Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Only one day left of work for me on Monday then it's Christmas break! (Actually the office I work in is closed until the 2nd, but I still come in once in awhile to check on the phones and the mail. But it's a much shorter day than normal!) I'm linking up with the Five on Friday posts for the first time so I'll jump right in and get started!

1. Getting our Christmas cards done before Christmas! (Actually they'll be mailed out today, so hopefully most people will get them before!)

2. We are going to the Holidazzle parade tonight! If you are in Minnesota, I think it runs on the weekends throughout December and goes down Nicollet Ave in downtown Minneapolis. This is the last year of the parade!! So if you've never been before, go! It's a fun tradition for us Minnesotans :)

3. This starts off as a sucky story, but turns out good. I'm sure you've all heard of the security breach at Target in which debit and credit card information was stolen over a period of a couple weeks just after Thanksgiving. Well, I'm pretty sure our credit card was one of the ones that was stolen. I saw on our accounts yesterday that our card was locked and we found out that there were 2 attempted transactions that were actually declined right away. But they were swiped transactions! So whoever stole our number actually made a fraudulent card... But I'm happy that our bank was keeping an eye on things so that none of the fraudulent transactions went through and everything was sorted out! What a pain. I'd never had my card information stolen before, but this is the second time this has happened since I've been married! haha

4. I found out today that I was featured on two different blog's link party's for the week! Show Off Friday and Fun Friday Blog Hop! It was a really awesome surprise, especially since I'm still figuring out my place in this blog world :)

5. The 'warm-up' we had! And by warm, I mean it was in the 30's as opposed to the single digits or teens. But we will take whatever we can get! (especially in the winter)
