I Bought Batteries on Black Friday

I have this whole separate idea for a blog post that involves the different types of Black Friday shoppers. Let's be honest, I probably won't get around to it until this next Black Friday however, I fit into each category of shopper, well,  I used to.

Now, I live in Germany where commercialism is at a minimum (at least where we live) and I love it!

We went to the PX that day though, to get Chelsi a smokin' deal on a computer which she really needed. We went in the afternoon and it was still busy but not like I'm sure it was in the morning. I also bought batteries for this super cool Santa decoration my mom gave me a long time ago. It's super cool. I want you to see it. I'll take a pic.

I tried not to look at advertisements because I knew I'd get sucked back in. I love a good sale!

Also, I have a man cold. This is no regular cold. This is a I-want-to-lay-on-the-couch-and-complain kind of cold AKA a man cold. I'm trying not to let it get the best of me but it's sort of winning. Again, definitition of man-cold.

Living in Europe is amazing. I try hard not to brag about it too much but this season (Christmas) allows for so many new traditions for us. Christmas markets, advent, and St. Nicholas Day being a few (although I'm not sure I'm doing the latter because I don't want to have to buy extra candy lol).

Our advent Sunday set-up
Remember how last year I didn't get to see Mockingjay OR go to Christmas markets? Guess what I will be doing this year? Both of those things. Woot.

Anyway, this is a bunch of non-sense because I'm trying to stick with that goal of mine to post at least twice a week. Today is my last day before my blogging week starts. Therefore, you are welcome. Just kidding. What do you look forward to most this holiday season?

    1. Hey Ashlyn, the only thing I know for sure about St. Nicholas Day is that kids put out their shoes on the night of December 5th and then Saint Nick comes by and if you've been good, fills them with candy and small toys. I think I'm gonna put fruit in my kids'. lol.

  3. I look forward to decorating the tree with my family! I'm so jealous you live in Europe, I've always wanted to visit there and go to a Christmas market. Btw, your definition of a man cold is on point!
