Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend, a lovely Thanksgiving (if you’re here in the USA), and enjoyed some nice retail therapy, whether online or in stores.
Personally, this weekend was somehow not long enough for me!
I know, that seems ridiculous as I had Thursday, Friday, the weekend AND Monday off, but I guess I’ve just been doing too much running around to get much rest in which is fine by me, though my body is complaining a bit!
Thanksgiving was fantastic for me, having been the first time that I can remember since I lived at home that I actually didn’t drive all over the place to several Thanksgiving celebrations, but I wasn’t having it this year and it was seriously nice to just stay home and relax…and you know, eat pie.
It seemed really short-lived, though, as you all might know, I was at the local mall at nearly 2:30 AM! And it was CRAWLING with people! I was, like WTF?!
I am someone who really never experienced the madness of Black Friday until I was 20 and even then, I still didn’t go to the places I knew would be seriously flooded so this was the first time I’d actually seen a really packed shopping area in the wee hours of the early morning, mind you, so I was a bit blown away.
Take A Look For Yourself:
Sorry for the crappy quality, but you can see it’s quite busy at only 3 AM!
You see, the mall had totally given me the slip. I checked opening times and Sephora’s recording said they opened at 5 AM so I had planned to go wait in line around 3 and wait until 5 AM, but when I arrived, I saw a huge flood of people already going in and out of the mall so I’m assuming they gave incorrect hours to intentionally prevent mobs and riots of people from all showing up at once, but I am pretty sure they actually opened at midnight which is just insane.
Anyhow. Saturday was spent shopping as well, but less so as shops were still really packed. The after – black friday line at Best Buy (electronics store) was so long, it weaved throughout the store and they had an employee with a sign that said “End of Line Starts Here” to let customers know because there were literally people everywhere. There’s nothing I want badly enough to stand in that line!
Sunday and Monday I spent getting a bit of rest in, but still had to catch up on laundry and things.
-Sigh- So, alas, I’m still pretty tired, but had a nice holiday weekend anyway!
Oh! Also, I’m debating between buying a treadmill or getting a gym membership as I’d like to run more regularly, but I live in a bad neighborhood so any advice is much welcome on which is the better path to take!
How was your holiday, weekend, etc?
Did you get in any shopping online or in stores?
