So this year I decided I would brace all the crazy people and go out shopping on black friday....meaning I became one of those people that go shopping at crazy hours but I was not the I am going to fight you for this item crazy. haha So my friend Rebecca, her little sister and I set out to have a nice fun adventure! Becca had a nice little list of things she wanted/needed to get while Katie and I were more along for the ride and would see what we found.
|Bec and I at Target at 4am|
Next stop was Kohls. We didnt get there till like 1am and we thought maybe it wouldnt be to crazy. Well we were way wrong, Kohls was the worst place we went to all night/morning. When we walked in we were shocked at how long the checkout lines was. Both sides we backed up all the way to the back of the store. It was just NUTS! We thought we would just waste some time looking around, trying some things on in hopes that the line would be shorter by the time we were ready to leave. Boy were we wrong. We spent about an hour just looking around so about 2:30am we got in line to check out. We were in line for over an hour! All I wanted was to buy this 5pc place setting for my aunt because it was 1/2 off and its her favorite. I almost said forget it I will come back tomorrow (because their sale was a 2 day sale) but I finally got to check out and move on to the next store.
Target was next. We completely missed the rush and they were kind of dead when we got there! The first stop once we walked in the store was Starbucks! We needed some coffee because we still had 2 more stores left to go to when we were finished there. We really did not have a reason to go to Target other than because it was beside Kohls so why not. LOL (great thought process) We spend about an hour in Target just looking around. I ended up buying 2 movies from Target. New Moon for $3 and Eclipse for $5. I was very happy about getting them so cheap since I am obsessed with this series! This by far was the easiest place to check out of and I think but the time we left there at like 4:30am we were starting to get a little delirious for being up so late.
Next we went to Old Navy. I just wanted to check out what they had on sale. I ended up buying a new long sleeve shirt that has a hood and front pocket. I had to talk myself out of buying other things! I really wanted to buy a scarf but I told myself I already have like 6 so I didnt need another one right now. Exp since the weather has stayed really mild and I cant really wear them.
Our last stop was the mall because Becca wanted to get a GPS that was on sale. It was 5:45am by the time we got there and we were all starting to get really tired. Once we were finished at Radio Shack we thought about going in other stores but it was 6am and we all just wanted to go to bed!
We left the mall and we and got some Bojangles. Got back to Beccas at 6:45am ate our food and I was asleep by 7am. So with that being said, I was up for a straight 24 hours. I have not done that in a very long time. I am very shocked at how well my body held up and how I did not really start to feel tired until like 5:30am or so. But over all I had a really good time. It was not as crazy as I thought it would be but this might be because I wasnt really looking for anything so I didnt have to wait in lines or deal with the crazy people. I do think this is something I will do again as long as it will be as stress free and fun as this experience!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed their time with friends and family! It is not the count down to my favorite holiday of the year and I cant wait!! Let The Holiday Season and Listening to Christmas Music Begin!
