Five for Friday {11/28}

Happy Five for {Black} Friday!  How many of you went out shopping this morning??  I am not one of those people.  I like my sleep!  And after 8 years of working retail at Staples, I got my fill of 4:00 AM shoppers.

1.  Winter is officially here.  Had my first case of bad driving this week.  It really wasn't a lot of snow, but it was the combination of rain, sleet, and snow that made it challenging.  Made it home safe though!


2.  Got a text from one of my friends that just made my week!  She uses my Calendar Notebook and, apparently, is doing some marketing for me!



3. So thankful for my little family!  Baby Girl had a wonderful first Thanksgiving!



4.  It wouldn't be Cyber Monday without a TpT sale!  That's definitely where I'll be spending most of time (and $$) next week.  My store will be 28% off on Monday and Tuesday.  Don't forget to use coupon code TPTCYBER.  I always forget it at least once!

 5. I've jumped on the Jamberry bandwagon!  I'll admit, I was skeptical at first.  But now I LOVE them!  I never used to do my nails because I would always ruin them in seconds.  Seconds, people.  It was awful.  No drying needed with these (especially helpful when you have a hungry baby)!   Interested in trying them out?  Check out my page - Colorful Apple Jams.  Find me on Facebook too!


In honor of the long weekend, let's have a giveaway!  Up for grabs is a $25 Gift Card to Teachers pay Teachers.  I'll pick a winner on Monday night.  Then you will have all day on Tuesday to shop the sale!  Congrats to our winner, Jen A.!  Thank you all for playing!

  2. I'm so NOT a Black Friday shopper. I slept until 8. I'm so glad I found your blog through the Five for Friday linky! We're practically neighbors. I live in Connecticut, just a little over the state line. I did not love driving on Wednesday afternoon. I counted 4 cars that had slid off the road during my drive home. Have a great weekend!

  6. I did some shopping online last night with some of my birthday gift cards...that's a benefit to having a November birthday... We plan on stopping by a couple places this afternoon, like Old Navy's 50% off sale. Otherwise, I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I prefer spending Thanksgiving with my family and sleeping in the next morning.

  9. Did some online shopping for my niece and nephew. And a few things for me. Only way to shop after Thanksgiving!

    Love your nails...might have to give Jamberry a try. Did gel nails this summer with my niece and while I loved them while they lasted, my fingernails were awful afterward. :-(

  17. My mom and I shopped from midnight to 5 am! It was fun - not too crowded during that time (although still a lot of people!)
    I got some clothes and shoes for myself that I had been looking for - at a great price!

  18. Not a Black Friday shopper, I prefer Cyber Monday. Great way to sit in my pajamas after a long day at school and shop!
