5 Things: The balloons edition


Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week or at least managed to carve out some quality time with a good book and a cup of tea. If not, I highly recommend doing so tonight. It's getting a little chillier in most spots this week and you know you need to unwind with a good story! But, first, I hope you'll check out this week's "5 Things." It's hard to be stressed when watching balloons:

1) It has been an exceptionally fine week for Balloon Fiesta! This time lapse video gives you a pretty good idea of what it looks like. And this awesome scene over the Rio Grande is spectacular. Although if you get the chance, I highly recommend coming to ABQ one year to see if for yourself. There's nothing like standing beside one of these colorful giants!

2) Want to see a synopsis of Julia Roberts' movies in about nine minutes? Well, you're in luck! Hard not to smile (or quote America's Sweethearts) while watching this one.

3) Good Housekeeping has compiled a fun list of "25 Facts That Will Make You Smile." Definitely interesting facts and potential conversation starters over a dinner sometime soon.

4) If you're a Tolkien fan you would probably appreciate the letter he wrote to the University of Edinburgh shortly before his death. What a treat to see his handwriting as well!

5) Last but not least you'll want an up close look at the world's largest balloon. Even larger than "Airabelle" who is pretty massive. Wow!

Okay, that's all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
