Friday Night Fab Five: Bob's My Uncle

Hi everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I adore this week. You know what I've decided? I need to move to England. They have awesome vintage shops and soirees, they call french fries "chips" AND if I ever did move there I could use the line from National Lampoon's European Vacation, "Look kids, Big Ben!"

And since I am also in love with the watch instantly feature on Netflix (which ironically is not available in the UK which might postpone my move across the pond), this week's Fab Five is about 5 (actually 4 with one honorable mention) Instant favorites of mine even the Queen couldn't help but watch.

Think there's a resemblance perchance?

Fun sidenote: we're both wearing the same dress. My mom found this dress I wore as a baby and luckily it fit Zippy perfectly. So yes, Toot may be all Chris but Zippy is all yours truly. :)

I hope you're having a great week! Join me tomorrow for the return of my Friday Night Fab Five! :D
