I considered alternate post titles this morning based on the bikini in the picture, like “Read My Lips” or “Oh, No! Cameltoe!” but I decided to keep it simple.  I knew I HAD to do a bikini because my son just started Spring Break and I was in a rush because we’re leaving tomorrow morning.

I remember when Spring Break meant driving hundreds of miles to the beach crammed in a car held together with duct tape and bondo, living in cramped quarters at cheap surf-side motels, eating meals from vending machines, working on your tan (read: burning to an un-flattering and painful shade of lobster red), consuming mass quantities of various alcoholic beverages while partying, dancing and puking…and of course, boys, boys, boys.

Now, Spring Break is driving 400 miles each way with a whiny 8 year-old (that would rather be at home) to his grandmother’s house.  This is one of those times that I really miss those wild days of my youth.

Sky Blue was a wonderful color to work with this week, but I’m really looking forward to next week’s White!  Bubbles talked me into catching up on all the colors I’d missed since I started the challenge late, so I powered through them.  Instead of posting them all here, they’re on my Flickr stream and to cut down on the number of uploads, I combined four weeks into each picture.  Here’s the links if you’d like to check them out:

Weeks 1-4:  Gray, Blue, Goldenrod and Plum

Weeks 5-8:  Sepia, Yellow, Cerise and Green

Weeks 9-12:  Silver, Sienna, Indigo and Taupe

Weeks 13-16:  Emerald, Black, Red and Teal

Week 17:  Electric Lime

Week 18:  Ecru

Like, Totally!

The best thing about being back in SL is spending time with my friends.  The second best is shopping.  And when you combine the two…look out, like last night for example.

It started innocently enough hanging out with The Ro and catching up.  Bubs soon joined us and that’s when things got out of control.  SL in its usual fashion was being naughty and tho Bubs could see she had on shorts, no one else could.  The Great Cooch-a-Thon of 2011 followed and The Ro was proclaimed honorary Guardian of the Cooch (Yes, I have pics, so it did happen.  On sale now for 65K each).  I so love my friends and really missed evenings like this while I was gone.

Fai joined us later and we went to Emery.  I can’t believe I’d never heard of it!!!  The 80’s were my prime time in high school and college and these clothes brought back such great memories from those days.  Bright colors, long belted t-shirts and Dynasty sky-high shoulder pads *sighs blissfully*.  I was in shopping nirvana.
