Friday Five 11.7.14

Nov 7, 2014

Lot's of stuff this week. Let's wrap it up in the Friday Five.

//1//  Thirteen years after the Sept. 11 attacks, the first tenants (200 employees of the publishing company Conde Nast) moved their belongings into One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower). What a great day for New York, Lower Manhattan, and the USA!

My snap of the Freedom Tower from November '13.
 
//2// Guess who is becoming an aunt again today?! This girl! My brother and his wife will be welcoming their second daughter - Ella Jaye Angle - today via a planned C section. Can't wait until she's here!  
 
Emma is going to be a big sister and will no longer be an only child!
 
//3// This time next week I'll be in Miami and boarding a cruise ship headed to the Bahamas! Please and thank you.

 
 
 
//4// The local radio stations are already playing Christmas music non stop. I really can't stand it. Nick and I have this rule - or more of a law - that nothing Christmas related happens until Thanksgiving is over. It helps us to not get ahead of ourselves and enjoy one holiday at a time. What do you do in your household?

 
 
//5// Can I get an Amen?


Have a great weekend!

  2. LOVE that about the World Trade Center!

    ITA about keeping the holidays separate! I LOVE Christmas and I love Thanksgiving too! But I think what makes them more special and memorable is to give them both their own season! I love the anticipation of waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to put up the tree and decorate and listen to Christmas music!

  9. My family and I have the same rule about Thanksgiving! I hate that everything is so rushed now! All the radio stations and stores are stocking Christmas items before Halloween has even started! Makes it harder to appreciate each holiday. COngrats on becoming an aunt again!

  12. I put the Christmas tree up, because we always have Thanksgiving at our house, but not Christmas. I want everyone to see our tree, but still celebrate Thanksgiving. We add to our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving. Every plate has paper that matches our tree, and everyone has to write one thing they are thankful for and hang it on the tree. I love looking at it all holiday season. www.eatallovertheworld.weebly.com
