I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
It probably doesn't surprise you that big chunky blinged-out ones in the front are mine.
The thing about a great day is that it has so many benefits, like a boost to your mood and energy. Unfortunately the sun’s UV rays can also damage your skin, even burn it! The UV rays can also cause wrinkles, sun spots, even skin cancer! Look, skin cancer runs in my family. And I recently found out two family members about 3 generations ago died from it! So how do you protect the biggest organ you have?
Use sunscreen every day! Be generous. Skin cancer can develop on lips, too, so use a lip balm or lipstick that includes sunscreen. Even though sunscreens are great, they can’t protect you completely so avoid the sun if you can.
When outdoors, reapply sunscreen every two hours! If you’re around water, or get sweaty, then you have to reapply even more often.
Wear sunglasses! Look for ones that block 99 percent of UV rays. They'll help protect your eyes including the skin around them which will show lines very easily.
