Meet the Sullivans: Friday Five

Friday Five

Happy Friday everyone! It's Fall-oween time, my friends! To be honest, I'm not that into Halloween myself. My birthday is October 28th, just days before Halloween, so growing up I often had black & orange costume parties, which kind of just leaves me feeling like meh about the holiday. BUT Owen is really into Halloween, and it is his very favorite holiday, so it has been given a new whole new life in my eyes!

| ONE | Last weekend we decorated the outside of the house for Halloween with TONS of fake cobwebs, skeletons, tombstones, spiders and the like. Seriously, I think we have more Halloween decorations than anyone in our neighborhood. Owen is in Halloween lover's heaven! This weekend we'll be adding some real pumpkins to the mix too.

| TWO | Then, on Wednesday, after the house keepers came, we decorated the inside of the house a bit. I'm scaling it back a bit this year because I really don't want to deal with all the clutter, and the clean-up... YaknowwhatImean? I decided the best time to decorate was after the house was clean because it's also when everything is the neatest and it was so much easier to decorate!

| THREE | Owen has been having such a great time at school lately! He really loves going to school everyday, although he does have one small complaint: that the teachers get to do all the talking, and in his opinion that's "not fair". I laughed out loud for a split second when he told me this, because I know our boy likes to chat and I can just picture him sitting there with a million things to add to the conversation. I quickly reigned it in though when I realized he was serious. I can't believe he'll be in Kindergarten next year at this time!

Oh, and he got to be the "helper" in school yesterday, which was very special to him. He reported back that he got to be at the front of all the lines, put the letters of his name on the board, check the weather and report it back to the class, and hold the flag.

| FOUR | A little house keeping... those of you who have a Blogger blog, have you noticed that your blogroll is missing from your site? I noticed this week, and then saw that other people were complaining about missing theirs. I'm so bummed! I use the blogroll on my blog to quickly see new posts from my favorite blogs, and being on other people's blogroll often drives some great traffic to my site. So this weekend I'm hoping to find some time to re-link all those blogs from my list. Anyway, just had to complain about that for a minute.

| FIVE | Let's talk TV for a sec. Keith and I started watching Westworld last weekend and I am obsessed. Have you watched it? Here is the show in a nutshell: The series takes place in fictional Westworld, a technologically advanced, Western-themed amusement park populated completely by synthetic androids dubbed "Hosts", who cater to high paying visitors dubbed "Newcomers", also known as "Guests", who can do what they wish within the park without fear of retaliation from the Hosts. I'm not usually into Scifi, but this is SO good!

Now we're off to start the weekend! I hope you have a great one!
