sunscreen & summertime




we've been doing a lot of swimming lately.

and i've decided i hate the smell/feel of sunscreen.

but i've also decided:
one of my VERY favorite feelings....
like, as in
on my list of top 10 favorite feelings....

is:

when you're in the car, driving home from swimming,
{you've just been in the pool for an hour or two}...
your hair is dripping, sunglasses on,
your skin is like tight from the chlorine....
it's freaking hot outside & your seatbelt is burning you....
but you still have goosebumps 'cause of the cold car ac.
you're like tired & hungry, but like a good tired and hungry, ya know?
*and you're blasting country on the radio...
full-fledged belting lady antebellum while wrapped in a towel.

ya know that feeling??
omg, best feeling ever.

az summers are hardcore brutal
but occasionally i'm obsessed with them.

I miss those days when I actually put a suit on and went swimming....those thin feel good days....so long ago.. and now my suit has a hole in the knee...hahaha I do like the smell it reminds me of my kiddo's being little and swim team and beautiful tans but I never did like the feel of that or that stinkin' HOT seatbelt branding a mark across my front side!!! You know now that I think about it...that must be what happened to my boobs...they were burnt to a crisp and fell off!!!

You should try the Ocean Potion brand sunscreen. I have seen it at Walmart and CVS. i LOVE it becuase it smells good enough to eat. It still has a little of the nasty sunscreen smell. But mostly tropical. :) You might like it!

Bonus - my husband worked as a golf pro at a local resort (in Scotsdale). A dermatologist came in to golf and they were talking sunscreen (weird convo in a golf shop) anyway, he said you should always use sunscreen with Parsol 193...something. I can't remember excatly. This is the only sunscreen that has it, that I know of. I have never got burned (well, badly anyway) with this sunscreen.
