Five for Friday {Nov 29}


I cannot believe it's Friday!!  
Although we have done a ton of stuff in just a few days- including E.A.T!

All that walking I have done has only prepared me for the grub fest I had yesterday and today!

We did walk a little of it off when we went to the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum. Very interesting. 
While we were there we learned the Cherokee word for squirrel. 

We also saw some beautiful woodland stained glass- 

(See the squirrel?)

Afterwards we stopped by to stock up on some more Benton's bacon- if you have never had it- you are missing out!! 
You can smell it for miles! I can also smell it in the Littles!! Littlest Little just happened to be wearing his Benton's bacon shirt- yes- he wore the band shirt to the concert! 
Chickadee got one for herself - it seriously takes like a year of washing it to get the bacon smell out. But we are 10lbs of bacon richer - so who cares if your children smell like a smokehouse, right???

Afterwards, we ditched the boys and headed to the antique stores in the downtown district.

Take a look at these finds- I WAS DESTINED TO SHOP TODAY!!!


Is he not adorable???? That was one shop.


Here's another!!! Are you kidding me??? Amazing!! 
I told the Mr I will eventually need a special cabinet for all my squirrel salt and pepper shakers.

And my one last fabulous find: 

In L.O.V.E.!!! As soon as I saw it, I thought of my FAVORITE sweet-cheeked girl!! Her Auntie Squirrels will be sending it to her soon!! ❤️❤️❤️

After reading the tag/business card from the woman who made it, I found her Etsy shop. It's called Birdie Mae Boutique. (I will link once I get home to my computer) . It's a good thing I don't have a little pint- sized squirrel girl of my own anymore-I would be broke!!

So it was a day filled with my favorite things- 
Squirrels and bacon.
Oh, yeah and 
Family and food!! 


Hope your Black Friday was a bright one!!
