Meet the Sullivans: 5 on Friday

5 on Friday

I'm linking up this morning for a new series being hosted by some of my favorite bloggers! Every Friday Darci of [the good life], April of A. Liz Adventures, Christina of Carolina Charm, and Natasha of Hello! Happiness will be hosting a 5 on Friday link up. All you have to do is make a list of 5 things and link it up. It could be 5 things you want to check off your today list this weekend, 5 things you're loving lately or 5 things you're thankful for. You can really go in any direction!

1. Acro Yoga - Last Friday I was at the gym doing my regular workout before Owen and I went to his swim class. I was watching Kelly & Michael and they had this man and woman on doing Acro Yoga. Have you heard of it? I hadn't and I am so obsessed now. I've made everyone I know what the video. I am so impressed by it. I immediately tried to find a studio near us, and success! I did! Now I just have to convince my very skeptical husband to try this with me!


2. Ikea LATT Table Hacks - On Thursday morning I saw Erin of Strawberry Swing and Other Thing's Children's Table Ikea Hack. Well, I got a serious itch to make one myself, so I dragged poor Owen to Ikea after his dentist appointment. We picked up the Latt table and chair set (such a steal for only $19) and the Basic Train Set. I'm excited to get started on the table and chairs this weekend! These are a few I might use as inspiration:


3. Detox Cleanse - Starting this Monday Keith and I will be trying out Dr. Oz's 3- Day Detox Cleanse. I'm not into diets, starvation and deprivation to be fit and healthy, but after reading Natasha's review it sparked my interest. Although I prefer a healthy, balanced diet to any fad I think this will be a great way to kick start more mindful eating--we've been enjoying outselves too much lately.

The cleanse consists mainly of smoothies and juices. I'm a little nervous about not having any "real food" for three whole days, so if you don't hear from me just assume I've collapsed somewhere from starvation.

4. Thirsty Thursday - I'm excited to have a regular blog topic going every week and I think this one is promising! If you missed my first Thirsty Thursday post yesterday be sure to check it out! The drinks could be anything from a blood orange martini to a peppermint hot chocolate--The possibilities really are endless!

5. The Weekend - I'm looking forward to a pretty mellow weekend with the family. We'll be seeing my mom on Saturday, I have a Ladies Lunch lined up for Sunday afternoon and Monday is totally free! I'm hoping we'll make some time for another fun Family Day!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, friends!

Those tables are So cute! I can't wait till Scarlett is old enough to get one. I love the idea of the different colored chairs too, precious!

Emily said...

The yoga is wild!! I can't imagine how awesome it would be to be able to do that! Love that we both talked about the cleanse in our 5 Things post! Maybe I will start Monday too, moral support?! My hubby will not be doing this with me. :( Love the table and chairs! Can't wait to see yours for Owen! Happy Weekend Friend!

First, I'm pretty sure I re-pinned all of your IKEA pins - so many cute ideas! Can't wait to see what you do! And I'm so curious to hear about your cleanse - today was day 2 (and final day) of the Blueprint cleanse for me. I read Natasha's post and immediately wished I had tried that first. Good luck!!

Natasha said...

Let us know how the cleanse goes! I've been thinking about doing the same thing but I'm not so sure about not eating solids for 3 days.
Good luck!
