Hey Friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday with your families. Whether you are having Labor Day party’s or just hang at home, today is a great day to relax.
Is that what I am doing? Of course not! I always feel like I have to do something, whether the girls and I are visiting friends and family, or I am doing a DIY project at home. Which is what I am doing today! It’s almost done and I cannot wait to show you all the finished product. I decided to refinish a pink dresser and paint it “linen white” with chalk paint. I have heard a lot of good things about chalk paint and so far so good! It dries super fast and you only need one or two coats to get the coverage you need. It also dries with a pretty matte finish! I have not bought any wax yet to finish it up, but I read today that it is almost better to put a clear sealant on top instead of wax; so that is what I plan to do. I will keep you all posted once I am finished! Please, if you have any suggestions on what to use.. wax or sealant, please let me know.
Now, I wanted to share with you the great news! I am so happy to say that Michael and I FINALLY got to have a date day last Sunday! It was as if God knew exactly what I needed to start off the week right! I had a horrible week that week, and was very down and that little time we got to spend together on Sunday was what we needed to lift our spirits. So we went to lunch at a restaurant in the highlands called The Eagle. It is southern style food and was absolutely amazing! We both got the fried chicken, and shared their Mac and cheese, and greens. After we ate we went and got ice cream at Comfy Cow. One thing we used to do on every date we went on was get ice cream, and we enjoyed every bite! I cannot remember the last date we went on, so I cherished every second I got with my hubby and hope that we do not have to wait much longer until the next date. I want to also say thank you to my cousin Lindsey who so willingly watched our crazy kids just so we got that time together! Lindsey it means more to me than you’ll ever know!
Michael is at work today unfortunately BUT I am having my family out for chili and maybe some pumpkin beer! (y’all know Fall is my FAVORITE). I am going to get back to my DIY project and will be posting final pictures in a couple days!
Happy Sunday Funday everyone!
