Black Friday… one of the days #1 and I look forward to all year long. We love the bargains, and people watching.. but mostly love the time we get to spend together. We make a list on Thanksgiving Day of all the things we need, and figure out what time we need to be there to get those things.
You didn't really think I was going to show you the list did you?
This Black Friday morning we left the house at 3:45AM and
headed up to Target in Olathe, Kansas. Target was
having a sale on a couple of things we needed and one thing
We arrived at Target around 4:30AM. There was already a HUGE
LINE. The white arrow is where the corner of Target starts…
the red arrow is where Patrick and #1 are waiting. The line got
even longer as it got closer to 5:00AM. (When Target opened)
Here's #1 and Patrick waiting with their SUPER COOL bags
Target handed out to the first 500 people in the store.
Here's Patrick loading up "the beast". I highly recommend having Patrick go shopping with you.. why? He loads the car,pushes the cart through the traffic jams (so we can go on ahead and shop).
We shopped at several places.. Target, Old Navy, Avenue, Starbucks, Michael's, Mardel, Hobby Lobby, S Scents, Apple Store, and Costco.
I think when you go to bed as late as we did (12:30AM) and leave as early as we did.. you are pretty tired. That is what I'm going to
blame what happened next on.. being tired. Around lunchtime we
headed to On The Border restaurant. Like most Mexican
restaurants they serve chips and salsa.
Patrick thought the chips were rather large and decided to
karate chop them in the bowl.
Patrick (being exhausted) didn't realize how funny that was to
#1 and I.
He still doesn't realize we are laughing because of his "karate".
I believe he get's it now…
Really.. It was funny.. or maybe we were exhausted and that made
Some of our loot.. This year I'm sad to say we did not go to Toys R Us.
We've gone every year.. but this year, we decided there wasn't anything
we needed THAT bad. You see when we go to Toys R Us one of us stands in the already formed check outline.. while the other shops! There is always a line to get into Toys R Us, and a line to check out. This check out line wraps and weaves in and around the store.
I told you she was tired.. She's sleep walking! Rest up #1 you have 364
days until your next Black Friday adventure.
