Black Friday Deals 2013

Are you feeling brave? Courageous? A little crazy?

Then perhaps you will indulge in a little of the madness we have all come to know as Black Friday. Just the name strikes fear in my heart! Personally, I have no intention of getting out in 20 degree weather to wait in line, get pushed around by people trying to get the deal of the year, waiting in checkout lines bigger than my hometown. I will most likely be nestled at home with a hot cup of coffee partaking in Black Friday online.

However, if you plan on going out in the wee hours of the night to get those deals, more power to you and God speed! Here are some deals to help you plan:

WalMart is promising more deals and you can even reserve your spot for a particular product with a wristband:

You can get deals today at Target:

Black Friday actually starts on Thursday (otherwise known to some as Thanksgiving) at some stores:

Whether you decide to brave the cold and the crowds or choose to stay home, warm and snuggly, I hope you get some great deals!

Be Thankful

Well, it's that time of the year again. The holiday season is upon us. Last Sunday our preacher had people in the congregation tell what they are thankful for. Listening to others tell their stories really touched my heart and made me realize that I have many, many things to be thankful for! My family is healthy. My kids do well in school and are not troublemakers. I have been working out and eating healthy over the past year, have lost about 50 lbs and am in a size 10. I have a good relationship with my husband. My job as a high school librarian is awesome and I love all my co-workers and students. I have a very nice house in a terrific place out in the country. I have four precious rottweilers who all think that I hung the moon (gotta love dogs!!!).

So many things to be thankful about! What are you thankful for?
