It's Dicken's Day! (and Fresh Friday :)

It's the annual Dicken's Day here in my town and we're all full of Christmas spirit!

I did a 20 min FIRM workout this morning and for breakfast I pulled out this adorable holiday cheer towel. I thought it went nicely my green smoothie . . . :P

So this afternoon was really cool! Charles Dickens' great great-grandson performed a one-man show "A Christmas Carol" free to the public at a historic church downtown.

How in the world can I describe this experience?!!! Obviously, this guy (Gerald Dickens) is related to the Charles Dickens. Maybe it's some kind of artisty/creative gene that got passed down because it was simply spectacular!

It was a really fun experience and I ran into a ton of friends and we all got to sit together which made it even more fun! 

Smiling with two of my sweet friends. :-) 


Tiny Tim! They have people dressed up as the main characters with Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas which makes it all come alive. One year I'm going to dress up . . . 

A nice green salad alongside Thanksgiving leftovers for supper! Someone has to get up those leftover desserts . . . right?!

And - it's the most wonderful time of the year! Sorry, guys- I'm a sucker for the oldies. :) Maybe it has something to do with fun times of riding around with my Pappy and listening to his music. 

I hope your Christmas season is off to a fantastic start! The festivities have begun!!! I'm looking forward to the caroling parties, food, family and just plain fun that this month holds. 


So sorry, y'all! I completely forgot it was Fresh Friday until late today! Better late than never . . .  Link-up and tell me about your week. :) Here are my top 3:

#1 - time w/ family
#2 - hearing/seeing Charles Dickens' great great grandson in person
#3 - giving thanks on turkey day! 

What are your top 3 fresh thoughts for Friday?

How cool is that, you saw Charles Dickens' great great-grandson! I love stuff like that :D
And I love all the old-timey Christmas carols, they have so much more substance that the saccharin-sweet Mariah Carey or other celeb ones they pump out every Christmas now hehe
