The Difference Between Jodi and Me

One week from today.  Black Friday.

The difference between Jodi and me.

Jo and Jacq

Jodi …

yawning071204

Waking up at the crack of dawn…

Christmas shopping lines

… to fight the crowds…

Christmas shopping Target 

… to get the deal …

Christmas parking

… if she’s lucky enough to get a parking space.

Me …

Sleeping

Sleeping in (I value my beauty sleep!) …

Online shopping

… a little online Christmas shopping in my PJs …

 Hot Cocoa

… a cup of hot cocoa …

 Christmas ornament

… maybe I’ll put up the tree …

ChristmasBanner2

… and enjoy a few Christmas movies on TV!!  And never leave the house.

Which one are you?

I'm definitely you!!! No way Jose am I going to Walmart the day after Thanksgiving or any other retailer if I can help it. Been there, done that, too old or should I say no patience!! Now, I will have to say my girls and I usually go to a unique gift shop in our home town mainly to visit with everyone that has come home for the holidays.

I am so you! I was at Best Buy this week and he asked if I was coming for Black Friday - I was horror stricken at the thought. :) blessings, marlene

Just for the record I would never venture out on black friday in the much larger towns around us like Mtn. Home or even Harrison. Flippin (ONLY)is the Black Friday shopping place for my fam and me! Which if you're not familar with Flippin that only includes Wal-Mart. Seeing the sun rise and drinking coffee and laughing with my sister as she picks me up at 4:00 am is the best ever. Jodi

That, ladies and gentleman, is my BFF, Jodi - coming out of "lurking"!! She's right though, about Flippin. But the 4 AM time is the deal-breaker for me. Just saying. Thanks for the comment, JoJo!!

I'm more like you. I don't venture on Black Friday. I really do not like crowds at all.

You'll never see me lined up at a store even if they were giving away stuff the day after Thanksgiving!

HOWEVER, I do love to look and put my hands on stuff, look it over and then stroll down to another store and look BEOFRE I buy. I like to see things in REAL LIFE, not on-line......although there's nothing wrong about that!!!

Really, I have done both...but I'm the old-fashioned shopper! See it...buy it...wrap it up!

Kelly said...

I am you!!!! Never been black Friday shopping and NEVER plan to. No thanks!
I am more of an on-line shopper!

Betsy said...

Oh my gosh....I am TOTALLY 100% with YOU!!!!! I cannot stand going out into those crowds on the day after Thanksgiving. I think I'd rather have a root canal seriously!! :) Hanging out at home with my pj's on and just watching some Christmas movies...putting up the tree...chilling out...yep, that's the only way to go for me!

FOR SURE THE ONE WHO NEVER LEAVES THE HOUSE TO FIGHT THE CROWDS!!! I love the Christmas season...EXCEPT for the shopping and the crazy people, like Jodie, :) who fight for parking places, etc.! Your version--hot chocolate and a laptop--sounds sooooo much better!

No black Friday. Although it's probably more pleasant than my 12/23 shopping spree. Kristin

I will have to say that I have shopped like Jodi!! It was especially funny last year when my husband and son decided they wanted to go with me. I think for me that was probably my most favorite shopping trip ever!!

I used to be the serious shopper, but now I hate it. I prefer to sleep in and be lazy! We actually just put up our tree tonight which is great since we'll be traveling this year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

That's so funny! I'm with you except I never sleep in, but I shop online or at the VERY LAST MINUTE!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! Sorry it took me so long to make it over here to yours! I am a procrastinator at heart, I guess.

I am definitely like you when it comes to Black Friday. There is NOWHERE I'd rather be less than in the stores being shoved around by frantic shoppers. Ick!
