Fa La La La La....


It's the most wonderful time of the year....

I know, it's not even Thanksgiving yet.  The radio is playing Christmas music and the stores have been decorated for Christmas for months, is it any wonder I'm already in the Christmas spirit?

And by "Christmas spirit", I mean "ready to shop"!

The count down is on:

4 days until Black Friday!

Do you partake? 

My mom and I shop every year.  All day long.  We shop, we wait in line, we move on to the next store where we shop and we wait in line.  I don't even know how many years this has been going on.  Some years, we have friends or aunts or cousins join us, some years it's just the two of us.  My awesome husband always takes the day after Thanksgiving off work so I can join thousands of crazy (mostly) women in the stores.

It's not really about getting the shopping done.  It's about the experience.

This gem is from 2 years ago.  My mom and aunt sitting in the extended cart (the one that holds a bunch of kids--we call it "the bus") waiting in line to check out at 3am....and I'm just noticing now that we were in the Depends aisle.  This makes me giggle.  A lot.

I must admit that this year, I don't have a ton of stuff to buy in the stores as I've been doing a lot of shopping online.  I know.  Totally cheating, but this way I can shop a little at a time and the credit card bill from Black Friday won't knock my socks off.

Speaking of online shopping...ViewSport is having a Black Friday sale starting at 12am on Friday.  15% off of everything site-wide (with the coupon code blackfriday2013)!  PLUS by clicking my special link, you'll save 10%.  Sweet!  Click this link to shop.

My current favorite from ViewSport: "Be You" short sleeved shirt

Women's ViewSPORT "Be You" Performance Short-Sleeve Crew
ViewSport is different from other clothing brands because of their sweat technology.  Hidden messages appear in the clothes when you sweat.  I just adore the "Be You (tiful)".  Love it.
Still speaking of shopping...
Have you seen these?

Puzzle Light by Infinity Lights.  How cool is this?!  I think the little ladies will each be getting one from the Jolly Man....
Have I mentioned how much I love shopping?  It's really a shame that I don't have endless funds....or even plentiful funds....
How about you? 
Shopping: Love it?  Or hate it?
Black Friday shopping: Love it?  Or avoid it like the plague?
