burn baby burn.

i'm pretty sure that most of ya'll reading this already know that i am a twin. not identical, but fraternal. we have always been best friends and claim each other as our other "other" half. we love each other so much that we've planned our pregnancies together. let's call my twinkie "kaka" because that's what the mabster calls her, "tita kaka." so i am about 4 months along with baby #2 while kaka is almost 8 months el prego with baby #1. we decided that we'd get away for the weekend and head for the beach for what we called our babymoon.

it was wonderful. no hubbies. no babies. just us. we did absolutely nothing, but laid out on the beach for hours all weekend. it was the best r&r i've had with absolutely no distractions. the first day we were there, we fell asleep for over 3 1/2 hours and of course, got burnt like backdraft. it's bad and it hurts like a mofo. i've already made hubby apply my aloe and lidocaine gel repeatedly to my flaming hot bod. literally, hot bod. funny thing is, is that i love the hint of a burn look and that's what i was going for. . .until i feel asleep. now i look worse than a lobster! when i walked into the room tonight, hubby held the mabster and said, "where's momma?" then he quickly turned off the light and said "there she is!" i couldn't help but laugh through the agony of this sunburn. oh well, hopefully it will fade nicely. if not, i will be out of commision for a week. here's a pic. can you feel the burn? i was smiling then. . .not so much now. ouch!

Ouch! As someone who does nothing but burn, I can totally empathize. If you can, take ibuprofen...it really helps take the sting out!

I LOVE the idea of a babymoon. Geniuses are the people who think up new reasons to take a vacation!

I had tons-o-fun with you, Mama Kimmie! My forehead is starting to peel already, though - fuckers. I must say, you do look HOT! We'll have to do it again, but use more than just SPF 4 next time :)

OMG! Lidocaine works well. BTW I went to Lake Titicaca last year and it is beautiful.

OUCH! That looks painful. That is one downside to going to the beach pregnant, you burn a whole lot easier. Stick the aloe in the fridge or freezer and cool it off before you apply it, ahhh it feels better that way.

Ouch!!! Hopefully it will turn into a nice dark tan - I'm so jealous, I'm ready for some color!
