Happy day-after-Thanksgiving, friends!
Happy Black Friday, friends?
If no one has ever wished you a "Happy Black Friday" before, well, there you go.
I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was as lovely as ever. Our day was fabulous. I didn't over- or undercook the turkey and my mashed potatoes were lumpy on purpose. Overall, I'd say it was a success.
And now it's Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving. This year, November 29.
Forget about shopping. This is the day I officially allow myself to fully embrace the Christmas spirit.
Even though I've been listening to Christmas music since November 1, I don't allow myself to put up any decorations until the day after Thanksgiving. I know, I know, with Thanksgiving falling so late this year it seems like I should have decorated earlier to enjoy the decorations a little longer. And any GOOD blogger has been in Christmas mode for at least two weeks already. But I just cannot. Maybe one day when the blogging insanity has finally and wholly sucked me in will I start Christmassing it up around here in mid-November, but this year is not that year.
And so, today we decorate! Think I can get the hubster up on the roof this weekend to hang some lights?
(Answer: in my dreams.)
In the spirit of the letting myself finally get into all things Christmas and jolly, I present this week's Five Friday Faves--It Can Finally Be Christmas edition. I'll be sharing my favorite Christmas-related pins from the Pinterestsphere this week. Please remember to pin from the sources that I've provided for you under the image, and have a great weekend!
So, anyone go shopping today? Last night? Early this morning? Get any good deals?
**Psst: I didn't do too much shopping today, but if you are, my shop on Etsy is having a sale! 10% off with the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY, which is valid today and tomorrow. I'm only sharing this code on my blog. Woo hoo, pretties for everyone!**
