To T&C We Go

Tomorrow we will wake up and get on a plane to go to Turks and Caicos.  I am le excited.  Excited for my first spring break as a teacher.  Excited to use my passport.  Excited for my first real vacation.  Excited for islands.  And super excited to clomp around in my new flippers.  I'll also get to wear a few of my bathing suits.

 I couldn't decide, so I figured I'd bring at least ten.  Does anyone else suffer from bathing suit hoarding?  And have you tried lip stain?

 After testing out a few brands, Revlon's Just Bitten is by far my favorite.  It's a few more dollars than Cover Girl's, but it doesn't dry out and there is a chapsticky little something attached to the end of it.  Bonus!  The colors aren't nearly as crazy as they look on the tube, and it stays on without smudging.  Drink proof and kiss proof for real.  Ryan hates lipstick though, so if you were looking to get kisses from him, think again.  We make our own decisions around here, so if I want bright lips, I have bright lips, and if Ryan wants to wear combat boots with skulls on them, he wears combat boots with skulls on them.  He doesn't really, but it was under strong consideration early today.  I reminded him that it wasn't the 80s, and he reminded me that he makes his own decisions.  So there.

I have new nails and toes.  (Part of my Valentine's Day that I've been saving for a special something like spring break.)  I also have the knuckles of an 73 year old.  We are going to have fun.  And we are going to try to take a lot of pictures.  I hope you have something exciting to do, too.  Like snorkeling or ATV tours around the island or finding creative ways to wear all two dozen of your swim suits in 7 days.
