Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on 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! I really look forward to Friday morning all week (not just cause it's the weekend!) because I love drinking my coffee and reading as many Five on Friday posts as I can before Owen wakes up!

Here are some things on MY mind this Friday morning:

All three of us have terrible colds right now. Owen and I have been bouncing the same cold back and forth between the two of us for what seems like a month, and poor Keith finally got in on the fun this week. Keith and I can handle a cold, but we feel so bad when Owen is sick. He's such a trooper, but you can just tell when he's not feeling his best. These are some of the things that have been keeping our little guy comfy this week:

sick baby

Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator - to suck the snot.

Crane Adorable Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier Elephant - to help with his dry throat.

Vicks Babyrub Soothing Ointment - to help with the stuffiness.

Little Remedies Fever Pain Reliever, Natural Mixed Berry - to help him sleep more comfortably and kill the headache I'm sure he has.

Honest Kids USDA Organic Fruit Juices - because sometimes water is boring, especially when you're sick.

Tovolo Rocket Ice Pops - to soothe his sore throat.

Yesterday I made this Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup I saw on Pinterest. It was the perfect comfort food for my little family with all our colds. And I loved that I didn't have to stand over a hot stove to make it! Love the slow cooker!

Our trip to Disneyland is in less than a month and we're gettin' ready! I bought this little contraption to hold Owen's head up in his car seat on the way down and we've booked our reservations at Goofy's Kitchen! Now the count down begins!

 The Kid Tested, Mom Approved Link-Up that I'm co-hosting with Julie, Erin, Emily, Vanessa and Erinn starts in just a few weeks! The fun starts on September 3rd, so be sure you're ready!!

Gold polka dots are by far one of my favorite patterns ever and so I had to buy these notebooks from Target in every color available! I pretty much have to buy anything I see that has gold polka dots. It's a problem. 

I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you all feel better ASAP. That delicious chicken soup should help ;) I need a gold planner... Even just seeing that gold ring holding it together made me swoon. Yay Disneyland! Yay link up party! And yay gold notebook (which my target was out of)...

I hope y'all get better soon! That soup looks delicious. And I love those notebooks! There's really nothing better than a good gold polka dot.

I am pretty sure that planners/notebooks are the #1 linkup topic right now!! How in the world do you keep your planner so organized and clean?! It's SO pretty! And how exciting about DISNEY!!!

We haven't been since right after Reagan was born! My Target didn't have those notebooks, so I made my own! Love the striped one though!!! Happy weekend! xo!

Oh man, I hope you guys get to feeling better asap!! But that yummy soup should definitely help with that, hopefully! I'm definitely storing that recipe away for future use!

And those gold polka dot notebooks? I need them in my life like yesterday. Adorable!

And, lady, I just replied to your comment about the J.Crew vest!! I am BEYOND excited about it...I may have just bought one for myself ;)

Found you through the link up! Love your blog. I've been searching for that polka dot line at Target and they are sold out all around me! :-( So sad. It is so cute! Hope y'all are feeling better!
