Black Friday....

We do most of our holiday shopping online these days, searching for the best deals and the best cash back rebates on websites like Ebates and Fatwallet.... So we never succumb to the lure of Walmart at 3 a.m. or whatever ungodly time they were open today...  

This morning, however, I couldn't resist the lure of deals on fabric at Joann's and discounted holiday garlands at Michael's and so I headed out at about 7:30 since we were already up for the day.  

Got some great fabric but spent about 45 minutes waiting in line to have my fabric cut (fortunately I snagged a number for the cutting counter when I first arrived and was able to wander around until they called my number.  Unfortunately, the wandering around resulted in several impulse purchases making their way into my basket...).  Most of the other customers were very patient but there were definitely a few who seemed to be missing the holiday spirit.  An older woman had at least 40 bolts of flannel in her cart and was hissing at anyone who stood near her cart that they were hers...  Relax lady, have some eggnog or something!

Paul, LP, and I headed to the mall to walk around a bit and then came home to start getting the Christmas decorations out.  We spent a good hour rearranging the living room furniture trying to figure out where to put our tree this year, only to end up with everything back where it started after we decided to see how wide our tree is when we pick one out tomorrow....

And now, the effects of turkey dinner #2 are settling in and so it's time to adjourn to the couch with a fuzzy blanket...

Hope you all had a great Friday and got some great shopping deals if you were out there braving the crowds!
