This video of Candace Cameron Bure on Dancing with the Stars combines two of my favorite things from my childhood, The Little Mermaid and Candace, who starred as DJ Tanner on the sitcom Full House.
The TGIF lineup on Friday evenings was a weekly ritual for myself and my best friend, Jill. We'd have a sleepover and we'd hang out in our jammies. As soon as the theme song for Full House started we'd perform a special dance we had choreographed especially for the opening.
When I was in fifth grade, I played Ariel in the school play. Singing "Part of Your World," I wore a sparkly green-tailed outfit with puffy purple seashells attached to a flesh-colored leotard. It was the highlight of my fifth grade year.
So, seeing Candace perform this samba for "Under the Sea" as Ariel on DWTS puts a big smile on my face :)
