Anyway, this post isn't about ranting about how great over half of the weekdays are. It's a holiday-themed Five Facts Friday!
Why? Because holidays are AWESOME and it's finally that time of year again!
Fact #1: Starbucks is not losing the holiday-themed beverage market anytime soon.
Have you heard of the new Caramel Brulee flavor? It comes as both a latte and a frappucino (but why would you ever choose a latte when you could have a frappe? Even in winter?) and is already climbing to cult status. Maybe it's the next pumpkin hit?
They also have Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, and the usual creamy hot chocolates, so they're not going anywhere fast.
Fact #2: Dunkin' Donuts still can't hold a
Okay, so I'm a little biased. What can I say? I'm a southern girl and Krispy Kreme is just better than the Yankee alternative. But seriously!
The new Snowman Doughnuts are adorable, y'all.
Also, slightly related request - can we please, please, pretty please have a white Christmas this year? Living in NC, I haven't had one in ages. But even in the north, snow always seems to come after (occasionally before, but sadly generally after) Christmas. I love snow in December, but snow in January and February is often just cold and wet. Bah-humbug!
Fact #3: There is entirely not enough Home Alone in the ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas Line-Up
So I've already checked out the schedule.
What can I say? I'm a tad Christmas obsessed.
Or maybe more than a tad.
I love the new Christmas movies as much as the next girl, but the Home Alone movies (yes, all of them) are such a part of a traditional Christmas for me! Why is there barely any Home Alone on the schedule? WHY?
Fact #4: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is still going strong with the 87th annual parade this year!
It's a lovely tradition and the lineup looks pretty great this year, as usual.

Fact #5: Time is flying this semester!
I've said it before and I'm saying it again - this fall is passing in a flash! I'm not sure why it's going by so fast, but I can't say that I mind. It's been really fun (if fast!) so far!
What is(are) your favorite day(s) of the week?
Have you started your Thanksgiving prep yet?
Is anyone else already elbow-deep in Christmas movies and music? #sorryimnotsorry since October
