I am So excited for Thanksgiving this year....well anything tops last years Thanksgiving celebrated at Golden Coral (no offense to my readers who eat their Thanksgiving dinner there) but for me it was a very sad day! I cringed as I forked out $47.00 for the 3 of us to eat a Thanksgiving meal with no leftovers????
I will be blessed this year to sit around the table with Mr. Fisherman(he is off on Thanksgiving for the first time in years!!!!) my Bubba and my in laws. We normally eat around 3 or 4 but have pushed it up this year so Chris & Kyle can head back out to the deer stand for the evening hunt. As my boys head out to the field to try and bring home a buck with the rack the size of China, this little lady will be heading to sleepy land with a little help from Tylenol PM by 7pm...I must get plenty of rest before my Black Friday shopping marathon!
Then at 3am I will hop out of bed, grab my sales ads, my shopping spreadsheet and my travel mug full of peppermint mocha and head out with the masses to shop til I drop!!!

Old Navy opens at midnight
Khols opens at 3am
Belk's & Target open at 4am
Walmart starts at 5am

So have I convinced any of you to head out on Black Friday for the first time? Have any of my shopping tips helped you?
I hope so!!!
I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

I would love to go out for Black Friday shopping!! The prices in the US are already wayyyyyyyyy cheaper than in Canada - I am sure Black Friday would feel like being paid to shop!

I am so happy for you that you can have a Thanksgiving with your family at home! I hope you have a great time. :)

I found your tips very helpful! I am excited to shop. I have to admit something.... I have never shopped on Black Friday before! My hubby and stepdad always did it. They are so good at it and I usually had to work. So I hope my first experience goes well. :)

Again I hope you have a GREAT Thanksgiving with you family!

So, so glad you won't have to spend Thanksgiving at GC. That place is disgusting and I refuse to eat there at all. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family and rack up on some deals during BF.

I have a good friend whose family tradition is to eat Thanksgiving dinner at Golden Corral - and we always feel so bad for her. Doesn't that just sound like the saddest tradition?
