Fascinating Friday Links #14

Hello, hello!

How are you all doing? I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Hanukkah if you celebrated! Our clan definitely had an awesome time filled with fantastic food and great company. A more in-depth Thanksgiving recap will come tomorrow. Also, a couple delicious recipes for using up those leftover Thanksgiving fixings are comin’ at ya!

In regards to Black Friday, I’m not into it. The news said there was some sort of bomb threat in Walmart. I’ll pass on that chaos. However, I’m all for the online deals! My mom kindly bought me some clothing items from Forever 21’s website (which is counting as my Christmas gift!) since there was an awesome sale going on. Thank God for technology.

For this evening, I wanted to give you all the usual Fascinating Friday Links! Better late than never, right? I was thinking of skipping it entirely, but the links I have here are just too good not to share. Enjoy!
