Christmas Shopping with Mom Tomorrow

I’m going Christmas shopping with my mom tomorrow.  Mike’s hunting again, so I’m going to spend the weekend at home.  We like to get all the shopping done in one day and then wrap everything on Sunday so that all of December, our tree has gifts under it.

So if you need gift ideas for me, go to my Pinterest page (at the top of my blog!) and click on 2011 Christmas List.  I marked what I’ve bought for myself already.  😉

An Uncrazy Black Friday

So it’s 9:25am on Black Friday.  I’m sitting with my family in the living room watching Storage Wars while Mom paints her nails and while my brother picks at leftover dessert for breakfast.

Mike is getting ready in the back, thinking about where we want to go:  Cleveland, Toledo, or Sandusky.

We’ll go out today to shop, but mostly to get our first taste of the Christmas spirit (minus my consistent listening of Justin Bieber’s Under the Mistletoe).  We just like to see the people, to drink coffee in the food court, and to walk under the gawdy Christmas decorations hanging from the ceiling.

While I’m a bigger fan of Cyber Monday (and cyber shopping in general), I still think Black Friday is an entertaining phenomenon.  It’s a chance to see people at their best, and at their worst.

So out we go into the world.  Happy Black Friday everyone!
