Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Hey! I'm so excited to be joining Natasha, Darci, April and Christina for Five on Friday this week! Let's get down to it! 

one. 3 Cardboard Crafts - I love the What's Up Moms YouTube Channel, you guys! Every week I find something funny or helpful, and this week was no different. I'm keeping my eye out for a giant box to make O a little house like the one in the video. AND I think he'd love the racetrack too.

two. Pumpkin Stuff - Must have allthepumpkinstuff! Keith says he laughs picturing me having pumpkin biscotti, coffee with pumpkin creamer and pumpkin waffles for breakfast -- that'd be overkill though, right? Oh, and that Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle mix is just as good as the one sold at Williams-Sonoma, so stock up!

three. One Year & Beyond Link Up - The link-up is back for its third series, so if you'd like to share any posts that are related to the topic we'd be happy to have you join us! This is a great way to get some tips from other moms, find some mommy-camaraderie and even some extra exposure for your blog.

Here's the line up of topics:

Oct 9: Learning to love your post-pregnancy body
Oct 16: Busy Toddler Activities
Oct 23: Keeping in Shape While Caring for a Toddler
Oct 30: Sick Day Tips
Nov 6: How to Not Lose Your Patience with your Toddler
Nov 13: Favorite Toddler Outings

four. $150 Minted Giveaway - Oh and hey, did you enter the giveaway I'm hosting with If not, you still have a chance to win a $150 credit to their site! Wouldn't it be awesome to send out beautiful, personalized Christmas cards that were totally free?!

five. Gone Girl - We've got a date night planned for this weekend and it's supposed to include seeing Gone Girl (did you read the book?), which I'm super excited for. I liked the book, the reviews have been good, the previews look enticing and I've always thought Ben Affleck bares a very striking resemblance to my handsome husband (see below)... so Ben's got that going for him.

Have a lovely weekend, my friends!

I'm wishing I had a date night planned to see Gone Girl! Maybe we can fit it in next week and by then I'm certain I will have seen some reviews from some of my fave bloggers! Have fun

Unknown said...

I need to try the pumpkin waffle mix...and everything else!!! Also can't wait to hear what you think of Gone Girl. I'm hoping we get to see it soon!!

Courtney said...

He does look like Ben!! I've never connected that before but seeing them side by side I totally see it.

I'm all about the pumpkin too girl. Can't get enough.

Christina @ Still Lucky said...

I love everything in this post! I haven't been to TJ's in so long. Seeing all their pumpkin stuff makes me want to go ASAP. I'm also dying to see Gone Girl, but first I have to read the book! And I've seen seen that you tube channel before, so cute!

Unknown said...

Yum! Pumpkin everything for me too! Have fun on your date night!

So glad I found your cute blog! Give me all things pumpkin, and I'm a happy girl! Can't wait to see Gone Girl. Loved the book!

Katie Elizabeth said...

YES to all things pumpkin! We just moved and don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near us... it makes me so sad. I loved their pumpkin bread mix!

Ileana @ Illy Who said...

I'm buying that waffle mix tomorrow. I forgot last week it is officially on my list now. We saw Gone Girl this weekend, we both loved it. My husband wouldn't let me tell him anything the book he couldn't believe I read it since I normally read books with baking themes, or Hunger Games/Divergent haha. How did you like it?

Jess Scott said...

Oh my gosh, did you see Gone Girl?? I want to see it so badly!!
