Well, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a day full of great food, family, & football. We certainly had a nice relaxing day and while I definitely missed being at my grandma's house with over 30 people and wonderful food, it was great to just relax and enjoy some time with the in-laws. Holidays are definitely tough whenever you first get married, and I'm assuming they really don't get much easier...especially when one family lives far away from another. Oh well, soon my in-laws will be moving back home to Missouri and we won't have this long distance issue to deal with. At least then I won't be 12 hours away from my family on Thanksgiving.
So we're certainly not get up in the middle of the night, sit in the parking lot until doors open, and race inside for a special gift kind of Black Friday shoppers. However, growing up we always ended up at the mall during the later afternoon hours when all of the crazies had left for the day. We normally still got some pretty good deals and it was always nice to get out of the house for awhile. Today will be no different. We're headed to one of my favorite malls up here in Michigan and hopefully Hubby & I will be able to get some Christmas shopping accomplished. I'll probably even ditch him for awhile to get some of his presents taken care of. This evening we're headed to the Fox Theatre in Detroit to see the musical White Christmas...I'm really excited and it should be a great day! Tomorrow is our last day here and we'll probably spend most of our time just relaxing and putting up Christmas decorations! I just love decorating for Christmas!
