**** GIVEAWAY***

Most of you know I am going to New York for Thanksgiving. So I thought I would do I little giveaway. I will be giving away a prize that I will buy in New York. I'm not sure yet what it will be but I promise you'll like it . There's this nice market at Bryant Park that has all kinds of things so I might get it there.It most likely will be Christmas related. But anyways leave a comment telling me what you will be doing for Thanksgiving or what your gonna miss about it. You can even leave the comment anonymously just when you write your comment include your name. I know I have a few readers that do not have blogs.When I get back I will draw a winner. Good Luck and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
I am going to miss shopping on Black Friday :( This is a yearly tradition for me and my friends. We go to my MIL's and drop the kids off. Then at 10 pm Thanksgiving night we start. We first head to Gaffney to the Yellow Mall. We stay for a little while. Depends on the sales. Then head to the Waffle House. After that we go to Wal-Mart. My Wal-Mart ( not really mine but the one near the house) lets you go ahead and put most of the sale items in your buggy. You just can't check out till 5 am. I also take all my sale papers because they will match the prices. That way I can skip a few stores. Then we're off for some more shopping. Last year we went to Target, The Academy, Walgreen's, Westgate Mall, Goody's,Toys R Us, and a few more places . I ended up getting home at 4 pm the next day. My car was completely full that's why we had to come home. Oh well I'll have to wait till next year! Hope everyone finds some good deals!!!

Oh, I would love to be in NYC for Thanksgiving and see the Macy's parade in person. I will be watching it on tv though, and having a small meal for immediate family then a nap and ready to Black Friday to head out to Walmart and Kmart. Not sure where else though, will probably spend a good part of Turkey Day planning my BF strategies! Have a great trip!

I will miss having a coherent conversation at Thanksgiving lunch. I have to work Wednesday night and will be lucky to sleep 3 hours before lunch is ready. Oh well, at least I get out of cooking! ;-)

I still say I am SO jealous! We'll be at my parents for Thanksgiving absolutely stuffing ourselves with too much food!!!!

I'll be doing Black Friday though so I'll make sure and think of you at 4 am Friday morning :)

Cooking my first big meal for family... haven't done a turkey at our house since the first year we were married.. 16 years ago... wow.. hopefully I don't drop it out of the oven like I did the first year...cheap foil throw away pans are not made for roasting turkeys... just in case you were wondering... will miss Zoe in class Sunday... tell her I said Hey!

Summer Martin said...

Have fun in NY! We will be going to Jamie's sister's for lunch and then to my grandparents for dinner. We will be stuffed beyond belief. I will hopefully get a small nap before heading out with Summer and possibly Rhonda to shop!! This is the first year I have went shopping on black friday but I am looking forward to it:)

Oh man! You are so lucky! We are going to good ole' grandma's in Gray Court...nothing too thrilling, but it's our Thanksgiving Day tradition, so it feels just right for us!! Have fun in NYC.

Girl, you are CRAZIER than I am..lol.. ok, my thanksgiving will be like this... Running my boys to my sister house so they can go to GA w/ her to see my family and Ryan see his gf, then running around getting our turkey, ham and dressing that we have being made for us, off to Eric's mom house for lunch and look at all the sales ad to plan my friday out, then later on in the day Kmart, picking the boys up, my sister in law and niece and nephew spending the night then home to find time to get a nap in before we head off and hit the yellow mall at midnight then come back to shop in Spartanburg the rest of the morning.. Now hopefully I will be back home in bed before 4pm...I will miss going to GA and seeing my family... Hope you have a great time in NY,we will look for y'all on TV..

I am in the van, as I type this, on our way to Indiana to spend the holiday with family. :) I have never been to NYC...can you believe that? I would love to go sometime though. And Girl, you are wearing me out just reading about Black Friday....I'm not much of a shopper! :) Hope your Thanksgiving is blessed!!! xoxo Ang

Hope you guys are having fun in NYC! I can't believe you are commenting on blogs!! Where are you finding the time!

I hope the Prize is something really, really , really good! (no pressure);)

As for Thanksgiving, Brandon is helping with the turkeys at church @ 5 am. We are going to my parents sometime, just to visit. Then to Brandon's parents @ 2 to stuff our bellies as full as possible. I could lie and say I will take a nap but lets face it that never happens. I am too excited about the shopping!!! I am going with Summer and Rhonda(maybe) and Tracy(maybe). Soooooo, Soooo EXCITED!!!
