Black Friday?

My good friend Tiffany agreed to be my partner in crime at 5:00 AM this morning outside of the Provo Robert's Crafts. The first 50 customers got a free $25 gift card! Since most of Provo is poor college students, we figured we needed to get there extra early to be in the first 50.


Here we are, #1 and #2 in line! I think it took at least another hour and a half for the line to get to 50 people.


Tiffany and her well-earned gift certificate!

Here's my loot! I was really into all the Halloween and Thanksgiving decor for some reason. We don't have a lot of decorations for this time of year, but I think that celebrating the little things in life like season changes and the first day of the month and silly holidays like Pirate Day and Pi Day makes everyday life new and exciting for your family.

At any rate, I bought more than I should have. I think sleep deprivation may have been a part of that decision making process.

This actually says "Give Thanks," although we do love us some Tom Hanks.


There were a few smaller things, but the minute they entered our home, they disappeared.

I think he knows something.

PS: Our lovely neighbors are hosting another party tonight. I'm really glad they're making a habit of this. And just to shake it up tonight, they've been honking their car horns and they've played "Gimme Gimme More" three times already. Love it.

Fall is my FAVORITE season! I love the colors and living in Southern Utah, I love to say GOODBYE to the hot sun for a few months :) I am in love with everything you got at Robert's! Good job!

PS - I am going to think up some perfectly legal, clever ways you can stop the rockin' block parties going on in your neighborhood :)
