Sometimes life is surprising. Just when I think I have it all figured out, something comes and knocks me off my feet. Luckily, all of my surprises this week have been good. Better than good, amazing actually.
Thanksgiving was really good, low stress, the food was good, and there was very little clean up. Someday I am going to go all out and make a huge dinner, complete with centerpieces, and things from scratch, but this is not that year. I added water to things, stirred, and had a great time doing it!
Black Friday was everything I imagined it would be! We went to the outlets, which we thought opened at midnight, but ended up opening at ten! We went to Gap, Banana Republic, and Victoria's Secret, and then at 12:30 went to Target where we camped out until 5. This is when things got interesting. We were about 20th in line, and I knew I wanted a Chi hair straightener, as did Alisha. The ladies behind us let me know where they would be (apparently they frequent this Target a lot!) so it became my mission to get one. The doors open. I try not to be one of the crazy running people, but I can't help it! I'm too excited! Plus, I can't feel my feet due to camping out for the last 4 hours... I find the Chi's (does anyone else think it is funny that it sounds like cheese?), there are only four of them, and they are locked up. I finally found a worker, and asked them to please open it so I can get them! I run back to the display, where I am still the only one there. Very quickly, a line starts to form. I inform those around me that I am getting two. The lady finally comes to open the display, and hands me one. I tell her I need two. She looks at the line, which now has about 10 people in it, looks at the Chi's and looks at me. Everyone was glaring at me as she handed me my second one! I took it and high tailed it out of there as fast as I could! I spent the rest of the time in Target hiding them under a down comforter, hoping no one would recognize me.
