This past weekend and all this week Josh has been checking out all the Black Friday ads, online and the ones that came in the mail. And yesterday he asked me to sit down with Him and make a list of what we wanted from certain stores. He was super excited about going, not sure why, but he was!
So we made our list, ate some Thanksgiving dinner and that night headed out to the first stop, good ol' Wal Mart. We drug poor Paisley along but luckily Nancy came and sat in the car with her while Josh and I ran in (since she was sleeping...Paisley, not Nancy :) He headed for the PS3 games and I wanted a mini chopper and hand mixer. (I didn't have one...but, I do now!) Most of the time spent in the store was waiting, you couldn't start grabbing things till mid-night.
About 5 till you could seriously hear the roar of people on the other aisles and then all of a sudden I was being pushed involuntarily toward the mini chopper I was hoping to get for a whopping $2.97. The kind lady next to me made it there first then handed me one. With a quick thanks I made my way down to the hand mixer. Grabbed one of those and headed to the register, I got a call from Josh, he was already in line with all the games he wanted!
I later found out that Josh had literally gotten down on his hands and knees and was reaching between peoples legs to get the games he wanted!(seriously!? my Husband!? I was so proud!) ;) He was excited and enjoyed the thrill. From the time we grabbed the stuff, checked out and then headed to the car it was only 12:05! Good, right!? :)
So, we went home and all slept. Josh and Nancy got up about 3:40 am! And then headed to Target...I continued to sleep!
Best Buy followed...
I woke up around 8-ish thanks to Paisley. Josh was still not home.
I text him and he said he was just now checking out at Best Buy!
He got home around 9 or so with all but 1 thing we had on our list! He was so excited and he had a great time! It was his first Black Friday experience and He was happy he got all the things he wanted and we knocked out a few Christmas gifts while he was out shopping till he dropped!
I liked all the deals, but I'm not to into the fighting crowds.
As I was standing in Wal Mart waiting for mid-night I kept thinking, look at all these crazy people! Then I realized I was there myself! :) Guess I was just as crazy for one night, one store! I'm glad Josh had fun, we'll see if he goes again next year!?
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
