Here Comes Christmas

Yesterday was BLACK FRIDAY as they call it, was a fun day. I had intended to JuMp out of bed at 5:30am and rush to the stores to get the bargains. When I woke up at 5:45am and looked at the clock and felt the chill, I snuggled back under the covers til 8am.

I got up and made coffee and enjoyed my emails and then decided to get going. I am sooo glad I didn't JuMp out of bed at 5:45am because I still got the deals I wanted without being a sleepy head :}

I was at walmart and got some cute shirts for my nieces for Christmas for $4 EACH!!! I also went searching for the Cricut Expressions which was suppose to be on sale for $199. Now, I didn't expect it to be there but when I looked in the scrapbooking section and saw the empty slot, I knew they were gone. There was a sales ladies a few aisle's away and we struck up a conversation laughing about the crowds and her trying get work done while people asked her questions so I asked her about the Expressions.

She said you know they may have put some over in the material aisle so check there and electronics. Well, I wasn't going near Electronics as it WAS a madhouse so off I went to material. Taa Daa there they were on the end of the aisle! I deemed this a sign that I should have one :} so I threw it in my basket and happily sang christmas carols to myself as I wandered through the store.

I do love shopping and I like the crowds even though you can be playing chicken with your baskets sometimes :}

I wanted to mention my NEW Christmas banner too. I had my blog banner professional, Sandy of The Blog Banner Queen from Canada make me my holiday banner. Isn't it cute? She always does such a good job and I sent her some photos of the doggie, bird and santa in the banner and she does her magic and makes them pretty and interesting. When you get a chance, check out her blog too because she has some beautiful works of art going on.

I leave you with pics of a beautiful paper bag book I purchased last year and must use this year.

Let me know the deals you got on Black Friday! Always love to hear about great deals :} HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
