Happy Friday! Plans for the weekend?

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a good week and a nice T'giving (those who celebrate it).  Who has to work today???  How was your T'giving day/meal?

I know there are quite a few sick babies here, so I'm sending them get well wishes. GL to those TTCing.  T&Ps to those who need them.

Safe travels to the ones on the road this busy weekend.

What are your plans for this weekend?  Who is traveling?  Who is going shopping?  Who is just relaxing after a busy week?

QOTW: Black Friday - yay or nay?

Re: Happy Friday! Plans for the weekend?

  • On wow, I totally forgot it was Friday! I'm off today, yay! We are going to a gtg at MH's cousins house tonight, then SIL, bil, and their little boy will stay with us the rest of the weekend. Saturday we are having family over to see the new place. And hopefully Sunday will be relaxing.
    QOTW: no way. I'm already not a big shopper, and also hate crowds so bf shopping is a no go for me.

  • Thanksgiving was nice, just a small crew at my parents house, had some good grub then were entertained by the antics of LO. I volunteered to help out with our black friday opening at 8pm last night so I was working from 8-midnight, it went well, people were nice, and I got paid time and half! 

    The rest of the weekend I have to work, but luckily the pharmacy at a retail chain isn't the place most people shop. No black friday deals on meds! So it should be pretty good weekend.

    I'm "working" today :(  Thanksgiving was good, super fast though.  And a very non-traditional meal, which is kind of disappointing.  I think one weekend soon, I'm going to do a turkey and all the traditional sides just for us!

    This weekend, we don't have much planned.  So I'm hoping we can put up the Christmas tree and maybe I'll get a little shopping done.  Oh and I have to get Christmas cards ordered this weekend, for sure!

    ETA:  QOTW:  Yay to Black Friday!!  Not so much for the sales, but for the tradition.  Besides this year, I used to spend every Black Friday shopping with my Mom and sisters.  We were never up super early or anything, we probably were there after all the serious shoppers left.  I love the craziness of it all and I feel like it just sort of starts off the Christmas season.

    No Thanksgiving here. But I did have my last class for cake decorating yesterday. That was fun.

    So this weekend, today I dropped Hannah off at my MIL's, she's there right now. I just really needed a break and she's been asking if I can bring her by more often. Happy all around. Tonight is just hanging out with my hubby. We've been super busy all week with parties, classes, practices that a night in sounds really nice.

    Saturday I want DH to fix our Christmas lights outside, then we are going to see Catching Fire in the afternoon. Sunday is church, and we have our Christmas breakfast. Then to my in-laws for my FIL and my nephew's birthday party.

    QOTW: Nay to Black Friday. I just can't handle it. Same reason I don't do Boxing Day sales in Canada (same kind of thing). I don't know, maybe it's the crowds, maybe it's the greediness of people. I just don't like it. I mean the fact that people get hurt or killed just makes me shake my head.

  • I'm off today, even though I'm off thurs and fri since I'm only back to work part time, but DH is off today too. No major plans this weekend. LOs home health nurse is coming tomorrow to give her the second Synagis shot. Otherwise well just hang out. I think mil is coming to visit today since we didn't celebrate thanksgiving with them.

    QOTW: Not this year! I went last year for the first time and had an absolute blast!! It was craziness, but I got some good deals and really just wanted to go for the experience. I did go out Wendesday night and took advantage of the Carters sale and also Target for a Baby Einstein jumper thing.
  • We had a nice T'giving - went to DH's family and then stopped in to see my parents.

    This weekend we plan to do our Christmas decorating. I'm excited to get started since it's LO's first Christmas! DH's parents are coming over tomorrow to keep her while we decorate.

    QOTW: yes - a little. DH was a total rock star and went to Best.Buy last night to get me a Mac.Book pro!! Yayyyyyyy!! We went back today and he got a couple of things. Now we're on our way home and who know what we'll do!

    Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  • DH & I hosted T'giving for the first time ever.  We used to travel to ILs' in Connecticut, but they finally sold their house and moved out closer to us last week.  They have gone a major downsizing too.  Since they had just moved, we offered to host T'giving.  Not sure if MIL is ready to pass the torch to me at this point; OTOH, I think she is happy not to have to cook everything on her own and deal with the clean-up/leftovers.  It was a meal contributed by everyone, and it was quite a success.  My first time roasting a turkey and it came out pretty good!  

    Tomorrow we may go out for lunch, but otherwise just staying in and relaxing.  Sunday afternoon I'm going to a concert so DH & M will be having some "man time."  M has been a total Mama's boy for the past many weeks and I feel bad for DH b/c he works all day long and when he comes home, M is still clinging to me.  I think some 1:1 time for the 2 of them will be good.

    QOTW: nay to Black Friday.  And not really crazy about cyber monday either.  Have checked my email inbox and none of the deals are that great.  In any case, when we need to buy something, we just go ahead and buy, rather than waiting around for sales or deals..

  • QOTW: I don't ever do Black Friday shopping. The day after thanksgiving is all about eating leftovers and laying on the couch with a blanket or a warm sleeping baby this year.

    Thanksgiving was nice and quiet with just our little family this year, but I missed all my relatives.

    Not too much planned for the weekend. I am supposed to go to a infant massage class tomorrow w Baby I, but my car battery that I just had replaced died, so I might have to deal w that instead.

  • We are the ILs right now (and I'm hating every minute of it). We will go to my parents tonight and have Thanksgiving lunch tomorrow with my grandparents. DH was on call all week so we post poned our celebrations.

    No work for me, I'm a teacher and had Wednesday-Sunday off.

    No Black Friday for me either. I don't do big crowds like that and it's not worth it to me.

  • We had a nice dinner at our house last night. My parents, brother and a friend came to eat.

    I went to target this afternoon after the craziness died down to score a good deal on my secret Santa stuff :) and grab a few things for J. 

    Tomorrow is my bday! DH is going to rise with J so I can sleep in (yay!). Having a holiday weekend bday is crappy, but I'm just going to hang with my family. 

    Sunday we are putting up the tree and having family pics taken!

  • We had as nice of a thanksgiving as I could have expected. Everyone loved O and I was trying to be less crazy about other people holding him. As long as I was in sight, his stranger danger stare was not seen.

    I went to staples today for a new cordless phone but only because mine died.  I also snuck into the craft store so that I could do that Pinterest Christmas ornament where you put in the newborn hat and hospital wrist bands in to put on the tree.  It came out so cute!  I'm all about internet shopping this year (and every year!)

  • Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone!

    We are getting up at the buttcrack of dawn to go to a bar to watch the Ohio State Michigan game. Then later we are having a scotch tasting party. Then I have to set up all my Advent decorations (and buy a wreath.)

    QOTW: I don't do Black Friday, but I did go to a local children's store and an antique store. We're on the hunt for a new china cabinet.
