Thanksgiving & Black Friday shopping...

 Well, we've survived Thanksgiving and the biggest shopping day of the year--Black Friday! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving and didn't over eat. We don't serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at our house. Instead, we have a seafood feast consisting of: Crab legs, lobster tails & shrimp. Let me tell you it was delicious! :)

I did not go shopping on Black Friday. I've never gone shopping on that day and probably never will. I already hate shopping as it is. I can spend about an hour in a store before I get antsy. I can't imagine getting out in those crazy crowds. I prefer to shop online. On the news it showed people camped out in tents in front of some of the stores since Monday morning?!?!

How in the world can you  put your life on hold all week and spend days camped out in front of a store. I could understand if they were giving away stuff for free, but standing in the cold for hours for a discount? That musta been some discount! :) I have friends that do it every year, and they enjoy themselves and say it's fun. Uh...hmm..I don't know about that LOL! If I have to shop it will be during the after Christmas sales :)

Now, it's time to prepare for Christmas! The constant Christmas music on the radio, more sales commercials, flyers in the mail. I love Christmas, it's my favorite holiday but it seems like they start celebrating too. I'm actually tired of listening to Christmas music by Christmas LOL! I went into a store during the last week of October  and it already had Christmas decorations up?!!? Slow down, people!

It's also Christmas wish list time! Have you made up your list?


  1. I never look forward to Christmas shopping, Beth. One of my kids is already stressing me by asking for something I've constantly told her she can't have. Why, oh, why does Christmas have to be so commercialized?

    On a more positive note...I've reviewed your book on Amazon and Goodreads. :)

    1. Exactly! it puts so much pressure on parents! Thanks for the review!!!

  2. I'm with you 100% on the shopping thing! My family and I went hiking in the mountains--much better than crowds and craziness. Enjoy your Christmas cheer!
