Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

HAPPY happy Friday!! 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:

| ONE | Piggy Banks Owen's cousin Amanda made him this adorable ceramic ducky piggy bank for his birthday and he has really gotten into putting coins in it lately. I can get him away from almost anything by asking him if he wants to put some money in his "ducky bank". He's so careful with the coins and looks so serious when he's putting his money in. It is getting pretty full from us putting so much money in it, so I'm thinking we'll have to add one of these cool Big Belly Banks to our collection of kid stuff really soon.

Circle of Moms Top 25 NorCal Moms - 2013 - Vote for me!

| TWO | Please Vote! I was nominated for Pop Sugar's Circle of Moms Top 25 NorCal Mom Blogs! I'm not sure how I got nominated, or by who, but I'm pretty excited! Voting ends Aug 13, 2013 at 4pm PS, so if you have a minute please pop on over and vote for me!You can vote once a day, so if you remember, I'd love your vote!

| THREE | I'm so not ready for Fall and all the (super duper cute) autumn clothing (that I can't wait to buy), but I will not complain about all of the great deals now that the Summer stuff is going on sale. The sandals were on sale this week at Target for only $10. Such a deal, and they look great with a pink pedi and a cute sundress. 

| FOUR | In less than a week Keith and I will be celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary. Geez, three years? You have to be kidding me! A lot has changed in three years and it has zoomed right by us! We'll be celebrating our actual anniversary at home with the little man, likely showing him our wedding video (CANNOT wait for that!!) and then next weekend we'll be having a nice dinner out sans super cutie. The 3 year anniversary gift is supposed to be leather, kinda lame.

| FIVE | Owen has become quite the little boss. He knows what he wants and he is not afraid to demand it. His favorite new demand is to tell people to "SIT!!!" with him. He'll tell you to sit while patting the ground next to him, the couch, the pillow in the bed. Keith came home from the gym one day this week and peeked into our room to see if Owen was up. Owen and I were sitting in bed drinking our babas (milk for him, coffee for me) and when O saw his dada he said, "Hey, dada! SIT!" while patting the bed next to him. Keith (and his sweaty gym clothes) couldn't resist. How could you?

Hope you all have a happy weekend!
