Random Friday

Random Friday. How quickly that came around again! I am beginning to pack for my upcoming trip to Miami. I haven't resolved the white legs issue but should get to the store today and hopefully find something that will give me a little color other then orange. Does anyone wear pantyhose any more? I go to these things and no one wears pantyhose, just nicely tanned legs. Fake bake maybe? Moon tan, which I had the privilege of enduring once? I can't believe I will be the only one there from the northern states that is still white as a sheet.

Mom and I went out shopping again yesterday for some things I need for the trip. Do you remember those photo booths that they had in the 50's and 60's where we would all crowd in, make funny faces and get our photo taken? Well those seem to be around again so we thought we would try it out. Notice my eyes are closed in the first picture, it took us a while to get in the groove! Fun times, fun memories.

I got my hair trimmed and a pedi after that. There was a new pedicurist at the shop and she was very nice and did such a wonderful job. Very unrushed and thorough. Ahhhhhhhh.........I could have fallen asleep!

Found a couple of summer dresses to take with me hopefully. I haven't tried them on yet so they could look like a bag lady for all I know at this point. Why is it so hard to find some nice sundresses that don't have an open back and an almost open front?! Good grief.

It's rained here almost all week. Everything is nice and green and a few things are in bloom. The lilacs are budded ready to burst open but not for another week or so. Have some pretty violets in bloom and some other things almost open.

I have been taping Regis and Kelly all week as they are having the show at the same resort we will be staying at next week. The place is ginormous! I will just start to learn my way around and it will be time to come home. We leave Monday morning and come home sometime on Friday. Wish the show had been there next week as I would have gone to one of the tapings as I have never been to a taping before.

I am back to working on my photo albums now that my kitchen is done. I can really spread things out on the new big bar. I am determined to get things caught up and all the journaling done for each page. I think the journaling is a huge part of a photo album and hopefully someone will enjoy reading it after I am gone instead of saying "now who is that with Aunt Betty?"

Must head up to the stable to pamper the horses. I am so excited about them coming home next weekend! T will be ecstatic too!

I probably won't get another chance to post for before I go so please hang in there with me and I will have lots of fun pictures to show you when we get back! xoxo

I don't have the white leg issue, but agree about finding suitable clothing that is not too revealing.
I'm sure you'll look lovely. It would be fun to see the taping of a show I've been to one in SF yrs ago.
Love the photo booth pics. I have noticed them around a bit more these days.
Hope you have a wonderful, safe, fun filled trip.
love you!

Have a fabulous time, and don't worry too much re the white legs. I am sure you won't be the only one!
I remember those photo booths well! Great pics!

Sharon said...

I hope that you have a great trip.
I remember those photo booths, we would try to get as many as we could in the booth. Fun days!!
Don't worry about the white legs. I think you will like white instead of that orange!Ha Ha
Have a Happy Mother's day also.
God bless.

I am jealous you got a pedi! I gave 3 today and only ever had 1 which has been 1 yr ago! hopefully I get one soon!

I hope you have a wonderful safe trip!

Don't worry about the white legs. I'm sure you'll have company. As far as pantyhose, they are actually becoming more popular again, although nowhere near the popularity of the 70's and 80's. And Miami may be a different story. If you do go the hose route, wear toeless hose and show off those nails!

Next weekend cannot come soon enough for you and the boys return, I'm sure.

You know me.....I'm on the white leg bandwagon too. My dermatologist likes it that way so I am glad that I can please someone with them....;)

I just read that a gal from my high school class a year ahead of me works at a weaving studio in Northport (Swans Island). I looked it up and it doesn't seem to be too far from you. It sounds like a fabulous shop.

Have a fantastic trip to FL. and hope that you have a wonderful Mother's Day. xoxox

I hate the whole white leg thing. I have been using Glow and Steady from Bath & Body Works. It doesn't seem to get orange and is pretty gradual. It's better than nothing, I guess.

My solution to the sunddress thing is to wear a tank top under it. The layered look seems to be in and that helps some. Have you seen the darling dresses and shirts that J Jill is showing this season. I'm smitten.

I had a riding lesson this morning. I will be posting pics this coming week. It was soooo much fun, and surprisingly, I'm not sore tonight. Jim says just wait until tomorrow morning. Happy Mother's Day to me.

How cool to have your mom with you and that she is a fun person like you. The photo booth pics are great. You are really blessed.

And Happy Mother's Day to you and your Mom. Forgive me for such a long comment.

Have a super time!!!! Let me know when you post some photos!!!

Mary said...

Have a safe and wonderful trip. I'm sure there will be others there with white legs and if not, you will know that they spent a fortune under tanning lamps and increased their risk of cancer just for the trip.

OMG! You guys take a lot of vacations! Have a great time!

PEA said...

You left without me again?? Phooey! hehe I hope you're having a simply mah-vel-lous time my dear:-) Just hope that everyone is wearing sunglasses against the glare of your white legs! LOL

Love those photo booth pictures, what a hoot! I remember those well and what was it about always having to make faces?! lol I swear I didn't have one where I had a serious face!

We're finally getting sunny days here although the temps are not going up too fast! High 50's, low 60's is about all we reach. My tulips are finally blooming, as are my daffodils:-)

I can well imagine how anxious you are to have your "boys" back at your own much to look forward to:-)

Looking forward to your coming back home and hearing all about your trip. Love you!!! xoxoxoxo

I hope you are having a great time in Florida! This is a great time to go, not too hot, at least as much as it will be a month from now. I hope you have a fabulous time!

Dawn said...

You get to go to the neatest places!

I wear hose - I refuse to show off my gross legs. I just think those stars showing off their beautiful dresses look less than classy with bare legs and feet. Sorry, call me old fashioned!

I haven't seen any photo booths - but what fun memories!

I already have sock line on my legs - I sat on the patio two afternoons last week and read my books - foolishly not taking off my socks!

See ya when you get back.

Margaret Cloud said...

Hope you have a good time and I am sure you will. Remember now a days you can buy that can tan and spray it on. I have pictures taken at those photo booths.

Dawn said...

Thanks so much for stopping by from Florida! Have a safe trip home.
