If you know me, you know that I’m a tough girl. I’m not intimidated by much. I don’t deal with peer pressure and wouldn’t back down to a fight. I’m pretty tough. With one exception…I have major panic attacks and anxiety when it comes to mass chaos shopping.
Don’t invite me to a sample sale, a clearance sale, any sale where stampeding, line-waiting and pushing is involved. I need a brown paper bag to breathe into just thinking about it. I love shopping. Love it. But I need to shop on a Tuesday morning when the mall is empty…I need to look at the nice folded piles of clothes at the front of JCrew and not dig through giant bins with 50 other ladies…so needless to say, Black Friday scares me to death. The word doorbusters makes me shutter. So, what was I doing out on Black Friday? I was sipping coffee and watching the madness from afar. I enjoy watching the madness…especially with my family.
Love my girls!
She wouldn’t look at me…but she was super excited to be spending the day with Uncle Seanie.
What do you do when you have a famous family member? When you’re in the company of a celebrity? You go to Costco and ride around on the merchandise…we’re practically the Kardashians over here. Us and our glamours life.
Kensington decided to nap half-way through our Costco run.
And during dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, she played a puzzle game while resting against her uncle. (I guess Black Friday wears her out too!)
After dinner, we checked out the lights in town.
Then we went and looked at Santa and his elf.
By the end of Black Friday, the kids were tired (and so was I!). All of the people-watching was exhausting :).
I’m home now…online shopping. It’s crazy out there!
PS: See how Uncle Seanie inspired my dinner tonight. 🙂
