Happy Black Friday!!!

One of my favorite days of the year... Black Friday.  I have been doing Black Friday, to some degree, every year since I was a kid.  My dad was a big fan and always took me along... though when I was younger my favorite part of the day was our trip to McDonald's for breakfast before we hit the mall.  Well, times have certainly changed since then... now a days, by the time McDonald's opens for breakfast, I'm done shopping!

Well this year was certainly one of my favorite black friday's yet... Dawn and I have this down to a science- and we seriously rock when it comes to our black friday partnership.  Black Friday will never be successful if you go alone... and the more dedicated and focused your partner, the better.  Dawn and I work great together and we finished our night/morning feeling SO accomplished- but exhausted!

Our evening started around 9:30pm when we made the final decision to meet at Walmart... after a very successful shopping excursion, I headed to Old Navy & Toys R Us... and ended my night (well, morning) getting a few things online (some stores had their door busters online with FREE shipping).  I went to bed around 3:30am and was out the door again at 7am to hit up Walgreens, Michaels & Bed Bath & Beyond.

I got home around 8:45am and stayed on the couch until after naptime... thankfully all 3 of my boys were well behaved and let me get some sleep.  After everyone woke up, we pulled out our Christmas tree and put up the lights.  We're all pretty sleepy today, and Zac is feeling kind of feisty so that's about as far as we got... Deacon is dying to get up the ornaments, so I'm sure those will come soon!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving AND Black Friday :)
