Five on Friday - November 20, 2015

Hello Friday!  You came way too fast this week.  I took yesterday and today off work in hopes of getting some of my Thanksgiving preparations done.  Let's just say I still have a lot to do.  I got caught up in cleaning out the pantry yesterday and the day was gone before I knew it.  Of course, now I have a bigger mess than when I started!  Hopefully today I'll just power through and be done before I know it.

We did take a break last night to have dinner with the neighbors from our old neighborhood.  We hadn't seen them in several years - way too many years - and it was wonderful catching up with them.  Definitely will not be waiting that long again to get together.  Thanks Kathy and Ron for a fun time!

Now, with no further ado, here's my five for this week ~

1.  Kaboost Chair Raiser
Check out this chair raiser!  This would be the perfect thing to have around during the holidays when kids arrive.  It would easily store away when you don't need it and be a life saver when you did.  This baby will fit round or square 4 legged chairs.  It holds up to 300 pounds (for the big kids) and the rubberized feet are non slip and won't scratch floors.  Need one for Thanksgiving?  Click HERE to get yourself one.

2.  Deeper
Do you have a fisherman in your life?  Looking for a great gift for them?  Well, I have the product for you!  The Deeper Wireless Fishfinder is a small, self-contained wireless transducer that streams sonar images to the operators of an iOS or Android smart device via a Bluetooth connection. The highly portable design and superior feature-set make the Deeper a must have for anglers in every fishing condition.
Deeper Smart Portable Fish Finder (Depth Finder) for Smartphone or Tablet, suitable for Ice Fishing, Kayak, Boat and Shore Fishing. Compatible with iPhones and Android devices. The World's most versatile wireless sonar.

3.  Adele
Let's hear it for Adele's much awaited album, 25, that is being released today.  Yay!!  If you're an Adele lover like I am, here's a couple other Adele happenings you won't want to miss.  Adele is the musical guest on SNL this week.  Matthew McConaughey will be the host so you'll have something nice to look at before she makes her appearance.  And this one you might want to set your DVR so you don't miss it -- NBC will be broadcasting a one-hour Adele Live In New York City on Monday, December 14.   The special was taped at her one night only performance at New York's Radio City Music Hall on November 17.  So happy she's back!

4.  Fleece Lined Tights
We had a little cold snap here so it was time to bust out the fleece tights this week.  These are on sale right now at Urban Outfitter ~ 2 pairs for $20.  My legs stay toasty warm when I'm wearing them.  The office where I work is so cold I might just have a pair on until spring.  Good thing they are so comfortable!  They would also make a great items to pop in someones stocking.

5.  This is a little bit me....

Okay, back to my chores.  If all goes as planned, we're going to try to see the new Hunger Games movie this weekend.  Are you planning on seeing it?  I'm also meeting up with a friend and her family for lunch tomorrow.  Hope your weekend is fantastic!  Stop back by on Monday to see my Thanksgiving mantle and hear all about the weekend.

  12. That fish finder is really cool, not that we fish often, and it's usually in a pond, but it is really cool. LOL I have a pair of the fleece lined tights, love them!!! I hope that your Thanksgiving goes well!!
