Hello, dear readers! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends.
There’s nothing like some retail therapy to burn off those Thanksgiving calories! No lie, I typically get all of my Christmas shopping done during these next few days. Some things I pick up online, some things I find when I venture out to the mall. It is a huge relief to have it all taken care of by the first of the month–then I can actually enjoy the holidays and not worry about getting back out into the rush.
I know every blogger out there is on this bandwagon, so I’ll try not to overwhelm you. I’ll be providing some of my favorite things from my favorite stores: Nordstrom, Loft, J.Crew Factory, Abercrombie, Target, and Lauren James.
Lots of great sales on clothes and shoes for men and women! I also included the carseat we use, the maxi-cosi pria. Aida always looks so comfortable in her seat, and this is the perfect time to buy while it’s on sale.

There are some awesome deals called “jackpot deals” that are going on right now. Whenever you visit the site, make sure you click the Black Friday Jackpot Deals link so you can see if there’s anything new added! I’m excited about the flannel shirts that are marked down to $25.
One sale that is really awesome right now at Target is BOGO toys–certain toy brands are buy one, get one 50% off, including Melissa and Doug. You all know I love me some M&D, so I will definitely be picking out a few gifts for Aida from this sale. There are some awesome deals on baby gear as well.
Ladies, if you’re looking to get some clothes for yourself, you’ve got to check out the sale at Loft–currently everything is 50% off! Men, you can go wrong with a gift from Loft.
I’ve never been much of an Abercrombie shopper (probably because the store is loud and dark and smells like a high school quarterback spilled his cologne everywhere), but on a whim I looked them up a few months ago and realized that I really like some of their clothes, especially their sweaters.
Lauren James in particular has been posting some teasers for Black Friday, and I’m very excited about their sale. I love their t-shirts and pullovers, and I pretty much live in them during the weekdays. Their site is down until 12pm CST. Once it’s live I’ll update with a few of my favorites.
Whew! That should be enough to get you started. Let me know if you have questions, or if there’s something you’d like to see. Happy shopping!
