Happy Thanksgiving! And don’t get hurt on Black Friday.

First and foremost, I would like to wish everyone who reads my blog a very Happy and yummy Thanksgiving! As I mentioned before on this blog, it is truly one of my favorite days of the year and I am looking forward to a long day of cooking at my parent’s house, a delicious dinner and a lot of good family time.

And then…. It’s Black Friday!

Alright, we really take Black Friday seriously. And when I say seriously, I don’t mean we go to the stores at 7AM looking for deals. I mean, walkie-talkies, maps, price comparison charts and of course, I pack lunches and snacks for all! Every year, my mother and I venture into the sea of crazy deal-seeking shoppers. Sometimes, it’s just the thrill of hunting down the best price not necessarily purchasing those gifts.

Of course, Black Friday took on a new meaning last year and will henceforth be known in my house as “Black and Blue Friday.” A displaced hip check from an eager shopping waiting in line behind me resulted in quite the bruised ankle (and ego) at our second destination. Black Friday can be dangerous!

Needless to say, I am going again this year. I will also be packing our usual snacking and lunch in order to keep us fueled throughout the long shopping day. It’s always best to pack something easy to eat on the go. See you in December!
