Black Friday and a little more Thanksgiving

Yes, I ventured out to the stores yesterday.  Got up at 4 am and was at the first store by 5:30.  And really it wasn’t bad.  It was much busier than normal, but just like a normal day at mall in the Twin Cities.  I was in and out of Target in less than 1/2 an hour.  8 stores later, it was 11:30 and I was on my way home.  I was at the mall for a little bit.   


Came home and promptly slept for 3 1/2 hours!  Then I neatly set out everything as above.  With post-its of original price and sale price, for effect. :)  We’re now in the process of deciding what actually needs to stay.  I got a little sale-happy!  I mean, a $140 queen-sized down comforter for only $19.99???  It can’t be passed up!


With the constant changing of Adam’s work schedule for Thanksgiving, I never planned a meal.  We had planned to go see a movie and eat a bunch of popcorn. 

He ended up having the entire day off and I started to feel bad about not having a big turkey dinner ready.  We ended up going to Village Inn for a turkey feast before the movie.  It was actually pretty good.

But I still felt bad.  So yesterday I pulled out a turkey and stuffing casserole from the freezer, mixed up a green bean casserole and whipped up a pumpkin pie, with homemade whipped cream.  Oh, and I made biscuits.


It was nice, low key “Thanksgiving.”

Everything needs to stay! We ventured out a bit later on Black Friday but still got an awesome deal on a treadmill and toys for the kiddos.
