I’ve been waiting for a long time…

…to wear THIS shirt!

Today, no hurricane nor other natural disaster will stop me from wearing it. Today is the Arkansas – Texas game in Austin. A long time rivalry! Unfortunately it may be a bloodbath… but for the sake of all things holy in football, I’m wearing the best shirt of all today!

If you can’t read the fine print, it says I’d rather go to HELL than Texas…

I don’t include Dallas in the whole hot mess that is Texas as a whole. I love Dallas… but when it comes to football, I hate Texas! =)

The last time the HOGS played in Texas, I was living in Dallas. We didn’t go to the game, but watched it at the local gathering place for the Razorback Club of Dallas. When we won, we did pack up and head to Austin to party on 6th street! That was a great day!

When I first moved back to Fayetteville, the HOGS played Texas in Fayetteville in front of a sell out, standing room only crowd. Liz actually made it out this game with me. Here’s us … quite a long time ago, tailgating on Lewis.

Hogs and Kisses… gracie

Self Tanner … and apparently how to remove self tanner

I LOVE THE TANNING BED! I have an addiction… the first step is admitting you have a problem, I know this.

I’m trying to cut back, which means for me going maybe only once a week. So I’ve been looking for alternatives, and I like what I’ve found.

Jergens makes a great lotion: Natural Glow Express. I use this at night because it does still have that salty smell… so you don’t want to use this at the start of your day. Showering in the morning works just fine so you don’t smell like salty self tanner.

In the mornings I use Neutrogena Micro Mist Tanning spray. It’s great because it is such a fine mist.I’ve been pretty good so far to avoid streaks and splotches so I haven’t had to frantically scour the Internet to find some crazy way to instantly remove self tanner short of bleaching your skin. However, I stumbled upon a remarkable way to, if not remove it, at least even it out a bit.

I use Envi shave gel, it cheap and gets the job done and doesn’t smell like a funeral parlor or like the drink I may have had last night – both key in picking scents of anything! I love flowers and I love to drink, just read most of my blog, but I don’t want my beauty products to take me overboard with either of those elements. (I use the blue one…)

Anyway, as I was using above product this morning, I noticed that most of my tan was coming off as well in the razor… albeit, shaving is an agent of exfoliation. I have now realized that it seemed to even things out and I am not too pale, so I am assuming it did not scrape off any epidermial layers – yes I think I made that word up – thanks House and Grey’s Anatomy.

So, there’s my lesson for the day – notsomuch a way to remove, but a good 3 step process to ensure that your self tanning experience does not go the way of Ross Geller.
