Summer Travels to Fall Follies

by Jenny on August 29, 2011

With the summer coming to a quick end, I took some time to think back over the past few months. Usually my summer consists of plenty of trips to the beach and at least one girls weekend trip to a new city of choice.

Between work and lots of trip to visit Brian over the past few months, this summer didn’t hold as many “summer vacation trips” as past ones but it still was a great one! I’ll take time with my boy over the beach any day. Wow, did I really just say that?!

Even with my busy schedule, I managed to sneak in a few days at the beach with my family, friends, and even Brian!

One thing that has been consistent through the last couple months of my summer, even without many vacations on the schedule, has been the Eucerin Everyday Protection lotion. After I received this product in early July, I have been using it on a regular basis when I now I will be spending ample time outdoors, to not only moisturize my skin, but also to protect me from harmful UV rays. (My full review of the product is available here.)

I’ve actually started to appreciate the importance of protecting your skin on a daily basis from the sun and with my history of bad sunburns and tanning bed use, this couldn’t have come at a better time. Anything that I can do now to prevent future skin issues is helpful.

I have one last summer hoorah coming up this weekend in California and you can bet that the Eucerin Everyday Protection lotion will be making the trip with me. I have plans to not only be spending time outdoors but I will also be running the Disneyland Half Marathon with my friend, Katie. I’ll for sure be lotioning up pre-run to protect myself from the Cali sun with nothing else than Eucerin.

Even with fall quickly approaching, I still plan on spending plenty of time outdoors and will continue to utilize this lotion. Fall football games AND tailgating, long outdoor runs, a trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley…I’ll still be in the sun plenty!

What about you? Do you have big fall plans that will keep you in the sun? What about summer? Did you have any big travels or vacations that made your summer?

Hi! Hopefully I’m allowed to be entered. My favorite vacations this summer were a lot of weekends at the beach and my trip to Naples with Brian. Also, I already like you on fb, and I don’t have twitter or I’d follow you there too.

Oh, And my fave vacation of the year had to be our first trip to the Outer Banks. A group of 12 friends and our kids went to Corolla and absolutely loved the calmness of the area. We also have a cabin we go to every weekend and that always comes in a close second.

I am kind of jealous of the Napa trip coming up, I would love to visit someday.

Congrats on the win! :) I can’t wait to get to Napa – especially as a reward after running a marathon first! Bring on the wine!!!!

Actually, I think my best trip this summer will be this weekend. I’m going to visit our family’s old lake house where I haven’t been in 25+ years. I’m going to visit with cousins that I haven’t seen in that many or more years! I’m looking forward to it!

I’m the same way – was AWFUL about it when I was young. Actually have a check up with the dermatologist this evening – ekkk!

And good choice on your honeymoon being your favorite vacation of the summer – I don’t think Craig would have accepted any other answer! :)
