weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans – Thanksgiving/Black Friday Style

Four day weekends are good for the soul, shouldn’t they happen more often?! Wednesday I tried out Yo Mama’s with my coworkers. Nothing better than hand cut, homemade fries!

Wednesday afternoon I helped my MIL prep some of the food for Thursday. Chris and I stopped by to check out Crazy Horse on our way home. We were very impressed and we will most certainly be back soon! My new favorite spot for sure!!! They had a great selection of craft beer, most of the draughts being local. We only grabbed some apps off the bar menu, but they have a top notch menu for their restaurant and I can’t wait to try their filet!

Magic indeed…

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebrating with our family. We were at Chris’s parents house for lunch where there were 20 family members and then at my mom’s house where it was just Chris and I and my mom and step dad….with my three step sisters coming a little later. It was fabulous!

Once the last dish was cleaned and put away, my mom and I headed out for our annual Black Friday shopping marathon!!! We hit a new record for us and shopped for over 21 hours straight!!! My mom finished up all of her Christmas shopping and got a few things for herself. I started my Christmas shopping and scored a few great things for myself as well. The highlight being Dolce Vita booties from Nordstrom Rack for under $40 similar to these!!!!! I am obsessed!

Sadly, that shirt ended up having a black spot on the sleeve and I didn’t get it.

I am in love with theΒ Democracy skinny jeans that I scored for $39. They are on sale today still. They were so comfortable!!! And the waste band design really helps them stay up and in place.

Saturday I watched my Tide roll over Auburn. It was a great game and both teams played well. Roll Tide!!! Now weΒ will be taking on the Florida Gators for the SEC Championship!

Linking up with Biana. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving!!! What are you scooping up this Cyber Monday?

    Your black friday shopping sounds so fun! I don’t normally participate, but if I had a shopping partner and made it into something fun, I might reconsider! Happy belated thanksgiving, friend!

    Absolutely adore that selfie of you and your mama! Two beautiful marathon shopping gals right there! And oh do I love those booties you scored! Perfection and I love that you send Laura outfit pictures in the mirror, I do the same thing with my friend Tami. Happy cyber Monday if you’re not all shopped out and made this week be a glorious one for you! I’m still in mourning because my Irish lost but I’m going to be a Crimson Tide girl for the rest of the season, LOL

    wow 21 hours!!!! I’m seriously impressed! I did all of my black friday shopping online and am all done Christmas shopping. Had a lot of fun shopping in my pj’s in bed! Sounds like you had a great 4 day weekend. Wish they could all be like that.

  • Reply Marie November 30, 2015 at 9:24 am

    Wow that is alot of shopping! That is my kind of gal! Love those booties! They are perfect!!

    21 hours?! I’d die!! Sounds like so much fun though!

  • Reply Tracie November 30, 2015 at 10:30 am

    I can’t even imagine 21 hours. I would die. Or kill someone. We didn’t even leave the house, granted it was freezing rain most of the weekend, so I didn’t leave the house unless it was a dire need, but still. 21 hours is expert level shopping.

    HOLY COW… 21 hours? I’m impressed. You totally deserved the coffee & pretzel for carb loading for that πŸ™‚

    So much amazing looking food! I agree that long weekends are good for the soul, and should happen more often. Glad you guys scored so many great deals. Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    I still can’t believe you shopped for over 21 hours. I would have been dead. DEAD, I tell you. But give me all the pretzels, yuuuuum. Those fries at yo mama’s look delicious, as do the apps from Crazy Horse! And so sad that cute white top had a black mark on it! BOOO.

    Gosh, for a while there during that Iron Bowl I thought it was going to be a repeat of last year’s game. Kick… Kick… Kick… Kick…

    I can’t believe you shopped for 21 hours!! If there was a shopping competition you and your mom should totally join πŸ™‚ Looks like a great 4 day weekend!

  • Reply Cara November 30, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    Wow, shopping for that long takes determination. Love the shoes you scored! Also, I will definitely have to check that restaurant out if I’m ever in the area. Looks great πŸ™‚

    Crazy Horse looks like such a fun place with a lot of great beer and food options! I love that they served some of the food in a bowl made from a bottle, so much fun! And I’m giving you and your mom mad props for doing that much shopping! I know that I wouldn’t have been able to handle it, but that’s why I still have some Christmas shopping to do! Hope your Monday is starting off ok!

  • Reply Kelli November 30, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    I miss black Friday shopping with my mom and sister! Looks like you had fun and gifts for yourself are always a must.

    That apple strawberry hard cider sounds DELICIOUS!

    OMG I can’t believe you shopped that long! I would have killed someone… but you’re a kinder person than I am, no doubt! It’s amazing that she finished all of her shopping, though! I’m glad you had such a good weekend! Four-day weekends should be a thing, right?! And those jeans look amazing on you, girlfriend!

    The wedge booties are so pretty and they look so comfortable. I have to find that Strawberry magic asap. Sounds amazing along with boom boom shrimp. One of my favorite types of shrimp. I have an awesome recipe to cook it at home.
