This is My Confession

I have a confession to make, I love rap music. Always have and always will. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale... we had an actual class in middle school called "funk aerobics." What do you expect? Now with this love of rap music comes a love of hip hop dancing. Or as I like to call it, "booty dancing." I am currently fascinated with one dance in particular, "the dougie." The song is called, "Teach Me How to Dougie" and it cracks me up. Now if I tried to "get low" in this part of my pregnancy, I would literally hit the floor. So, I am not going to try this dance anytime soon. But I have enjoyed watching all of the hilarious YouTube videos of people trying to do the dougie. I still have no idea how to do this particular dance. It is not easy like the macarana. I like those dances that say "hands up, move side to side." The dougie doesn't seem to have clear instructions. After watching a good 25 YouTube videos about this dance, I have determined that Chris Brown has perfected the Dougie. Man that boy can dance.

This is how you dougie.

This is how you DO NOT "do the dougie!" Warning- this video is a little graphic and I hate to admit it, but I laughed pretty hard while watching it. But the guy in the video is okay!

So now that you all have had your gangster rap lesson of the day, I need your help! Miss Brooke from Shrimp & Glitz, entered this photo of her boyfriend Brice into the Southern Tide, "I'm On A Boat," photo contest. She needs about 20 more "likes" to seal the deal and win a gift certificate from Southern Tide. I think she did an awesome job. The photo is HYSTERICAL. And we would really appreciate it if you took about 5 seconds to "like" this photo for her on Facebook.

All you have to do is click HERE!  and "like" Southern Tide. Once you are a fan of Southern Tide you can click "like" on Brooke's photo and it will count it as a vote.

And for those of you who are unfamiliar with the southern and preppy clothing line, you MUST check it out!! The polos are FABULOUS. They don't shrink in the wash and they fit WAY better than any Lacoste or Ralph Lauren polo that I own.

Here is the hubby rocking one of their gorgeous dress shirts. Love it!



  1. Haha, that is too funny, I love to dance to rap especially when I cook... it always makes me miss my sisters though! :P

  2. That is so funny! Love the second video. I definitely used to listen to rap a lot more than I do now...and I wish I could hip hop dance, but I will only do that in the privacy of my own home :)

    Going to vote now :)

  3. You grew up in Fort Laudy? Me too! Where did you go to high school? How did I not realize we have the same hometown? Small world!

  4. Ooohhh love this song and his dancing is awesome! Can't say I'd ever be able to pull that off but I could def pull off the second video! LOL That is so strange that he was dancing in the street...

  5. Gangster rap lesson of the day, hahahaha! I watched some of the videos online just now- some of them had me laughing so hard! Looks like the dougie would be a good ab workout, lol!

  6. I lived in Sunrise. Near Sawgrass Mills Malls. I would have gone to high school at Piper if I would have gone to a public school. But the rents had us move in middle school because they didn't want us to go to school down there. So we moved to SC. Where did you live?

  7. Haha love your post! I like Hip Hop music too, its so fun to dance too!
    I voted! :)

  8. me and you both girl! i LOVE me some hip hop music. the first time i heard this "dougie" song i hated i absolutely love it. what happened to the C-Walk...I just perfected that like a few years ago with you think i can still throw that move out in the club?
