Meet the Sullivans: Friday Five

Friday Five

Hey there! I'm so thrilled it's Friday, because we have a nice long weekend ahead of us! Owen has today and Monday off and I think he is really ready for four days of r&r -- Kindergarten is exhausting, so I hear.

| O N E | Owen started soccer practice this week! He is the biggest kid on the team, which always surprises me. I don't think of him as being tall or big or whatever but when he's in a group of other boys his age it always strikes me. He's growing quickly right before my eyes! He had a great time, but he was beat after 45 minutes in the 93+ degree heat. Their first game is next weekend!

| T W O | Earlier this week I asked what you all do about a fridge like ours that's not magnetic. A few people suggested a cute cork board and I was like duh, why didn't I think of that! What a great solution. I found this one the next day at HomeGoods for $19! It's really light, because the frame is actually a plastic made to look like wood. I hung it tucked away around the side of the refrigerator that faces the kitchen table. This ways it's accessible without having all the clutter right out in the open!

| T H R E E | Luke and I were in Target yesterday and I saw they have a new women's line A New Day. Some of the stuff is pretty cute! I bought these two tops. I'm not sure I love the cold-shoulder one yet -- it always takes me a while to get on board with some trends. I bought the lace-up one in long sleeve and it's so soft and will be super easy to throw on with anything.

| F O U R | One of my most popular posts from a few years ago was when I shared my drug store beauty routine. I am no make-up expert at all, but I know what works for me and it's whatever is SIMPLE and worth the money I've paid for it. Anyway, here are a few of my favorites lately for a quick 5-minute face: 
  • Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara came in a gift with purchase! It is amazing and gets me full comes off easy at night too. 
  • LipSense Carmel Apple with Glossy Gloss is my current favorite lip color! It lasts forever and this color is so pretty for transitioning from summer to fall. 
  • Anastasia Brow Definer has been life changing for my eyebrows. I think they've been thinning as I've gotten older and I really feel more pulled together when I'm wearing this. 
  • Sonia Kashuk blush for a inexpensive brand this one goes on way better than the more expensive ones I've bought in Sephora. 
What are your current beauty favorites?

| F I V E | All sorts of new, fun places are popping up around our neighborhood and a few weeks ago we got to test out some samples of the new ice cream shop, Tin Pot, that will be opening SOON (fingers crossed!) around the block from our house. They had a little ice cream social for the residents in our neighborhood with a big spread of flavors and toppings. The vanilla was the BEST vanilla ice cream I have ever had in my life. Keith and I are in serious trouble when they finally open!

Well, now we're off to enjoy the day! Tomorrow is date night for us -- trying out a new restaurant and seeing a movie, so it's going to be a real treat! Have a lovely weekend!
