Black Friday.

First off, I hope you all had a fantastical Thanksgiving, celebrating and enjoying those you love. And I hope your pants still fit.

Today is Black Friday, and by the time this posts, most of you are probably already in lines elbowing and kicking people. Okay, you're probably not getting physical, but chances are you probably wish you were.

I know I get extremely irritable in crowds.

But does that stop me?

Of course not! I love love love Black Friday. It is so fun getting out into the hustle and bustle of the start of the Christmas season. Mom and I always say we are going to get up at 3:30am and leave at 4:30, but in all actuality, we end up leaving around 9. Silly us.

I'm never really on a mission for one particular thing on Black Friday, except for the time I sent Husby to Wal-Mart at 5am to get a big screen TV for us - only to have him wait for 2 hours and them sell out right before it was his turn. Anyway, I always wish I was on the hunt for the newest "must have". I'm sure it's totally satisfying to find one, grab it and run for the nearest check out aisle. (While mowing down innocent bystanders in the meantime...)

(A girl has to release her frustrations somehow, right?)

On Black Friday, I'm usually out trying to find some steals on things I already have in mind for my gift receivers. This year, I am almost completely finished shopping already. I'm totally on the ball this year. But you better believe I'm out there with my elbows sharpened and my eyes acutely aware.

What are you on the prowl for this Black Friday? And did you find it?
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. Oh I was on the prowl, starting at 12am and finished around 9a. I'm exhausted. We went the Premium outlets first. i picked up some Uggs for my lil sister. Then hit the mall for sweaters at Old Navy, a friend picked up PS3, and we did some misc. shopping. This was my 1st Black Friday experience and I'm exhausted. Still have a full day of work ahead of me.

  2. I skipped out on Black Friday this year. But I did see people at Wal-Mart last night at 10pm camping out in the electronics section.

  3. Mostly clothes and electronics!! You can normally get great deals on those things.

  4. I actually have never been to a black Friday. I really wanted to go this year, but hubs and mom refused to go with me. Neither of them like crowds! However, I'm usually pretty good about getting my Christmas shopping completed before Thanksgiving! I only have 1 more thing to get this year! I learn from my mom, she's the best :) Glad to hear you had fun and you're almost done with your shopping!!

  5. I have worked many black friday's, there is no way i'd shop them! Instead we're going to the zoo :]

  6. I loooove Black Friday. This year I got a laptop. I was overthemoon excited!!!

  7. Ohhhh I stayed out for hours one black friday to get a laptop at Staples and they gave out tickets and they only had 7. I was the 8th person in line. I feel ya. Walmart was nuts everywhere!!! There will be more sales, trust me!

  8. Whitney! I just read your post and was checking out other blogs when I stumpled upon this....


  9. First of all, i just read melissa's comment, and she's totally right. You need to go let out your frustrations on that other chick's blog - seriously!

    As shocking as it may seem, I have actually never gone black Friday shopping! maybe one day I will if there is something I really really want. (-:


  10. My Mom and I used to do Black Friday every year -- but since I started doing Thanksgiving with Hubby's family I have nto done it until this year. This year we did Black Friday to get hubby a snowboard, but that was it. Hope you had a great time!

  11. Each year, my fave thing to get is $.99 poinsettias from Lowe's and the free snow globes at JC Penny's!

  12. I havent actually been shopping on black Friday yet. Its sounds stressful in my opinion!! But some people have made it into a fun family type shopping trip, and I respect that!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!! LEVIS FIRST Christmas! How magical!

  13. I skipped Black Friday this year, because I am pregnant, and I just didn't want to get out there in the crowds, but I hope to be out there next year! :)

  14. We ventured out and got everything we wanted. Derick even went but he was uber groucho! He is not into crowds either:) Good seeing you yesterday!
