    I got to take my FMIL to Macy's to look for a couple of specific items she saw in the paper (and I tried on some jeans but they didn't fit well) then headed over to JC Penney's with no parking spaces available so we headed back home. I got a pack of cigarettes on the way home, which is good enough for me since I hate shopping, even more so during the holidays!!!

    Site to store is the greatest, especially with locked up electronics during the busy season!!!

    Black Friday, I went to NY&Co at midnight and got a lot of clothes at 50% off. Then my sister and I drove though the Kohls parking lot and saw all the Houston nuts camping out in the 40 degree w/ rain & wind temps and opted to go back to our hotel and sleep instead.

    PRE Black Friday (kohls.com 3 weeks ago with free shipping and extra 20% off codes - which ended up being cheaper than Black Friday prices when I compared):
    Digital frame for my dad & stepmom
    Digital Video Recorders for both my sisters
    Jewelry for my 4 closest girl friends (all are BMs)A Penguin Pillow Pet for my niece (not really my niece, swhe's my cousins toddler, but my cousin and I are like sisters so I consider her my niece)
    Quesadilla Maker for my cousin and her other half

    I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

I got some $15 jeans for me and DH at old navy, and some awesome boots with my nordstrom rack groupon :)

    I bought Blu Ray DVDs and a camera through Amazon yesterday.  Bill bought us a 32" Samsung TV for our computer room through them too.  I bought some our Christmas pictures from Blu Door.  I bought a new desktop computer from Dell.  We bought some new things for both the bathrooms since one of them was completely ruined when my dad had an accident here.  I bought some Aggie t-shirts celebrating our win over the longhorns.  My dad bought a refrigerator and some new furniture for their living room/media room.  We started to go into Best Buy in Denton but the check out line was pretty long so Bill escorted me back out.

    My Loot!
    Laptop
    Ipod Speakers
    GPS
    Digital Picture Frame
    Philosophy Lip Gloss Set
    PJ's for FI and I
    Towels for my Bath
    Babycakes maker (Taking it back though)
    Ribbon
    Xmas Tree
    Ornament Garland
    Workout Shorts
    Reception Decor

    I haven't finished unpacking my car though...I think i'm forgetting something.

    BUT...

    I didn't do my norm (Camping out at Staples), but I was going to buy FI a laptop.

    At the last minute last night, I figured I wouldn't get FI the laptop. The flowergirl's Mom was going to wal-mart just to check it out at 9. She texted me and told me that there wasn't anyone there, but she said they weren't passing out the trampolines until 12. She was afraid that by the time she got to get a ticket for the laptop they would be out. I offerred to go and sit in line while she sat in line for the trampoline. I asked her how many she wanted and she said 3. I didn't know she included me in that count. I didn't want to wait till 5 and she offered to pick it up for me . YAY! It worked out. I went to Target to get my ipod speakers and picked up a gps for her.

    I know FI will love it :) He has NO IDEA!

     I love Black Friday :)

    I will say this though, this black friday was the most enjoyable one thus far! Everyone was so polite.

    I started at 10pm thursday night, and stopped at 10am Friday morning!

    Went to Coach Outlet in allen- stood in line outside for an hour, but I got my mom a new coach bag (honestly, the sale was NOT any better than their normal sales! had I known before I wouldn't have waited- they didn't give any details other than "its a great sale")

    From there went to wal-mart @ Midnight, and got in line for the $198 laptop DH and I wanted to get it for his parents.- I was told when I got there that they had "88" laptops and I was number 40, they handed out the tickets-but you have to stay in line at all times  until 5am (other than a 15min break to go to the restroom) SO I stood in that line for OVER 5 hours. At 4:30am the manage came out and said "we miss counted the # of lap tops we have- we actually only have 34" NEEDLESS TO SAY----WE WERE ALLL VERY VERY UPSET! I had been in the line for 5 hours, long story short- they tried to "give" us a $50 gift card- NOT Ok with that idea--so after another 2 hours of them "trying to figure it out" they came back and said they had a comparable lap top they'd sell us for the $198. IN THE END IT WORKED OUT BETTER- because it was a little bit better laptop for the same price!!

    THEN to Target for a few small things-- FINALLY home @10am and slept until about 2pm!

    <div>It's really fun, the only part that stinks is that we live in an apartment, so we had to move furniture around to be able to get the "best" distance so the sensor could pick up both of us.  We have the wii too and it's fun, but I like how this makes you use several parts of your body that you normally wouldn't with a game. </div><div>
    </div><div> I had to actually work on Friday (from home) and would turn around and see Chris trying out the dance game (he's a bad dancer so it's cute to see him doing actual dance moves.)</div>
