Black Friday and Heaven...two peas in the same pod!!!



I LOVE LOVE Black Friday!!! The day after Thanksgiving is filled with Euphoria! When I get a MAJOR deal I feel like a warrior...a conqueror...a Samurai Warrior!!!

Seriously, there is no feeling like it!

People don't like the crowds


I LOVE them. It's the only time where you can push and shove...elbow here...bleeding nose there...

Where people over look it because they want to do the same thing! :) It's great!

Not that I do that...I just see it...and fill out all the witness reports for police!

Either way.

I didn't go to bed Thanksgiving night...I stayed up and headed to the outlets at Midnight. Was there for FOUR hours and then headed back into the city to hit all the major stores and their deals!

Yes I came home and crashed...but it was the same feeling of exhaustion and pleasure filled tingles that comes along with ...well...you know...Bedroom Fun!!!

Then I woke up and went to BOLT with the kids!!!

Hope you all had a good Friday also...if you do Black Fridays, then what deal did you get that YOU want to Gloat about?

Love,

Shelle

OMgosh! OMGosh! OMGOSH! This seals the deal. We are totally twins. I wrote a post about Black Friday and I think every single comment said they slept through the whole thing!

High Five, girl. It's just one more thing we both love but you're better at!

I've never done Black Friday. I don't think I have the guts. The best we've done is catch a few online deals from the safety of our computers! Way to go.

I don't DO crowds very well. Both of our cars broke yesterday and I have been dealing with my ex in bad way, so I am thinking black friday is like Friday the 13th for me.

Shannon said...

I hate crowds too! Right now paying the extra money is worth my sleep and stress level. In a couple years I may be ready to go. Check out my blog and you'll see how I spent my week. You wouldn't have shopped either. By the way we saw Bolt too. The hampster cracked me up!

you crazy!

georgie said...

you is beyond crazy!!! LOL crowds scare me! BUT glad you got some good deals!

John Deere Mom said...

No thank you. I go out later than you crazies...all of the good deals are gone...the aisles are so crowded you can't get through...I yell at the kids to stay close...then we leave in a frustrated state of sweat and anger with nothing. Good times.

Lynn said...

Wow, you are one impressive shopper! I hope you got some great bargains.

Pat said...

You go girl. That is awesome. Any experience that leaves you feeling like a Samaruai warrior, totally worth it. I went last year for the first time. But I didn't see anything this year that could tempt me from my nice warm bed.
Glad you had a good day.

I was there too...but unfortunately I was on the other side of the counter!

Ok, so I'm not into losing my sleep to get up and shop - I DO love shopping, it's just with four kids, priorities set in. I DO however have to say that I absolutely adore you even more after reading Thursday's "Don't you hate it when" venting session! I have no idea what the situation was, however I say you ROCK for setting others straight like that so openly. Are you KIDDING ME people have nothing else to do but bitch about cheaters on blogging polls?? Damn, if I only had the time to worry about shit like that. Anyway, you earned my respect. Cheers.

I bought my Black Friday goodies online at 11:30 Thanksgiving night. I got an elliptical, pad for it to sit on, a fitness card to plug into it, taxes, and delivery for the cost it would have been before the sale. :)

Annie said...

I did some online shopping and braved one store. I did THINK about the outlet mall at midnight, but not enough stores were open for me to take the plunge!

Mother Goose said...

I too like the hustle and the bustle, but I couldn't even think straight in most of the stores. There were so many people. This has been my first black friday in 25 years that I have not liked. I have been shopping that long. My mom took us with her since I was 15

Shannon said...

For the 1st time ever, I went out shopping on Black Friday...

And I don't think I'll ever do it again!

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

I couldn't hack it. What is so good about it. What kind of deals did you get??? One day maybe I'll try it.

Amanda said...

No deal is worth it. None. Period.

Did you hear about the Walmart employee who got killed? Trampled to death. Sick.

I love your comparison to sex though. That almost makes me want to join you next time. Shopping, not in the bedroom, sicko!

Tonya Lea said...

I have yet to do the black friday thing....that crowd was insane. I checked out your photography blog and your pretty darn good!! Wish I would have know when we got our family pics in St. George a couple of years ago. They didn't turn out so good. Next time I'm calling you :)

Alyson (New England Living) said...

No, I'm a lazy mazy at heart and refuse to get up that early to shop. So nothing to gloat about here.

I'm husband went though and he got an awesome deal on a new computer monitor.

MERRIANNE said...

brooken'dus said...

I saw bolt with K, super funny!!

binks said...

Oh No You Di'int. You are crazy, lady. Who did you drag along and what deals did you get?
Knowing I had a long drive ahead of me, I just couldn't do it.
ps - I need your address, please.

Annie Valentine said...

I'm going to have to go with you next year so you can cue me in on all these supposed deals.
