What are your Black Friday Plans?

     With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I've been seeing many posts about Black Friday deals and shopping locally.  I love the idea of shopping locally I try to do so whenever possible to support our community, but I will not be out shopping on Black Friday. I know some people love it, but I can't handle big crowds and long lines I don't even like going to the grocery store when it's busy. I have friends who go to the store at 4am, I for one enjoy my sleep too much to be up at that time by choice, but to each their own. I have never been out shopping on Black Friday, and probably never will. My mom loves it though and all the deals out there, I know many people do.
   I will be at home with these guys, putting up our Christmas decorations because it takes all my will power not to put them up before Thanksgiving. I can't wait!


  1. I'll definitely be shopping!!! I think Black Friday is my favorite holiday. It is a holiday, right? LOL!!!

  2. me too. I want to go so bad, to see all the deals. I don't think I could handle it though. I have 2 kids, and there is no way that I could stay out all night shopping with them at home, probably crying because they want me..lol
    Im your newest follower. would love a follow back.

  3. I used to be one of those crazy Black Friday people shopping at 4:00 a.m. But for the past couple of years, I haven't found anything worth losing sleep over...literally. If you watch ads and shop on-line, you'll find much better deals.

    However, this year, I'll be shopping local for Black Friday. My favorite mom-and-pop running store is having BF specials and new running shoes are on my wish list.

  4. Oh and excuse my manners! Your photos are precious!

  5. We are going out this year, again. I went last year to walmart. I got a few things locally for our kids, but we want to get them a trampoline, and I have yet to find one on etsy. ;)

    Walmart at 10pm last year was crowded, but not like I expected; it was my first experience with BF and I wasn't disappointed. It was actually fun. So, our plan is to go this year, get the trampoline and a few other toys, some pajamas, and pyrex storage (real party animal here). I hope it's a good experience again.
    PS- we already put our tree up, at the request of our little Diva.

  6. Lovely blog and lovely family!
