Five on Friday - November 27, 2015

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!  Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know we had a winner of a day and my belly is still full from our feast.  We were blessed to have lots of family visit us.  My mom, Kayla, and I are hitting the stores today in hopes crossing some names off our Christmas lists.

Today is also a special day because it's my mom's birthday.  Happy birthday Mom!  I'm lucky to be able to spend the whole day with her having fun shopping.

So before we head out the door for some retail therapy, here's my five for this week.

1.  Pentatonix Sings Joy to the World
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, I'm ready to bust out the Christmas tunes.  Have you heard Pentatonix's version of Joy to the World?  Love it!  Check it out here ~

2.  Wooden Advent Calendar
It's that time of year for the advent calendars to make their debut.  When Ian was little, one of the highlights of December was adding ornaments to our felt advent calendar.  It was a tradition that meant so much to both Ian and I.  This Melissa & Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar looks like one you could have in your family for years.  Love this one!  Click HERE to purchase and start your own family advent calendar traditions.
Check out these adorable phrase bracelets by Amy Waltz Designs.  Are they not the greatest!?!  If you are looking for that special Christmas gift that really sends a powerful message, this could be just what you're looking for.  If you were getting one, what would yours say?  I'm loving the one that says, "I choose to be happy".

4.  Call Santa
Would your kids like to phone in their Christmas list straight to Santa?  Here's a fun number to reach him.  Santa's message is adorable!  

5.  So true....

Hope your Black Friday is all you want it to be!  If you're going out shopping, remember to be kind ~ Santa might be watching!

  1. Those bracelets are totally gorgeous! Personally, I would consider Black Friday shopping to be more stressful than enjoyable, but I realize that's probably just me. (I don't like huge crowds, or being trampled. ;) )

    Best of luck with all your shopping today!

  2. I couldn't agree more with that meme. People go absolute bonkers on Black Friday. I know there are good deals to be had but I just don't have the patience for it. I'm also in Canada and were nothing like the traffic your stores get.
    Continue on with your lovely long weekend and enjoy yourself! ;) xo

  3. I love that lil advent calendar!!! I might have to snatch one up today!! =)

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!! Melanie | Blog: Toots + Dill

  5. Love this bracelets! And boy do I miss going through the paper during thanksgiving on the hunt for Christmas deals! Happy Friday xxx

  6. I love those bracelets! I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  7. We always go to the Bluffs and have never encountered a problem. My brother was patrolling in Manchester and they didn't have anything major either. Rumor has it that Walmart saw the lowest numbers ever this year so can't wait to see what is said once its all over!

  8. Hope you had (have--if you're still out!?) fun shopping today... I am not sure I could ever do it myself (way too nervous about crowds like that), but I know it's an activity that many enjoy and must be a lot sales! Hope you snag some good stuff today :)

    I love those bracelets--super cute!

  9. Happy birthday mom!! Those bracelets are adorable! I can never find bangles that fit my tiny wrists, drives me nuts!! Hope you had plenty of luck with your shopping today!

  10. Great list! Pentatonix is definitely top of my list too!!

  11. i really, really, really need to get those bracelets on my list. ;)
