Shopping Before the Sun Rises.....

The day after Thanksgiving (a.k.a Black Friday) I enjoy getting up super early, usually up at 3:30 AM or so and head off to do a little bargain hunting with hubby. Yes, that's right, I have corrupted hubby...took a few years, but now he is totally hooked!! He is my partner in deal hunting every year now the day after Thanksgiving!! LOL LOL

We usually get up, get dressed, and then head off to Dunkin Donuts for a nice hot cup of Joe....piping hot coffee is just perfect sitting in our hands while standing in line to get into the first store on our list for that morning!! Standing in line is the hysterical part of the day....we get to hear everyone talking about what they will pick up first, how they will spilt up from one another if it gets to crowded, some even crack jokes on how silly we all must look standing in line at 4 am for a deal!!

Once the doors open it is like a rush, a thrill......really to see just what is left on the shelf, or display that we had planned on getting!! Sometimes items we had hoped to purchase are there, other times not!! That's how it goes, no biggie! We get what we can then off to the next store we go!! We have our list and fliers in hand......reminding each other what we need to pick up at place #2.

We usually hit up about 3-4 stores on Black Friday all before 8:30 am or so. The past few years we have been back home, or wherever we stayed on Thanksgiving night by 9 am. The kiddies are usually just sitting down to breakfast, so we join them and the family members who babysat for us while we were out.

Then at about 1pm, when the kiddies take their daily afternoon naps...hubby and I for the one day out of the year...are right there beside them...soon to be out like a light as well!!

By the time Black Friday is over, hubby and I can usually say that 90% of our holiday shopping is done....with the exception of a few items and gift cards we still have to pick up!! It's a morning for the two of us to look forward to every year..and to just see what great bargains we can manage to pick up!!

Lots more WFMW posts over at Rocks In My Dryer!!!

Free Breakfast on Black Friday until 10:30 AM!! Friday deal of the day is the MALM Queen sized bed frame for $99....That's 1/2 Off!!

On Saturday Only get the MALA Easel for just $9.99 (Reg $24.99) *limit two per customer (Paper roll sold separately).

It's Seen Better Days....

When we moved into our current home a few years back they had a nice little program to welcome us to our new neighborhood called "The Welcome Wagon". They sent us an address book with some local business name and numbers, along with coupons for local restaurants, car washes, businesses, etc. Well here is a picture of the address book we received almost 3.5 years's a bit beat up!!

Not to mention all the different slips of paper containing friends change of addresses, business cards from contractors or companies we have used while living here, etc. There is also a whole lot of crossing out of old info, pages torn, bent, pages not even attached to the book any longer....just a bit of a mess!!

Plus, I must admit if you were looking for the name and address of one of our friends or family member, you would have a bit of a hard time finding it. I have some names under last names, some under first names, some under maiden names, etc. I can assure you that you could never tell from my address book that I am a very neat and organized person!! LOL LOL

So my dear cousin asked me if I needed a new address book. She had a few new one she did not need....I was so excited!! It does not take much!! LOL LOL I have needed a new one for quite some time, and I was ready to have a nice organized one as well!!

So here it is........Ta-da!! Isn't it pretty?? I think so, anyway!! And guess what I wised up with this address book, I wrote down all the names and address's in pencil!! Genius, I know!! This way when someone moves, I can just erase the old and re-write the new in the same spot. No more crossing out, or X-ing out...or adding a slip of paper inside the book!!

Curious to see what others have tackled today?? Be sure to head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to see!!

Free Item at Bath & Body Works.....

Use this coupon in-store and receive a FREE item (up to $13) at your local Bath & Body Works store with any purchases of $10 or more. This would be great to use for a teachers gift, perhaps?? Coupon expires 12/24/08.
