Sunburns and a Maxi Dress

After our little trip to training camp, Darrin and I came home pretty sunburned. Long afternoons on metal bleachers beneath a beaming sun will do that to ya.

I’m not one that burns easily, so this was kind of a new thing for me. And of course, no one is truly sunburned unless they are burned with the weirdest of “tan” {more like burn} lines, so I’m happy to have this floral maxi dress to hide my pink/white, two-toned legs. πŸ˜‰

We’ve got some friends from college coming to stay with us this weekend, so today I’ll be getting our tiny home ready for visitors! Darrin {being the engineer that he is} created an excel spreadsheet filled with possible activities, restaurants, and places around Minneapolis we can take our friends, so this weekend {according to the spreadsheet} looks like a busy one!

I hope your weekends are filled with fun and friends!

Happy Friday!

    I love your maxi dress! The colors make it a great dress for fall, too. (And sunburns are the worst!!)
