Black Friday

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. I said I wouldn’t do it, but I did it. I over ate yesterday and woke up to a splitting headache and puffy eyes. I am regretting  the loads of desserts I ate tasted all day long. I am simply not used to eating one BIG meal, much less two! But I am thankful.

My daughter came home to stay a few days with us. I kissed my husband and told him I’d see him again in a few days. haha. That is our joke when she comes over because once she hits the door, the girl talk starts. We jabber the whole time about friends, fashion, recipes and work. He gets put on the back burner while I give all my attention to her most of the time. 

She came in bringing goodies from Trader Joe's. We do not have a TraderJoes store in my town, so its always a treat when she brings the goodies. 
We stayed up late Thanksgiving Eve and decorated the Christmas tree and started the cooking for Thanksgiving. 

Today is the day that everyone rushes out before the sun comes up to grab a great black Friday deal. This is something I have never had any intentions to do. I would rather pay ten dollars more for an item than to get into that mess. Better yet, There are black Friday special going on all over the internet too. I will probably be in cyber world all day. 

Below are a couple black Friday sales going on today that I just so happen to be partnered with. I am happy to have the opportunities to share good things from honest companies.

For every bag sold, a family is fed. Each bag is hand made from recycled rice bags so there are no two alike.

Goose Creek Candles- SHOP HERE

These candles are absolutely wonderful. They burn clean and full of fragrance.
I’m really enjoying my peppermint candle. 

Nutrisystem: SHOP HERE

Nutrisystem is the only diet that worked for me. I lost 50 lbs and it was so easy. 
The food is delicious and satisfying. 
They have plans starting at 249.00 a month. 
That's a great deal considering what you spend at the grocery store a month where most food goes to waste or waist. 

Clio Snacks - SHOP HERE.
OK there is no black Friday sale for these delicious yogurt bars but you can find them at most Walmarts and Harris Teeter stores. They are my new favorite snack. They absolutely taste like and have the texture of little cheese cakes dipped in chocolate. New flavors and ideas are in the works for the new year. You can find them on the Yogurt isles and they are only a dollar each! You will fall in love with them.

I thank HIM every single day for that.

  6. Hi Lisa,
    I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. It was a small one for us, we are all meeting as a family in Pittsburgh for Christmas. I enjoyed hearing about your daughter! We need to hit Trader Joes more often! Love the bag and the giving to a family. I love candles too, going to check those out. I don't go out on Black Friday either, too many crowds!
