Five Question Friday – Black Friday Edition!

by Carrie with Children with 3 comments

Are you a Black Friday shopper?  Did you stand in line half the night for the “perfect” gift or shop the deals online?  I stayed up last night and got some online bargains. I love being able to shop without ever leaving the couch!

Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button below to see a linky list of others also participating.  Be sure and share your below too!

What is your favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal?  I know I sound like a broken record, but it’s my great Aunt’s Southern cornbread dressing recipe.  This year, a close second was the sweet potato casserole.  I tried a new recipe and it turned out delicious!

Are you a host or a guest for Thanksgiving this year? We hosted this year!  My mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and my nephew joined us at the table for Thanksgiving. We had a great meal, with tons of delicious food and good laughs.

When you think of one Thanksgiving tradition, what comes to mind? Does eating too much count as a Thanksgiving tradition?  It does to me!

You have two pieces of pie in front of you and you HAVE to eat one…do you choose pumpkin or pecan?  Definitely the pecan pie. I’m not a fan of pumpkin flavored stuff and yes, I’ve tried it – I’m just not a fan of it.  Pecan pie is the best when it’s hot and served with vanilla ice cream. 

Are you a Black Friday Shopper? I love good deals but I also love sleeping.  I usually miss the crowds and just go out after lunchtime on Black Friday.  I’ve found that most of the crazy people that are out and about at 5am are usually fast asleep by lunchtime…  and the stores aren’t near as hectic.  I’m also a huge fan of online shopping – but only if I get free shipping!

    I would have to say my favorite part of Thanksgiving is Deviled Eggs. I love eggs and then the stuffing would be second.
    We are usually guests at Thanksgiving we go to my mom's because her house is larger-I have the larger yard but her house is fabulous for entertaining. There was my mom, her boyfriend, his daughter, me, my husband, my son, my sister in law, my daughter, her husband and son. For Christmas, my sister,her husband and daughter will be joining us as well.
    Thanksgiving tradition I can think of is football after all the eating and we're lounging like beached whales.
    I have two pieces and I'm going to pass either one-not fond of either pecan or pumpkin pie.
    NO I am NOT a Black Friday shopper though I have plenty of friends that are-they say they save more than they spent and that is why they do it. I went online shopping for my grandson's big Christmas gift so its out of the way and I couldn't find in any stores so I had to find his spring rocking horse online.

    I have no patience for Black Friday… none! I'd rather sit home and eat pie… which is what I'm doing right now! 🙂
