May I be added?!

Love Marlie!

Added you. :D & love that FD, and their outfits too. :love:

I kinda fell in love with these too when I saw their last year's OD, because I thought ice dance was boring & then they did this Bollywood thing & at first I was like: is this a joke? :lol: I just loved it. :thud:

I can't wait to see what changes they've made to their programs at SA this weekend. I have to admit, I'm not really crazy about either their SD or the FD yet. But I'm sure they will look great!

silversparkle 11-12-2010 08:18 AM

I'm looking forward to seeing them. :D I feel the same, not crazy about either of their dances yet, but I think it just needs time.

Sweet, a Meryl/Charlie sports board. This one shouldn't get lost so easily...

I found this video the other day and got really excited, because youtube has blocked the sound on all the vids of this routine that I've seen. Anyway, thought I'd share:

How precious are they?

Yes, that was the idea behind it, traffic is slower here so we hope to keep the thread on page 1. :D

Why are they sooo adorably cute? :in_love::thud:
