Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

HAPPY happy Friday!! I'm linking up again this week for everyone's favorite Friday link up hosted by Darci of [the good life], April of A. Liz Adventures, Christina of Carolina Charm, and Natasha of Hello! Happiness. Here are some things I've been thinking about this week:

I posted this picture on Instagram earlier this week when O went potty on his little potty for the first time. Let me give you the details (if it's too early for potty talk feel free to skip to number two!)... 

I was getting him ready for a bath and he started to go pee on the ground (per the usual for this boy) and I (probably a little too frantically) said, "No, no wait!", which caused him to stop peeing. I then scooped him up and plopped him down on the potty. As second or three later he began to go again, this time right there in his little potty. He was totally mind blow by this and we were both pretty excited. I called to Keith to come see right away and Owen wanted to sit there trying to go again and was really mad when I picked him up to put him in the bath. What a Big Boy he is! 

I want to clarify and say we are by no means potty training Owen -- we're just introducing the idea, but I'm still really proud of him.

 
My gym has a little cafe in the entry way that is always making something that smells SO freaking good (could be asiago / onion beagles / some kind of frittata thing). I have a love hate relationship with this fact. I love the smell, but I hate smelling it when I'm heading in for a workout because it automatically makes me want to drop my baby toddler off at the childcare, order whatever-it-is-that-smells-so-divine and a latte and NOT workout. Anyway, Thursday morning it got me craving lox and bagels again -- and after my workout I went to the store and bought all the fixins! It was mighty good, my friends!

 
Meredith of The Tichenor Family is hosting her Annual Scarf Swap again this year! I participated for the first time last year (see that post here!) and it was so much fun! It was how I discovered one of my favorite blogs, The Chirping Moms and met Courtney, whom I was paired up with. I'm so excited for the swap again this year and I'm looking forward shopping for a cute scarf and see who I'm paired up with this year!

 
Keith and I going to dinner at House of Prime Rib Sunday night to celebrate our anniversary! We're both looking forward to a date night (it's been weeks since our last one) and we can't wait to try this restaurant. It's been a San Francisco landmark since it opened in 1949 and I think everyone in the world has been there but us! 

Voting for Circle of Moms (by PopSugar) list of the Top 25 NorCal Mom Bloggers ends in just 4 days! I'm so excited to even be on the list and really pumped that right now I'm at #23! Thanks so much for voting!! If you can, please take a sec and vote right now! Just click the badge above!

Lex had a potty. And will show it to a home and everyone who comes through the door. But she has yet to actually USE it! I'm loving that Owen went pee-pee in his potty!!!!

That is AWESOME your gym has a cafe, that sandwich looks awesome. We have a stupid smoothie bar. I wish we had a cafe too!
