It was more like a “white” Friday than “Black Friday” today!
I have to admit it was very pretty outside–especially with the sun shining!
Here’s how my day went:
6:00 a.m. Get up, go to the bathroom, but decide it is too early to get up–even though I am not that tired– so I crawled back into my nice warm bed and snuggled with my husband.
7:00 a.m. Wake up again and decide to actually get up–plus my stomach was grumbling.
Eat breakfast: a bowl of Quaker Oatmeal Squares with soymilk + 1/2 apple
My sister calls and tells me that Gap is having 50% off everything in the store before 10 a.m., so I decide to give Black Friday shopping a chance.
(I’ve never gone before!! Actually, I take that back, one year my dad and I looked at cars, while the rest of my family fought the crowds of people. They said they would never do that again! Funny thing is, no one in my family has gone out on Black Friday since (that was 7 years ago) and somehow all three of us kids (separately) decided to give it a chance this year!)
7:30 a.m. Decide to go shopping and hit a couple of stores before 10 a.m.
Drive to Target and score some decent deals.
My parents called while I was shopping to tell me they were in Miami headed to Belize–those lucky ducks!!
8:45 a.m. Leave Target and see that the sun finally decided to get up.
Next I headed to the mall and went directly to Gap to take advantage of the wicked awesome deals!
10:00 a.m. Get back home, unpack, and straighten up the house.
10:30 a.m. Head out for a nice 5-mile run in the winter wonderland.
11:15 a.m. Return home and decide I should probably brush the snow off my car.
I don’t know for sure how much snow we got but that looks like about 8-9 inches to me.
11:45 a.m. Ate lunch: lots of leftovers.
I spent the next couple hours:
- making my Christmas wish list
- doing some laundry
- starting my Christmas letter
- looking for Christmas photo cards to send
2:30 p.m. Shower and get ready.
3:30 p.m. I headed out again to do some more shopping/errands. (Yes again, but today’s pretty much the only day I have to get things done; we have plans the next couple of days.)
I grabbed an iced Americano at Starbucks.
I then hit up Sports Authority, REI, and tried to sell some clothes at a consignment store, but they were closed.
