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!
