Meet the Sullivans: 'round here lately

'round here lately

A little Wednesday hodgepodge post for you: 

1. I bought a really cute print for Owen's nursery from Etsy seller Earlybird Ink. I finally got around to buying a frame for it. The little quote is so sweet : "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow". I love being a "boy mom" and thinking that my little guy will someday be a "might oak" of a man brings joyful tears to my eyes. Being a mommy is such an important job. Now I just need to get Keith to hang it for me!

2. Last week I drove by Sergio's Pasta shop that I've told you about and found that they had closed. Closed! Out of business. I'm so sad. Well, it turns out there is another fresh pasta shop 1.5 blocks up the street. I bought two kinds of raw fresh pasta and two sauces; vodka and alfredo. They were great and I think I'll go back. I say I think I'll go back only because the owner was a bit arrogant when I mentioned the closure of Sergio's Pasta shop--he pretended to not even know it existed, which I thought was really weird. Downtown San Mateo is a really small area so of course he knew it was there. Anyway, the pasta was tasty! I really want to make my own pasta again. Fresh is just exponentially better! 

3. Owen has big feet and hands. They're super cute and his toes are often curled up. He likes to kick a lot. My SIL Kelly and I dipped his little feet in blue paint last week and got his foot print for his baby book. I'm tempted to frame the leftover prints--I just love his little toesies.

4. Keith's mom watched Owen on Sunday night so we could go see The Hunger Games! I read the book over the summer while fighting early pregnancy nausea and exhaustion, finished up the second while bearing through contractions in the hospital and now I'm reading the final book during naps or while nursing. Jennifer Lawrence is a perfect Katniss. She brings the character to life and is exactly how I pictured her to be as I've been reading. I know its difficult to do a book justice in a movie, but there were a few things I didn't like about the movie. I can forgive the little in justices but what bugged me was that the relationship between Peeta and Katniss didn't get to fully develop before we were lead to believe they were "star crossed lovers". That being said I can't wait for the next movie! 

5. We celebrated our friend Jackie's 30th birthday (pictured above wearing her fun fancy hat!) this weekend at her fancy hat themed party. Is it funny that I take mental note every time we do something "for the first time" since Owen was born? Anyway, this was the second time we've been out at night together since Owen was born. We brought the little guy to my mom's and went to the party. We got there right on time and enjoyed a cocktail before it got to busy. Unfortunately we had to make it an early night

6. I recently bought these Stella & Dot earrings after seeing something similar on Good Morning America and a friend / former co-worker of mine has invited me to her Stella & Dot party this Saturday and I'm so excited! I have always wanted to go to one but have never been able to make to any I've been invited to. I adore all the Stella jewelry and this will be a fun opportunity to see it in person. Not to mention I'll be getting out of the house for a bit and have some adult conversation!

7. I'm trying to decide which one of these Erin Condren phone cases to buy. Do you like the chevron stripe? The fleur felix? Or candy lace? I can't figure out which one I like more!
