Hope your Thanksgiving was nice. We had a good time with Dave's family. Loved Mom M's Thanksgiving table.
Thanksgiving Day- 4:30pm
The weather was beautiful.
Thanksgiving Day- 11:30pm
Dave and I participated in our very first late night Black Friday sale. We got to Old Navy at 9pm on Thanksgiving and waited for 3 hours until they opened the store at midnight. We were the 12th and 13th in line (of about 400) and each got a free kodak digital camera!! We are so happy- the boys each have wanted a camera for some time- so win-win for us...get to shop the deals and get 2 cameras to boot. (don't tell the boys...Granna, that includes you :) The store was packed, but we came out unscathed. Did you shop Black Friday? Tell me what happened for you. I have always said (when people ask me if I shop black Friday) that I would if there was something worth it for me- and this year it was worth it. (Oh, and Dave talked me into it and fed me mint m&ms)
Then, then! We stopped for a surprise Ikea visit on the way home. I was just dozing off to sleep when the car veered off the highway and onto...Ikea Boulevard! Ikea is about the halfway point from Dave's parent's house to ours- so it was the perfect time to stop and eat some Swedish meatballs and roam around. I wish I could have stuck this adorable little couch in my pocket and brought it home!
Now for a veer off topic.....raw oatmeal! Did you know you can pour yourself a bowl of old fashioned oats, add toppings (bananas, honey + walnuts, or apples + cinnamon), pour on the milk, and have a delicious cereal? I read about this somewhere. I like it as long as there are topping- but when you run out of toppings it gets a little tedious.
Another plus from the purple camera- panorama shots!
We put the tree(s) up before we left for Thanksgiving and I am soooo glad we did. It was perfect to come home late on Friday night and see the trees waiting for us.
So, I have 2 questions for you:
1. Did you shop black Friday
2. Is your tree up yet?
