Today I am thankful for...

Black Friday!

This year was a little (okay, a LOT) off for me. I LOVE shopping on BF with my mom, it's tradition with us, we LOVE it & always have so much fun together. (Tried it once with my sis, NEVER again, she doesn't know how to shop) LOL Anyway, since we had to stay home this year, I didn't have my shopping buddy. I tried getting a few friends to go with me, but they all had to work, or were out of town, if I was gonna go, I was on my own.

The fact that I had any $ whatsoever to spend today is a miracle in itself (I won't get into that though). Prince Charming & I talked & scoured the ads together & came up with a game plan for me. After getting 3 1/2 sleep, I got back up & headed out the door. Best Buy was my first stop, I got there at 5 to 5, the line was wrapped all the way around the building. The entire time, I was trying to decide if it was even worth it. There were a few guys out handing out hot cocoa, I decided what the heck, if nothing else, it'll keep my hands warm while holding it. I think I took 2 little sips & the line started moving. I LOVE the way they handled everything in there, I was in & out of there & back to my car by 7 minutes after 5 & I got what I wanted!!!

Next stop, Shopko... NEVER AGAIN! That place is disgusting & an absolute nightmare. I did get what I wanted & got the heck out of there. Next on the list was Walmart. I have to say, I was disappointed with WM this year. I have NEVER seen them run out of things like they did this time. I did get most of what I wanted there, do it was fine, just a little disappointing. I made 3 more stops before I headed to Target. I ended up getting what I needed there & headed home. I was home & back in bed by 9:30. Only the boys were up. I tried to go back to bed, but Prince Charming woke up, so we started chatting, then my phone rang every 5 minutes, I finally gave up on sleep.

The rest of the day was spent hanging out around here with the family. It was the PERFECT day! I am so thankful for the BF ads & that my kids will be able to have some kind of Christmas this year.

Just because I don't like to "browse" on BF, doesn't mean that I don't know how to shop! I'll have you know that I was at home and by 6:50 AM!!! And I got everything I needed as well!!!
