Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Good morning and happy Friday! We've had a busy week, so we're all really looking forward to the weekend. Here's my five...

1. Owen's first Basketball practice - Owen had his first basketball practice yesterday afternoon! Most of the kid's on his team are in first grade, so he is quite a bit younger than them, but he had a really fun time. We can't wait to watch his first game this weekend!

2. I'm no make-up professional, but I know what works well for me. I buy most of my make-up at Target or Ulta and avoid pricey products. My niece gave me this Anastasia Brow Definer for my birthday this year and I love it. It is truly an amazing product! I have never been successful in filling in or enhancing my brows and always end up looking like Groucho Marx. This brow pencil is practically fool proof. I never knew what a difference a defined brown could make in the over look of my face and make up!

My last drug store beauty favorites post form a few years ago was pretty popular so I'm considering writing another one about what I'm using these days. I have a few more favorites I'd like to share!

3. Kindergarten registration and school tour - Last week I registered Owen for Kindergarten and this week Luke and I took a tour of the school. I felt a little emotional walking onto the campus for the tour. It's by no means huge but for my little guy it seems like it is. It's hard to believe he is going to be in elementary school next year.

The whole registration process has been a bit of a pain since we have to register at the school in our current neighborhood when we know he won't be going to this school in the fall. I've been concerned that by the time we have all of our proof of residence in order after our move there won't be space for him at his school and he'll be sent to another neighboring school for the year, so I applied for a transfer from our current school to the school that will be in our new neighborhood.

4. Spring Shopping - It's been freezing and wet here and I'm over it. I can't wait for the long hot days of summer to be here. In the meantime I'm browsing all the cute spring clothes that are coming out. I ordered this dress from Old Navy last week for $20 and this relaxed peplum top for $13-- what steals! I just hope they look cute on and fit right. I'll let you know!

5. POPSUGAR sent me their January Must Have box to try and it came with these adorable little Instant Happy Notes. I keep them in a drawer near O's lunch box so I can pop one into his lunch when I send him to lunch bunch at school! They're not just for kids either, there are some that would be cute to sneak into your husband's bag or even your mom's purse. A sweet little way to sneak in some "happy" for the people you love!

You can use the code SHOP5 (which never expires) to get $5 off your FIRST Must Have Box!

I hope you all have a great weekend, my friends!
