Black Friday Savings!!

Back again lovely readers! I know its been a while, but I just HAD to post the great deals I got this year for Black Friday shopping! I should let you all know that Black Friday is one of my most favorite days of the year. This year we woke up bright and early at 330, headed out about 430 and arrived at our first destination before 5 am. Spent 5 am-1 pm shopping, took an hour break and headed out again to a couple more stores. All in all spent about 12 hours shopping by the time we were done for the day. I ended up falling right asleep at about 9:15 pm that night, but it was so worth it! I'm sure I walked off all of the calories I ate for Thanksgiving dinner too! Now for the deals:

I was also able to get an Adobe Photoshop Book from Borders for $19.98 that was regularly $39.99 thanks to the 50% coupon!! Stood in line there 45 minutes, but it was worth it!!

Finally, I have needed to get a wreath for my door for the last few years, but am too cheap to fork out the $25-50 for them so I decided to go to JoAnn's Fabric and get stuff to make my own. The wreath and all the decorations were 60% off so I only spent $9.99 including tax and was able to MAKE this:
Not too shabby in my opinion and I saved at least $15!!!

So all in all my Black Friday was a very successful one. Some of the items bought were gifts for family and some were gifts to myself. I probably spent more than I should have, but I saved more than I spent so it's all good!

NICE JOB PEOPLE MAG!!!! Seriously, how has this man NOT held this title before. Do you SEE those ABS!!!I am very happy with this years choice! I will most definitely be buying this issue!!

Here are a couple of other nominees for future years...if only I had a vote:

Chris Pine

Best known for his role in the recent "Star Trek" movie and the new movie "Unstoppable" with Denzel Washington, this guy is seriously adorable! LOVE those baby blues!! I am sure he will be around for a long time!!

D.J. Cotrona

Apparently he has been in a few movies, including "Dear John", but I never noticed him until I saw him on "Detroit 1-8-7". That is one of my new favorite shows, and if you haven't seen it yet, I recommend it. If you don't like it, just fast forward to the parts with him in it!!

So what do you think? Are you happy with this years choice of Ryan Reynolds? Who would you like to see named "Sexiest Man Alive"??

YouTube Tuesday!!

I found this video on Facebook today. If I had seen this last week it would have totally been the YouTube Tuesday pick, but it is still awesome so that is why I am posting it now. Whoever owns this house is seriously AWESOME. They may have a lot of time on their hands, but still pretty amazing!!! After checking it out on YouTube, I found a few other songs that they choreographed the lights too also. Seriously love it! I can't wait to see what they do for Christmas!
