I Survived Black Friday

So you may be asking, "What is Black Friday?" Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving and it is one of the major U.S. holiday shopping days. Black Friday was when retailers went from being unprofitable - in the red, to being profitable - in the black.

My husband and I planned our morning last night by thumbing through all the retail fliers. We planned on being at Wal-Mart by 4:30am. So, that meant getting up way too early. Luckily we were able to get what we wanted. Next we went to Kohl's and then Target. I made it back home in time to get a little sleep before I opened my shop. Yawning...

It's amazing what people do to save a penny. People were even arguing over toys this morning at Target.

Thanksgiving Day was wonderful! We spent part of the day with my husband's family and the next part with my family. I ate too much! But who doesn't! I have to say my most favorite dish is the sweet potato casserole. Yummy! Wow, just thinking about it is making me hungry.

I'm just so excited....

I am very excited to have begun my new business in August, 2005. We opened and have been doing better than I expected.

Owning my very own business has been a life long dream. I owe it to my wonderful husband, David and my daughters, Kali, Hailey and Lilia. They have been so supportive.

We just recently added Jumpin' June Bugs to our store. Susan who started Jumpin' June Bugs is a stay-at-home mom who makes "pillowcase dresses". They are sooo adorable!

And Susan from Sweet Su Creations who makes our hairbows has been doing fantastic!
