#sidebarlove {November}

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone and everyone has given thanks, the Christmas trees and decorations will be pulled out of the attic and the search will be made for all the perfect gifts.  But before we jump into Christmastime just yet, this month I asked my sponsors a few questions about Thanksgiving traditions.  

1.  What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition? 
2.  Do you go Black Friday shopping?  Why/why not? 

1. My favorite thing about Thanksgiving, although not a tradition really, is that my family pretty much stays casual or even in their PJs all day.  It’s great having a small family and no extended family in town sometimes, I don’t feel like I have to look perfect and fancy for anyone!
2.  I don’t usually venture out in to stores too much, but I have been known to do it from time to time if there’s an especially great deal on an item I am looking for.  I’ve mainly been one to do the online thing!  You can seriously find great deals online without even leaving the comfort of your home or your PJs.  No crowds!  I think I may go out this year mid-morning on Friday.  I assume most of the hardcore Black Friday shoppers will be fast asleep in their beds by then!

1.  I like the traditional foods we make every year!
2. I do not go shopping, its too much craziness and stress!  I'd rather go on my own time when it's less crowded!

1. does stuffing count as a tradition ? Because that is my favorite part of thanksgiving other than the family part :) Also, the past three years I have spent thanksgiving with Brad's (the boyfriend) family and every year they have a family football or soccer match (think F.R.I.E.N.D.S.) and this trophy is what is being played for besides bragging rights. Frightening I know.
2. have shopped in the past, but my sanity is starting to outweigh the idea of saving money, so many crays out there. I still can't believe people went out Thursday night !! 

1.Getting together with our families and just being together!
2. Absolutely not. This is the first year that I am not working retail (in a loooong time) and I have seen to many crazy people running after silly sales. My boyfriend is a store manager and had to work Thanksgiving night and Black Friday morning. It just isn't worth losing that family time to get a sale.
1. My favorite "tradition" is entirely too untraditional. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. Stuffing just doesn't do it for me...who ever created it and why is became a Thanksgiving staple is quite possibly beyond me. Taters and gravy are DELISH but that's about the only think I'd eat. So our tradition is a Mexian Thanksgiving. This year was fajitas that were quite amazing if I say so myself. Marinated over night...yes ma'am. 
2. Back home we would always go Black Friday shopping. This year was a little different because I didn't have my momma for my shopping buddy. Joe did however camp out at Best Buy yesterday afternoon for a new TV once I went to work. I'm still trying to get used to these 55 inches of LG LED...thats what she said right? Right? I do apologize this post is enhanced compliments of Dos XX.

1.  I love spending time with my family, cooking side dishes and pies, and hunting through the black Friday ads with my sister in law.
2. I have gone every year since I was pregnant with my little bear! The girls of the family usually go now, while the boys stay at my parent's house and entertain the kids. There are some steals out there! I always come out of it with a feeling of accomplishment knowing that the majority of my Christmas shopping is over and done with. But I'm not all hardcore about it or anything. We usually only pick 1 store and we are done. I did the mall one year and never again. Complete insanity!  Oh, and you could not pay me enough to ever walk into a Wal Mart on black Friday.

1. We have spent many, many years having Thanksgiving with our best family friends. We haven't been able to in recent years, but it has been my favorite part of Thanksgiving without a doubt.
2. I do not! I need to not spent much money in general (even on deals like on Black Friday), plus it is hard for me to do a lot of walking with my bum joints.
