Forget everything I said yesterday

Remember yesterday when I was all.."O, I don't care about Black Friday, I could take it or leave it." We totally went Black Friday shopping and I braved all the crowds at 10am. At 10am everything we wanted was still there and I didn't feel deprived in the least.

We got up and headed to Robinson Town Center Mall but first breakfast. The Center Diner is pretty new to the area but we ate there the last time we were in town and it was delish then as well. I went with eggs, bacon and hash browns, Can we take a moment of silence for these hash browns? 

Sliced potato hash browns with a little onion? Happiness. They don't make them like this down south, They just don't. Kev got some crazy challah french toast and it was amazing too.

Then we headed over to the mall. I had my eye on some new booties and Macy's was having 25% off boots until 1pm. Also, they had a door buster for $35 gold earrings and I wanted to get some for my grandma.

Macy's was ridiculous, they just didn't have a good system for the retrieval of shoes. I waited close to 45 minutes to find someone to get the shoes from the back and check out. Conversely, there were 5 people with nothing to do over in the men's shoe section.

In the end I was pretty happy with my purchase. Kev wanted to get me better boots as a birthday present. I went with these Dolce Vita Prynce booties. I love them a lot.

Then I waited a really long time for someone to sell me these earrings. 10k for $35, I really can't complain, especially since all the other ones I've seen were well over $100.

Another great deal were these Yurbuds which were 50% off at Dick's Sporting Goods. My earbuds are constantly falling out of my ears and I've heard that these ones stay in pretty well. For $10 I'll give them a go.

Then we headed over to the Sephora at JC Penny. I heard about the $10 eye shadow palette they had on special and wanted to check it out. I got there exactly at 1pm and the last one juuuust sold out. It was OK, I got this Smashbox one instead. It was a little more expensive but I kinda love it. They also talked me into an eyeshadow primer.

Then it was time for some lunch. We went over to a new coal fired pizza place and they had a meatball lunch. Now, I love me a good meatball and it's pretty hard to find a good one in the south. 

It was soooo good. I only ate one of the meatballs and a piece of Kev's pizza. The thing that makes it different and delicious is hands down the sauce. The sauce is phenomenal. Only in the north can you get a bowl of sauce with a dollop of ricotta cheese.

On the way back from lunch Kev wanted to stop at a tool place and maybe get a weed whacker. Instead we found an assortment of tools that we never knew we needed. 

Work gloves, a storage container for small things, a hand held spotlight and this.

That would be a $4 machete. In true Back Friday fashion, we didn't know we really needed one but when offered a machete for $4?? How can you pass it up?

We own a machete now.

Did you go Black Friday Shopping?

What did you get?


  1. how can you pass anything up for $4? lol. we went to target when it opened and were in and out in 10 minutes (zero exaggeration) and i did the rest of the shopping online. those booties are so cute!

    1. Thanks! I'm so in love with these booties. This might be the year of the shoe for me.

  2. I mean you totally got some great buys! Love those booties!

  3. Love your blog!

    And I did not go black Friday shopping but I wish I could have. I went cyber Monday shopping instead. ;)

  4. hahaha, we needed to get out of the house for a bit. Kev already used his machete to cut the tree of the roof of the car.
