Today is the infamous Black Friday and I'm a little sad. I'm sad because I have absolutely no money to go join all of the crazy people shopping today! (I know I heard you boo-hoo for me. lol ) Some of the sales today are good and some not so much but never-the-less the day after Thanksgiving Day shopping is/was a ritual for me. I would get up early and hit the stores at 6 am or earlier. For what? I have no idea. I just liked the idea of saying I beat the crowds. I liked watching the mothers fight over the latest toy and men rush to the electronics like little boys that have never grown up. I really got a kick out of this. I rarely bought gifts for anyone else but myself! LOL I'm a bargain shopper or just say shopper period. I buy gifts all year long, when I see the best price or best gift so I'm not stressed out on Birthdays or Christmas...the day after turkey is reserved for me.
But alas, I am sitting in Myrtle Beach not enjoying shopping. Why? Baby I or better yet, reality. The reality that I'm (as I said the other day) a tad low on extra money. I don't really need anything. There are many things I want, but nothing more than having my baby home. To that end, I'm missing 2007 Black Friday. In lieu of shopping (kind of sounds like a death doesn't it?) I think I'll help carve the meat off of the turkey and find some new recipes for leftovers. Don't be jealous about my exciting day, I'm including a recipe for you. But you have to tell me, did you find anything good while shopping today or this weekend?
