Happy Black Friday!! How was your Thanksgiving? How many of you braved the crowds and went shopping last night or today?? How did you do? Any wild stories? I, myself, stayed home and am doing the online shopping thing instead. I worked a few Black Fridays at Bath & Body Works back in college and I’m pretty happy to be at home right now. I decided if I ever do go Black Friday Shopping, I need to
drag bring a few family members or friends and we MUST wear matching sweat suits and be equipped with whistles. If I’m gonna do it, I’m not going to play around. However you plan on shopping this year, may you find great deals and not forget what we celebrated yesterday. Good luck out there.
