This morning we took our time and slept in. I was not in a huge rush to go to the mall. We had to go to Ross Park Mall. I had a gift card to L.L Bean to get a new winter coat, and a Macy’s gift card to get Chanel foundation. They stopped selling Chanel at the Macy’s in Robinson, so it is a bit of inconvenience to drive to Ross Park. I was up for an adventure. We were hoping to get a good Black Friday deal on my winter coat, as well.
When we arrived at the mall, we had a tough time finding a parking spot. There were cars parked along the side of the curb, near the grass, and on the grass. Some people created their own parking spaces. It was so crazy! I forgot about the parking. Drew finally found a space. We saw a couple getting into their car to leave. We were able to pull right in. They took a little while to leave, but once they did half the battle was over.
When we arrived inside of Macy’s, I approached the Chanel counter first and bought my foundation. The makeup lasts me a long time, so I probably won’t need it anymore until next year or the year after.
After Macy’s we went to L.L Bean. There is no interior entrance from the mall to L.L Bean, so you have to go outside and then enter L.L Bean. it is a weird set up. Once inside, they were having a 20% off all L.L. Bean merchandise, which works out perfectly! I was able to find a coat that liked. It was the one I saw online when I was first looking at winter coats. Andrew also got a vest. He wanted this for Christmas. It was so cute he asked me to wrap it up when we got home.
When we left L.L Bean, we went back inside the mall and then got a drink at the Wigle Whiskey place. I am not a whiskey drinker, but I know Drew is and I thought he deserved to treat himself. He was being such a good sport coming out on Black Friday with me. I thought my drink was okay, but it wasn’t the greatest.
After the whiskey, we stopped at Yankee Candle and stocked up on some Christmas candles. They were having a sale. If you buy three jars, then you get three jars free. We were all set for Christmas scents.
After Yankee Candle, we made our way back to Macy’s to leave. I found a cute pair of pink and black Nikes. I was desperately in need of new tennies. They didn’t have my size. When we got to the car, I ordered them online and had them shipped to the store. They were only $30 dollars! I love Black Friday.
When we got home, Drew went to the gym and I did some laundry. We decorated for Christmas in the evening, as well.
There she is the Hornyak family Christmas tree. I love all the ornaments that we have collected over the years.
Our house is officially ready for Christmas.
