hi, i'm ilene. and i'm a black friday shopper.


sometimes you have to do something spontaneous and crazy.

[we love our new hats we found during our black friday shopping!
this picture was taken at the end of the day. notice how tired my eyes look. so worth it, though.]

which is what the little sister and i did yesterday morning...say around, 4am. we got up and got ready to attack the crazy sales at everywhere and anywhere. believe it or not, we didn't have a hard time getting up at all. we were both excited and ready - though we were excited for two different reasons.

i'm just one of those crazy shoppers that likes to go out on black friday (i get it from my mom) because i like to find the cheaper deals and start my christmas shopping earlier than later. i'm also a sucker for DVDs and wal-mart and target have the best deals for those. as for ashley, she was excited about her beloved beiber's acoustic album, released only at wal-mart on black friday. (smart marketing, i personally think). 

so with my coffee, we ran out the door to start a long crazy day of hunting for the best deals. our parents headed out in a seperate car, stalking a different batch of stores - but then met up later at home for lunch (thanksgiving leftovers, of course!) and cat naps. once we all recharged, we headed out the door for a trip to savannah's sea of malls and shops. 


there have been some years we found amazing deals, other times none at all. but as it being one of holiday traditions to just check out what's out there and being with all the other crazy shoppers, it was fun even if we weren't to find anything at all.


call us weird, but it's a family thing.


[happy weekend, friend!]

  7. Those pics are so cute!
    There was nothing I could do to drag my sisters out for Black Friday shopping this year. I think they'd need a little more incentive than JB these days :-)
    Glad you got some good deals!
    I did all my BF shopping online this year. Waiting for my purchases to arrive may kill me!
