Black Friday

Black Friday was the craziest morning I've ever had! Kyle decided Thanksgiving night he definitely wanted to go out for the first time in our marriage and catch a sale at four o'clock in the morning. I never miss a shopping trip so I had to join him.

Kyle has been dying for a new t.v. for quite some time now and figured "Black Friday" was the best day to get one. We went to Best Buy at 4:00am to join the crowds which wrapped all the way around the store which was due to open at 5:00am. I can't describe the ghetto scene we came upon!!! Everyone had eaten a chicken dinner Thanksgiving the night before and left most of it all over the sides of Best Buy. There were half eaten pies, trash, tents, chairs, blankets and so many more interesting items abandoned. It was so trashy!!!! Next year we're going to wait in a line in a nicer area where people throw their trash/Thanksgiving dinners into trash cans. Once inside Kyle ran around creating a super heavy pile of electronics which I had to claim as ours by standing next to the items (7 months prego and in my pajamas) with a body part touching them. Kyle insisted a body part must be touching the items or else I was not sufficiently claiming them to be ours. To top off our crazy morning...the t.v. wouldn't fit in our car so we drove home at five in the morning with the t.v. hanging out the back of the trunk at five miles an hour!!!!

It was so crazy but I am now a believer...I can't wait to join the madness next year!!!!
