Five on Friday

November has been great so far and it's only the second week!! Guess it's making up for October. No complaints from this girl! I'm hoping the next two weeks don't go too terribly fast, I want to enjoy my time home with family and of course Thanksgiving!! Sharing my five favorites this week + linking up with April | Christina | Natasha | Darci | + Karli

:: ONE ::
Tuesday I had the privilege of touring Hershey Medical Center. Words can't even describe the inspiration I felt that day. To see all of the hard work of so many that has paid off to provide for patients and families with the resources they need was simply amazing. To hear a Four Diamonds family tell their story. To see where research is being done. To listen to some of the staff and to directly see where the donations go was even more inspiring. To see the enthusiasm of the staff. Honestly, the list can go on, and on. It makes my dream of working in a Children's hospital feel like it could be a reality.  
:: TWO ::
I'm definitely a little late to the party on this one, but I made cucumber water this week and my roommate and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! If you've never had it, it's a must try! Makes the water so much sweeter, purely deeelish! Now I don't have an excuse not to get my water intake in for the day. 
thanks Pinterest for the mason jar idea
:: THREE ::
A girls weekend to NYC is planned and I am soooo excited! Christmastime + NYC = magical!! I can't tell you the last time I was in New York, let alone at Christmas. Super sad. Needless to say, I'm counting down the days! 
:: FOUR ::
While we're on the topic of Christmas(!!!) my all time favorite holiday linkup is back!!!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited?! Whoops. Sorry! But not really! I think my holiday bug gets worse and worse every year! Head over to Elise's blog (or any of the gals for more info!!) Hope you'll be linking up on Tuesday too! 

:: FIVE ::
This Sunday I'm participating in my first Friendsgiving! I've always wanted to have one but wasn't sure if my friends would be willing. And guess what?! I'm so glad I spoke up because they were totally for it! Our guest list is growing and I think we're up to at least 8 (or so) girls! YAY! Did I mention how much I love this time of year!?!

It's the little things in life, Friends! Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, fall-filled weekend!
