Black Friday Online Shopping, Hunting & Venison in the Freezer

I am not one to head out first thing in the morning to wrestle with strangers trying to get the best deal on Christmas presents. I like to sleep in, eat left over dessert for breakfast and sit around all morning long watching Christmas movies with the children. And that is exactly what I did this morning.

Mr Wall Nut left the house long before I ever thought about waking up or getting out of bed to go hunting with his brother. While he was sitting in the woods waiting for a deer, I was laying on the couch with 5 kids. We cuddled for hours drifting in and out of sleep with nothing to do. It was pure bliss.

Eventually I did managed to pull myself off the couch and try to do a little bit of Christmas shopping online. I tried to shop at the Lego store online but it ran sooo slowly today. They have some awesome deals this weekend and the site was overloaded all day long. Half the time I couldn’t even get a page to come up. I tried on and off all day long with little luck. I tried all day to get both of the big kids signed up for the Lego club to get their magazines in time for the Holidays, but could only get one of them signed up. I still have time to get the other one signed up this weekend :)

I got a few things from different stores using EBates. I love shopping online and getting cash back! For Black Friday they were giving double cash back. Awesome deals with double cash back, sounds good to me!

Have you ever seen the Target commercials with the super excited shopper? She is that blond woman who has the craziest smile and trains for Black Friday shopping. I love the one where where she is frozen with excitement, first in line waiting in front of the store, lol. There is another one where she is recording her voice singing on greeting cards in the card aisle. It makes me laugh every time I see it. I love the way she walks away laughing at herself.

Mr Wall Nut spent all day long hunting, but didn’t end up shooting a deer. His brother did get a deer first thing in the morning and has enough venison in his freezer that they were able to give it to us. Wall Nut and I just went through a cooler full of deer meat trying to figure out which cut was which, labeling it and tossing it in the freezer.

Tomorrow we are heading on over to my mother-in-laws for another Thanksgiving dinner with Wall Nut’s brother and his family and step-sister and her family. Just in time too, we just finished up our 13 pound turkey tonight for dinner and are in need for more Holiday feasting.
