    Ok so it doesn't hurt as much anymore but just look at it... do you feel the burn?! My chest already peeled off and now my legs are. YUCK! I'm not in the right state to be soooo fare skinned and freckled.

    Yay For Sunshine!

    I have some slight sunburn on my cheeks, nose, my left shoulder, and the bottom fronts of my legs. I haven't been to the beach in a while up until yesterday. And it was my first time wearing a bikini.

    My Whole Face

    I tan indoors during the week but I usually have make-up on when I'm coming from work. This past weekend was my first outdoor weekend of the year. My face is on fire! I should've worn a cap. Aloe vera is my new number one homie.

    Owwie!

    I have a Not so bad sunburn, I have had worse in the past, I remember, last year, I got sunburn so bad, I couldn't even wear a shirt, without it hurting, or lay in bed, at least it is not that bad this time, but still, it is there, and it does hurt.

    Hhmmm Another One

    Kinda looks like that group picture too! I normally wear sun block but the wind was so cool and the clouds kept hiding the sun and I just forgot. I actually hate putting it on... hate the smell, the feeling and having to stop and do it. Guess I earned another burn.

    Peelings...nothing More Than...peelings....

    I have extremely fair skin.  I love to swim.  These two facts do NOT work well together!  Most days I get in the water, do laps for a couple hours and go home.  That keeps me slightly scorched, but not burned.  But today I did my laps...then chatted with...
