Happy Black Friday!

What a glorious day, one of my favorites of the whole year!  I'm almost completely done Christmas Shopping.  I just have a few small things left for Paul.

I didn't wake up super early this morning.  Paul got up at 3:45 to get something (he won't tell me what) from Hhgregg.  He was back in bed by 4:30.  I was exhausted from our hr long bootcamp session on thanksgiving at 8 am followed by a 1/2 fun run as well as all the cooking for thanksgiving.

I ended up venturing out around 8 am.  First I headed up the street to Fair Oaks to use my $20 off of $40 coupon for Lord & Taylor.  I was able to get an awesome Calvin Klein Bra for 60%.  I had purchased one a few months ago on the clearance rack for about the same price and it is AMAZING, especially if you are well endowed like me ;)
 I then headed over to borders to use my 50% off coupon.  I had two and the lady let me use them both so I was able to get two books for Christmas presents for under $15 w/tax!

After that it was over to Macy's which was a ZOO.  Totally not in anyway a good shopping experience.  I persevered however because I wanted to use my $10 off of $25 coupon.  Good thing I did because I found someone (can't mention the name) and awesome dress shirt regularly $70 for $10 and then a $60 tie for $15, with my coupon I paid $15 for both!

Then off I went to Lowes to pick up a couple $.98 poinsettias (they are so pretty) and then over to the Leesburg Outlets.

I got some amazing deals at the outlets.  Some super cute ecco shoes priced at $125 for $40.  A few years ago I'd seen something similar at Marshalls and decided not to buy them.  I kept thinking about them and when I went back not there.  I was so happy to find these b.c I was still always searching for my shoes at Marshalls!

 My favorite purchase was an amazing deal on something we waited for over 6 years for.  I can't wait to use it.  I'll have to wait until after Christmas though, b/c it was delivered to Paul to wrap and put under the tree.  Drum Roll...A Le Crueset Dutch Oven Pot for $99!  That is the cheapest I've ever seen them, I was so excited!

I also got some fun deals at the williams sonoma outlet: I'm pretty excited about this little make your own salad dressing gadget for $6.

Lots of other stores were having great deals too.  Ann Taylor outlet, Tommy Hilfiger outlet both had 40% off everything and Banana Republic had 50% off everything!

So go shop and share your deals with me!
