Meet the Sullivans: 5 on Friday

5 on Friday

Hey friends! I'm linking up again this week with Darci of [the good life], April of A. Liz Adventures, Christina of Carolina Charm, and Natasha of Hello! Happiness for 5 on Friday! Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning: 

1. I am so excited about the new Erin Condren Life Planners! They will be available for purchase Jun 4th. You may have seen my reviews for my last two planners (2011-2012 and 2012-2013), so you know I love their products! Erin made some great improvements on the Life Planner last year and she added some more great improvements this year too! I'm most excited about the space for logging exercise / meal planning / baby stuff.  I've been wanting a space like this in my planner for a while. I can't WAIT to see the new cover designs they developed this year!


I'm kind of loving the Paisley cover for my next planner. I have a set of EC Paisley notepads and they look so pretty. What do you think?



2. Did I tell you we're taking Owen to Disneyland this (late) Summer? We have never taken him anywhere overnight---and Keith and I love Disneyland and we've both always wanted to take our kids there "someday", and well, "someday" has arrived! I spend a lot of time running through scenarios and plans in my head to help me get us prepared. We still have months before we go, but I think I'll need that much time to collect / figure everything out. You can never be too prepared!

3. I thought I would be able to get through an entire post without talking about or showing pictures of food, but that obviously ain't gonna happen! This Talenti Sea Salt Caramel Gelato has been tempting me from inside the freezer of my Safeway for weeks and after bailing on the cleanse I have ran full force into the arms of it. Seriously, if you haven't tried this stuff you have got to. It is that good. I'm curious about the other flavors. Do you have a favorite?


We tried Kevin & Amanda's Spicy Sausage Pasta this week and it was really really good. I made ours without the spice because I wanted Owen to try it. Keith asked if next time we can try it with the spiciness. I liked the flavors a lot and that it was a pretty quick dinner---you use one pot for the while thing!

4. Let's talk Television. Most of our TV shows are wrapping up for the Summer. The Office is over for good. We watched the Modern Family finale last week. I've considered watching the Nashville finale again, because it was so great.

We've still got Mad Men (so happy to see Betty and Don getting along long enough to enjoy a family moment with their son -- I almost cried because it made me so happy to see them be a family for just a few minutes) and Arrested Development just came back on Netflix with all new episodes. What are you watching? Do you watch any of these shows too?


5. I finished up the children's table and chair set I told you about last week. I'm so happy with how it all turned out! I'll be sharing some photos, the paint colors and sources next week.



Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend everyone!  I'm looking forward to spending some time with my sweet little guy and my handsome big guy too!

Ok, so this gelato has been haunting me for a couple of months and I have yet to try it! I fear that I will become an addict and therefore postpone my weight loss!--LOL. I believe you have just convinced me, tho!!!

E Hayes said...

Chairs look great, can't wait to see the set!

rachel said...

Oh my goodness that gelato looks amazing! Will definitely have to try. The chair looks so good too! I'm very impressed. :)

Shana said...

I am so excited about the new planners! I went with a different kind last year and it was just not the same. I too love the paisley but am very excited to see the new options as well :)

Vanessa said...

Guilty--I watched the Nashville finale twice :) SO GOOD! And the chair looks great…I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Natasha said...

Leah Herring said...

I can't wait to be able to have dairy again and try that gelato! And I love the new planner features. I have a coupon saved for my planner at the end of the year. I have the paisley right now and love it!

Liz said...

I love love love the chairs! Can't wait to see the finished product :)

As far as Disneyland goes, it's actually a lot easier then you would think :) we've taken mason twice now and as long as we bring the stroller and make sure he can nap a little, it is a great day for all! Have fun!

That sausage pasta looks delicious! I am addicted to Talenti, I love the double dark chocolate and the coconut, but the sea salt and carmel is delicious too!

Megan said...

I'm so excited to see what you're doing with that cute chair! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Angelina Medina said...

My one piece of advice for Disbeyland is to go in October. The weather is perfect and it's not as crowded. They do freak or treating the week of Halloween and you need a special ticket for it, but all the rides are empty! It's seriously the best time to go!
