OOTD: Stripes and Sea Foam

Hi Ladies,
So, I thought I'd share a little insider information and give you a peep into what's inside my head while I'm taking these pictures. Here we go!

What I look like I'm thinking...
God, I love turquoise. I love looking at the sky and I feel at peace as I stand in the glow of the warm sun. (I smile inwardly as I feel the earth's love wash over me.)

What I'm actually thinking...
O...M...G...thank god you can't get pregnant through the air. I have never seen so many U.S.S.s (unidentified sticky stains) in one place. Who's idea was it to take pictures here?   Oooh...and some of the stains are over my head....I just washed my hair. :( I wouldn't be surprised if the entire male population of phoenix's DNA is represented in here. Ok, we can get through this (mentally I point a finger at myself)...we gotta get these pictures done and the light's frickin' gorgeous in here. It will look great with your cardi! Just bend your hand so only your palm touches the wall and clench your thighs so you don't fall over. Let's make this happen!

Hope you found this enlightening!
