2 Hams, 2 Turkeys, Broccoli & Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce, Pistachio Salad, Jello, Rolls, Mashed Potatoes, 2 Types of Gravy, Funeral Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, and 7 Pies...All that great food and I couldn't even enjoy it. I had a fever, sores in my mouth and my throat hurt so bad I couldn't even swallow...On the plus side I actually lost a couple pounds!

Thats a lot of people on one couch.
The pies...My favorite part.

My very first black Friday adventure. Target was the place and we knew exactly what we wanted(the 46" tv for $300). We stood in line for only about 2 1/2 hours. We got to the tv's and only then realized the store gave away tickets to the first few people who wanted the 46" tv and the tickets were gone. So we settled for the 40"($265) which was still a step up from our old 27" tube tv. We were in line about to check out when some lady came up to us and said, "I noticed you guys have the 40" tv, would you like to have my ticket for the 46" tv?" Jesse and I of course said yes. We were so excited and could not understand how out of hundreds of people this lady chose to give US the ticket.

Anyways, there we were standing there with this 40"tv that we no longer wanted. So we turned to the people behind us and asked if they wanted it. I guess they were disappointed that the tv's were gone by the time they got there so when we gave them our 40" tv they were literally screaming and jumping for joy. They kept saying how we made their Christmas.

So to sum up my black friday experience, it was AWESOME!

Look how pretty it is!!
