Meet the Sullivans: FRIDAY THIS & THAT

May 20, 2016


Hey there! It's Friday and Owen is in school, Luke is sleeping, so I'm finally getting a minute to sit down and do a little catching up. Here's a little bit of what's been going on with us lately!

What's new with the boys? The weather has been really nice this week -- minus the wind we're having today -- so we've been outside A LOT this week. Owen stays busy outside searching for bugs and trying to catch lizards, and Luke and I love watching him. Luke's pink eye is all cleared up thanks to 4x daily eye drops, but now we think he's teething. Poor guy has been up every hour for the last two nights! We moved on from bananas last week to applesauce and sweet potatoes this week, both of which he LOVES!

We've been trying hard to cut back on eating out and ordering takeout for the last few months, so I've needed to find new ways to barely have to cook! No seriously, I love cooking, but not when it includes the witching hour, so a few times a week a give myself a "break" and cook something super simple. This week I doctored up some frozen Trader Joe's fettuccine with some shrimp, red pepper flakes and fresh parm. It was delicious and no one new the difference!

I don't think I've shared this here yet, but we are in the process of buying a townhouse! The foundation is just being laid (this is a shot of a neighbor's), and it won't be ready until the end of the year at the earliest, but we are SO excited! I'll share more details as it all develops.

The school year is almost over, and while I'm really going to miss being in the classroom with Owen I am NOT going to miss bringing Luke with me when I do. All I can say is thank goodness for the Lillebaby carrier! He's not a fan of the Ergo, but he does tolerate being strapped forward facing while I man the art table or the snack table.

I have a huge pile of O's art work for the year on the dining room table and I'm looking for a way to do something with it. I've saved all the really great little projects, but there are a lot of colorful little paintings that I still need to take care of. I'm thinking this would be a really fun way to display them! That's all from us for now! I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Oh Hey Friday with September Farm and The Farmer's Wife.
