A few cookies and a little complaint!

Let's just get that complaint out of the way first! Just who's idea was it to change the hours of Black Friday? I mean yes, I am an early bird (so much so that most think I need intervention) so getting up at 3:30 a.m. to go shopping is really no big deal. So, let's stop right there and address that elephant in the room...what are your thoughts on Black Friday? I mean sure, I love a good deal, and there are plenty of them on that day, but now it seems that there are good deals EVERYDAY! Call me sick, but I enjoy the frenzy and if I get a good deal at the same time, that is just an added bonus! This is the day that truly kicks off the holiday season, in my opinion!

So, let's get back to that complaint...who decided that starting Black Friday at midnight was a good idea? Seriously people, 12:00 MIDNIGHT?...why not just make it 3:00 in the afternoon on Thanksgiving, because that is when a lot of crazy people (not me) will be getting in line for all those great deals! Now, because I am a self proclaimed early bird, I am definitely NOT a night owl...so going out at night to go shopping is not a viable option for me! I should boycott it completely and stay home, but let's be honest, I won't...so I will be going about my usual routine and getting up at 3:30, to be at the stores by about 4:00 a.m.  Who's with me?!

'Nuff said on that topic!

I must confess...I have not made any Thanksgiving cookies this year...crazy, huh?  I did think about it, but knew that it would be that many more cookies that we would be consuming around here, and who needs that?  It is for that reason that I am sharing some that I have made in the past...if you were around last year, then I will refresh your memory...if you were not, then we will just pretend that I am posting them for the first time!



Thanks for stopping by...tomorrow I hope to have an ABC Project to share.



There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

Ok, I am so with you on the Black friday thing,it kind of takes all the fun out of it!! Now that it is starting on Thursday, it can't be called Black Friday! Oh and I really do not like seeing Christmas and Halloween stuff out at the same time..my 2 cents! Love you cookies! Adrienne

First, even year old cookies look yummy - hee, hee, hee!
As for Black Friday, well, I usually skip it except for on-line shopping. I am however contemplating hitting up a few big box craft stores, but that will be the early morning hours. With some stores opening before midnight and others not until 5 it sounds like everyone will be pulling allnighters and they need to change the name of the day to Black Thursday Night!
