5 on Friday

Just a few things to share with you on this BEAUTIFUL Spring Friday.....

 1.  I bought this hall tree at a Garage Sale for $90 and I have been needing to paint it ever since I got it.  I was going to paint it black because just about every piece of furniture in our house is black but I'm sooooooo tired of black.  My neighbor has convinced me to go a different route and paint it turquoise.  She recently painted some furniture with Annie Sloan paint and it is amazing!!  I can't wait to get started on this project and add a new pop of color to my kitchen. 
Here is my color I'm going with....
(Annie Sloan-Provence)
And if it looks good I'll be painting a little chair I have like this for Pearson in the same color.  (Another garage sale find for $3) It's like a transition chair in between a high chair and a regular chair.  

 2.  In a few weeks Matt and I are going to do the Advocare 10-day cleanse.  I've been so bad about my eating habits lately and I'm excited to flush everything out and start fresh.  And hopefully lose the 3-4 pounds I've gained in the last few months.  I'm also hoping it will also kick start healthier eating for us.  I plan to blog all about it while we are doing it, so stay tuned!!

 3.  Pearson and I went on a walk this morning.  The weather was absolutely perfect!!
While we were on our walk, I picked up these Gap swim trunks for Pearson for $2 at a Garage Sale.  Can you tell I love Garage Sales? Ha!  I already had this navy Landsend rash guard (which I got for $2.50 at Once Upon a Child) to go with another pair of swim trunks but it matches these swim trunks perfect too.  Can't beat a new (to us) swimsuit for $4.50!!
 4.  It's time for some Spring Cleaning at The Link Home.  I'm going to be joining in on this challenge and will hopefully be able to clean out a few areas in my house.  I might even blog about the progress, we'll see though. 
Here’s the schedule:1. Drawers and Shelves (week of April 9)
2. That Pesky Closet (week of April 16)
3. Piles (week of April 23)
4. That Put-Off Project (week of April 30)

5. And the best part of my day was that I got to go on a date with this hottie tonight.  No pictures to prove it, but we did!! We dropped the little man off at the church for Parent's Night Out (seriously can't pass up $11 babysitting for 4 hours) and we went to dinner and then got dessert!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
We've got a busy one ahead of us but I'm looking forward to it all.

I've been so tempted to do advocare.

Yay!!! I think you and Matt will both see results from the cleanse!!! And you look gorgeous in your date night pic!! That's awesome that your church does a baby sitting thing for parents. :)

Kyle did the Advocare 10 day thing last year and lost quite a bit! My sister just signed up to sell and I think kyle might do it again!

Love Pearson's new swim trunks...what a great deal! I need to find some for Avery!

Can't wait to see your final painting project! I bet it will look great!

I just got some Annie Sloan paint for Hudson's new high chair also! So funny! I had to get permission from John to paint it since it was his that his grandad built. I need to go see what color I got but it's a blue color also. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!
