Today is black friday which means tomorrow is broke saturday. - Ellen



Trial and error. That is the name of our game. Every year we learn something new, perfecting the process. I figure in 5 more years we will be certifiable black friday experts.

Matt spent the night in the Best Buy line with Perry. I think half of Springfield was in that line, it wrapped around the shopping center. He froze but it was worth it. He scored us an awesome t.v. for practically nothing.

Jen and I decided to try not going to sleep at all. We agreed that we won't be repeating that.

We went by Best Buy and Wal-Mart at 4:00 to check out the crowds before heading to Toys R Us. We waited in line for 20 min until they opened and then we were treated to a delightfully organized shopping experience. In and out in 19 minutes.

Then it was off to Target where we joined the line at Applebee's. By the time the store opened, the line was all the way back to the stoplight at Primrose. FYI- we were in line behind the mayor of Strafford so now we know a lot about that great town.

Joanne's and Mardel completed our spree. We were home by 7:45am. So much fun, this really is my favorite morning of the year.

Sky- I hope you're having as much fun as me!

Rachel you should have asked me for tips on staying up all night! I got out with my mom, sister and Bryan around 4:15 and we were home by 7:45 also. What a productive morning!
