Meet the Sullivans: Let's Party: The Ultimate Blog Party Link Up

Let's Party: The Ultimate Blog Party Link Up

Like I told you guys earlier in the week, I love to write this blog but I love reading my favorites even more. This is my first year joining the Ultimate Blog Party. What is it? Essentially everyone who wants to join the party writes a post telling a little about themselves and then links it up. Then everyone hops around checking out all of the other blogs who've linked up.

So, for all of you who are stopping by for the first time, here is a little bit about me: 

I'm wife to Keith and mom to Owen (almost 15 months!)! Keith and I have been married for over 2.5 years.

Formerly a Catholic school Kindergarten teacher, I’m now a stay-at-home mom--and I love it!

Keith and I were born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and still live here today. Together and separately we've lived in San Mateo, Foster City, San Diego and Santa Barbara. We think this is the best possible place to live--we enjoy the safety and quietness of living in the suburbs, but are only twenty minutes away from all the fun the big city has to offer.

Meet the Sullivans began as a creative outlet for me to share recipes and photos, as well as a way to share and chronicle our journey as husband and wife, and now as a family.

I love reading (I'm reading The Paris Wife right now!), cooking + baking (here's the latest recipe I've shared), snapping photos with my Canon DSLR, shopping, a cold cocktail, entertaining, pedicures and any TV show or movie with singing & dancing.

This blog is my way of 'journaling' about all of the fun we have, things I cook, watching Owen grow (it's happening so fast), places we go, neat finds and my random thoughts.

You can follow me here:  Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Learnist

I hope you'll hang around and check things out, and stop back often! And please don't forget to introduce yourself!

Hello there! Stopping by on the UBP2013 party train. It's my first party too. I've only made it to the Bay area ONCE and I don't count it since it was at 0300 in the morning as we were heading to OR from San Diego during Christmas and Hubs refused to stop to let me see anything lol
