Jumping back to move my love life forward


Remember when I said about a month ago that I was thinking about going to Jump Back Ball this year in the hopes of meeting the future Mr. Always a Bridesmaid?

(Assuming I haven't already met him and he's just playing coy. Or that he's purposely hiding from me.)

Anyhow, I know of at least two couples who met at Jump Back Ball over the past couple of years... one of whom actually just got engaged! So, I'll definitely be making my appearance at Jump Back Ball this year.

In fact, I'm going to be getting my tix early. On this Thursday, to be exact. At the ticket sales kick-off party at AJ Rocco's, when tix are the lowest price they'll ever be (which will obvs give me more money to put toward a pair of killer shoes).

So between now and the event in February, I need to find a cute dress, lose about a gazillion pounds, grow out my bangs (from that unfortunate haircut decision back in April) and figure out how to apply self-tanner without getting weird lines on my hands.

Oh, and maybe even find a boyfriend to go with me.

And if I don't have a boy to take to the ball, maybe I'll find one there. In which case I'll need to make sure those "killer shoes" are actually a pair of glass slippers.

Because this Cinderella is ready for her ball, peeps. And for her Prince Charming.

If you figure out that tanner thing, PLEASE let me know. The one experience I had left me looking like Tony the Tardy Tiger.

Respectfully -- thanks! I liked my bangs for about four days and have spent the last six months trying to grow them out. Ugh.

Alexa -- fun!

LiLu -- will do, lady friend. I have had success once using this Neutrogena mist stuff, which leaves few lines (unless, of course, you wash your hands... and then you get the line I'm talking about). Why can't I be naturally tan!?!? :(
