All the Craziness of Black Friday!!!

This past Friday, I must have been out of my mind, crazy!! On my b-day I woke up at 1:30 a.m. to leave Duncan at 2:00 a.m. to head to Wichita Falls, TX with my BF from high school, her sister, and mom to go shopping. I love shopping, but this was an entirely new experience! There are a lot of crazy people out at 4 a.m. Teri and her family have this Black Friday shopping thing down. On the road they had all their adds and were making a list of all the items and stores that we had to hit. I didn't come very prepared and the only thing that was on my list was to buy a lap top computer(I know all my closest friends are reading in amazement at this news-but I'm really trying hard to get caught up on new technology!), which I was planning to purchase at Best Buy, only to find out the line was like 3 blocks long and the store only had 3, and crazy people had camped out over night! So we decided not to even try. Our first stop was Kohl's. Then we headed to drop Amy(Teri's sis)off at Target where she waited outside in the cold for 2 hrs, while we headed to JC Penney's. Then we were off to Wal Mart, where I got a really good deal on a lap top and printer not to mention a new digital camera and a really cool digital photo frame. I know HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME AND MERRY CHRISTMAS, TOO!! After that we hooked back up at Target with Amy. The Target experience was the craziest of all! The line was like forever long and right before the doors opened a crowd of like 100 people tried to rush the door! We were at the front of the line, thanks to Amy waiting in the freezing cold, and then there was the crazy man ahead of us who I thought might kill someone who tried to cut in front of him! He kept on screaming to the door rushers "THE LINE IS DOWN THE ROAD" over and over again! As soon as the doors opened, I felt like I was cattle being driven inside. Good thing I didn't fall or I would have been trampled all over! We hit 5 stores in like 2 hrs. and had gotten everything on the list. We did good! The rest of the day was spent going back and forth to these same 5 stores getting good deals that weren't on the list! After all our shopping we headed to one of my favorite places to eat, Olive Garden! We arrived back in Duncan at 6 p.m. Talk about a long, fun day of shopping! I really had a great b-day getting to do two of my favorite things: spending time with my dearest friend Teri and going shopping! Can't wait to do it all over again next year-I'll come better prepared! Thanks Teri for making my b-day special!! Another BIG THANKS goes out to all my other friends who called or sent Happy B-Day messages to me! You are all the best and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life!!

Fun Times with the Fam!

This past Monday I drove home to my home town of Duncan OK to hang out with my family for an entire week. Monday night was tons of fun at the Bailey house hold. My aunt, cousins, and their kiddos came over to eat pizza and play my all time favorite Texas game of Spinner. We had a house full, but it was so much fun getting together with all my cousins! My mom was the Spinner winner, my dad followed close behind in second. Spinner was a huge hit! I had so much fun spending time with my family. I feel truly blessed by God to have such a wonderful, loving, supportive family!!

Today was such a fun day! My dad came down and we went to watch a Dallas Cowboys game. So here's the story: a dear friend from church(Amy Williams) came up to me a couple of weeks ago at church and told me that her husband had been given 4 tickets to the Cowboys game, but they couldn't go, so she asked me if I wanted the tickets(knowing the HUGE ROMO fan that I am). OMG- I started jumping up and down and screaming right then and there and told her YES, YES, YES!! I was so EXCITED and called my dad right away! Originally, my dad, mom, and sister were going to go to the game with me, but that plan fell through due to work and not feeling well. So I ended up taking my dad, Cleve(my BF's dad), and Trey(my BF's brother-in-law) and we had the best time ever! So glad that you were able to come to the game with me Cleve, Trey, and Dad!! By the way, we had the best seats ever! We sat on the 50 yard line, row 33-we were so close! Before the game, I got to go closer and I made friends with the security guard. I was trying to get on T.V. because I made a really cool sign that said Romo is a FOX(bc FOX broad casted the game)! I just knew that I was going to get on, but it never happened-oh well. Elizabeth, you would have been so proud of my sign, though. Any way back to the game-WE WERE SO CLOSE AND MOST IMPORTANT THE COWBOYS WON AND I GOT A LOT OF PICS OF ROMO!! A BIG THANKS goes out to the Williams family for giving me the free tickets!! I've never set so close and probably never will again! Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!! Go Cowboys!!

Happy Early B-Day to Me!

I just wanted to send a BIG SHOUT OUT OF THANKS to my dearest friends Amy and Elizabeth for wishing me a Happy Early Birthday! For those of you who don't know or maybe have forgotten my b-day is on the 23rd and for some reason I'm really not looking all that forward to it this year. But, thanks to my dearest girlfriends they have already made it a very special day(even though we celebrated a week early)!
On Friday morning, Ames brought me an early b-day breakfast before work. We had breakfast burritos and carmel apple ciders and got to catch up on life. She also brought me the most beautiful flowers! This is a tradition for us to do an early b-day breakfast because my b-day always falls around Thanksgiving and I'm always at home with the fam. on my special day, so we celebrate early. I love this tradition and hope that we continue to do it for a long time! Thanks Ames for making my b-day special!!
Then, after school I had a message on my phone from Elizabeth and Carly. It was the most adorable Happy Birthday song I've ever heard! It made me feel all warm inside! Thanks Elizabeth for making me feel so special!
God has truly blessed me with your friendships and I cherish all of our fun times together!! Thanks for being the best friends ever!!
