This Mommy's Catching Some Rays

We're taking a little vacation to Florida a week from now, and this mommy needed to get some sun. BADLY.

I'm a native Floridian that has been transplanted to Georgia (which makes me sound like I don't have a husband and kids, but I DO!), so it is completely unacceptable to vacation down in my home state without the proper base tan. I do NOT want to look like a tourist (and yes, I can be incredibly vain at times).

Although, with the way this (horrific, catastrophic, idiotic) oil spill is shaping up, I may get brown just from taking a quick dip in the ocean. :(

So, I've been spending all of my free time with the kiddos soaking up some sunshine at our community pool, which has been GLORIOUS.

I'm a much happier person when the sun is out, are you?


  1. I'm reading this from my sunny deck, and I'm loving the therapeutic feel of the sun. There's no humidity today, and I'm enjoying that while it lasts as well. Enjoy your vacation.

  2. There's definitely something to being out in the sun. Enjoy your vacation.

  3. Actually, I have been mad at summer because that means ants that won't go away. It's been a losing battle. And I don't really like HOT. So the sun and I are NOT friends right now. Plus, I will never be tan. Only red. I need to move to Alaska.

  4. You sound like a total southern gal! Up here in the great white north of Michigan, that's the color of my skin almost year round! But since most of us are that way, we don't even notice! But, yes, I love the sun and the warmth of summer.

    Enjoy your vacation, Beth! :-)

  5. We had a sunny day...Saturday. The first in weeks. Sunday we were back to deep gray clouds and lots of rain. I'm a little deficient in my vitamin D, LOL.

    Have a great trip!
