Last week I TOTALLY forgot about my 7 Quick Takes. With the holiday weekend I was soo confused as to what day it was and uh at 1am when the link-up went up I was at the mall….shopping. And for your viewing pleasure a video about the mall:
Moving on…Once I got home from Black Friday shopping I came home and slept from 10am-6pm and totally screwed up my sleep schedule for the rest of the weekend. Oh well it was worth it I saved over 60% on everything I bought. I spent WAY too much money but it was all stuff I’ve been needing for MONTHS! The best part of the evening was in the line waiting to get into Target at 8:30pm (they opened at 9pm). There was this older man in front of us and he was telling everyone in line that his first Black Friday adventure was in 1994 to buy a computer that only had 512MB of RAM but was “top of the line” back then. He was def. a seasoned pro he knew exactly what he wanted and was in and out in less than 30 minutes.
I am I finally finished compiling all the ideas and going through my Advent Reflection books and finished the line up for the #AdventPhotoADay Contest. It actually starts TOMORROW!! I hope everyone will pray about participating. There will be prizes once a week or more depending on how many people participate. And grab the button if you want to when participating:
Here is a little overview of all the tasks:
I tried to give a variety of easy, medium, and hard tasks to get us thinking, praying, and reflecting as we take photos during Advent.

A few weeks ago I ordered free Christmas cards from The Card Store and they finally came!! They kept being delayed due to all the orders they received. I was worried I wouldn’t get them in time for Christmas. Glad they came.
Have you heard that they are creating a spin-off to Boy Meets World? It is called Girl Meets World and it’s about Cory and Topanga’s daughter. I read an article earlier this week that the original actors who played Cory and Topanga will be staring in it. I don’t think it is coming out until 2014 but it’s something to look forward to.
Here is a cool online Advent Calendar by Busted Halo. Well from what I can see it looks cool..you aren’t allowed to look/peak until Sunday. I could be wrong and come Sunday it could be totally lame!
I am going to a Craft fair on Saturday. I’m looking forward to seeing what some of the Vendors are selling. One of the vendors sells these rice heating pads that a girl I work with got. I’m hoping to get one of those and who knows what else! I hope everyone has a great weekend and happy advent!

Hmm, as a Jew your photo challenge will be a challenge… especially considering the fact that we take no pictures in the synagogue on the Shabbat or yamim tovim.
You’re going to make Steven’s day with that show. He loooooves Boy Meets World lol!
How do we participate in the advent photo a day? Post a blog pic every day? Or fb or twitter?

Oh gosh I am so glad you told me about Girl Meets World.. I think that Boy Meets World was my all time favorite show! And how neat that you were able to get free Christmas Cards! Have a wonderful weekend!
Wow, that is great about your mom’s submission! I hope she is published!
I can’t wait for Girl Meets World!!

I am so excited for Girl Meets World! And I don’t know I will be on top of my game enough to participate in the Photo challenge, but I’ll try!
I can’t wait to watch that show 🙂
