We're Gonna Celebrate


I'm the kind of person who likes to sing and dance around the living room.
Yes, even when others are home.

With that foreword, I forgot to share this little story from our engagement.

See, just a couple days before Daniel and I left for McCall,
 I was prancing around the living room while singing,
"Celebrate! Celebrate! We're gonna celebrate!!!"
A typical day in the Rowe household.

Daniel's Dad, Big Dan, comes out of the office, a look of horror on his face.
He said, "What did you say?"
I sang it again.
"Celebrate! Celebrate! We're gonna celebrate!!!"

He said, "No! No! No! Those aren't the words!"
He immediately pulled out his record and played me the song.
It goes,
"Celebrate, celebrate, dance to the music."

I. didn't. care.
I kept leaping across the living room singing my same old tune,
"CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! WE'RE GONNA CELEBRATE!!!"

I was the butt of his family's jokes for a week.
 It was hilarious.

The day Daniel and I came home from McCall,
we found a huge poster hung in the door frame
with words that couldn't have been more true.
"Aunie & Dano: Celebrate! Celebrate! We're gonna celebrate!!!"


Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
Thanks Mama & Papa Rowe.

From a fellow blogger who often unconsciously changes the lyrics (my whole life), I can sympathize! But, I love how they used it in honor of your engagement!
