Black Friday Blog Hop

Happy Black Friday Everyone!! For my part of the hop I interviewed two people about their Shopping habits on this shopping Holiday. I hope you enjoy!!



1. What do your kids have to have this year?

Khelsey - They are into Barbie and My Little Pony.

Leslie- They desperately need more clothes. I swear….I think they grow an inch every week…lol.

Emily- I don’t have kids, but I do have five nephews and one on the way. Not sure what they are getting yet.

2. Do you have a black Friday strategy or do you avoid it

Khelsey – I don’t shop on that day!

Leslie- I can’t stand being jam packed in stores and trying to fight to get the last things on the shelves. The traffic is terrible on black Friday and it takes twice as long to get where you’re going. Therefore, I keep my happy butt at home.

Emily- I am with you ladies, I hate being claustrophobic! 

3. What do you want for Christmas this year?

Khelsey - I want a Kindle Fire!

Leslie- I just want people to like my book!!! That would be the best Christmas present ever!!!

Emily- I have no idea what I want! 

4. What is your favorite store to find deals from?

Khelsey – I don’t really shop at stores, I shop online

Leslie-  love The Gap, and any kind of deal from there is what I pounce on. It’s a good thing you can still get black Friday deals online. :):)

Emily- ULTA! I love makeup!! Sales there is like Christmas anytime of the year.

5. What do you eat the most of during the holidays?

Khelsey – Pie!! Any kind will do!

Leslie- I would have to say HAM. Everywhere I look there is leftover ham. But I can’t forget the goodies either. My mom makes the best fudge ever and she only makes it this time of year, so I have no choice but to indulge. :):)

Emily- Squash Casserole! I love it.

  11. Trix

    Fun interview–thanks for participating!


  13. Carla

    I’m not a Black Friday shopper. I don’t believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

  15. micheleann oboyle

    enjoyed the interview and for me black friday is fun cause as much as their is chaos you never know what is going on in my area they do a gift card giveaway to 250 people

  17. April

    I do not like crowds so BF shopping is not for me! I will be spending my day hopping and then snuggled up reading! Well that is after I decide on what new book I have just added to my to be read list! It gets longer every hop! Thanks!

    I am thankful for all the wonderful books I am finding on the hop!

  33. Kandy Tyler

    I enjoyed the interviews.

  35. The_Book_Queen

    I’m totally jealous–I want some good leftover HAM! None of my family makes ham, no idea why, as we love it, too, but the turkey gets all the attention around here. I’m so tempted to pick one up from like the Honey-Baked Ham store or something!


  37. Shadow

    Thank you for the blog hop.


  43. bn100

    no BF shopping

    Thanks for participating.

    This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can’t handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I’m finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

    I also try not to shop on Black Friday, though I did go to Walmart but that was at 9am and the parking lot was only 10% full. No lines, No waiting.

  53. Jo

    I haven’t done any Black Friday shopping yet – I only left the house this morning to take my daughter and her friends to a movie (Rise of the Guardians was lots of fun!). Thanks for being in the hop!

  55. Rachelle Cox

    This hop has been the best way to spend black friday. I stay home and shop online because shopping shouldn’t be a contact sport.

    Thanks for participating in the hop! Happy Holidays!


  85. Marlena Fein

    Love the interviews. I see so many people talk about how they despise Black Friday (as I do as well) and it makes me wonder why it is still so crowded? LOL

    Thanks so much for being a part of the hop and for the giveaway.

    Happy Holidays,

  87. Charlene A. Wilson

    I stuck to the web today instead of braving the crowds. ;) Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love Black Friday shopping, but this year I waited until the store was almost empty and I still got all the specials on my list. I live in a small town and even though there are a couple hundred people in Wal-Mart, most are friendly and they even say excuse me when they push you to get to what they want. I would never shop in the places they show in the news, way too scary., but in my town, I try to go every year.


  91. Tammy Turner

    I do like to shop on Black Friday, but the last few years I have found better sales, No lines, No rude people, and free shipping on Cyber Monday.

  93. Caitlin
