Black Friday shopping has been our tradition for years! As a matter of fact, shopping for Christmas gifts together has been our tradition since Amy and I were dating. Coupled with today’s economy, it was even more imperative that we get good deals for this year’s gifts.

We did something different this year- we started Black Friday at midnight. The Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe opened its doors at 11:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving day. So instead of going to bed, we got in our car and headed to the mall. We left the house a little bit after midnight. After fighting traffic towards the mall, God blessed us with a parking spot within a few minutes.

When we got in the mall, it was literally filled wit thousands of people. I talked to my Dad and told him that it was like going to Disneyland except there was no ride at the end of the line. We left the mall at about 4:30 a.m. Then we hit Walmart, Kohl’s, Target, and Radio Shack.

We then ended the day eating breakfast at Paradise Bakery (I should say Amy ended her day). I continued until noon shopping for Amy’s gifts. It was a great day and yes, next year we will have a baby to bring with us- not to show our baby off but so that the stroller can help carry some of our stuff. 🙂

  1. Juan and Amy, Black Friday has always been one of our favorite holiday traditions, too!!! And we’ve continued to get up early and shop-til-we-drop with each one of our children (3 and one on the way!) We give the older ones a dollar and see what kind of bargains they can find! 🙂On a side note, we’ve been wanting to e-mail you all. Could you send me your e-mail addy? primrose_sb@yahoo.comThanks so much!Your friends in Christ, Brent and Selina

  2. Black Friday was crazy. it looks like you made it, though. Dad said that there was no way he was going outside on Black Friday. He said that if the house caught on fire, he would just wait on the front lawn!
