Blah Yadda Yadda

So, it's Monday. I feel like there are a million things that I want to tell you so this might be a bit ramble-y. I swear to do a real, non-random post this week. Promise. I think.

First up, I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Holidays around here aren't the same without my mom, but it was nice all the same.


Next, have I mentioned that I started working a part-time job? Because I didn't see anything on the "real job" hunt happening before Christmas, I decided to go back to a store I worked at all through college. I don't want to put it out here and let myself be google-able - so let's just say it's a store that is at most of the malls in the country and it sells lotions and shower gels and perfumes. I think you can figure it out from there... I think.

So I worked on Black Friday, as most retail people do. I arrived at the mall at 4:25 AM and we opened at 5 AM. I literally parked myself in front of a cash register for 5 hours without moving... in our small mall, this store is definitely the busiest (with the exception of maybe Target). And after a break I worked until 4 pm. Needless to say, I think I'm still catching up on sleep. It was an exhausting weekend.


Before I forget, I posted over at Chic Critique about the Cyber Monday deals I'm taking advantage of at Sephora. Have you done some Cyber Monday shopping? I have restrained myself, and it's already 7:30 AM. Go willpower (for now, at least!).


So, did any of you get any amazing black friday deals? Since I didn't do any shopping, I know I didn't - but I'd love to know what I missed out on. Do spill, please?


Ok, I'm too wound up to write anything interesting.... are you shopping Cyber Monday? I wanna know what you buy! (So I can buy one too....)

No shopping for me today. I'm struggling to think of something that I want for Christmas from my husband. I'm at a loss.

I really wanted a 32 inch TV for $250 but I'm not a morning person. I couldn't even bribe my mom to go and take my credit card. She used to love going shopping on Black Friday but now she does it online. Guess I'll have to pay $300 to get one.

I bought a few sweaters from Victoria Secret... they're all $39 or below, and with the code SCARF09 you get a free scarf, AND on top of that with the code VSSAVE20 you get 20% off your entire purchase!!
Ann Taylor also has 40% off entire site! yes yes yes!

congrats on the PT job!
i didn't do alot of black friday shopping - mostly online. but from what i could tell, unless you were in the market for a tv or computer, you didn't miss too much.
