We did some damage ...

Around 3:00 a.m. this morning, my alarm went off. Who in their right mind wakes up at 3:00 a.m. on purpose? Ha ... apparently I wasn't in my right mind ... neither was my mother! I picked her up at 3:45 a.m. so we could start our Black Friday shopping at 4:00 a.m.

We started out at Kohl's ... and the line was super long, but it actually moved quickly once the doors were open. I just had to laugh at all the people ... within about a half hour, the cash register line wrapped literally half way around Kohs's ... it was ridiculous! After an hour at Kohl's, we moved on to Modells, Toys R Us, Macys, Target, JCPenney, Bath and Body Works, American Eagle, Kmart and last but not least, Home Depot.

We were home by 11:00 a.m.

I don't know how much money we spent, nor do I think I could make a list of everything we bought ... let's just say my Yukon was filled to the brim ... literally. We had to drive home with bags on our laps since we could not possibly stuff anything else into the rest of my SUV.

So yeah ... I pretty much think I am done with the bulk of my Christmas shopping. I need to do this Black Friday stuff more often! 50% toys, free stuff ... I love it!


  1. Wow, we are impressed. No shopping here today.

  2. I couldn't bring myself to get up early to go shopping. I blame it all on the pregnancy:) I'll pay for it later when I'm running around at the last minute!

  3. I do believe you are CRAZY!!! At least you got some good deals.

  4. I would love to do that some day.. but i need someone crazy enough to go with me to the US

  5. I love Black Friday!! I am almost done with shopping too. Need to see what I can find on Cyber Monday ;)
