Why Do Long Weekends Seem So Short?

I always tell myself that when I have a day off of school I am going to relax and do nothing. Why doesn't this happen? 

Oh that's right... I'm a wife, mother and teacher. What was I thinking? We don't get days off! 

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house (on Thanksgiving and again today) and even though I loved every moment, I am exhausted! My mom has been here since Wednesday afternoon and I couldn't have survived without her. My little girl just turned two and it was great to have my mom here to keep her entertained! Here's a picture of my baby girl on her birthday. She had an Elmo cake, but we gave her a cupcake for her to blow out the candles. I've always had a thing with people blowing on food that we are going to eat! ;)

On Friday my Mom and I went shopping. My baby girl got to experience her first Black Friday! We didn't go out until after 10am because we thought the lines would be shorter. We were wrong. The checkout line at Kohl's wrapped more than half-way around the store. It took about 45 minutes to wait to check out, but it was worth it. The combined total for our purchases was $212, but we saved $428. I have most of my shopping done and only a few things left to order online. Even though it was a long wait in line, the savings were more than worth it and the fact that I now have $60 Kohl's Cash to use makes it even better. Did you score any great Black Friday deals? 

I've also been working on a little surprise. You'll need to keep an eye on my Facebook page to see what it is! :) If you aren't a fan, you might want to "like" my page by the end of the week. Click on the image below to check it out. 

I am also participating in the BIG Cyber Monday (& Tuesday!) sale at TpT. My entire store will be 20% off and if you use the code "CYBER" TpT will add an extra 10% off to your order. 
I have already started to fill up my cart. Have you? 

I think it is time to actually relax for a bit. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm going to go and add more items to my shopping cart!
