Five on Friday - November 26, 2021

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!  My belly is still full from all the wonderful food we had yesterday.  I'm so thankful that Eric and I are both off work today.  We are going to be getting the Christmas decoration out.  Before I start that, I want to share my five for this week ~

1.  Encanto
Are you looking for something to do with the whole family?  Disney's new movie, Encanto, opened Wednesday and it looks like a beautiful movie.  Here's the plot from Movie Insider:
Tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

2.  Fear No Evil
James Patterson fans - you have a new book to read!  Fear No Evil hit the stands this week and it's book 29 of the Alex Cross series.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~

Alex Cross enters the final battle with the all-knowing genius who has stalked him and his family for years.

Dr. Alex Cross and Detective John Sampson venture into the rugged Montana wilderness—where they will be the prey.
They’re not on the job, but on a personal mission. 
Until they’re attacked by two rival teams of assassins, controlled by the same mastermind who has stalked Alex and his family for years. 
Darkness falls. The river churns into rapids. Shots ring out through the forest. 
No backup. No way out. Fear no evil. 

3.  Small Business Saturday
Save some of the shopping until Saturday and pop in a small business in your area.  Saturday is officially Small Business Saturday!  Many small businesses have had a rough time managing through the pandemic.  This is our opportunity to show them some love and shop at their establishments on Saturday.  Many times, it's these small businesses we call upon when we need money or items donated for school or charitable auctions and events.  Now it's our turn to give a little something back to them!

4.  Krispy Kreme Holiday Donuts
Krispy Kreme has it going on with their holiday donut collection this year!  They're calling it their "Let It Snow Collection" and it starts today!  The three new donuts are the Poppy Penguin, Snowy Sprinkle, and the Snowman Smile Donuts.  They are adorable and I can't wait to serve them for breakfast when my niece and nephews visit in a few weeks.

5.  I am old...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  If you're out shopping today - good luck!  We will be staying close to home until Sunday when we go to visit my side of the family.  I'm excited to start the holiday season and am hoping to get a jump on some things over the next couple of days.  Pop in on Monday to hear all about it!
