Quest for the Best Seattle

18 Apr

We were pretty excited to see the new venue for Quest and we were so happy with the change!  First of all we were pleased that Verve Ballroom is in Lynnwood so we don’t have to battle Seattle traffic, but also it was a lovely room with loads of easy parking and close to our hotel.

The comp was small, as Quest often is, but especially small since it was only a week after the US Nationals.  But ballroom is all about “go big or go home” and we all put our best feet forward and danced well.  We had a mixed bag of results, but as usual, a splendid time was had by all and we count the weekend as a whole as a success.

Somebody surprised me just before  we left with some yummy new lashes, so here are some pictures to show them off.

We had to do our makeup on the Anacortes ferry and had barely half an hour for hair.  But the hairpiece saved the day!  Didn’t get a photo before we danced and had to wait a long time afterward to get a decent picture.  For someone like me who is usually a rather ghostly shade of pale, this photo was a bit of a shock!

This weekend marks the beginning of our 5th year of competition with the annual Island Fantasy Ball.  We’ve come a long way since then!  Looking forward to dancing and seeing our friends and family!
