Call Waiting

I am currently on call waiting for the CHIP office, while I am writing this.

All I can say is, Elevator Music.

Anyway, I think Black Friday is totally weird. I wonder why they call it black friday? I usually like to relax the day after Thanksgiving, in a comfortable chair, and think about all the frantic shoppers while I am enjoying my vacation. But this Black Friday, I shopped. And it was fun.

I only went to one store.


I think IKEA is fun. It kind of feels like an airport to me. When you first walk in there is an escalator that takes you up and you kind of don't know what to do for a second. Then after you get your stuff, you have to walk through their stock items, which the ceiling could totally pass as high as an airport. It's huge. Okay, so then you get to the check out and it literally feels like you will have to take off your shoes and put them in a little tub and get wanded by security. But you don't have to do that. It just feels like it. I don't know why, maybe it's the smell of cinnamon rolls as you leave, or the plastic that guards the cashier.


All I ended up getting was material. You can buy it by the yard, and they have a ton of fun patterns!! I am planning on making pillows from this gorgeous stuff and I am excited. What did you do on Black Friday?


  1. Oh, I really like the black and white leaf print and the blue background one too. Well, they are all cute together. How fun!

    I didn't shop on Black Friday either. But I did buy a new backlight for my car's climate control that was out. I was so proud of Seth and I because we decided to replace it ourselves. We spent $5.12 for the replacement bulb. It would've cost $55 to have the dealership replace it.

  2. Great finds! I need to do some new pillows myself. Mine are looking a bit tired.


  3. i bought nothing. i never go out either, but i did this year. thank goodness my mom was there to buy things for me. she got me a manicure and a pedicure. it was sooooo relaxing. then she bought me 3 new anti bac soaps from bath and body works. i picked the vanilla fig, the winter candy apple (in the foam), and a midnight pomagranite (it's my reg fav). all in all it was still relaxing just to have some mom and me time:-)
