Good Morning from Okinawa!
This is Lindsay again. I wanted to drop a few quick lines before we head out. It is 6 AM here in Okinawa, Japan. Stacy just brewed a pot of Maxwell House here in the hotel room (I'm a Folger's gal myself but it will do. Ha!) and we are getting hair and makeup ready for our very long day. Excuse me if there are extra exclamation points in this morning's entry. The coffee is kicking in...NOW!!!!
We will be visiting the Commander today and taking a quick tour of his office. We have TONS of Meet & Greet sessions and we will be running around all over the place like mad women. We will also be visiting the Kadena Marine Wing where we will visit a unit that has been deployed (to what location I am unsure yet but I will find out and update). I am especially interested to meet these individuals and gather their thoughts and feelings on their deployment.
In addition, we will be stopping by the Kadena Youth Center for a Meet & Greet. I really hope that I have the opportunity to teach a dance clinic to the children on base again. Last February, I taught a youth dance clinic at Camp Zama and the girls and I had the most amazing time! I have a really neat hip-hop number in mind to Chris Brown's "I Can Transform Ya." I will have the kiddies poppin' and lockin' in no time!!
Tonight we will be performing at the Palms Club at Camp Hansen around 8:00 P.M. We will be promoting the show all day and I'm sure the turnout will be great. The show is "Texas" themed, complete with smokin' red hot cowboy hats!!! We will be wearing our hot red dance boots with our uniform tonight as well. This show is very high energy and it will be boot-stompin' fun. Word on the street is that "Texas" themed shows are a hit with the crowd and receive a great reception.
Time to finish getting ready and packing a few odds and ends for the day! The tour with Armed Forces Entertainment has officially begun!!
