Calculating Dance Floor Size + Average prices in Austin

Is it truly a “party” without a dance floor?!? I don’t think so. The most fun I’ve had at events (some embarrassing) have be on the dance floor – either dancing or just watching.

Event Tents: Types, Sizes and Prices

I went to Target yesterday to get mascara and sat on the make-up aisle just staring at all of the choices. I didn’t want to choose between long, curly, luscious, or thick.
