Five on Friday - November 21, 2014

Live from Charleston -- it's my Five on Friday!  We are loving it here and having so much fun despite the weather being downright cold on the cool side.  I'll be posting about the trip soon, but for now here's this week's Five on Friday.

1.  Charleston, South Carolina
I have fallen in love with Charleston, y'all!  This city has been so much fun and so rich in history.  I'm not all that into history, but Eric is and there's plenty for me to admire while he's soaking up all the history information.  I'll be blogging more about our trip, but for now I just wanted to say, I love Charleston.

2.  Fleece Lined Tights
We've been walking around Charleston all week and these babies really help keep my legs warm.  Right now, Target has their fleece lined tights on sale for $8.00 and they come in 5 colors.  I also love wearing them to work in the winter, when I run out shopping -- oh heck, I just love wearing them everywhere!  Great stocking stuffer.

3.  World Hello Day
Today is World Hello Day!  This day was established to promote world peace.  Participating is easy -- just say hello to 10 people today.  Brian and Michael McCormack created this day and believed world peace starts with communications, hence the saying hello to 10 people.  So here's to world peace -- Bon Jour!


4.  Olives
The holiday season is upon us and we will most likely be attending a party that will be serving tasty olives.  But you might be worrying about what you're going to do with the pit.  Don't swallow it!!  Choking at a party could be really embarrassing.  Here's what Emily Post says to do:
Eat olives from an antipasti platter with your fingers; you also use your fingers to remove the pit from your mouth while using your hand as a screen. The pit goes into a small dish provided, or on the side of your plate.
When olives come in a salad, eat them with your fork. Remove a pit from your mouth either with your fingers or by pushing it with your tongue onto your fork; then place the pit on the edge of your dinner plate.

5.  How true is this!?!

                                         November...The month where people who have complained on Facebook for the past 11 months become thankful for 30 days. | Seasonal Ecard

Happy weekend everyone!  Next week will be a short work week for me because of Thanksgiving and I hope you're in the same boat.  I'm looking forward to hosting Thanksgiving for my family and spending some time with them.  Hope you stop back by next week to hear all about it.


  1. I am so excited to go back to Charleston in June. I was there for less than a day & I was in love. I really need more/new tights. I had all of 2 pairs left & I just got a run in the black pair so I'm now the owner of only a pair of bright blue tights ha.
