I will consider this post an event because lets face it, Black Friday can be quite an event. From the parking lot to lines in the store, you never really know how the day will pan out.
Every year my mom and her long time friend go to the mall the day after Thanksgiving. As long as I can remember my dad would drop them off and wait for their call to come pick them up after the long fun-filled day of shopping. I started to join them as I got older and started to like shopping more (I think it was mainly because I could last the day of shopping). I have been joining them for some time now.
Let me say it is an experience and I love it. I love being out in all the crowds and I am a professional people watcher. (Black Friday is a good day for people watching) This shopping trip is a tradition I will keep.
This year we started our day around 10:30 at the Towson Town Center. I planned on stopping in my favorite stores, J.Crew, Madewell, and Nordstrom. I found something in each store.
Surprising I know! I just can't leave things behind in these stores.
Now I didn't go overboard or anything and to be honest there wasn't to much stuff I wanted to buy. I am a terrible shopper when places are busy and packed. (That might have had something to do with it) But I did find a favorite, must have at Madewell.
How great is that sweater? I had to break it in already.
Nordstrom is one of my favorite places in the mall to wander around. Bags, shoes, clothes it has everything including one of my weakness- jewelry.
Now it wasn't all about us. We did do a little Christmas shopping for others. They will have to wait and be surprised.
We ended up leaving the mall around 5:00! We all had a wonderful time and I can't wait until next year to do it all again.
