Five on Friday {November 28, 2014)

Happy Black Friday! Who is braving the stores today? I'm spending most of the day at home with my family, then going out for some much-needed highlights before heading over to M's for the night.

Let's jump into the five things I'm loving this week!

ONE | Thanksgiving

Obviously this had to top the list! I had a wonderful day with my family and hope you did too. I whipped up some quick place settings using decorative gourds and supplies I had left behind from my Neon BBQ...

...and then it was time for lots of good eating! I was too busy stuffing my face to take many food pictures, but I did capture one of my favorite appetizers, the pasta fagioli soup...

...and the dessert I look forward to all year. My Dad's creamy, perfectly smooth, and incredibly delicious pumpkin cheesecake!

TWO | Favorite clothing purchase

My favorite recent clothing purchase has got to be this Buy Me Brunch t-shirt - I mean, I founded a Brunch Club and we recently organized our little blogger brunch, so this literally could not be more perfect! You can buy yours here. I was so excited to wear it to our November Brunch Club outing, so imagine my surprise when I walked over to our table and was greeted by my friend Steve:

What can I say, we both have excellent taste!

THREE | Will you be my bridesmaid?

I couldn't have been more excited to see this sweet card from my friend Sarah in my mailbox - can't wait to start bouncing ideas around for the bridal shower and bachelorette party!

FOUR | Holiday card photo shoot

In addition to needing some holiday gal time, I'm heading over to M's tonight so we can prep for tomorrow morning's blog holiday card photo shoot! If you signed up for our holiday card swap, you'll be receiving this special card in the mail along with one from your swap partner. We have lots of fantastic sponsors providing wonderful items for this photo shoot, and we can't wait to share it with you!

FIVE | NYC Office View   

While I'm thankful to have an extra day off since our office is closed today, I'm also grateful to work in an industry that I love and it's a bonus that my office has a rooftop that looks out over the heart of NYC - not a bad view, right?

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and that you're enjoying this holiday weekend!
