Happy Black Friday! Yes, Wade and I were among those crazy shoppers out and about during the wee hours of the morning. We left home at approximately 2:45 a.m. to hit up Kohls and Wal-Mart. Two years ago, I randomly woke up a little before 5 and decided to go purchase two items at Wal-Mart. Crazy spur of the moment decision, I know…but I got what I wanted and I never waited in line. So when Wade and I started discussing the thought of Black Friday shopping, he voiced is skepticism of seeing lines of people at Wal-Mart at 4am. After a quick status update on facebook, we were quickly told that ‘YES’ there are crazy lines at 4am. Well, we braved it anyways and were still surprised by the insane amount of people standing outside Kohls…we really didn’t think Kohls would be “the place to be.” Obviously, we were wrong.
We only had to wait in line for 20 minutes or so. When we entered the store, the adreline started to rush. We quickly walked (we were so NOT running) to the back of the store to retrieve our foam matress we wanted so badly. The nervousness increased as everyone in the store seemed to be headed the same direction. To our surprise, we passed them and continued a few more feet on our own to the item on our purchase list. However, I was curious. “What on earth were all those crazy women after?!” Mobs of women hurled over boxes of bedding???? Strange if you ask me. When I looked closer I saw that it was actually a $150 down comforter for $30. Yes, $30. “I’ve always wanted one of those!” I announced to Wade. So he forced himself through the crowd and with less than 10 comforters left, he grabbed the exact color and size that matched our current bedding. We ended up saving more money at Kohls than we actually spent! Isn’t that just madness?!
Overall, it was a good experience for us. We’ll probably do it every year now!
Upon our return home, we cleaned house, put up and decorated the Christmas tree (and our 5 lonely Christmas decorations), and watched Alabama almost blow their chance at a National Championship. Talk about a stress-filled day! Surprisingly enough, I’ve made it the whole day without a nap and am now being productive with photography! I’m very proud of myself actually.
So while I’m being productive, I’d like to share South Shelby senior, Darcy Long. Darcy and I met up on a very cold and windy morning here in Macon, MO. We braved the unusual weather and managed to have a really great session! Despite the below average temperatures and the ridiculous wind, we shared some stories and laughs and captured some amazing photos of Darcy. She looks beautiful and I am blessed that she chose me to help capture these moments in her life.
