Sometimes 4am is not early enough...

When it comes to Black Friday shopping!!! For my family this is sort of a new holiday tradition, when we were younger my mom and step-dad (more Chris than my mom) would wake at wee hours of the morning and do the mad dashes across the stores to get the goods for all 5 of us kids, sadly Chris passed away 3 years ago and so now us "kids" carry on this (some call crazy) tradition of getting up way to early and standing out in the cold'ish weather getting the good deals!
Only 3 of the 5 were up early last year!
L-R: Jarrod, Tiffany (James' GF), James & Me

This year I have some tips for you and your family if you plan on doing this too, I found these on iVilliage.

  1. Make a list & make sure to budget!

  2. Do your research, use the web, before you get the Thursday paper; Black Friday Ads

  3. Shop co-op

  4. Delegate

  5. Be size wise

  6. Price Match & find discounts

  7. Make friends in high places

  8. Online vs. In line

Happy Thanksgiving and happy shopping!!

Im it!

I got tagged so here I go with my 7 random facts.


  1. I HATE driving with a passion, but it comes with the job...

  2. Anytime I get anything out of the fridge to drink, I have to shake it, soda, milk, water...I don't know why, but that's just what I do

  3. I was born & raised in Florida, it might not sound like much to you, but there are not to many of us around

  4. My office is a mess & I wish someone else would clean it up, actually that is on my Christmas list :0)

  5. I will only eat green banana's they can be a little yellow at the bottom but if they are all yellow I will not eat them! (Crazy I know!)

  6. My hubby & I dated in HS ~ broke up, grew up, reconnected and fell in love :0) He is the best!

  7. one of the things on my bucket list is to vacation to Egypt, but I want to get my hands dirty and dig up some ancient artifact, sounds fun right!!

OK now I have to tag...let's see how about...
