This year we were on a mission... One 32" Tv for the crazy, only on black Friday price of $198.00. Not for me this time around, but for Aunt Gwen.
I told Aunt Gwen that I forgot to get a picture of us shopping so that I could blog about it... she just laughed as always. Gotta love Aunt Gwen. She wouldn't be laughing if she knew what I was about to show you instead.
I figured since I was going to chat about Aunt Gwen... I should let you meet her... (these pics are just as embarrassing for me btw!)
NO WORRIES!! She no longer has a fro and I no longer have those shorts... or those glasses!! :)
Gwen and I pretty much grew up together. She is a little under four years older than I am. SHE IS the one person I can always count on to show up at birthdays and Baptisms and First Communions. She is there for me... anytime I need her! I LOVE HER FOR THAT!
So now that "meeting" Aunt Gwen is out of the way... I suppose I should get back to my post...
Every year I flip through the Black Friday ads... scanning... plotting... mapping out every move as if we were standing on a chess board. I LOVE the chase of it all.
Weird, I know!
Plans were set and I left my house at 1:30am and headed to Walmart. YES... Walmart.
Once we found the proper line we were suppose to be in... the wait began(we had to wait until 5am for the deal). This year the store opened at midnight so the lines were inside. This particular Walmart was pretty organized which always makes the experience less stressful. We each took turns running around the store to score the door buster deals the had starting at midnight.
Just so you know... I am a BAD people watcher. Shame on me I know, but I can't help it... it makes for great entertainment and I just can't resist.
Of course you have seen people of Walmart.com. We all know that Walmart is the epiphany of people watching madness. Right?
Well... let me introduce you to "Weird Al Dynamite".
Poor thing was just a little on the weird side. His mannerism, his water bottle shoved in his "Urkel" pants. His sweatband and yes... I do believe that WAS indeed a Mullet!
I shouldn't make fun... he probably doesn't know any better. But he made the time go fast.
On a good note... we DID score the TV.
Then... it was off to Target via a quick pit stop at Starbucks for a yummy White Chocolate Mocha Latte.
Target was a bust... both Targets we stopped at were out of the uber cool video gaming chair that I wanted to nab for Justin. O-well! That's the black Friday game... you win some... you loose some.
In the end... I scored a $40 video recorder for Leighanna, two $8 jogging suits for Justin, a cute little velor sweat suit for me $20. Guess was having an additional 50% off and I scored a $10 shirt for me and REALLY CUTE $10 shorts for Leighanna. $2 fleece gloves and hat for my upcoming trip to freezeville and some cute $25 furry boots. All that and I was home by 10am.
I have not been to sleep yet!
I am T-I-R-E-D!
Anthony left to go hunting about 45 minutes after I got home so it will be a quiet weekend with my two favorite kiddos and Oakley.
Twas a good day of laughter, girl chat and the game of shopping!
NOW... GOOD FRIGGIN NIGHT!!!!!
