And Thanksgiving was great with his family. A TON of people came. More than usual it seemed like. Maybe around 100-125 people at least. Lots of fun and his family is seriously the greatest. It’s so nice that he has such a wonderful and big family because I’m not used to that at all.
I know this is what you are all waiting for (obviously it’s very serious! I’m joking…) but we tried Black Friday shopping again. And I hated it. We left Thanksgiving dinner kind of late so we weren’t able to wait in the lines early enough (not that I was seriously going to do that anyways because I hate cold weather and lines). We drove by Best Buy, Target, Walmart and they were all SUPER PACKED. So we just drove over to the mall to get some deals (nearly everything in the entire mall was at least 40% off). We went to American Eagle and some other stores and I bought some cute cardigans and sweaters and I love it all.
We called up everywhere, and no place still had the $199 Playstation 3s, so we went back to Target at night time and bought one for the normal price at $249. Oh well. We also bought the BF some stuff.
As I’ve told you guys, me and the BF just go on shopping trips and buy stuff for ourselves and then just buy a couple surprise presents for us to unwrap. Yes it’s super boring (and not Christmassy romantic at all), but it’s what we like.
How was your Thanksgiving and Friday?
But the date night idea was a great addition into your Christmas presents too 🙂 Holly <a href="http://www.cakesandcalculus.blogspot.com” target=”_blank”>www.cakesandcalculus.blogspot.com

$199 for a PS3 would've been a great deal. You guys should play the Uncharted series.
We hit target at like 2 in the morning and it was empty but we werent looking for electronics. At least it wasn't much more expensive to get it.
Crazy girl! 😉 lol! That's a bummer that you couldn't get a deal on the PS3! 🙁
To me black friday sounds like hell but worth it if you get what your after! I got my hubby a ps3 about 3 years ago on an internet deal – sign up for 2 years then get a free ps3 – brilliant and he was so surprised coz we were broke at that point! I liked your post on TV, I'm in the middle, I like having one and hubby likes the games but sometimes I think I'd prefer life without one… LOVE the laptop though – couldn't live without my mac lol
100-125 people?! Omg. Thats a lot of family. Sounds amazing.
Michael and I wrap up a few surprises but mostly we know what we're getting because we shop together. This year we're going to split the cost of a new TV. We still have one of those HUGE TVs that weighs about a thousand pounds – it's time to downsize!
It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Sorry about the the crowds…it sounded like you got some good deals anyway!
Well geez, and I thought 20 people + 5 dogs at my in-laws' house was a lot!! Glad you had a fun Thanksgiving, even if you didn't get your $199 PS3!
