I generally don't buy into the whole Black Friday thing. I value my sleep too much to fight the crowds at 5 AM! Last night Adam and I were looking through our ads and I was noticing there were a lot of super great deals at Target. Adam asked if I was going to get up early to shop. I said, "No way!" And then I amended my response to, "The only way I would go would be if McKay wakes up at 4:45 and I have to get up with him anyway, and even then I would probably still go back to bed!" Well, at precisely 4:45 AM, I heard McKay crying. It must have been fate! I got up and fed him, and then decided since I was up, I should go. I threw on a jacket and a hat and left the house, without even turning on a light to look at myself before leaving. Yikes.
Target was crazy. I was sure as soon as I pulled into the parking lot that there was no chance I would get what I was after. Without going into too many details (some of the things I bought are for family members who may well read this blog before Christmas!) I found EXACTLY what I was after, and I was in and out of Target in 20 minutes. It was unbelievable. So worth it. And I only had to hide from one person I recognized so she wouldn't see me in the state I was in!
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving! Here are three of the things I am the very most thankful for:
(I know, this is a terrible picture, but unfortunately, it was the only one I took yesterday. And, no, we did not plan to have them all in red and white stripes. It was purely coincidental.)
