Boot Scoot

For an entire night we thought we were back in Texas...Home Sweet Home. Our good friends, Jackie and Mark invited us to the Texas A&M Boot Scoot. Since the evening also raised money for the American School of Doha and also Doha Boy and Girl Scouts we decided we would ignore the A&M part :) We had a blast and seriously thought we were back in Texas. The place was full of Boots, Jeans, Texans, TexMex, Country Music and lots of dancing.

Don't think for a second that this cute decor came from Doha.

3 local token Qataris, among the 500+ Expats

Intercontinental Hotel Ball Room..usually ballrooms have dance floors. Uh, not in Doha. So we danced on the carpet! Makes for good Doha memories. We call Doha the "Land of Almost".

Mark and Jackie (Aggie)

Line Dancing (These ladies were doing a routine. They took lessons to prep for the Boot Scoot) We stuck to the basic 2-step .

And of course the Aggies gathered up before the night was over. Might have been the first time we didn't mind hearing the Aggie War Hymn :)
