Shopped til we dropped!!

Ever since the outlet centers started doing Midnight Madness (opening up at midnight on Thanksgiving night) a few years ago, I've been going!!

My friend, Mimi, and I would head out to the VF Outlets for hours and hours. At around 2am, we'd get a $2 breakfast in the food court!! At the end of our "night", we'd redeem our receipts for a free Christmas wreath!! Can't beat a free wreath on top of tons of great deals!! Usually, I would have to be home by around 6:30am so Chris could get off to work. I walked in the house last year as he was showering! Chris did not have to work Black Friday this year, you know what that means!!

My besties Misty and Jen drove down from the Williamsport area to take part in the festivities!! Misty picked Jen up in Muncy around 10pm. I enthusiastically greeted them at the door around 12:30am and we headed off to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets this year!! We would meet up with Mimi, who, with her sister in law, went at 10pm. Seems as if the rest of the Philly suburbs decided to hit up those outlets! We got within a mile of our exit and into a standstill. As we finally made our way into the parking lot, we saw the creativity of some eager shoppers. Not only were cars were parked at ends of aisles where there were not spots, but they somehow got up over the curbs and parked in the grassy areas, some with their tires hanging partly over the curbs! I had my plan of attack, though. I just kept taking rights to get to the back of the parking lot. It worked. We ended up pulling up to a car as they were loading up to leave. We got a nice close spot too!

So, we shopped and shopped, made out with some really great deals and a few pairs of socks! Misty weighed in at 12 pairs of socks for herself! Columbia and Bass were the front runners, as usual! We fueled our search for deals with a stop into Lindt and their peanut butter Lindor Truffles (so NOT on the diet!) and a shared Nathan's hot dog! Mmmm, mmmm, good!! Got to see a high school friend while she was working at the Hanes store!! The news crews were there but we weren't lucky enough to be interviewed. That would've slowed us down anyway!!

We finished up there about 7 hours later, hands all cramped from carrying our bags. Biceps and hips just burning!! We headed back towards home and refueled at the Breakfast Hut (the best breakfast spot in Exeter/Mt. Penn area!), then headed into Boscov's for some more deals! Next was the VF Outlets. We scored a ton of deals including a $6.42 pair of jeans for the angel tree at Jack's school and a $4.42 soft flannel shirt for my dad! Spent a few hours there, Misty bonded with some of the mannequins while Jen bought her hubby some of his "dress" clothes!

It is now around 1pm ish. We headed to KMart for a bit, which was a bit of a disappointment. Everything that I wanted from there must've been a doorbuster that was not offered at that time of the day. Bummer!! We still made some purchases. Got a text from the hubby telling me that he thought I might consider heading home now! ha! I told him to order up some pizzas and we'd pick them up on the way.

So, we wandered in the house around 4pm, after 15 hours of shopping!! Gave the fam some hugs, had some pizza then went to relax in the family room! Misty and Jen were passed out on the couches at 6pm. Tucked the kids in bed at 7:45 then hit the bed myself and passed out while Chris was working on his homework!!

What fun!! So happy that the 3 of us could hang out!! Hoping the work schedule works out the same next year!! Glad that this is a once a year event as well. I don't know if my 35 year old hips can handle it more than once!! What a workout!!

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures! We were much to busy for that!!
