Vacation, all I ever wanted…

In a few hours W and I will be leaving to go on a mini over-night vacation in Atlantic City. It will be my first time there and I am super excited. I have a vat of sunscreen, a giant floppy hat, and I can not wait to bring W to the ocean again. I’ll be writing more about the trip on Who Wants to Know, but if you are on twitter you can follow along with me and the other bloggers at the beach reading the hashtag #FamFriendlyAC .

Happy Photo Friday!

The theme this week was SUN. Did you take a photo with that theme? Post it on your blog and then come back here and let everyone know so we can come marvel at your skills. (& see how hot it is in your neighborhood)

Results of this week’s tough girl survey:

Before I dive into the results I thought I would ask again if anyone had any suggestions for a theme for the surveys. Or if anyone had a question that they would like to ask a large group (aka us!).

Do you bruise easily?

71% of us bruise easily
29% do not

For those of us that are bruisers – do you do anything to treat or prevent bruises? I have heard arnica works well, as does eating a banana a day.

44% of you say you are tough on the outside and soft on the inside
23% are soft on the outside and then tough on the inside
22% of us are soft on the outside and soft on the inside {this was me…not always easy, is it?}
11% are tough on the outside and also tough on the inside

24% want to be blonde
14% want to have brown hair

Do you own pantyhose?

40% said YES. But I never wear them
28% said No, but I used to
19% said NO! Never
13% said Yes, and I wear them.

I am amused that a few of you wanted to make sure that when I said pantyhose that I wasn’t talking about tights. Tights and pantyhose are a VERY different world in my opinion. Yes, both cover the legs, but I have issues with pantyhose. This probably stems from having to wear the color “nude” and NOT being that color.
