High Five for (Black) Friday

I had a perfectly relaxing first married Thanksgiving with Austin, and I learned a few things:

  1. I can successfully bake a Pumpkin Butter Cake as good as Mom makes.
  2. I have some amazing extended family on my married side who helped make my belly and my heart overwhelmingly full with delicious food and so much laughter.
  3. Dallas Black Friday is nothing like Amarillo Black Friday –in a very good way.
    More stores = more options = less crazies per store. (Except Ulta –ladies be crazy for beauty everywhere.)

A Thanksgiving with a little baking, a little crafting, Macy’s Parade, an overflowing of food, family, and shopping. What more could a girl ask for, I ask you? God has given us some beautiful blessings.

A fourth point I learned:  I’m becoming a seriously boring old married woman (who’s surprised?)I got way too excited over a little Dirt Devil Hand Vac, and way too disappointed the yarn selection had been picked over. (What weirdo out there –besides myself– noticed crafting yarn was on sale and got there early and bought it all before me?)

To follow up on what I actually came home with versus my picks, a few Black Friday Buy highlights (link to products through photos):

Dirt Devil Hand VacThis aforementioned gem. (If you need me, I’ll just be over here unnecessarily vacuuming every nook and cranny of my apartment.)

Chopper This little chopper –no more crying into my cutting board. Take that, onions.

Volcano Room Spray
The Anthropologie surprise is 25% off everything today, so a great day to pick up something like this Capri Blue Volcano room spray that ne-ver goes on sale and is what I imagine Heaven smells like.


A couple of much needed BOGO free storage baskets from World Market to keep my crafting messes under control. (World Market was such a great idea. If you haven’t gone, do.)


A couple of (much needed -ha) BOGO free pretties from World Market.

I was too exhausted in Target last night to find what I was looking for (I obviously didn’t properly caffinate. Rookie mistake.) But I’m willing to bet they see me again before the sun sets on this Black Friday.

Did you have any luck? Tell me about it in the comments!

    I hit up the LOFT 50% off sale and bought WAY too much, but I didn’t feel like trying anything on, so I know a lot will end up going back once I see how it all fits. I also surprised my husband picked up a Xbox One at Best Buy. Target was having the best deal on them, but they were all gone by the time I got there about 11pm. And I just ordered some household stuff from Kohl’s (oh the wonder of online shopping!) so all-in-all, a pretty successful Black Friday!

    Black Friday is only just becoming ‘a thing’ in the UK and it seems that who whole country went mad today! Black Friday here is traditionally the Friday before Christmas when everyone goes out for more than a few drinks!
