Black Friday

13 Stores

6 Girls

1 Expedition

It Must be Black Friday. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Ever wondered what Target looks like at 6:00am? Yeah, me either. But I know now!



My Mom, two aunts, sister, little brother’s girlfriend, and I were up at 5:00 am ready and roaring to shop. We spent the morning in east Orlando hitting Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Old Navy, Best Buy, etc. It was an intense morning of deal seeking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before we left the house I had pear as my pre-breakfast.


Once we had a few hours of shopping behind us, we stopped at Panera for breakfast.


I had an Egg & Cheese Sandwich on a Whole Grain Bagel.


My food didn’t even have time to digest before we were up and at it again. This time, we headed to the mall.


So many great ‘before noon deals!’ I had tons of success at Express, New York & Co, and Ann Taylor Loft with 40% off the entires store in addition to discounted coupons I already had on hand!




Around noon we broke for lunch at an Indian restaurant down the road from the mall. This was my mom and aunts’ first experience with Indian food, so we opted for the buffet option.


After assuring m aunt that Indian food ‘isn’t spicy,’ I felt instantly guilty when the first bite I had was some of the spiciest Indian food I had ever tried. I guess buffet style Indian food is automatically super spicy?


It was good, but between the 6 of we we downed 2 or 3 pitchers of water and split several plats of orange slices at the end. Something tells me I didn’t my mom and aunts over to the ‘Indian lovers for life club. ‘ Oh well.

We had too much shopping to do to worry about food anyways. ๐Ÿ˜‰



Needless to say by the end of the day, we were running out of room for the 6 of us in the expedition!!




Pumpkin Bread stashed in my purse for a mid-afternoon snack.


We called it quits just 12 short hours after pulling out of the driveway.

I was quite proud of my haul (however, my credit card as seen better days…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


No peaking until Christmas!


After a long day of being on feet, I kept it simple for dinner with a basic left over Thanksgiving salad.


With a beer for good measure


Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball for dessert


I’m off to fight Derek for the remote.

Let’s see here – Life: Primates vs Elf – which would you choose?
