First Lady Michelle Obama’s new year will start off with a bang as she celebrates a milestone.

January 17th marks the 50th birthday of Mrs. Obama and according to the Chicago Tribune, the white house plans to have a dance party.

The gala, to be held on Saturday January 18th, will be called “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert”.

Save the date emails are being sent out, and guests are being instructed to wear comfortable shoes, eat before they come and practice their dance moves.

During a recent visit to the children’s hospital, the first lady gave a hint about her big day when a fellow Capricorn asked what she’d be doing, “It might involve some dancing,” she said. “A little dougie.” 

Sounds like it’s going to be a blast!
