Sunless Tanner Mishap

I bought myself some sunless tanner...Aveno to be exact. Just to put this into perspective (for myself...or maybe so I can have some sort of excuse), I had tried a Jergens sunless tanner before and it didn't work THIS fast!

Aveno is awesome - the one I got was the kind that you can adjust and choose what shade you want to become. So I was following the instructions and didn't think it would work as quickly and well as it did. Anyhow, I saw the results the very next day - and realized that I didn't cover my entire I now have a tannless stripe that extends across both of my legs.

I'm like a neapolitan ice cream sandwich now! And I'm going to a wedding this weekend!Hopefully I'll be able to fix it before the wedding this weekend.

Go ahead and laugh. It's pretty funny.

New Cool Whip vs. Old Cool Whip

Call me a fat kid, but I LOVE Cool Whip - can't take much of real whipped cream. So I was so excited when I saw that Cool Whip was available in aerosol form. Instead of having to use a spoon to scoop it out of a tub then bring it up to my mouth (it's a long trip), the Cool Whip makers decided to make it in a can so I can dispense it straight into my mouth! Whoohoo!

I drove to my nearest supermarket - nothing there. But when I went to Target - TADA! Yay! Cool Whip in a can!

Tried it - it's alright...still better than Reddi-Wip. The consistency is a little different than the Cool Whip in a tub, but it's still Cool Whip in it's non-dairy deliciousness. I think I'll stick with the tub for the majority of my Cool Whip adventures. The extra work is worth it! :)

Baskin Robbins Soft Serve Update

So we went to Baskin Robbins today to give the new product a little whirl...swirl...
A bit of advice for y'all...ask for a sample before you place your order. I tried it and ended up ordering my usual. You, on the other hand, may love it. But it's better to be safe than sorry! :)

New Trick

So my awesome 4-year-old nephew learned a new trick from TV. I got the heads-up because he played this little trick on my sister today; otherwise, I would probably fall victim to it too...

Nephew: hey look over there!"

Then he takes the thing that's next to you while the you're looking the other way.

What a kid.

Check it out...and enjoy!

Captain Planet

I recycle. I separate my trash - take out all the paper and recyclable plastic. That's weird to some people, but not to me...and not to Captain Planet! :) Did you ever watch Captain Planet and the Planeteers?!

Movie Watch

There are a lot of movies on my "To Watch" list...

Baby Mama
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Mamma Mia!
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

The movie I'm on the watch for right now is Monsters vs. Aliens. It won't be released until 2009, but I'll be watching for it anyway. It stars Stephen Colbert, Hugh Laurie, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd...whooohoo!!

Kraft Bagel-fuls

Just when you thought that a delicious breakfast couldn't get any easier, Kraft comes along and introduces Bagel-fuls! Deeeeelicious bagel sticks that are filled with cool Philadelphia cream cheese...yum...

They come in five varieties:

Original cream cheese
Strawberry cream cheese
Cinnamon cream cheese
Chive cream cheese
Whole Grain bagel

Even my nephew likes them. After my sister had him try it, he asked for his own to eat while we were playing with some toys. When he put it down to build something, he looked at me and said, "Don't eat my lunch, okay?" And waited until I agreed before he put his Bagel-ful down. What a kid. What a bagel.

One tip: You'll find Bagel-fuls in the freezer section, but don't keep them in the freezer at home. Keep them in the fridge, and you won't end up with a bagel filled with frozen cream cheese. :)
