The Momz is gone on her annual Christmas shopping trip! Yes, she is one of those crazy people that is out shopping on Black Friday! BUT, Momz goes with her two sisters and two friends and they don’t go because it’s Black Friday, they just go because it’s a convenient time since everyone can get work off.
Momz really looks forward to this trip every year. It’s not just the shopping, it’s the “girl time“. They don’t go just for the sales (though it’s still nice to get those bargains), and they don’t even leave early on Friday morning! They’re leaving at 8:00 and then they drive two hours to a good shopping place, stop for breakfast along the way, and spend the night at a motel. There’s lots of eating, drinking, and just fun time with the girls. This year they’re especially excited because they have a “suite” for a motel room. Wow, really living it up this year, Momz!
Momz especially needs the escape right now, because she’s worried about my sissie Sheba. If you missed Sheba’s update, you can read it by clicking here. We know people are super busy on Thanksgiving so might have missed that post. There’s also a really sweet photo of me and Sheba, so you might want to check it out!
So we dogs and Samantha will be left in the capable hands of the Dadz. Dadz will be the one that gives us our play time (which he often does on weekends anyway), and dealing with all of our silliness:
The Momz tried to get around and say Happy Thanksgiving to all our blog friends, but with family time (they went to her niece’s for Thanksgiving dinner), she knows she didn’t make it to everyone, and she’ll be MIA for a couple of days. She’ll do her best to catch up with everyone when she gets back. So have a great weekend, we hope lots of you get a long one to enjoy. And for any other crazy people that are out Black Friday shopping….good luck! Oh, and Momz, don’t forget to buy us lots of stuff!

I hope you had fun shopping. Love the action shots!
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and wonderful time shopping. I don’t mind shopping with my sister in NH on black Friday, it’s way better than shopping down here. You couldn’t pay me to go near a store in CT!
We had so much fun shopping! We sometimes discuss going some place like Holyoke, Mass. for shopping…but we definitely like to stick to places that are quieter. Plus we love our no sales tax state! 🙂

Thank you, Julie! Your prayers are much appreciated. And I did have fun!!

Hope your Momz is enjoying her trip!! I refuse to go shopping anywhere other than local or online between Black Friday and the day after Valentine’s Day. And I don’t normally shop on Thanksgiving, but this year we had dinner at a winery and resort and I bought two bottles of wine and a small jar of pecan honey butter in their gift shop.
I had a great trip, thank you! I’m always buying things like socks, underwear, and shoes when I’m Christmas shopping because I rarely go shopping other than this trip (we girls often do one other day trip in the spring though)!
We don’t have a lot of good options for local shopping, but I do try to get some things that way, as well as online.
I do love small gift shops at places like your winery…if I’m someplace like that I can’t usually help myself from buying stuff!

I usually always go shopping on Black Friday. It is my favorite day to shop. We used to get up at 4:30 and hit the stores. It isn’t as exciting since stores open on Thanksgiving, but I still love it. This year, we had Thanksgiving dinner at my son’s house because daughter-in-law had to work yesterday. I’ll have to catch up on sales tomorrow.
I love that it’s not just the Black Friday sales that are good, but they usually continue right through Saturday. I don’t think I would ever go on Thanksgiving, but I guess a lot of people do now!

We hope your mom has fun shopping…but we think you guys are the ones having the real fun!
Aaack! Sheba has crazy face! Hope you mom enjoyed the “shopping” trip with the ladies. Sounds like it’s a fun trip with a bit of shopping on the side.
Yep, that’s about right. And I hear they sometimes buy stuff for themselves too…can you imagine? 🙂

Good luck shopping, hope you get all your stuff and have a fun day. I normally go each year but this year I think we are just doing to do some light shopping and do lunch. Have a great weekend.
Hope you had a fun day and a great weekend too! We had an awesome trip.
Holidays are for family and friends. We are all a bit slow or taking time away from our computer activities and that is alright. Have fun with your dad!
