Five on Friday

Today I'm linking up with Darci, Natasha, Christina and April for this week's edition of Five on Friday. I always read EVERYONE's post so I figured I would participate.

I went to the doctor for my "yearly" check up and had high blood pressure for the second year in a row. I'm talking 140ish/90ish. I will admit that I hadn't eaten anything that morning and had guzzled 3 cups of coffee (my appt. was at 9:30 a.m.) but it still shouldn't have been that high. My doc wants to me to pay more attention to my sodium intake and increase my workouts. I've been doing this for two weeks and have lost around 5lbs now I just need to take my blood pressure. Keep your fingers crossed that it's come down. High blood pressure and heart issues run in my family but I'm determined to try everything so I don't have to be on medicine.

I've embarked on a new adventure/opportunity to help pay off some debt and helps others along the way. It couldn't have come at a better time. It'll require a blog post of its own. If your my Facebook friend you already know what this is. Momma Kim is even embarking on this journey with me! Love 
when the Lord answers prayers.

It's official we're getting the inside of our house painted the week of Thanksgiving. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. It's been a long time coming. Having someone paint your walls isn't cheap folks! We've decided on Revere Pewter for the common areas like the hallways, living room and dining room and then Buxton Blue for the Master Bedroom and a shade lighter for our master bath. They are both Benjamin Moore colors. Next on our list is painting some furniture that was given to me and ordering our new sectional. I've been scouting the Macy's Thanksgiving and Black Friday Sales Ads. Then hanging pictures. I can't wait to show the after pictures and also having fiends over to enjoy it!!! 

This is Revere Pewter

I just want to brag on my husband. I wouldn't be the person I am now without him. He brings out the good in me and has built my confidence up over the past 8 years. He supports me in everything I do with only a "little" bit of skepticism. And he is the best dad to our angel bear Mable. Gosh, I love that man!

It's Friday....that in itself is amazing. We don't have a bunch of plans. My cousins' 3rd birthday party is tomorrow and we might go to dinner with one of my Besties and her "friend" tonight but other than that I plan on cozying up with my new book and enjoying being with my little family!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
