Fabulous Friday Five . . .

TGIF! Wild to think that one week from today Thanksgiving will be over and we will be in the chaos known as Black Friday. Do you go Black Friday shopping? I missed last year due to my leg surgery so my Mom and I will probably go out once we make our lists and check the ads.
