It’s Black Friday, Of Course I Woke Up Hungry

 

Happy Friday! How was your Thanksgiving?

It doesn’t feel like Friday, right? Nor does it feel like the color black.

I don’t know what it feels like, I just know that as predicted,  I have woken up hungry.

That would be my loaded up plate from last night. You can be sure I went back for seconds, and maybe thirds.

Was I overly stuffed? Well, I said to my mother, and I quote, “I would unbutton my pants but it seems I am wearing leggings.”

Today is a new day. As I said on Tuesday, PROCEED AS USUAL.

Do not let what you overconsumed yesterday consume you.

Sure, I feel a bit bloated, how could I not? I don’t normally eat so much nor do I often eat the foods I ate last night. And who knows, perhaps the abundance of starch, carbs and oil will fuel me nicely for this morning’s run.

Regardless,  it’s all good. It was a wonderful meal which only happens once a year.

So. Black Friday. Means very little in this Hanukkah house. All of our shopping is done.

In order to stay in the festive spirit, I may need to Black Friday myself on over to a store that sells the Essie Luxeffects sparkly polishes. I actually think they are considered a top coat.

I spotted them the other day in Bed, Bath and Beyond and the nail salon had a few of the shades on hand as well.

I don’t often purchase my own nail polishes but I really want the goldish sparkle (I believe it is called Sparkle On Top) and a few others. I even spotted some fun new dark red sparkly colors for the toes.

I also came across this cast iron skillet complete with a cookie mix for making your own skillet cookie. Such a cute gift.

I don’t need the cookie mix since I am a cookie snob and only bake from scratch but this is totally fun and totally perfect for making the skillet cookie recipe that I mentioned last week.

The little boy asked if we could partake in the shopping madness so maybe we will.

Although I doubt he will want to go shopping for nail polish and cookie pans.

I just received an email from the Gap regarding 50% off everything (enter code BLKFRIDAY) so please excuse me while I Black Friday from the comforts of my home.

I will try and pop in over the weekend but between Hanukkah parties and other fun things, I don’t know that I will get a chance.

I do update on Instagram though, so follow along. You certainly don’t want to miss a Red Mango parfait or anything important like that now, do you?

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

    Love that first paragraph! I wish people wouldn’t beat themselves up over one night of the year! Indulge, eat all the pie and then wake up the next day and get back on track. One night doesn’t ruin everything! Then again we don’t have Thanksgiving so I had a salad for dinner last night haha

    Remember how we used to love to shop all day- are we getting old now that we rather shop online???

      Had we only ever shopped online though we would have missed out on so many fun experiences – like the Sa-Hara

    Seriously loving your views on Thanksgiving dinner, girl! For something that only happens once a year, why not enjoy it to the fullest rather than feel guilty about it? That just defeats the whole purpose! And it’s so refreshing to hear that you’ll just be going back to life as normal — no cleanses or extremes. I’ll gladly take any leftovers off your hands though 😀

      You will never see me do a cleanse. I need to eat and chew and I cannot ever be hungry lol.

    Leggings are the best Thanksgiving legwear 😉 haha. I didn’t eat WAY too much for Thanksgiving, but definitely a little more than usual!

    Our meal was awesome yesterday and I actually didn’t really overeat – totally woke up hungry today and excited for leftovers – we have a TON!! Might hit up REI later, but not really doing much in the way of shopping.
