Mama M over at My Little Life is having a blog carnival for 5 question Friday! So here it goes...
1. Are you a Black Friday shopper?
YES! I love love love it. Something about digging through the ads on Thanksgiving day, making a plan of what stores open first and what stores have the best deals, clipping the extra savings coupons (which you know are my favorite),waking up at 4:30 am and convincing my husband to come with me (even MORE fun!).
Last year I was a little disappointed in Macy's because I planned and planned my Macy's trip out to buy Ben's 'only-shoe-he'll-wear' Wallabees for $89.99 (originally $120). Well, I ended up missing the deal. So I went later the next week to buy them and they were 50% off AND I had a coupon. Ended up paying $45!!! SUCH a better deal than was advertised on Black Friday. So Macy's is now off my Black Friday list. Walmart, however, definitely still on the list.
2. What was your favorite childhood toy? (Think Easy Bake Oven, Cabbage Patch Kid, Shrinky Dinks, etc.)
I'm going to have to go with Skip-it on this one.
Mainly because I got it for my birthday one year (I know not Christmas) and I had never been so excited to get a present in my life. I immediately started 'skipping-it' and whacked my best friend in the ankle, who proceeded to cry hysterically the rest of MY birthday party. I mean c'mon.
3. Favorite Christmas movie?
Can I tell you what my LEAST favorite Christmas movie is instead? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. If I never saw this movie again it would be a wonderful thing. It makes me so uncomfortable and anxious.
But okay, okay, I'll play along... I'm going to go with Ghostbusters II.
(What? You say that isn't a Christmas Movie?! Wanna bet... its on this list, so I win.) Don't you remember the crowd of people singing Auld Lang Syne outside the museum when its encased in a big pink blobby shell?!4. What is the "must have" item on your Christmas list this year?
