Today I Shopped 'Til I Dropped.

Literally.  Ash and I left the house this morning around 10am and didn't get home until 6:30pm.  We didn't stand in any horribly long lines and we didn't fight with anyone for merchandise.  No one was rude.  It was a very pleasant experience.  I think the longest line I stood in was at Joann Fabrics (they only had two checkers) and the place most packed with people was definitely ToysRUs.  It was pretty funny to walk into Target at 5pm and see only 4 carts left.  And Ash was a wonderful shopping companion.  It was a lot of fun.  A bit long, but I'm pretty much done with Christmas shopping.  Yay! 

First Icee
(not like I think about taking pictures while i'm shopping, but near the end of our trip i gave in to ash's request for a snack.  she wanted an icee, even though she'd never had one before, and they did sound pretty good to me so we each got one.  and since it was her first icee, i pulled out my camera and snapped a pic.  she enjoyed it but that red dye gets her soooooooo hyper!!!!  next time she's getting blue.)

You brave, brave lady. I heard about fist fights, gun shots, and unruly arguments going on all over the country. NO thank you.
I'll probably join in on cyber Monday. After the tree is decorated :) Can't wait!!

This reminds me of when my mom used to take me shopping.

I can't believe she hung tough all day long. Actually, I can't believe YOU did!

Bravo for being done!

Ugh!! I dislike Good Friday shopping and only went because my Daughter had come to stay all night and shop with me.

Do you know.. I didn't buy a thing.

I had no idea that red dye can make kids hyper.... I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks

I wonder what's the effect of blue dye. Ash looks like she is concentrating hard on her icee.
