I’m the same way. That’s why I need some good sunscreen that i don’t feel so gross in, like today when we walked 25 minutes away to go to a park.

I’ve seen it and was interested in it, but I’m glad someone else recommends it!

Yep, I live in BA now, for about a year until next summer.  The sun is super strong.... we’re so far south!

I’ve seen the Elta MD but wasn’t sure it was worth it, glad to see it might be worth a try!

I tan fairly easily, so I may already be past the point of showing the white sheen, but it’s good to know some good brands!

Thanks, I’ll have to see if I can find it all on Amazon or online.  I do agree, the face stuff is important and I’m willing to spend a little more.

I work overseas in the Foreign Service (the US diplomatic corp) currently.  Rwanda is my next post, but I don’t remember if I did a post about it or not!

It came out of nowhere, but yes, Rwanda seems like a hidden gem post.  It’s in Africa, so still not all the conveniences.... but relatively pretty good overall.  I’ll be the section head of a small section, so a good jump career-wise after getting promoted.  We’re excited for it!  It’s our first time getting to choose Read more

Nope, just enjoying spring/summer in Buenos Aires. We’re going on vacation for Christmas and New YEars to the Dominican Republic, but I’m having someone else plan that for me :) Read more

Summer is in full swing here and the weather is really nice. I already got my first sunburn of the season last weekend (I went to takethe dog to the park but didn’t plan to stay long.... was out there for an hour). Read more

I don’t want the weekend to end. But on the other hand, I should find out Monday if I got the ‘handshake’ for my onward assignment. I got the email that is like 90% assurance I’m going to get it, but you never know.  Either way, i’d still like a 5 day weekend.

That is absolutely horrible but also not surprising.  I saw the hotel collapse in the news but didn’t look at the details.

It’s been a month of stress with all the interviews, etc. I think I want this place since I put it at the top of my list, but who knows really! Sometimes you don’t know if you’ll like a place until you get there. Read more

I’ve had a fine needle aspiration for a mass near my thyroid. It’s weird, but because they numbed it(i think) and it’s such a fine needle, you really don’t feel it.

As someone that has done six 9+ hours international flights (and a 3 hr domestic leg on each of those).... you’ve got some good tips here from everyone! I agree that if you can at all afford any upgrade, being bulkhead, exit row, or premium economy... for the love of god, take it. The difference between coming off of Read more

Yeah, that’s always a struggle.  Bras suck, in general.

I went to Trousseau in Vienna, VA last time I was in town.  They gave me a bra that they used for fitting and it fit well the first time.  Turns out the lace bras work better for me rather than a molded cup.... though I still love molded cup bras.

Moving is very stressful, so I’m with you on that.  But I’ve also enjoyed living in different places (kind of) and have a world of possibilities for my next post.  It’s something to consider!
