half day, picnic & tan lines

half day!

that reminds me of arrested development: "army had a half day" - buster. did anyone watch that show? kind of quirky but so funny!!

today we're having a picnic offsite for work. it's from 11-4. i'm going to go for an hour or so and then head to my pool i think. i don't want to eat that food and i don't really want to hang out with my coworkers. is that bad? they are so different from me, it's hard to explain. i work in the IT department which is filled with "unique" personalities and our gatherings are usually pretty awkward. it's definitely nerd central. i guess i'm calling myself a nerd but i don't think i am. i'm just good with computers, always have been. i do more of a project management job though. anyway, enough about work.

the bridesmaid dress i have to wear aug. 4th is strapless and i've definitely been wearing a halter top bathing suit all summer. i dont have a strapless bikini, well at least not one i want to wear, so i'm going to have to pull down the straps or get creative somehow. has anyone ever done spray-tanning? that may be an option. i've gotten pretty brown (i'm part mexican so i tan easily) and there is definitely a huge difference between the tan skin and the pre-tanned skin. what's a girl to do?

so far i've eat too much peanut butter today. i was eatiing it with an apple and it was too good to stop. probably 1.5 servings, i usually try to only eat half a serving at a time. oh well! it's almost TOTM so that is probably why.

alright, if i workout i'll check back in later! hope your day is going well!! :)

Totally watched Arrested Development! Thanks for the laugh! I know what you mean about the nerd central, I'm an engineer. Geeks galore. I've never used spray tanning but I do use the lotion kind and they work pretty good. If you get somebody to help you I think the spray would be good. If wedding day comes and it doesn't look perfect you could try putting a bronzer on everywhere to blend the 2 colors.

If you do spray tan, go get it done. I've heard it's awesome.

Ha! Nerds. (And IT nerds at that, doesn't that mean they've got some "attitude"? lol!)

Although I shouldn't make too much fun of them, I did marry one. a very handsome one.

I did the spray tan thing a few months ago. It was pretty cool. It only lasts a few days, though, and you can't take a shower or exercise (sweat) for 12 hours. Anyway, since you are part Mexican, you'll fill it in before you know it. I got married on August 4th, too! 17 years strong!

No, it isn't bad at all to not want to hang out with your co-workers! God, you're around them enough all day every day, but it is nice to have an offsite picnic once in awhile.

I am sad to say that there is no way I'm gonna reach 124 by August 1. Unless there is some miracle and I suddenly get really sick and can't eat....it can happen! LOL

Take care!

What about those moisturizers that gradually add a tan? I think Jergen's makes one. That might fill in the spots. My mom uses it during the summer and really likes it.

I did the spray tan thing before my wedding. It worked great. I did the "level 1" (there's 2 levels of tanning). It was enough to give me color but didn't look fake.
