Black Friday Wish List

I'm not one of those moms who heads out for Black Friday Shopping with a die hard list of items to buy that I am willing to risk my life over, or stand in the Toys 'R Us parking lot all night for.

I do, however, try to keep a brief list of items to be on the lookout for as I hit the stores on Friday.

1. The perfect pair of flat brown boots.
My annual I {Heart} New York trip will be here in a few short weeks, and if my friend Christy is going to wear her perfect brown flat boots, then darnit, so am I! Just need to find a pair I can squeeze my calves into. They need to be comfortable, because Christy and I are capable of covering large distances in the one day we allot ourselves in the city.

2. Christmas Decor on Sale
This is a given, and should be as easy to spot as the women fighting over the $20 Wii in Wal-Mart.

3. Various Christmas gifts for people who may or may not read this blog.
SuSu, I am 98.9% certain you are reading this, so I refuse to elaborate here. You're getting Tupperware from Goodwill.

4. A new hat to wear on the NYC trip.
As much as I loooove the navy ruffled coat pictured above, a new coat isn't in the budget. So I don't look identical to last year's NYC pictures, a new hat might change things up. Or maybe a ponytail. I don't know.

And that's pretty much it! Most of the time, I end up spotting fun things while I am out. I prefer not having the pressure of "if I don't come home with ___ my life will be over" sort of mentality.

{What's on your shopping list for Friday?}

I am planning on making a knockoff PB ornament garland this weekend, so I'd like to buy the supplies for that. I also want stop by the P. Buckley Moss museum to look at the ornaments. If I can talk Mama into it, we'll go to Rack Room to look at shoes. I want a pretty pair of black dress shoes to wear to Mr. SP's company dance. I'm sure I'll find more than that to buy!

Good luck on finding boots!

Ciao Bella makes boots that come in extended calf sizes. I know, because, sadly I had to buy them. They are comfy and flats! Check them out at DSW, some DSW's don't have them in the stores but they do online! Good luck with your shopping on Friday!

The hat with pink pom poms is really cute! Have fun in New York!
And Friday while you're out fighting the crowds, I'll be lounging around at home in my pajamas :)

I feel you on the calves, sister! Let me know what you find. Happy Thanksgiving!

Zappos has a variety of calf sizes. I hope you find something fabulous for yourself! Have fun shopping.

Love those boots. That's something I'm looking for too. I'm tired of wearing my boots with heels. Gotta find some cute flat ones!

Other than that, toys and a coat for my 13 year old.

I hope you find everything you're on the search for! Can't wait to see what boots you choose. LOVE that Target commercial. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving :)

I havent made the list yet, but because I'm predictable I'll probably come home with tons for me and nothing for gifts. ;) I'm the model of Christmas spirit.

Happy Thanksgiving
Hugs

I'm looking for brown boots, too! Those ones pictured are my favorites I've seen so far...I think they're Steve Madden. Love them!
