A Night Out With Adults

We have a Christmas party to attend tonight so I am going to actually be able to speak with adults for an extended period of time without a child on my hip and fix my hair and make-up without the threat of sticky fingers all over me. I will constantly be looking around for the kids out of habit and will probably still stand as if there is a child on my hip. Won't the pictures be lovely! In thinking about pictures, it reminds me of my quest to be tan for the Gala back in October. Of course, tan fat always looks better than white fat in my opinion. So, I bought some self-tanner. I was thinking back to the 80s and early 90s when I frequented the tanning bed for my oh so natural tan and thought I would get the same results. Well, .... I was wrong.

So, I exfoliated, exfoliated, exfoliated as I was told to do. Then, I started the spraying. Assistance was needed from Big Buckaroo for my back. Let's just say that although I was naked, it was not remotely romantic as he was saying, "turn your left arm to the right, lift your right leg, oops, let's get your ankles". It was like a game of Twister gone bad. What a husband I have, he is a trooper. So, I walked around naked for a while so it would dry. An hour later as I looked in the mirror, all I saw was my fresh from the jungle stripes. Not to be deterred, I tried again the next day and the next. In the end,I did not look like Lindsey Lohan's self-tanning gone awry, but I am fairly certain I will not be asked to be in any ads for Florida tourism any time soon.

By the way, the Christmas party we are going to tonight is given by the City Council of our little town. I can't wait to see what is going to happen, there is always something funny, weird, and crazy!

See, in the north, we just go for "Alabaster Fluffy." (As in, one's not fat, one's fluffy) You should try it sometime. It's cheaper than spray on tan and you can eat more too ;)
Have fun tonight Mrs. Park Wife

I always feel like a fish out of water when the kids aren't around. Since Baby Bum's birth I notice that out of habit I rock back and forth even if I am not holding him. Fortunately the people that have noticed knew exactly why and got a kick out of it.
