Instagram Friday. Tidal Wave.

My business comes in waves. They are usually slow and steady.  

This week a tidal wave hit. 

I'm a spray tan technician and I give my clients a healthy alternative to frying themselves under the bulbs in a tanning bed, which out here in San Diego, is very common. I swear you see tanning salons as much as you see Starbucks. Okay, maybe not that much, but you get my point. ☺

I used to tan under the bulbs myself, until I realized how much damage I was doing to my skin. I decided to save my skin once I had kids. It's funny how your perspective can change on things as we get older. Oh hindsight is always 20/20!

My tanning solutions are actually all organic and even safe to give baby bumps some color! 

Anyways, I work from home and go mobile for tanning parties and this week was a record setting week. 

I had 28 tans on the books including a bridal tanning party, lots of lovely ladies before the Marine Corps balls this time of year and those just wanting a little color before getting into those cute little costumes this weekend. 

I did 17 tans yesterday and my feet are feeling it today!! 

But I'm blessed to have so much business. 

On the weeks where the tidal waves of work hit, when I'm not holding my spray gun, I'm doing nothing but hanging with my kids and hubby...okay and reading a few blogs. ☺

So I took pictures of the simple things.

Happy Friday and welcome to all my new followers. 

I'm honored to have you. ♥
