Thanksgiving & Black Friday

Hosting Thanksgiving this year was actually kind of fun and not as stressful as I thought it would be. Then again my husband is the one that cooked the Turkey and the Yams. The night before I made the cranberry sauce, baked mini apple pies, cut all the carrots, and dipped the marshmallows. We tag teamed on the mashed potatoes and my sister-in-law made the Ham. We had a small gathering of people which was perfect for our first time.
So let me tell you about Black Friday. I had NO idea that so many stores were opening at MIDNIGHT Thanksgiving night. I don't know where I have been that I missed that but as soon as I realized it I had to pump myself up to make sure I didn't fall asleep. I really wanted to be one of the "first 100" in line at H&M but couldn't believe how many people were already there at 11:15pm. I'm pretty sure we were #200 in line. Anyway, we waited anyway because I knew exactly what I wanted. I found all my items in about 30 minutes and then spent an hour in line to pay! My husband and I came to the conclusion that younger people, like teenagers, are more likely to stay up late, rather than get up early for doorbuster's. It kind of sucked, I was really disappointed I invested so much time at one store. We went home right after that and then I woke up the next morning at 6:00am to hit up Target, Old Navy and Bed Bath and Beyond.....all of which were completely empty! I seriously didn't wait in a single line.
 My husbands family has a tradition of making Turkey Tacos the day after Thanksgiving and since only his dad and sister live the closest to us, we took all our leftovers there, ate everything (except turkey) for lunch and then my sister-in-law and I made the Turkey Tacos for dinner.....soooo..... delicious! You should try it next year. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
