I love Christmas more than anything, but this weekend is UP there in the rankings.
Despite a 6.5 hour drive to Alabama that takes about 8 with 3 kids- I enjoy the more slow pace in Alabama with Tom’s family. I love the fall air, fall leaves, family, and fellowship for Thanksgiving at my mother in laws house. We have made it a tradition to head to our alma mater when Auburn plays our biggest rivals at home – The Iron Bowl (Auburn v Alabama). We visit friends and pack in a whole lot of nostalgia before heading back to a long long long trip back to reality.
Okay- let’s not focus on my drive, let’s talk SALES!
Don’t forget with all of this Thanksgiving week fun, I love popping in for Black Friday deals downtown in my husbands hometown and trying to find unique gifts that I couldn’t find anywhere else & let’s not forget I am a Cyber Monday sucker.
I wanted to share some of the deals that I am taking advantage of this weekend. I love to use this opportunity to not only shop for gifts but to get our household some things we were needing at half price. It is not easy feet running a household of 5. You need to find deals when you can.
Today I am sharing “What’s in My Cart” Black Friday style.
W h e n s h o p p i n g t h i s w e e k e n d I a m l o o k i n g f o r :
– things for the house (any appliances or house needs)
– items for the kids to stock up on (subscriptions, clothes, gifts for christmas)
– things for me (coats, jeans, shoes or things I would want to invest in and take advantage of deals)
– gifts for family: husband, brothers, mom, dad, friends, in-laws
Here are my picks so far – even though I wish I could add ALL to cart!

I have been SO excited to finally get a few of these for the house and the girls rooms. It is only $25.00! WOW. I will have to tell you – my mom has these in her house and I have not seen a better camera. I have spend hundreds on monitor after monitor – finally we found a good one that is cheap and its high quality. It syncs with your phone and alerts you with motion. Clearest picture by far! RUN – Don’t walk!
