Beloved Black Friday

Anyone who knows me would probably agree that to say I am a shopaholic is a bit of an understatement.  It's not my best trait, but I most likely do have a slight shopping addiction.  Ever seen the movie, "Confessions of a Shopaholic?" - the main character is eerily similar to me, complete with the red hair & all.  And of course, since having my daughter this past July, my love of shopping at Forever 21 for printed sweaters & skinny jeans is now shared with one for bows & striped onsies at Old Navy or Baby Gap.

So for those reasons, among many others, Black Friday definitely ranks in one of my favorite days of the year.  Along with my mom and sister, I have been attending the festivities for at least four years now.  Other than the obvious bargains, doorbusters and more ... I thoroughly enjoy the excitement of the day, including the running through stores, hunting for special finds, and even the people watching everywhere we go.  We have been known to start our adventure just past midnight Thanksgiving evening and last until late that night.

This year brought a challenge as sleep is currently at quite the premium for me, yet with Waverly's fashion needs and my own ... It wasn't an option to sit this one out (And obviously, I didn't want to!). So we set our alarms for midnight once again, and set out for Kohl's, Macy's, and Old Navy.  Waverly even joined in for the fun, during Round Two at Target, TJ Maxx, and Micheals.  Here are the best deals we scored throughout the day .......

Baby Gap!!!  Well actually, the sale at Baby Gap started on Tuesday, so we knocked this one out before we even started cooking the Thanksgiving turkey.  Tons of deals on baby girl clothes I drool over but would never pay full price!


Kohls!!!  Always our first stop; this year, I went straight to the baby department.  Waverly is definitely at that age that she is getting more curious with her toys by the day, so Santa will be bringing lots of Fisher Price - at a discount.

Micheals!  So this one was for me ... in an effort to deck the halls in my home and create the festive Christmas atmosphere.  Like usual, Micheals is my go-to for anything decorative, and with amazing deals that continue past Black Friday, I always end up with something.

And one picture of Waverly from the day ... a memorable day for any budding shopper.  It was also the first day Waverly went out in her PJs & and she looked quite cute in them!
