I {Heart} Black Friday!


1. If you could be a fly on any wall, which would you choose?

I can't really think of any walls that I would want to hang around. Besides flies are gross and annoying....

2. Do you budget your Christmas shopping or just get it done without budgeting?

Oh, we budget (Hi, Dave Ramsey!), setting limits on what we spend on whom, creating a list, and searching out the best deals. What a rush! Black Friday is glorious and the Rev makes an excellent chauffeur! He gets up so early and just takes me wherever I need to go so that I can use all of my Early Bird coupons (even the craft store--he naps in the car) and I don't even complain when we stand in line at Big Lots to get a grown man a Guitar Hero...

3. What is the craziest fad diet you have ever done?

None too crazy, but I did have a pretty good run with Slimfast and Stacker2, before they made ephedrine illegal...and for the record, there is nothing "sensible" about dinner when you have been drinking glorified chocolate milk all day...

4. Is there a TV show that you have seen every episode/season of?

One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek, and I might have stormed the offices if Joey and Pacey had not ended up together. Dawson was a weenie...

5. What one song always pulls at your heart?

OK, you will think that I am so weird, but there are two that choke me up every time I hear them--Silent Night (can never even sing more than the first few words) and oddly and I do not know why--Happy Birthday. I told you it was weird!

I LOVE Black Friday. Best part of the Thanksgiving holiday. :) Every Thanksgiving, I have a routine. I go through the sales papers and do a preliminary scan. Then I go through again and take notes. Then I decide on the order of stores.

So much fun. :) My family thinks I'm crazy.

I miss shopping on Black Friday, lots of fun memories!
To answer your question on the Wilton Color Spray cans......I actually have never used them. I applied a streak of tinted buttercream down the insides of the piping bag, orange on one side and black on the other. You can also do multiple colors for a rainbow effect. If you want a darker tint try applying a line of food coloring gel with a toothpick, works well. Real easy and you end up with a really nice result!

Black Friday is so much fun. I took my husband last year, won't be doing that again. He could not handle the crowds.
I have to agree Dawson was a weenie lol.

Coming your way through 5QF. :)

I've only gone shopping on Black Friday once . . . and that was one time too many! I guess I don't do well in crowds. lol

I love your blog. Thanks for sharing!

I understand completely about slim-fast, I always seem to over eat after doing it, strawberry milk all day is still not a good meal substitute.
