July 24, 2003

Wow! It's been so hot lately, we haven't felt like moving. It's cool cuz the place we're stayin' at has this crazy-huge pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas so you can just grab a book or your Gameboy and chill out. Nice.

Yesterday the heat was totally getting to us so, Simon and I decided to invent our very own summer treat to cool ourselves down. Amy, of course, had to weasel her way into helping us by whining to mom, who made me include her. Grrrr! Sometimes that kid really annoys me. Anyway, first we grabbed some juice and dumped it into some Dixie cups from the hotel bathroom, tossed some popsicle sticks in (we found those at a craft store) and put 'em in the minibar freezer. They were pretty good, but they melted so fast! I had drippy popsicle juice all over my arms. Not cool.

But we did, eventually, hit the jackpot when it comes to cool summer snacks. Since the popsicle thing wasn't working and we didn't have a ton of ingredients to play around with, we decided to throw our box of Poptarts in the freezer. Yeah, I know - it sounds a little weird but man, do they taste good. They cooled us down and there was no drippy mess. Trust me. You have to try this at home!

I'm going to have to share my new recipe with Dylan when I get home. That is if he remembers who I am. It's starting to feel like I've been away for years. Okay, a little of an exaggeration, but it does feel like this trip has been going on forever. But who am I to complain? A couple weeks of pool/sun time with my best friend is pretty great.

PS - Thanks to all you peeps who sent in your thoughts from my entry last week!

    Maybe just a light layer or mascara and lip gloss is enough. Adding the eyeliner makes it look too much.

    Since it's 7th grade you don't need to get all fancy. For hair if you are willing to get up early then go ahead and straighten or curl your hair. Since I'm in HS I have to wake up really early and I don't want to wake up extremely early just to focus on hair & makeup. I would straighten my hair night before, and just touch up in the morning. As for the makeup...it's school and since you're not allowed eyeliners. I guess you can just use concealer to cover up anything you don't like and put on a light layer of powder on your face. Don't go for eyeshadows or anything heavy with color go for a natural look. If you don't want to do too much and want something quick what I do 90% of the time is to put hair up into a ponytail with a headband, and very light makeup which consist of concealer, poweder, and a light shade of blush to give your face some color.  :)
