Christmas Holidays NaBloPoMo

*Believes the Hype*


Hope your Thanksgiving went well. For the very first time I cooked all of the food except for the turkey. Our spread included turkey, macaroni and cheese, dressing, collard greens, sweet potato souffle, potato salad, cranberry sauce, rolls and apple pie.

I am very proud of myself. The food tasted really good. I know I can do it now. Big shout out to Kita over at Saywhatuwanna for the sweet potato recipe.

We ate around 3 and layed around. Around 7 my son dragged us outside to put up the outdoor Christmas lights. We looking like the Griswold’s over here. Things just randomly placed but its what he wants…Tis the season

I told myself that I wouldn’t get suckered into the Black Friday foolery but low and behold as I type this I am fully dressed and will head out the door shortly after I hit publish. I live not far from an outlet and every year they do a midnight madness and the deals are like no other. I came across a coupon I had for Carter’s and the store is 60% plus I can use the 20% coupon so we’ll just say every child will have something from Carters. There is also a Children’s Place, Gap, Old Navy, Aeropostale and a few other good stores that literally give away clothes during the wee hours so out I head.

If I get some really good stuff I’ll do a vlog tomorrow with my findings.

I sincerely hope you and yours had an awesome day and are looking forward to the hustle and bustle of the next 4 weeks. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and glad to help. I only wanted some more games for the boy so glad I am done with the bulk of everything. Good luck in that madness near the outlet. I went last year and I lost a lot of weight walking because I could not park close.

    Dinner sounds yummy! Ours was low key, as the husband had to go into work! We went and ate at Cracker Barrel…the place was hopping!

    I did Black Friday once as an adult…never again!
