One Week To Go...

Until my due date that is... and boy am I getting big. Here are two pictures for comparison. One is last Wednesday at 38 weeks and one is today at 39 weeks...

38 Weeks

39 Weeks

My belly is growing out of control! But I'm almost there... almost to the goal I set for myself. Not having this baby until AFTER Black Friday. Yup, that's right people. I'm the crazy pregnant lady who is counting down the days not till my due date and the arrival of my next little bundle of joy but till the day when everything is on sale and everyone is out shopping. Such a rush, so much fun, and so many presents to purchase!

I already have my list written even though the ads haven't "officially" come out yet. With the help of bfads.net I've been able to scope out the deals I want to snag at Target, Macys, and maybe a few at Gymboree, The Children's Place and Nordstroms. I have a gift card to Macys, Gymboree & Nordstroms which makes it 100x better this year!

My plan is to head out to Target first (not sure on the time... depends on when I wake up but probably closer to 5-6am vs. their opening time of 4am). Than I'll head over to UTC mall for their stores. Joseph will probably meet me over there with Ethan so he can get some shopping in too. After that I want to go to a baby store that's supposedly having a sale to see if I can get an Ergo newborn insert for cheaper than retail. And THAN if I'm not tired and wiped out I really want to hit up Joanns for some fabrics and notions. I still want to make a crib skirt/dust ruffle for the baby's crib and a blanket to match the nursery colors. 

The one thing I really want to treat myself to this year is a new food processor. The one I have was a hand-me-down from my grandmother a few years back after she got herself a shiny new one so I think it may be time for an upgrade. Macy's has one on sale for $69.99. Plus they have a $10 off your purchase of $50 or more on select departments (including sale items) so if the food processor qualifies I could use my $50 gift card, $10 off coupon and pay $10 out of pocket. See the potential for a great deal??

So enough about my Black Friday plans... what are you excited for??

Didn't get the food processor but we did get a (much needed) toaster oven for a really good deal. Santa also got Ethan's Christmas gift on sale too :)
