So, last night I decided to buy some at-home airbrush tanner by L'Oreal.
Let's not forget that L'Oreal owns Lancome and it is (seriously) the EXACT same stuff in different packaging. Anyway...I sprayed on my first application last night and went to bed nervous, but this morning I only had a slight glow. No orange, no streaks. This is a good thing, however I do wish the color was a little darker. I applied some more about 30-minutes ago. I will let you know how that turns out! There must be a point where it goes from hardly-noticeable to tangerine, right?
Two other products I am loving so far include L'Oreal's 'Sublime Bronze One Day Gel'. This wash-off gel stays on when I go out (it didn't leave underarm marks on my ivory top last weekend!) and it has a very slight shimmer. Once the first layer is dry, you can add more to make it darker. I was afraid to go past two!
Okay, so now I reeeally must start studying!!

I found this post on another blog and when I read it it gave me chills because I could so strongly identify with each word. So many times in the last nine years I have thought about my choice to stop dancing. I know my experiences in life would've been very, very different had I continued down that path.

It's Cinco De Mayo and I am skipping the tequila for the first time in years. Kinda bummed out! Though drinking at home on a Wednesday is probably not a good idea, I am keeping this recipe handy for the first chance I get to make margaritas! Sounds delicious!
Pineapple juice 4 cups
Lime juice 1 cup
Gold tequila 2/3 cup
Orange liqueur 1/3 cup
Run lime wedges around rims of 6 margarita glasses. Press and twist rims into salt in small saucer.
Combine next pineapple juice, lime juice, tequila & orange liqueur in pitcher. Makes about 6 cups. Add ice cubes & garnish with lime wedges!

This is so like me to start a project with such enthusiasm and then forget about it! But here I am again, and I am gonna try and be better about keeping up with this blog .
My excuse for my absence is that my boyfriend was home on leave for 2 weeks and the week before that I was in Columbus, Georgia watching him graduate from OCS! I am so proud of him!
Besides his graduation ceremony, we also had our first Army "ball". It really wasn't a ball, but more of just a dinner with speakers, so I am not sure why they call that. It was a lot of fun though. We both got really dressed up and had some cocktails and the food was great. I definitely want to go to as many of these formals as possible! I love any excuse to wear a gown!
I didn't get to see too much of Columbus, but we did make a stop at the Dinglewood Pharmacy to eat a "Scrambled Dawg", which came highly recommended by one of my best friends, and Columbus native, Marla.
We stayed at the adorable Uchee Creek Cabins, which I would recommend for anyone who is going to be staying at Fort Benning. They are very reasonably priced. If you have kids, or even dogs, they are the place to be! I didn't bring Barkley, but I know he would've had enjoyed chasing after the lizards and frogs that found their way into our cabin!
Chris & I caught a couple Royals games when he was home and I am so glad we did because it looks like I will be moving to Augusta (Fort Gordon) in about 6 weeks and will be missing the rest of the baseball season. I am beyond excited to be able to move down there with him. He is already there and in the process of furnishing the apartment. I get to do the decorating! Woo hoo!
Oh, and my other big news is that I finally signed up for my cosmetology state boards! Now I have to start studying. I am kind of nervous since I started school so long ago and feel like I may have lost some of the information. I plan on taking my practical the day before I move to Augusta so I have one chance to pass it. Geez....no pressure, huh?! I will apply for reciprocity so I will hold dual licenses in Georgia and Kansas. Finally I will actually get paid for all the hair I do! Yay!!

And on to something really disappointing...um, really, KU??? Did the #1 team in the country just let it slip away like that? UGH! Not good! Makes me want to throw in the towel on my diet and have a beer! :(

This is the first year in the last decade that I haven't celebrated St. Patrick's Day in Kansas City. Instead, I worked all day rocking a kelly green cardigan and reminding myself that green beer is not allowed on the South Beach diet anyway. However, after a few drunken phone calls from friends wondering where I was, I started to feel a little bummed that I was missing the festivities. I think my boyfriend is feeling the same way since he requested I pack a 6-pack of Boulevard Irish Ale when I fly to see him in three weeks! Can you even fly with beer? This just seems like a disastrous spill waiting to happen!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I used to love writing. Actually, I used to love a lot of creative and artistic things, but somewhere in the chaos of my twenties I forgot about many of those. Now that I have made the decision to slow down, to leave all that chaos behind I have decided bit by bit to start doing the things I love again.
So, I am going to blog. Not sure how and not sure what about, but it should be interesting (maybe just to me, but that's okay too!)
