Burn to Tan

Ahhh! Don't you just love the sun? It is finally nice here, after much cloudy rainyness the last...well as long as I can remember, really. I went to my usual stroller class on Thursday, I was outside for about 3.5 hours. It was so beautiful out, and I am officially burnt to a crisp. OUCH! Its definitely not the worst burn I've had in my experience with the sun, but it's been a while since I have burnt. period. It is nothing like the one I endured in 11th grade, oh let me tell you about that. Typical teenage girl with her best friend, tanning in the backyard with music blaring. We must have been out there on the hottest day that summer at noon for 3 or 4 hours. My chest burnt so bad it had litterally bubbled! I had blisters on my chest from the sun, now that is cooking. Luckily my friends dad had this miracle stuff to put on it, and by the next morning it was the most gorgeous tan ever! I have yet to find more of it. Not that I would go burning my skin in the sun intentionally just to slather it with miracle goop, and come out with a glowing tan, but.... just incase.

Totally experienced this last month when I visited the island of Cyprus. HOT HOT HOT. At the end of the week my burn turned to a beautiful tan and then peeled. UGH
