to let you know a couple of schedule changes, and remind you of one truth: When we feel helpless at what life throws at us – it’s an illusion.  STOP.   We are NOT helpless.  Remember: WE control our own thoughts and responses. WE decide the direction of our lives. WE are the captains […]

It’s An Inside Job

  Happy 2017!  At 12:00 am January 1st, 2017, I was "worshiping the porcelain goddess", which was not my first choice of things to do while celebrating the beginning of an new year.  Apparently I'd picked up a bug that caused an upset stomach…and produced the unforgettable experience of getting rid of the old year's garbage to […]
