Turkey day + a winner!

We have a winner folks!

I'm very pleased to announce that Malo, from Life Feels Good in Portbail Beach, has won my blogiversary giveaway!

Congratulations Malo!  I've already sent you an e-mail all about it.

On that very wonderful note, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

We had a lot of fun being around family and friends with bellies too full and our days packed with things to do.

We tried to do some Black Friday shopping.  By "tried" I mean we went to Best Buy to get an extremely good deal on a desktop computer.  We even waited in line for about 15 minutes (long time, I know!) until the store opened.  When we got in the store we looked everywhere for this computer deal.  We asked someone and apparently our deal was a doorbuster deal and we needed to get handed a ticket in line for it.  We were no where near the front of the line so of course we didn't get this ticket.  I was pretty upset.


So instead we went to Walmart - we were already awake - and bought a few $2 movies.  I love Walmart for that reason.

We actually ended up finding a desktop computer the next morning from a local second hand computer shop called Second Time Around Computers.  The deal was a MUCH better deal than Best Buy had and we got a sweet custom built computer. I'll show pictures later, promise!

The rest of the weekend was spent hiking around with family, eating out at a few places with said family, and I even went mall shopping on BLACK FRIDAY with my 9-month pregnant friend (all her idea).

We hiked around Deception Pass for the first time this weekend.  It's such a beautiful area!

It was an awesome weekend.

How was yours?


  1. Haha! I love that ecard!

    Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Deception Pass is absolutely beautiful. My former employer rewarded a few members of our staff for good performance by taking us on a cruise on his yacht, and we got to go under the bridge - such a neat perspective and one of my favorite memories.

    And happy blogiversary! :)

  2. Sounds like a great holiday! Congrats on the new computer!

  3. Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving and yay for your new computer!

  4. I was way too cold to hike this weekend. We talked about going to Silver Falls, but I am a baby and just laid under a blanket instead.

  5. Oh, dang! I didn't win! Haha. Oh well. Congratulations to the winner! And I'm so glad you guys had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  6. Walmart is the store I do my black friday shopping too :) only because they honor other stores prices, hopefully they don't change that next year. but all you have to do is bring in the other stores ad, that's how i got 2 copies(& they had tons more) of the brave DVD for $10 each :)
