Meet the Sullivans: Friday Five

Friday Five

Hello, and happy Friday! My big goals for today are to make the boys pancakes for breakfast and make it to the gym. It's supposed to be a rain-free weekend, so I'm thrilled! Here's my five...

| O N E | Owen helped me decorate for Easter earlier his week and really took charge. He had some great ideas about putting eggs all over the place, but I convinced him it might be smart to keep them out of Luke's reach in in some kind of container. He obliged! I think his favorite piece of decor were these cute little rabbits. He said they're his "pets"... we need to get this boy a dog!

I forgot I had made these cute yarn eggs last spring, so that was a nice surprise when we opened our Easter decor box. They were really easy to make and I LOVE how they turned out!

| T W O | Owen's class had a field trip to the fire station this week! I totally remember hearing they do this in Pre-K when I toured the school years ago and I have been looking forward to it for Owen ever since. 

I knew it would be sooo much fun for him! One of the fire fighters opened up some time for questions (a pretty brave thing to do with a room full of 4 and 5 year-olds!) and O had the chance to ask a couple questions ... he wanted to know why fire fighters have fire dogs and how do fires start. Apparently the fire dogs were used back in "olden times", those are O's words, to help keep the horses who pulled the fire wagon focused and alert. 

I think this is going to be Owen's new favorite fun fact to share!

| T H R E E | This Paleo Chicken Pajita Bowl is one Pinterest recipe I keep making again and again, so I thought I'd share. How often do you try a recipe from Pinterest and have it turn out terrible? So it's nice to hear from a real person when one turns out right, right? I always worry if it's "enough" for Keith, but it always ends up being filling and satisfying.

| F O U R | I bought a pair of white jeans about a month ago and still haven't been brave enough to wear them. It has been a long time since I've felt like rocking a pair of white pants and I'm still not sure I can. I think they look good, but I just don't know if I can keep them clean! My kids are messy and I don't exactly live a life of leisure -- there's a lot to clean around here. Anyway, they fit so well and are super comfy, so I recommend them if you're looking for a cute relaxed pair of white denim!

| F I V E | I'm looking for a good charcoal mask. I've seen some friends try a couple on social media and some of these masks look down right terrifying! I don't mind something a little harsh, but I don't want to feel like I'm peeling my skin off my face unless it's really worth it. I did order this one off amazon because the reviews seemed pretty good, but it won't arrive for weeks, so in the meantime I'd love to hear if you've tried one? What can you recommend?

That's all from me! Have a great weekend and don't forget to turn your clocks forward on Sunday for daylight savings!
