Another High Five for Friday!
1 – Thanksgiving. It was so great to step away from real life for a few days, to soak up the sun and spend time with the family with nothing on the agenda. So much to be thankful for this year!
2 – Cyber Monday. I’m *reallyreallyreally* trying to limit my spending since we’re closing on the loan at the end of the month (worst month, ha!), but I couldn’t help snagging a few good deals on items I already needed – including our holiday cards! I decided to order cards for New Year so I don’t feel the pressure to mail them during the chaos of moving before Christmas, and I can send out our new address at the same time (two birds, one stone!).
3 – Winter Songs. Perfect music for the work day and getting in the holiday spirit!
4 – Fixer Upper. Season 3 is here! Hands down my favorite HGTV show.
5 – Sketch a Day Challenge. It’s probably crazy to add another daily challenge to the holidays, but I couldn’t resist. I’d like to doodle more often so this is a good prompt and fun way to get back into the habit (Can you tell I’m also reading Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin and embracing my Obliger status?!)
