Friday finally!

5 on Friday link-up time!

Central Ave movie set
USA is filming a movie called The Novice, and they picked my little hood to be the set for a small version of LA's Koreatown. They started putting up neon signs with Korean symbols over the small strip up Central, and put up a yellow Karaoke sign and a "Gleeful Cloud" sign in front of Soul. I love how Charlotte is becoming the place to film! (Homeland, Banshee, Hunger Games, etc)

Blogger Ornament Swap
I had a ball with the Charlotte blogger ladies this year. We ate, drank, and chatted all night. It was such a great night!
I love my new ornament next to last year's!

Successful Christmas DIY's
I met with Khala & Sam this week for a little lunchtime tree cone crafting at work. I made the feathered one then, the red & white polka-dot with poms that night, and the green/pink trim last night. The striped one is the fabric I purchased in India for our wedding. Isn't it so chic? I am planning a post next week on all of our decorations!

Going away dinner at Customshop
 A friend of mine is transferring to the west coast for law school, and we're celebrating her time in Charlotte tonight at Customshop. I've never been for a regular dinner (we did a Groupon one time) so I'm really looking forward to it!

Holiday baking
My co-workers are coming over tomorrow to bake at my house for our holiday party next week. I look forward to baking something new each year, and this year we're going to make Marshmallows! I can't wait to share the results

Enjoy your weekend, and Happy Friday!!

Whoa, is that a GIF of your ornaments? If not, what is it and how did you make it? Looks awesome.

Emily, I just picked a photo from my Picasa album. Sometimes it will enhance photos. I had no idea until you pointed it out!
