II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Sure ya, get a tan...but not all in one session!

So, I haven't said a whole lot about this yet because I am saving it for a really time-consuming post where I hope to put pictures and all...but in about a month and 2 days...Matt and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary! We are hoping/planning to take a weekend getaway without the kids to celebrate. This being said...I have decided to start tanning to try to hopefully have some color by that time. (in case we go somewhere bathing suit friendly). You KNOW I am also furociously trying to lose weight too....but more about that tomorrow with my Wednesday Weigh-In. Anyhow, so today after my work-out at the gym, I tanned. It was all good and fine until I realized I forgot to tell the girl HOW LONG I wanted to go in for. Turns out I stayed the whole 20 minutes! I am burnt from head to toe and every crevice in between! Wow...who knew wearing a bra could be SO painful! Even my nostrils are burnt I think! I had to go to a home party tonight at a friends house and I felt like such a dork with my blazing-red face! I wore a hat to hopefully distract from it. Who knows! ha ha
Anyhow, lesson learned....I will be sure and tell the girl how long I want to go in for next time!

This cracked me up! You really wanted to look like a lobster didn't you?! haha Love ya girl...get some burn cream with aloe on your skin ASAP. :)

You can use peppermint oil in the essential oil section by vitamins. It sounds weird and you smell like a candy cane, but it takes the sting right out and I don't think you peel as much either. Take it from a fair-skinned friend that burns way to often for her own good.

I always take an aspirin to get the sting out. And sometimes I soak a wash cloth in milk and apply it to the burned areas, that works pretty good and gets the redness out. Then again, if it's your whole body, you'll probably just end up smelling like sour milk - lol. Hope it clears up quick. At least you'll be left with a nice tan when it does :)
