Fabulous Friday – 25 May 2018

Fabulous Friday Button

We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.

********************

  • HOLIDAY WEEKEND – There is something about American companies these days that make them stingy on giving days off to their employees. My company only offers nine days for the year, and six of them occur in November and December. So when I actually get a long holiday weekend, it is time to rejoice. I am sure we have activities planned, but I have no idea what they are. Connor’s birthday is on Monday, so I know we will celebrate that. Otherwise, I plan to do as little as possible and enjoy every day of the long weekend.
