10 Days of Vacation!

by Courtney on February 18, 2011

Wow, you ladies really know and like your self tanners!

Thanks so much for the suggestions. It appears as if Jergens Natural Glow and L’Oreal Sublime are two pretty popular products!


I didn’t get a chance to stop at the store after work today, but I will definitely be making a trip tomorrow to hopefully pick up one of these two. YAY for some color on this pasty skin of mine! Winking smile


So I totally scarfed down breakfast without thinking twice about taking a picture. Oops! But I will say that I enjoyed a mish-mash of banana + peanut butter, and a black cherry flavored Chobani. With my refreshing iced coffee, of course.

Then before I realized it, it was time for lunch…and a good one at that!


Last night, I prepped a delicious salad with some romaine, spinach, cukes, grape tomatoes, 2 baby carrots (only 2…I’ve missed them!), chickpeas, fat-free feta, and some leftover roasted veggies from last night’s dinner.


This lovely combo also got topped with my current salad dressing obsession. Winking smile


An always-delicious Clif Z Bar was also consumed and unphotographed at lunch. Then around 3:00, I dug into some strawberries and blueberries.


You can tell it’s definitely not strawberry season, but the blueberries have been fantastic these days! Smile


In a few minutes, Jay and I are heading out to one of our favorite restaurants, Jimmy Casey’s, for dinner. I will absolutely be imbibing with a glass of wine this evening because,

a) It’s National Drink Wine Day (who knew?!?)

b) I’m on VACATION for 10 days!!!

Both sound like perfect reasons to celebrate, right?

After dinner, we’re heading over to Sarah & Jeff’s – who knows, maybe another Dance Party will ensue…????? Surprised smile

Question for the Evening:

How are you celebrating this lovely Friday??

National Drink Wine Day! How did I not know about this?! Good thing I was already planning on having a glass tonight, or more like 2-3! :)

We’re going to an event tonight, and Indian food is on the menu. I’m so excited. Enjoy your evening!

GAH! I am so jealous of your Winter Break! We don’t have a day off until Spring Break & that’s not until April 16. Let’s just say it’s going to be a long haul. :(

Glad to see the winners from this morning’s self-tanner discussion! I just ran out, so it’s the perfect time to try something new!

I’m off to catch up with my DVR cuz I’m cool like that. ;)

My Friday night is pretty low key. I’m sitting in front of the TV (watching House Hunters) and just relaxing while the apartment next to me is throwing a WILD party!

be warned on those self tanners!! (and yes, i have even tried the two “winners” you have chosen) NO SELF TANNER makes your skin have a NATURAL looking glow …. they all give you an orange-colored glow. nothing beats the real thing, sorry! but have a great vacay!!!!

10 days off is most definitely a reason to celebrate!!! :)

It’s National Drink Wine Day?! I should be have celebrating for hours! ;) I spent my day hanging out with my parents, which was actually really nice. Enjoy your 10 days off! :D

10 vacation days! That sounds amazing! I hope you enjoy every one of them! Also nice colors on your salad it looks lovely! Its funny you say the strawberries aren’t great and the blueberries have been, because I’ve experienced the opposite here! GREAT strawberries but mushy blueberries!

Haha, that’s interesting!
