High Five for Friday

Hey y’all!

This Friday post feels rushed because I’m trying to get through a bunch of work because MY PARENTS ARE COMING INTO TOWN! YAY! 😀 I am SO excited! Anyway, here are a few highlights from this week –

ONE. My painted counter was one the top 5 posts last week from the Crafty Thursday Obsessions hosted by StaceyKendraMichelle, and Julie‘s blogs. I’m so excited and so honored! What parties do y’all link up with?

TWO. So when I was being productive last weekend, I was going in and out of our outdoor closet off of the deck. I saw a big roach and killed him with some spray adhesive. You gotta do what you gotta do, right? Anyway, that was gross enough but then when I went to throw his body in the trash can (still in the outdoor closet), I found a mouse! I didn’t expect to see a mouse looking back at me when I looked in the trash can! I think I screamed. I calmed myself down and asked Matt what to do. I tried to be brave and took the whole trash can outside and put it all (roach carcass, mouse, and all!) into the dumpster. Yuck! I’m hoping that mouse was the last one we’ll have to deal with.

THREE. One of the projects that I did last weekend was to paint some plain vases. I posted about it on Monday. Did you see it? I’m still loving this – the vases were so easy to do and so fun!

FOUR. On Monday morning I had to go to the dentist. Not a great way to start the week off, right? Well this was actually a highlight because they did not tell me that I need to floss more. Woohoo! 😀

FIVE. Matt wanted to celebrate with a coworker who gets to start in a new role in their department, so he went to Gigi’s Cupcakes on Thursday. Matt is so sweet that he bought a peanut butter cup cupcake for me, too! It was amazing! I definitely had a sugar rush (and crash) at work, but it was so worth it.

OK, I’m off to do some more work. I can’t wait to see my parents! I’ll tell y’all about it next week. 😀
