The beautiful Grace Mackey performed her first burlesque show...and stole it from everyone else on that stage. Going to the show, both Katie and I were nervous. Not nervous in the sense that we didn't think she was going to be amazing, but more anxious for your friend to do something courageous. Not many of us can get on a stage in front of a bunch of strangers (and dear close friends and family, including your mom) and shake what your momma gave you in a classy, memorizing way that you knew right away she had a secret talent that now everyone gets to witness.
She was ridiculous--beautiful, talented, and outright sexy. It literally brought tears to my eyes to watch her, mostly out of pride for my friend, but also to see her succeed.
Next month she will be performing with the Tempting Tarts (that's right she was already asked to perform with a group after just a few short weeks of classes), and then who knows...my guess is that our Greasy Butts will be a very famous Bella Peaches before we know it.
Way to go Grace!
