Pretty in Pink

I heart pink. Like a lot. I wear it, paint with it and would totally drive a pink car if my husband would ‘let’ me! {On a side note I saw a Zebra painted SUV and have concluded that, YES,  there is such a thing as too much zebra!} So back to my love of pink, once I hung pink curtains in the living room.  My husband was ok with it because it was around my birthday and he wanted to be nice, but this time when I started to carry in pink furniture, he asked me if why I was trying to emasculate the house.  I told him to be happy I only wanted a pink corner and not a pink accent wall Smile

The corner was just so DARK before, it needed some color!

Ok, maybe it’s just the table, I just felt the pink on the walls needed some a pink friend.

$20 dollar thrift store deal+ Rustoleum {berry pink and silver} with a little black glaze on the top.

I even put a little design on the top and stenciled with spray paint! Worked like a charm!

In other news we ran another 5k this weekend and I’m soooo proud of my hubs!  He ran it in 32 minutes which is 2 minutes faster than last month!! {For those of you who are new, this is his 3rd 5k and he’s never been a runner, I got him hooked!}  My time was 30:37, which is my best time to date.  I even had a super nice compliment from a stranger, she came up to me after the race and told me she was really impressed with my pace.  Sooo made my day! Smile

We had a blast and I even convinced him to do a 10k with me next month.  Hopefully it’s not 95 degrees outside! Fingers crossed 

Happy Monday!

  1. Dannnnggg Chick! That looks awesome! I would too love a pink and turquoise house. With some zebra thrown in to break up all the color.

    I'm so impressed that you guys do marathons! I never would be able to, I've never been a runner. And dang lady, you're looking goood!

  7. I think your husband deserves a special "husband of the decade" award for being OK with all that pink! There is no way mine would be OK with it. Congrats on the 5K pace...I'm shooting for a 12 minute mile at my next one in 4 weeks.

    And great job with the 5k! I remember when you were telling us that your hubs agreed to run the first 5k, and now he's at #3? That is so awesome!

  13. Did you run the Big D this weekend? I ran that race last year and thought about doing it this year but I didn't love the 5K course, I prefer doing the ones that go around White Rock Lake.

  15. I'm really digging that stencil on the table! I'll also second what someone said previously about how lucky you are to have a husband that is okay with pink! I'm over here trying my best to apply gender neutral decorating. =)
