First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrated yesterday. If not, hopefully you had a great day anyhow. Thanksgiving dinner with each of our families was great. Lots of laughs, great food and time spent with some of the most wonderful people in the world.
There's nothing like the holidays.
So, you might be asking yourself why I am posting at just about 2:00 am. The reason has to do with last night. You see there's this little thing called Black Friday- you may have heard about it. Crazy sales at unGodly hours and the such. Well, after thanksgiving dinner it has become tradition that my boyfriend (God bless his soul...), his sisters and I head to the outlet stores that open at midnight and get some AMAZING deals during the black friday event. It really is quite an experience. There are tons and tons of people and really, the deals can't be beat...sweaters at j.crew at 40% off, everything in Banana Republic at 50%, between 50-60% off at Ann Taylor. I think you get the point.
This year it ended up being mmb, myself and his little sister, e. Luckily for the three of us we all have a good sense of humor and can keep ourselves entertained because as it turns out, we weren't the only ones with the brilliant idea to hit the shops. In fact, enough people decided to go that it provided us with a lovely 3 1/2 hours of traffic to sit in! We each took turns having mini-hissy fits(hehe) but kept in good spirits and made the most of it. It was actually quite fun! Once we arrived at about 2:30 am we shopped til the sun came up then headed back to the car in the pouring rain and headed to the Cape to spend the night there. We all slept until about 3:30 this afternoon (thus the disruption is sleep cycle) and then we three shop-til-you-droppers(literally) topped off our evening with a delicious dinner at a fabulous restaurant in Chatham with mmb's parents and other sister.
It has been a really fantastic Thanksgiving. I am going to cherish every second of this holiday season. I have so much to be grateful for.
