Day 130 - a little orange

Song of the day:  Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song

I ate amazingly yesterday!  For lunch I had a turkey sandwich with some grapes, for a snack I had a chai muffin, and for dinner I had whole-wheat spinach and ricotta ravioli with a side of steamed spinach.  It was all really good food!  And I feel like I'm finally back on the band wagon!  

It was so humid, and I had to turn on the A/C because of Elliot.  I didn't feel like working out, so instead I decided to try out a self-tanner.  The Jergen's lotion works great, but when it's so humid, I don't want to put on lotion.  I have pretty moist skin due to all the water I drink, and genetics, so adding lotion just makes my skin feel icky when it's so humid.  I talked to Alyson Monday night and she was trying out a self-tanner, so I though, I should give one a try.  I picked up Banana Boat Summer Color Self-Tanning Mist from Target.  Instead of diving right in to the whole thing I sprayed just my right leg.  I wanted to have a reference so I could see a before and after in different lighting.  Yeah..... parts of my leg look tan, other parts look orange, but there's definitely an overall orange glow going on.  I'm very glad that I didn't spray my whole body!  Ugh, oh well, it was on sale, so I'm only out $5, and being able to wear short for a few days, lol.  I'll be doing some mad exfoliation today, lol.  

Today is supposed to be in the 80's with thunderstorms again.  Depending on the weather, after lunch we may head out to some of the other Goodwills and Hobby Lobby.  I really want some inexpensive art/ideas for do it yourself art project that can go on our walls.  They look kind of bare.  Also, I decided to collect Janet Evanovich's 'numbers/stephanie plum series' books.  They're my favorite and pretty quick reads so I would like to have them on hand.  It's more expensive to buy them for the my Nook or from a retail store, and I always see them at Goodwill's.  I got three of them yesterday and it only cost me $6, which is less than one paperback.  Not to bad, but I don't think I'll be wearing shorts to Goodwill, lol.

  1. Hi Bekah! Find some fabric that you like at hobby lobby and buy it with their 40% off coupon they seem to have every week. You could put the fabric in frames or wrap it around a canvas and make some artwork that way. It is inexpensive and you can change it whenever you want to:) Have fun decorating!!
