I would be remiss if I did not dedicate this Fashion Forward Friday post to Black Friday.  Whether you love it or hate it, Black Friday is a tradition for many.  After spending Thanksgiving stuffing your face with turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, cornbread sausage stuffing, and pumpkin pies, what better way to walk off the calories than with a blood pumping, mall walking shopping experience the day after!?

My mom and I venture out to the Outlets to do our post-Thanksgiving shopping.  We’ve been doing it for a good four years now, including when I was 7 months pregnant!  Talk about a great cardio work out there.  After our big food fest, we sit down at the kitchen table with our coffee and a slice of pie, pore over our lists and rifle through the holiday savings circulars.  After we figure out who we are buying for, we set budgets, pick out gifts, and decide on our store shopping schedule.  This year we’re heading out early on Friday morning, and will break up the shopping by a lunch trip to Lenny & Joe’s in Westbrook.  The best part is when it’s all over and the dust settles on our day; we sit back down with a plate of Thanksgiving leftovers (and more pie) to add up the savings on our receipts.  We are able to get “WOW” factor gifts for discount store pricing.  What a rush!!!!

So what are your Black Friday plans?  By the time you read this I will hopefully already be waiting in line at a register at Clinton Crossing…
