Shop till ya drop!

So how was your holiday? Did you eat a lot of good food? Find a lot of great deals?

Our Thanksgiving was fine. TheCount plays in the Turkey Bowl every year so I was just glad he came home injury free :) We went to his best friend's house for our first meal and our follow up dinner was at his momma's house. At one house the food was good, at the other house it wasn't- we'll leave it at that. This was my first Thanksgiving without my family :( My dad's side decided to have the family reunion this Thanksgiving down in Myrtle Beach. I refuse to travel for holiday's, especially Thanksgiving, so we didn't go. The traffic just isn't worth it to me to be out on the road (my theory was right, my parents were stuck in 5 mph traffic for hours coming back home- and they came back on Saturday). I also am not the biggest fannof my daddy's side. They never seem to know what to say out of their mouths and I didn't want to stay in a house with all of them.

At midnight on Black Friday we went to the outlets. I find that I get much better deals in the store than I do online. I won't go through everything I got, but lets just say I went crazy, and TheCount let me. I was honestly waiting for him to tell me it was time to go. I don't know what was going on in that generous heart of his. Perhaps it was the fact that he just got a raise! The highlight of my little shopping trip was Ann Taylor Loft. I have recently fallen in love with this store, two weeks ago I got 2 skirts from Loft for $13 each. Well Friday I got (drumroll please).........a lovely $128 blazer for $17.92, a $79.50 dress for 11.93, and a black button down shirt for $11.93 (I don't feel like getting up to see the original cost). I walked out of that store grinning from ear to ear. You couldn't tell me I didn't accomplish greatness. I got some other stuff from Esprit, Radio Shack, and Sears. I had so much fun shopping with TheCount, which is quite rare. I will say, if he weren't with me, I would have gotten much more stuff, so I'm glad he was there to remind me of reality.

After a 3 hour nap, we got up at 9am to go buy a car! As much as I teased TheCount about how girly the Pacifica looks- the inside is oh so lovely. The black leather seats, all the leg room, oh how heavenly. Once I load the software for my new camera (told y'all I went crazy shopping) on my computer, I'll post pictures!

I didn't do any shopping this weekend. Tyler has a long list of small items like video games, books and movies and I just don't have the energy to click click click. I wish I could give him a gift card and say "have at it." His main gift is a laptop and I've laready ordered that. I'm glad the Count was feeling generous on black friday. That should call for yout o be nice to him for about a day or so. LOL
