Thanksgiving - American style!

Hello everyone! I'm trying to get back into blogging, but lately I think I've been in a blogging funk. I just haven't had the motivation (or time) to blog, but no fear, I think I may slowly be making my return. My semester is slowly coming to an end, there's only 3 weeks left including exams and then I'll be off for just over a month.

As of tomorrow I'm Washington-bound for Thanksgiving! I'm actually very excited about this, because it will be my first (American) Thanksgiving. Since I attend an American University, we get 3 days off over Thanksgiving, so I'm jetting down to Washington to visit family.

I'm looking forward to a nice break to spend time with family and maybe (just maybe) squeeze in a little bit of shopping. I've only heard stories about this elusive "Black Friday", but I really want to make a pit stop to Wal-Mart and check out the DVD sales.

Is "Black Friday" really as crazy as I've always heard?

I think that's all I have to say for now, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Yes, Black Friday IS that crazy! And Walmart is one of the worst. It is best to have a plan of attack, know what you are looking for. Black Friday is not the day to just go browsing to see what kind of deals are out there. That will get you eaten alive :)

    Good Luck! And enjoy your first American Thanksgiving.

  2. ELLA! It's been forever and a day since I was last here... i've missed your blog! how are you????? :) I've only been to Black Friday once i think since i live in Canada but yes, it IS crazy... as in... people camp out overnight type of crazy!! It's just not worth it to me. Crowds scare me. haha!
