Black Friday, 2013, w/a PS
Brian also got me a vacuum. I really did need a new one, so I was super excited! We had talked about getting a TV because man, ours is on it's last leg....but in the end, while there were good deals on tv's themselves, when you price all the extra cables etc that you need to get it to work, it would have been spendy, so we decided to wait....until it breaks totally I guess. I doubt it'll make it to next Black Friday. Probably would have been smarter to get the tv now, and all the other parts as we can....but who wants to do that?? I'd rather get a purse. And bracelets and books.
If you are thinking, "wait a minute, what did Brian get?" ....well, he is one to wait for something he really wants. We went to the book store today to find some books he's been wanting, but they didn't carry them. So now he thinks maybe he'll register for some races instead...but so far he's holding tight to his Black Friday $. He did wear his new special shorts that Grandma Val got for him today and really loves them! Thanks goes out to Grandma and Grandpa for making this a special shopping day for us.
If you are curious, we have always done the early, like 1 a.m., shopping on Friday morning, but this year with most the stores opening at 8 on Thursday night....we took the Thursday night option. We went to the mall, Old Navy (which had a line wrapped around the store that was not worth waiting in), and Target (which was busy but not super crowded). We left the house at 7 Thursday night, and were home by 11:30.....and didn't get up until 9:30 this morning. Much different than the whole super early Friday morning craziness, and much more enjoyable!
Hope you all had a fun Black Thur/Friday!!
PS - Did anyone else watch the Garth special on TV tonight?? Garth still has it! That was the most enjoyable thing I have watched on TV in years!! Man, do his songs take me back. I love that he kept both Brian and I completely entertained with just his humor, songs, and a guitar. LOVED IT!!
