BRAVING BLACK FRIDAY

Since deciding to stay home with the kids, I'm able to take part in one of my favorite days of the year (besides Christmas)....BLACK FRIDAY!

Although the crowd was not like this



It was a fun morning. And because I arrived 10 minutes after Target opened, I was stuck with the BIG cart that you usually plead with your kids to NOT want to ride in.


I didn't get any pictures while in the store because you know, when you're in the store you're in the moment! I was able to grab a few shots of the cart prior to packing the items into my car





And who braved the early morning rush with me? My mom of course. Who by the way, was uncomfortable with me taking this picture since she was wearing her Black Friday attire



And I had to mention this:

My sister-in-law told me that she had no reason to get up this morning to shop. She said that she really didn't need any of the items out there. That's fine, but why when I woke up this morning and checked my e-mail I had a shopping list from her?
*First Act Electronic Drum Set $35
*New Bright Radio Control Hummer $12.50
*R/C Micro Terrain Titans $10
*Play-Doh $7.00
*Oster $15
WHO DOES THAT?!?!?

Obviously, you're speaking of another, less attractive sisters in law. WELL! I can also see that some aren't as trustworthy as I thought! Black Friday is a sucker day, and I didn't want to be a scrooge, so I must confess that I sent that email to support you in your spending endeavors (habit).

She's like, "Um, why should I get up if YOU'RE already planning too? Just pick this things up when you're out . . . . ." Too funny. Hope you guys had fun.

LOL What a great sister-in-law you are. Looks like you had a very full cart!! Hope you were able to get some great deals. I am not a Black Friday shopper, I can't handle the crowds.

I am way behind this year, I am normally finished by now. The last two years have found me being a slow-poke. I am guessing it is because my two are getting harder and harder to buy for. They change their minds often and often when asked can't say what they want. Silly boys.

Enjoy your weekend.

Dayka you have expressed my thoughts exactly. Thank you! Your such a postive influence in Lakeitha life! I'm 34, she's 26. I need my beauty rest! Good night all.

Now this is hysterical, indeed, who does that!?! Sisters? I don't have one so I'll take it from you!

My kids of all people were the ones in this household that wanted to head out to Michael's and JoAnn Fabric today! Who was I to argue with them?
