Meet the Sullivans: Grab Some Coffee. Let's Catch Up!

Grab Some Coffee. Let's Catch Up!

I feel like there are so many little things I want to share today, so grab some coffee 'cause this is a long one!

-I ordered the new iPhone 5 this weekend. I'm so excited for it to come in the mail. I'm going to be tracking that baby from the moment it ships until it arrives on our doorstep. My iPhone 3Gs is on its way to phone heaven. The poor baby just isn't working the way it used to and is on its deathbed.

-Last week I went to FIVE different grocery stores searching for my beloved coffee creamer (Lynadri's, Piazza, two Safeways and Target), International Delight ColdStone Creamery Sweet Cream. I had no luck. And then on the way to my mom's yesterday we stopped at Lucky's and on a whim I thought I'd just check to see if they had it and they did! And it was the last bottle on the shelf. Its the little things, right?

-Owen is saying "dada dada". He calls Keith "dada", he calls the dog "dada" and he even calls me "dada". So, we know he's not referring to Keith specifically but it's still real sweet to hear him mumble it over and over again.

-Our project of consolidating the DVD collection is almost complete. Hooray! I'm so proud of us for starting and finishing this huge undertaking within a week. Our plan for today is to tackle a few other little projects around the house, do laundry and relax.


-Our family photos are in less than two weeks and I still don't have our looks nailed down. I'm starting to panic a little.

-Last week I did a post on all the things I'm looking forward to about Fall and I forgot to include adding another blown glass pumpkin from the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival to my collection. It's a tradition that I buy a new one each year and I'm excited to chose a new color this year.


-Katy Perry's movie comes out on DVD tomorrow and I'm so excited. We'll be making a trip to Target just for that. ...and a few other necessities too of course.

-I went out for a little girls' night over the weekend in honor of my friend Hilary's 31st birthday. You may remember my post about her 30th celebration that kicked off the year of 30ths for my high school friends. We had such a wonderful time and laughed a ton! The food was amazing and the restaurant, 31st Union, is locally sustainable and gets all of its ingredients and wine, etc from California exclusively.

-It felt like it had been ages since I actually got dressed, did my hair and my make up. I felt like a real life person!

-I'm hunting for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. I've tried a fe recently and this weekend I baked chocolate chip walnut cookies using the Nestle Tollhouse (anyone else think of Friends when they hear Nestle Tollhouse?) recipe that comes on the back of the chocolate chip bag. They tasted great, but lacked the cake like consistency I'm aiming for. Please share your go to recipe!!

-Speaking of recipes, I still owe you that S'mores Cupcake recipe. I'll have it up this week, but right now I'm off to the grocery store.

Have a marvelous Monday friends!

I found THE BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe. It's the New York Times recipe. I'm sure it will pop up if you google it. Otherwise, I have it pinned here: http://pinterest.com/pin/117375134008056953

So delicious!
