Meet the Sullivans: Oh Hey, Friday!

July 18, 2014

Oh Hey, Friday!

Good Morning and Happy Friday! I feel like it has been forever since I've blogged about what we're up to around here, so today I'm just rambling on about this and that just like I would to a friend at the park and I hope you don't mind all my yammering!


Owen and I spent Thursday morning at the TOMS Warehouse Sale! I hadn't really planned on going, but we were up and out at the park when I remembered it was starting that morning, so we headed over. The line was long outside and there was a 20 minute wait to get in, but luckily for me Owen was really patient. The warehouse was filled with shoes! Everything was sorted into Women's, Children's and Men's sections and then from there by size. Each size had about two groupings of 7 boxes filled with shoes. From there you had to dig through to find the material / color / style you were looking for. The Classic style was only $22 each! And the children's were $17! It took me forever to make a decision about what to get, but in the end I left with the TOMS Classic in Ash and TOMS Classic in Dark Green, and a pair of TOMS Tiny Classics in Ash for Owen. We might be going back again this morning in hopes of finding a pair of ballet flats since they didn't have any out yesterday.

 

I never got around to recapping our little 4th of July last week, and I'm okay with that, but I just want to make sure I record the cute thing Owen said when we were watching fireworks.

I had been talking up the fireworks, America and singing him God Bless America (don't worry, I'm not going to make you listen to that) for weeks, so on the 4th he was really excited the time had finally come to see the fireworks! What's really funny is that he kept requesting that I sing "God Bless America" to him all the time, every where we went: in Target, driving in the car, while I rocked him to sleep. Anyway we're sitting out on the field at the elementary school in our neighborhood with a bunch of our family and Owen is just loving the firework show. He was "oooing" and "ahhhing" along with everyone and we were so glad he wasn't scared of the dark or the loud booms.

Well, the finale starts and he's totally blown away and says "That's God Bless America, right there!!!" Like in that moment he was just really feeling the patriotism and the song and it was coming to life right in front of him. Keith and I just looked at each other in surprise and died from the cuteness.


My new Life Planner came this week! I went with the scales design in seafoam, and I spent a good chunk of Owen's nap Tuesday filling in all the important dates. I really lucked out that it came so quickly -- I was just weeks away from running out of space! This year I also added a picture to the back, which I really like. There's nothing like a nice new, fresh planner to make me feel extra organized!


I finally finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green a couple weeks ago. It was a great book, and I loved the story. It was well written, an easy read and I came to really like and care for the characters by the end of the book. And now I can't wait to see the movie! After finishing the book I was really in the mood for another good read, so I dove right into Orphan Train by Christina Baker Klin. I finished this book in three days! It was that good, in my opinion. I liked that it bounced back and forth between two different stories and time periods, although I really enjoyed reading Viviana's story a lot more.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened to the public today! I have been eying this Moon & Lola Personalized Script Monogram Pendant Necklace the whole time the card holder pre-sale was going on. I was so excited to see this morning that the it's under $60! It was promptly added to my shopping cart and purchased. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Linking this post up with Karli & Amy for "Oh Hey, Friday"!

I'd love to get Caleb some tiny TOMS - waiting for a Zulily sale since we don't have any warehouse sales around here (that I'm aware of! )

I love that you got your Toms for a great price! I love my toms and I got them on sale for $18 once. Super comfy and so versatile. I just wish the price wasn't so steep! I'd love to get some mini Tom's but for the price they are and the amount of time Palmer would wear them, not worth it!

Courtney said...

Ooooh I LOVE that planner! Such a great choice!!

We are toms lovers over here too :) I have the crochet and Abigail has the natural color. Love em!

I read TFIOS recently and truthfully wasnt a big fan. I have been VERY interested in Orphan Train and would love to give that one a read!
