High Five for Friday

Hello, my friends!!  Can you believe that after today there is only one more Friday in the month of May?!  This week was absolutely beautiful..we had perfect weather..plenty of sunshine, and it wasn't super hot.  My morning and evening walks were pleasant, and I even took a little dip in the pool.

Trey walked home from school one day, while I planted some flowers in my Mom and Dad's pool yard.  The upside to planting flowers by the course, the pool!

As soon as Trey got home from school he asked if he could take a little dipster in the pool...It was a little cold, but he wouldn't admit it.  He was a real trooper..a real cold one, but still!

Anyone that knows me well knows that I heart pancakes!!  Seriously, sometimes I crave them so much, and usually can fight the urge, but this week I found a homemade buttermilk pancake recipe, and I couldn't resist the urge...I just so happened to have gone to the grocery and bought some buttermilk this was for another recipe, but what are the was a was like a higher power - more like my subconscious telling me to do it, do can walk farther this weekend and drink more water, but puhlease make the pancakes - just do it!!...So, I felt that the best thing for me to do at the time was to listen...I didn't want to disappoint my subconscious.

I totally caved!!

** This is the bloggers pancakes never turn out pretty..they are always a hot pun intended.

They were so good, but totally not worth it.  Later today I will totally regret it because I will be bloated and feel gross.  You can pin the pancake recipe by clicking here.

My husband and my son let me sleep in on Mother's Day...they didn't really let me..I just did it anyway!  I must have been in la la land because they had to wake me up around 9:00 A.M. They made me close my eyes and walk into the kitchen where they surprised me with cards, fresh flowers, breakfast, and they had even gone to the grocery store for me...all before I woke up.  How sweet are they!! They love me..they really love me, and I am very blessed!!

Since, summer is right around the corner I have been wanting to tan.  In reality it would take me until the end of the summer to reach my desired color if I chose to use the sun as my only means of tanning.  Since I have to wear such a strong SPF, and my time in the sun (not covered up) is limited I have gone the self tanning route for the past few years.  Each year I still get mad at Lupus..I will never forget how before I got sick I had the most amazing dark brown tan and would get it in only a few days by laying out in the pool, or at the lake. Some things are easy to adjust to, but not being able to stay in the sun like I used to..I don't think I will ever get used to.  On the bright side...maybe in 30 years I will have less wrinkles than I would have...had I been able to sun bathe like I wanted to. 

That was a really long..thinking out loud story.  The point was to share my favorite self tanner.  It is simple to use, it does not streak, and it is a pretty natural brown.  You can use it as little, or as much as you would like. When I tan I will only use it twice a week.  You will find this tanner at most stores that carry sun safe products.

I began this blog on February 9th of this year, and this week I wrote my 30th blog post. If you missed post #30 it was a delicious side dish can see it by clicking here.   There is no way I could have made it this far without the support from all of you!!  I am grateful for all of you, your support, your comments, your encouragement, your suggestions, and honesty...All of the texts and emails telling me you can't wait to read my next post.  I keep doing it because of my amazing readers!!

Happy 30th to The Way I See it!!
