Today was Black Friday and it was another year of tradition as my mom and I marathon shopped, capping off 2010's BF with a whopping eight straight hours. I started the day with Kellyn at Gap for the 50% off before 10 a.m. sale, and from there, I met Mom and we went to Nordstrom Rack, Party City, Gap, Willow Bend Mall and then the craziness known as the Allen Premium Outlets. To say it was bananas there does not cut it. I've never seen a crowd like I saw at the Coach outlet, with the line to check out wrapped around the entire store twice. The day was great fun and while we found some deals for our Salvation Army Angel and my sister-in-law, we didn't make out like complete bandits. Anyway, I came home to see what else was online and was excited to find these hilarious Shalom Sesame tees and many more Hanukkah goodies (there's a severe Hanukkah drought in stores) at Modern Tribe.

How awesome are these? What did YOU find?

Hope you had a successful shopping day!

Happy Thanksgiving To My Awesomes

I'm writing this post (I know, I'm a few behind) from my old bedroom at my parents' house after a successful day of lounging, eating, laughing, coloring, and visiting. I didn't even get dressed until 5 p.m. and I made the best turkey we've ever had. Glorious.

I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful family that live so close to each other whom I simply love to be around, cherished friends who continue to surprise, inspire, and entertain me, amazing readers, a fabulous cat of my own and my parents' to love on, and probably most importantly, my health, because when you have that, you have the ability to do anything. Some warriors I know are fighting for their health this year. They continue to motivate me, my family, their own families, strangers, and many others as they help us all realize that while today is Thanksgiving, every day is a holiday, and should be joyfully celebrated.

Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Thursday, Happy Day to you all.

With love and gratitude,
Pia The Pig
