Five on Friday - June 16, 2017

Raise your hand if you are excited it's Friday!!  I'm so pumped about today! I took a vacation day and Eric and I are going to pick up my parents for a little day of adventure.  You'll have to check back next week to see how it all goes down.  We're headed to Arrow Rock State Park and then to a winery in Rocheport, Missouri.  The night will be capped off in Fulton, Missouri at a balloon glow.  And the best part is I get to do it all with my parents.  I'm giddy with excitement.

Before all that action, let me share my five for this week ~

1.  Cars 3 - Driven to Win
Disney's next blockbuster is opening this weekend!  Cars 3 is opening today - just in time to wrangle the entire family into the car and head to an air conditioned theater to take a break from the summer time heat.  Here's what Movie Insider says about this episodes of Cars - "Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage."

2.  Rust-Oleum Hammered Paint and Primer
Did you see the before and after pictures of our painted patio furniture HERE?  This is the paint that made our chairs look brand new.  Eric sprayed all five our chairs and table with six cans of this magic stuff.  The finish looks like a faux job that took hours, when in reality it was just an easy single coat of paint.  I'm dreaming up more projects for him to do with some of the other colors this paint comes in.  We got ours at Home Depot.  Amazon also carries it HERE.

Rust-Oleum Universal 12 oz. All Surface Hammered Rosemary Spray Paint and primer in 1 (6-Pack)

3.  New Heinz BBQ Flavors
Have you checked out the BBQ section at the grocery store lately?  Heinz have three new flavors and I can't wait to try them.  The new flavors are Kentucky Bourbon, Hawaiian Style and Carolina Mustard.  Ideas for all three of them have been popping in my mind!  Which one sounds like it could become your new favorite?
Strip Steak with Bourbon Onion-Mushroom Sauce
Slow-Cooker Pineapple-BBQ Chicken
    20-Minute Grilled BBQ Pork Chop Sandwiches
4.  The Dry
The book sitting on my nightstand right now is The Dry.  Guys - I can barely put it down.  I'm loving this novel!  Goodreads says this, "When Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk returns to Kiewarra for the funerals, he is loath to confront the people who rejected him twenty years earlier. But when his investigative skills are called on, the facts of the Hadler case start to make him doubt this murder-suicide charge.
And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, old wounds start bleeding into fresh ones. For Falk and his childhood friend Luke shared a secret... A secret Falk thought long-buried... A secret which Luke's death starts to bring to the surface... "  Interested in adding it to your library?  Click HERE to check it out.

  1. I NEED that Rustoleum paint. How neat! I am trying to think of all the projects I could do with that can. Have the happiest and best weekend!

  2. I absolutely loved The might turn out to be my favorite for the year. The patio furniture looked so good with that special spray paint. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. That spray paint looks awesome! I have to drive to the suburbs to pick up spray paint because they don't sell it in Chicago city limits which is a bummer.

  4. I am obsessed with sauces. Those look yum! If they had a low sugar option I would buy them tomorrow. That book looks awesome. I am totally going to check it out.

  5. My boys can't wait for Cars 3. They are sooooo excited. We're hoping to get there on Sunday. Have a great time with your parents and happy father's day to your husband and dad!

  6. I wish I would have thought about repainting our last patio set. I love the new one but would have kept the old one too! LOL We are taking the boys to see Cars tomorrow! Can't wait!

  7. Ooh The Dry sounds really good!!

    I hope you have a great weekend, and yay for days off work!


  8. Happy weekend, Penny. Your little adventure on Friday sounds like it was gonna be a good day! I hope the rest of your weekend was as lovely and relaxing too! :)
