Meet the Sullivans: Friday, Friday!

August 14, 2015

Friday, Friday!

I'm so excited it's Friday again! The week went by pretty quickly and I'm happy it's the weekend again so we can spend some family time together again.

Here's my five!

| O N E | Last weekend we had a whole lotta fun! We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary Friday night at home (on our actual anniversary) I cooked salmon, rosemary potatoes and green beans for dinner. We watched our wedding video together as a family and shared a bottle of sparkling cider. We didn't make it through the whole video, just through the ceremony and speeches, but it was fun to reminisce. Owen felt super special drinking his cider out of a special cup. He asked for it again the next morning, nice try kiddo!

Keith brought me roses. Getting flowers from my husband never gets old! 

Saturday night Keith and I went out to dinner at Town! We both had their famous Warm Napa Cabbage Salad and the Prime Rib. We were beyond stuffed after dinner. We still had some time to spare afterward, so we went and did something we used to do before children get coffee and wander through a book store together. We obviously know how to live it up on a Saturday night!

| T W O | I cleaned out Owen's toys over the weekend, which is something I have been meaning to do for a while. I went through every box of toys, including bath toys, with a black trash bag for things to toss and a clear one for toys to donate. I put all the toys that have lots of pieces, like his Melissa and Doug clock and his tools, and put them in a larger zip lock bag, so the pieces don't end up all over the place. I already had separate containers for dinos/animals/lizard, transformers, legos, etc., but from time to time they get mixed up and it took me hours to re-organize them.

| T H R E E | Speaking of toys, we've been waiting on getting Owen Magna-Tiles for about a month now. I think we're going to wait and get him a large set of the clear ones for Christmas, but I was super close to getting him these solid color ones at Target when I saw they were on clearance for $24. Great deal right?

| F O U R | We exchanged busy bags with some of our friends recently and I found this Popsicle Stick Pattern busy bag on The Connection We Share, and Owen has had a lot of fun with it! It's a little harder than I thought it would be, especially if he has to recreate the pattern off of the mat. He also likes making his own shapes using the popsicle sticks.

| F I V E | I've started a Pinterest board for all the great menu plans and recipes people share on my Menu Monday link up, so if you'd like to check it out just follow this link: Menu Monday - Meet the Sullivans. I'll be pinning all the recipes on Monday too if you'd like to link up!

And now we're off for the day! Have a great weekend! xoxox
