The Clock is Ticking

This weekend felt like a whirl wind. It went by so fast, I feel like the clock is set on fast forward the time just keeps flying by!

Operation tan went strong over the weekend. I've went everyday and I've got 2 more day of it. I'm starting to see a little bit of a difference so at least it's something! If you're looking for a good product for outside tanning, try Banana Boat Tanning Oil. It's great! I use the yellow cap bottle and it shows results fast. 
Sunday was my last day at work! Now I've got the next 17 days to see and hang out with friends, go on vacation to California and head to New Mexico. I am SO excited for these next few weeks, it's going to be crazy busy for sure. Oh, have I mentioned that while I'm in California I'll be meeting up with and having dinner with someone super talented & famous?

Evan Lysacek, Olympic gold medalist and currently in the final 4 of Dancing with the Stars. The first night I get into Los Angeles we'll be having dinner together. SO SO SO excited. There will be major picture posting on twitter that night and then once here when I get home.

I've only got 2 more days to get everything packed and ready to go. Can I be honest? I don't have anything ready for vacation. There's stuff I still need to go pick up, clothes to be washed and folded, luggage to be brought out and tons more stuff. I really hope I can get it all done. I'm feeling the anxiety/stress level slowly rise as I get behind with my to-do list. 

While I'm gone, expect a few scheduled posts, including a giveaway! I haven't decided if I'm going to take my computer. I know the Roosevelt Hotel has internet in the rooms but I just don't know if I want the hassle of carrying it yet. Happy Monday!

How do you know him to where you are having dinner with him? That is so cool! Have fun on your vacation. First place you eat...if it's in the morning. Go to Uncle Bills Pancake House, just up the street from Manhattan Beach. Then walk down to the beach. It's amazing.
