so...sleepy...must... shop...

So Kohl's opened at 4 am today, and my mom and I decided to go for it. So we set the clock for 3:15 (so we'd have time to run through the 24 hr starbucks on our way). We hopped out of bed in an adrenaline rush of the great deals we knew we'd find. We threw our clothes on and were all ready to head out, when we looked at the clocks in the kitchen and realized....It was really 2:15 and the clock in my mom's room was off by an hour...dang! We were already all awake! So, we took our time getting to Starbucks (surprisingly alot of crazy people in line at 3am!) and Sat in the car in the Kohl's parking lot watching the crazy people stand in the freezing cold, waiting to get in. It was fun, we did find some good deals (Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders for $1.99 each!). We waited in line for well over an hour to pay for our items!! But, of course they have cleverly put many displays of good deals all the way to the register, so we continued to shop all the way there.

We had fun...not sure we'll do it again next year. Happy "black friday"...anyone know why it's called that? Maybe because businesses get their finances out of the red and back into "black" due to all of the money they make today!

You girls are NUTS!!!! The only place I went today was Freddy's, to stock up on our years supply of socks. I got there at 10:30 and walked out at 11:00! You are right on the reason why they call it Black Friday.

the kicker is... said...

Yep, that's why they call it Black Friday - good guess!
Georgia and I did the same thing (shopping, that is... not the part about getting up earlier than we were supposed to ;) ). I got all my family shopping done! woot-woot!

I went to kohls at like noon. Saw a few things to try on, then saw the line to buy and put the things back. Went back 2 days later and bought the shirts. Only cost me $4 more dollars. I'm not sure that would've been worth the hour wait in line.

You are crazy! I've never done that day after thanksgiving shopping thing.
