Family Black Friday

Again, so late sharing my holiday happenings.

After consuming two entire Thanksgiving meals and staying up way too late going through ads and plotting our shopping adventure, our Black Friday started at 3:30 a.m.

Eryn always crashes on my living room floor for the late-night plotting and early-morning wakeup. We picked up Mom and Dad at 4:30 a.m. and headed straight for the Tigard Fred Meyer.

In line, awaiting the 5 a.m. opening, donning non-optional headgear:
After grabbing some deals, including fleece blankets for the Caring Closet and half-priced socks (duh!), and some free doughnut holes, we made our way to JCPenney for their 6 a.m. opening. There was a mad rush up the escalator for $8 appliances. Eryn cut in line and got shopping raged. The woman told Eryn that she "belonged at Wal-Mart" - HA!
Then to Beaverton Bi-Mart, though I was so excited that I forgot to snap a pre-dawn pic. Next up, nearby Target.
Target is usually a mad house, but since they opened Thanksgiving night, the store was a total ghost town. Honestly, it was kinda lame.

Beaverton Home Depot for door-buster poinsettias and more doughnut holes!
After a quick stop at Michael's, we braved Washington Square. First order of business for me was a Pumpkin Smash smoothie from Jamba Juice. I'd spent the entire Pumpkin Smash season on a sugar-restricted diet, and I'd been fantasizing about that sugary goodness the whole time. YUM!
By then, the sun was up and I we were in full shopping mode. The rest of the day is a blur... and I was obviously too exhausted to take any more pictures.

After fueling, more shopping and a nap, it was game time - Tigard football in the quarterfinals at Hillsboro Stadium. Can't wait for tomorrow's semifinals at JELD-WEN Field!! Go Tigers :)
