Bee Dance—2016

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life94 Comments

I knew it the minute I pictured a tricorn hat with antennae that the 2016 Bee Dance had to be Hamilton-themed. Not only is Hamilton my favorite musical soundtrack of all time (and no, I haven’t seen the actual stage show), but it just so happens that my girl was slightly obsessed with it as well. Because it’s only going to get harder … Read More

They said I couldn’t top last year. Or the year before. Or the year before that. They said you can’t catch lightning in a bottle four times. They also said Silence of the Lambs was too dark to ever win an academy award. What do they know anyway? Happy Halloween a few days early. Consider it my fun-sized gift to you. Cathy Zielske’s … Read More

First things first, I’m the realest. Thank you. Do you know the story behind the bee dance? Would you like to? It all started back when I was about 14 and my mother made me a bee costume for my job at the RollerFair Skate Deck in Everett, Washington.  She filled the suit with balloons, dropped me off at the rink and thusly a tradition … Read More

There will be no Bee Dance for 2017. You should know that right up front. You can stop reading right now if you’re thinking, “Well, Cathy, that’s the GREAT! Now how do I celebrate Halloween?” I thought I would share the reason why and it’s a very, very simple one: I had a lack of inspiration. You may or may … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I love being a bee for Halloween. In case that might have slipped by anyone who has ever read my blog. Ever. I decided to pull bee images from the past several years and make a digital page. Something simple. Something clean. Something crap free. I was going to print out a bunch of photos, glue … Read More

Yes, the bee dance is coming on Halloween. But you wanna know what I love about this costume more than anything? It always fits. Every single time I put it on. At age 22, it fit. At age 32, it fit. At age 42—you get the picture. It is the only piece of clothing I own than can make that … Read More

Damn, girl. You’re looking goooood! That’s what I thought to myself after seeing this shot on my iPhone. I decided to try my friend Elise’s way of putting a phone on the ground and taking a selfie using TimerCam. I leaned it against my sport band case, set the timer for 15 seconds and ran over to pose. The funny … Read More

The song of the summer + how to dance to it

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life24 Comments

This is my favorite song right now. I hadn't heard it until I was in Slovenia, even though I hear it's been all over the radio state side. Our friend who got married made us a mix for our day trips in Slovenia and Get Lucky kicked off the mix and an extendid remix showed up at the end. At … Read More

It’s that time again when I go through my year of posts and pick out the ones I think were either a) good, b) decent, or c) worth another look. You should know this is a relatively subjective process that I try to do annually. One thing I’m fully aware of as I look back, this past year I posted … Read More
