Yay for Friday's off work!

Did anyone brave the Black Friday sales this morning? I did not get up at 4am to go shopping. After all that turkey yesterday there was no way that was happening. Every year I go shopping at 10am. I make a list of all the stuff I want and if they still have it at 10am then I buy it. If they don't I figure it probably wasn't meant to be. All the stuff on my list is stuff I want anyway, not stuff I need so I probably shouldn't be buying it anyway.

So I woke up and made France and Ron breakfast, cleaned up the kitchen a little bit, drank my tea, got ready and by 10am I was ready to go shopping after all the crowds were gone. I got almost everything I wanted too. I got some toys for Frances, one of those Keurig coffee makers for Ron and some sweaters for me. Unfortunately Walmart was out of the $5 Hotel for Dogs dvd that I really wanted. And I am being serious. I checked all the DVD shelves just to make sure one wasn't misplaced, but didn't find it :(.

Oh and I did go to Michael's (actually two) last night on my way home from my sister's house. The first one I went to was super packed and out of everything. But the second I went to wasn't out of anything. I bought five cricut cartridges that I can't wait to open up! One is Winter Wonderland and I already have some ideas.

Best of all I had off work today! And I was home when the postman left this wonderful package on my doorstep- the December kit from Simply Obsessed. I looked through it immediately and boy is this paper cutie! I am going to scrap some pics of Frances "decorating" the xmas tree.

Also- I posted a new sketch challenge over at A Walk Down Memory Lane. The sketch was created by the fabulous Lucy Chesna. Here is the sketch and my take on the sketch.

If you want to play along with the sketch challenge we would love to see your take on it. And if you upload your layouts to the DT blog you will be entered into a random drawing from the {AWDML} store.

Have a great weekend! I keep thinking today is Saturday because we were all home today, but lucky for me it's still only Friday.


  1. so wonderful that you got such great deal :D

  2. I love Keurig Brewer as well. Makes Great coffee - fast, easy and no mess :). But K-Cups for it not cheap. Actually 40c-50c per cup. Here's website K-Cup Coffee coupons if you interesting.
