I spent the afternoon at the pool today! I've been waiting for this day for months and months. Laying out in the backyard with the sprinkler propped up on my lounge chair barely running just doesn't quite have the same effect.

Then I topped the afternoon off with a delicious mini blizzard because I figured I deserved it after baking at 102 degrees for two and a half hours. I would love to speak with the person who invented the mini blizzard by the way. One smart cookie.

Having a summer break is the BEST.

I also discovered that there's a major downside to pledging to stop using tanning beds... no base tan. Apparently my "tannish" looking skin that I have acquired from my Jergen's Natural Glow lotion isn't quite cutting it. I thought I was going to be completely sunburn-free when I rolled out of the pool without having avoided putting on sunscreen. After all, I'm immune to sunburns.


Sunburn central. I took a picture when I got home because I wanted to document how hardcore I am. 

Looking back on the picture, it looks like a pretty weak burn (and a totally rockin' tan). 

Which is why I re-took it tonight after it had a few hours to fully develop. I can't have myself looking like a wuss.

No you're not hardcore! (No you're not hardcore!) Unless you live hardcore!
