Make Some Waves

Are you a bikini beach babe?

I once was, sorta. Right now I’m stuck in beach babe purgatory as I pack for our upcoming trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico. Beach babe purgatory involves being stuck somewhere between a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and a moo-moo mama that calls folks to dinner by blowing tinto a conch shell. If you can relate, check out my plan to bring back beach babe-ness no matter how old you are at:
