Hopefully we will hook up with my cousins for a tasty meal or at least a visit.

We will probably make it to the Target down the road, but I think I'll be staying put for the most part. My DH went out last year at 4am to get a TV, it was funny, actually. Neither of our families are big shoppers and we all got a kick out of my DH, up at 4am standing in line to get a good deal. I keep trying to convince myself to get up and go to Kohl's. But really, I'm going to be full of turkey and wanting to stay home and decorate!
I do put things on a wish list for when he is in the zoo mob at the store though if he happens to pick them up.

I am going to go to a baby store, though, where they're having 10% off all furniture all day, and see what kinds of deals they have that day. Basically that would save on tax, but hey, it's extra money.
I will be doing some light decorating and some cleaning for my Blessingway which is Saturday! The idea of the shopping crowds makes me :
I might peek at Amazon sales and see if anything great is going on...
Oh yeah-- also housework and homework.
I also have a gc to Abby's Lane online and she usually has black Friday deals so I'll see if I can score anything good.
Dh works for Wal-Mart and has to go in from 4:30am to 3:00 pm, with only a half hour for lunch. I feel bad for people who work in retail at this time of year. I also feel especially bad for people who had to work at Wal-Mart, Boscov's and other retail shops on Thanksgiving day. That really ticks me off. :
ETA: My friend may be heading to Joann so I may even ask her to pick flannel up for me. That way I won't be heading anywhere other than the farm for milk.
My plans for the rest of the day are eating leftovers, cleaning and getting some Christmas decorations up.

First we are painting picture frames, after they dry they can embelish them
2nd i have birdfeeders to paint
I have 2 afghans im working on that are continual projects that i just want to get done this weekend. They have been dragging on for entirely too long.
I need to sort and box up my holiday helper assignements and get them to the PO this weekend.
I do not need to go to the store.
Not going this year though, I agree with some of the other posts. The deals really aren't that good this year. A few are decent deals but still not something that I'm going to fight the crowds for. The only good deals are things we don't need and aren't going to buy. There are some nice deals in the CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens ads but those are going on all weekend so I'm going later or on Saturday to get them. May check some online sites and see if I can find some good deals though. Other than that just cleaning house and decorating for Christmas.
I may go to Joann's for some fabric, but the parking there sucks so that's doubtful.
I really don't want to go out at all, but we'll see.

I am hosting a fajita and taco feast tonight for the visiting out of town relatives staying at my ILs. Get them out of the house and give my ILs a break. So I went to the local grocery at noon or so. It was dead. They said they were busy earlier but I was able to buy all the stuff to make for tonight. Off to get ready!
I had wanted to go ice skating, and I got to go twice! Once actually on Thursday at an open rink in downtown SLC. So fun! DP, DD and I had a great time!
Then Friday DD has a cold, so DP and I head out alone to the Olympic rink nearby and skated on some funky-hard ice. It was so smooth and strange - you could glide for ages! I loved seeing that winter Olympic space and thinking about the competitions that happened there. The rink advertises that it has the fastest ice on earth. Oh, there was a hockey game going on at the time as well (this place is HUGE!) and sheesh did they stink! Kinda gave me a better appreciation for S. Palin.
Then exiting the Olympic grounds we nearly got T-boned by a guy who ran the red. Mere inches to spare. He had to swerve HARD and I was braced for the crunching sound. Took a year off our lives. SLC seems to positively teeming with insane drivers.
Anyhow, as for Black Friday, I'll never shop again!
DS and I then went to a Christmas parade, got to wear some silly foam antlers and also got to go on a miniature horse carriage ride. It was the first ride of any kind that my son has enjoyed, and I fogot to bring my camera. : He loved it though! He was literally bouncing up and down on my lap the entire way. :
