I went shopping on Black Friday again.
This time though, I didn’t go to Walmart and I wasn’t there when Target opened up. Instead, we started at Victoria’s Secret. Let’s be serious, is there ever a time where you couldn’t use more bras and panties? No. The door prize for a purchase of $65 or more was a bag with goodies in it (which I will be regifting the goodies). There were 16 year olds screaming about yoga pants. They went in there running and screaming, it was insane. We also checked out a few other stores (Journey’s, Eddie Bauer, Vanity, American Eagle, you name it). We tried to go to Old Navy, but let me tell you something… their line was INSANE. I don’t even know what people were buying, it was just nuts.
But I did manage to score some really sweet deals at Eddie Bauer and won the battle over the extraordinarily cheap sonicare toothbrush (with a coupon… and a mail-in-rebate)… twice, actually. I will be returning one of them as it was just a back-up plan.
All in all, I’m pretty much done shopping for Superman, and I definitely scored a deal at Children’s Place for a present for my niece. So far, so good. Now, I just need to finish my wreaths for the family and find something for my dad.
Oh and I also learned how to shoot a 45mm , 20 cal, 9mm, and 223 cal(?) rifles and handguns. I even have the rookie shotgun bruise to prove it (which looks like I’m a beaten wife, btw). I’ve never shot anything before so that was pretty rockin’.

This picture doesn’t do it justice, it’s a deep purple with an almost rosy colored mark in the middle.
Did I mention that it’s sore as Hades?
We are probably going to start decorating next week for Christmas too. It’ll definitely look better than this:

It was totally the best Thanksgiving ever. How was YOURS?? Tell me about it!
