It has felt like forever since I’ve last posted! With prepping and black friday shopping, Thanksgiving was chaotic for me; but I had a great time with family and friends nonetheless. We had two Thanksgiving dinners on Thursday. The first was in Sonoma which was two hours away from my home. Boyfriend’s family celebrates with a late lunch so lunch started at 3 and my family dinner starts at 6 so we ate super quick with his family and then drove back two hours to celebrate with mine. We were late but it was okay; it was still nice to be together. Being a pescatarian, I didn’t have many options during boyfriend’s dinner because he is Filipino and most Filipino dishes have meat; even the vegetables ones. I just had a bread roll, a little slice of steamed fish, mashed potatoes without gravy, and 2 shrimps. It was still delicious. I didn’t eat much at my family party since I was still full from earlier.
My cousins and I ventured to Target for black friday shopping at 9:00 PM to see if they had any good deals. There were a TON of people and the line was super long. Once we got in, I scored on three games: scrabble, jenga, and hedbandz (Disney version). All three games were 7 dollars each! Seemed like a good deal to me. We went to a local shopping mall at noon the next day…was way too tired to hit up the malls at midnight. How people do that…I have no idea. I was super tired! Still scored on a bunch of good stuff…this was my first successful Black Friday shopping. I got 3 blazers for 45 dollars!! Awesome right?!
How was your guys’s thanksgiving and black friday shopping? Score any good finds? Leave me a comment!
