We've been talking about it for weeks now and it has finally arrived, Thanksgiving week and the beginning of the Christmas holiday season.
For me, this begins the big sprint to January 1. There's always so much to do (shopping, cleaning, decorating, baking, and wrapping) in a short few weeks. Therefore, I need to eat copious amounts of calories Thursday to fuel me for the big push. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
What are your plans for this long holiday weekend? Will you be going over the river and through the woods to Grandma's house? Will you be entertaining family and friends in your home? We will be going down to the corner and turning left to Brother/Sister-in-law's house.
Will you be fighting the crowds on Black Friday morning? If so, how early do you set out and do you fly solo or are you part of a well-seasoned shopping team? Have any crazy stories to share?
As for me, I fly solo on Black Friday morning, but I only go out if I see a big bargain on something on my list. This excursion is not for the light-hearted shopper or the browser.
Black Friday is not safe for browsers!
From what I've seen on BlackFriday.Com, I'm not sure whether I will go out or not.
Friday or Saturday, we will go to the tree farm and cut down our holiday tree. I love this tradition and can't wait to see what beauties are available this year. Last year, the farm had a HUGE, bushy tree with a crooked trunk. It's name was Charlie and he was only $25. Jordan wanted him, but I talked him our of it....because he is huge and has a crooked trunk. This past Friday, Jordan informed me that I told him if Charlie was still there this year, we'd bring him home. What was I thinking????
What are your plans?
