Happy Black Friday!!!!

OMG!!! Why didn't anyone tell me how much fun Black Friday is?!?! Since we weren't going anywhere this holiday, I thought I'd check out this shopping phenomenon. I was up at 3:15 this morning. Those who know me know I'm not a morning person (exept on vacation, especially if it's Disney - then I go by the late to bed, early to rise rule). I was at Kohl's by 3:45; there were probably 100 people in front of me waiting for the store to open at 4. I talked to a woman behind me for a few minutes. I didn't get a carriage but I was able to snag a bag so I did okay with carrying everything. I was done by 4:20 and on my way to Toys R Us. That was a bit more crazy. I was there at 4:30 and the store opened at 5 so I talked to the 2 women behind me for a while. One went to get carriages and grabbed me one which was very nice. I got what I wanted and then waited in line. And waited. And waited. The line went around 3 sides of the store. Some people tried to cut in line but I wasn't about to go for that. I kept my carriage right behind the woman in front of me. I brought a book with me so I read that to pass the time. I was out at 6 and on my way to the mall. I hit Target, Gymboree, Borders, Children's Place and Hallmark. Unos was serving a breakfast buffet - all you can eat for $8.00 so I had home fries, english muffin, bacon, and sausage. My last stop was Michaels where I bought myself a present from the kids. I knew that Mike wouldn't have gone shopping yet and there was no way I was passing up an Ott light for $15.00. These are usually $60. I am finished shopping for everyone except 2 grab gifts!!!!

Black Friday is fun, isn't it??? It's just a good thing that it's only once a year or we'd all go broke!
