Well we did it... for the first time in our lives Luke and I got up at 4:00am on the Friday after Thanksgiving to go shopping. Luke's mom wanted to purchase a flat panel TV and Walmart was having a ridiculous sale... so Luke and I agreed to go with her.

4:28am and a full pot of coffee... that is the only way LG and I got out the door that morning.

This is not a joke people... look at these people with their hands on TV's to claim them before the shrink wrap has even been cut off of the pallet!!

But we were just as persistent as the other people, and in the end we got one! (I tried to load the video so that everyone could see the pure chaos of 5:00am on Black Friday, but I couldn't get it to load. Thanks Chris for all your help anyways... hopefully I will get it working soon and I will be able to post it.) However, when we got to the car to load the new TV and Stand we realized that Dale and Noelle had left their ENORMOUS double stroller in the trunk of Ms. Donna's car. So the TV and Stand went in the back seat and Ms. Donna and I both squeezed in the front seat.
But we didn't stop there... we proceeded on to Linens n Things, JCPenney, Gamestop, Bath & Body Works, and Rooms to Go all before 8:30am!! Now that is what I call a productive morning.

We seriously could not fit anything else in the car. And of course our wonderful chauffeur was there the entire time. Let me tell you I am a blessed wife to have a husband who will go shopping with his mother and wife at 4:30 in the morning!!

Luke is a treasure of a man to be up and shopping that early. And you people need a bigger car or to remember to get the stroller out before you leave. It looked like you were moving.

That is hilarious! If I had money to spend I would probably have been shopping at that time too.

You go Lukester!! Good job fighting the crowds. There is something fun about getting out early, especially when we can save $$$.
