Sunburn or Tan??

Oh doesn’t itching drive you crazy!! Was awakened in the middle of the night by it and was up for a little while. What was  the itching due to? No, not poison or bites, but the healing of sun burn!  Do  you remember me talking last week about sitting poolside with Amy, my sister-in -law, while on vacation?  This would be where the sun burn came from. When my hubby called me the sweet name of Little Lobster. It wasn’t THAT bad! But next to Amy I did look really red, which wasn’t fair! Both out same amount of time, she comes back in with like an instant tan, I come back in with  a ” Don’t touch me!” sun burn!

The pain turning into itching is a good sign of healing, but wasn’t exactly feeling good about that at 1:30 in the morning. My back, shoulders and legs could have used a nice soak in the tub, but again wasn’t feeling that motivated at that time of night! So I scratched, which of course just makes it keep itching, but what else was I supposed to do?

So can you identify with me? I know what an intriguing topic, but hey I am tired! Do you burn and get red or are you like Amy who gets a instant tan? When I was younger I tanned very easily. We could go to the beach and I would get some red on my face and that would be it, the rest of me would get darker. OH the younger years! 🙂

Like it was yesterday!! :): Yes, my sisters and I did this! I would come in the TAN One!

 

Take a look at the 'Sunburn' Wall Art on <a class="pintag searchlink" data-query="%23zulily" data-type="hashtag" href="/search/?q=%23zulily&rs=hashtag" rel="nofollow" title="#zulily search Pinterest">#zulily</a> today!There was no sand at Amy’s pool, we said we have to change that for next summer. Hawaii, here we come!! Yeah, we like to dream 🙂 But hey I wouldn’t mind getting red near as much if I was in Hawaii!!

  1. I used to love to tan, but the older I get, the more I realize how bad for my skin it is. What looks “Healthy” is really not – lol! I do adore being in the sunshine though! Just trying to temper it more these days. Tough for me. 🙂

  2. Sorry about your sunburn Joy, but hey, it’s healing so that’s a good thing 😉. Just this holiday, I travelled and a sales person was trying to get me to by sunscreen, and I was like, “my skin is brown! I don’t get sun burn” 😁
