SBC Day #2

I LOVEEEE summer!

It's probably the only time when all my friends are back in our hometown and not away at college. I also love summer because the weather is amazing! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am ALWAYS cold. NO JOKE. My hands are always cold, even if I'm under a down comforter. But, in summer that rarely happens. I also have an unhealthy obsession with bathing suits. This year I ordered 3 new ones, which makes me bathing suit total 11! Ya...told yaa. lol

On the other hand, I can't be completely carefree over summer for 2 reasons. One, I'm nannying 4 days a week and need to wake up early to get there on time. I love the family I nanny for, so it's not a HUGE deal to me.

The second is about the sun. I have to wear sunscreen practically 24/7. I have a bad skin condition called dysplastic nevious syndrome, this is when the freckles that appear on my skin can easily turn into melanoma or irregular nevi (as the dermatologist calls it). I've already had 5 mini-surgeries to remove moles that could potentially turn into something worse. I wouldn't say it hinders my ability to do anything over the summer, I just have to be 100x more cautious than my friends. And I'm ok with that.

I will also love summer once I start teaching and have 2 1/2 months of free vacation time!! That's one reason why I choose this career path. lol jk!!

Needless to say I LOVE summer.


  1. ah, I hate using sunscreen! It takes so long to protect myself from the sun :s

  2. That is a lot of bathing suits! I love them also, but don't have as many now. :)

  3. Yes definitely one of the perks of being a teacher, Summer vacation!!

    So glad you're joining in my summer challenge!! I look forward to getting to know you better!!


  4. Wow 11 suits that is just amazing.. I only have two or three. Sun screen is a must.. Have a great day..

  5. That is an impressive collection! I have one that doesn't fit lol I am sorry to hear about your skin condition my cousin has a condition where tumors can randomly appear. I am very fair and by that I mean paper white so I use sunscreen religiously as well
