Saturday Shopping

Yesterday was Black Friday.  Did you get up early to take advantage of sales, or stay far away from the stores? We avoided the shops on Friday, knowing the parking lot and checkout lines would be crazy.  But we did do a little shopping today.  

Why does Blogger have this habit of turning some of my pictures sideways, like the one above? I can't figure out how to flip it back the way it should be. Thanks Blogger, but I want landscape, not portrait.

Anyway, my personal jeans, red flats, purple tights, blue nail polish, blue belt, and some new eyeshadow. I feel a bit weird buying for myself at this time of year.  However, since my birthday is coming up, I did treat myself to a few items.

When I got home, I checked the mail and found this...

As if the day didn't already feel like Christmas, I received my copy of The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet that I won from Kimmy, of the Vegan Conversion Challenge blog.  Thank you so much, Kimmy! The burger recipes look awesome and I can't wait to try them out.

For dinner we heated up some leftovers.  Then, while Tony got a fire going, I made some Eggless Eggnog (from How It All Vegan).

I have to say I like this recipe better than any of the store-bought vegan eggnogs I've tried.  It takes only a minute to throw together, and I sweeten it with stevia, so I don't feel bad about drinking a lot of empty calories.

Jackson doesn't care about calories, he just loves some tasty eggnog. Even more yummy because he helped me make it! 

Have a lovely evening! We're going to.


  1. Great purchases! I've been buying waaaay too much for myself...I'm about 3/4 of the way done with gifts but I definitely need to stop shopping for myself and finish my holiday gifts. I hate that it is so stressful. I only want to do gifts for the babies and everyone agrees but still buys gifts so I know that I have to shop for everyone anyway. Tis the season lol.

  2. I avoid black Friday too, but shopped on Saturday. Will have to try that eggnog! Happy Sunday:)

  3. I bet that book has some awesome veggie burgers! You'll have to share what's good! The eggnog sounds good too :)

  4. I don't know if I've ever shopped on Black Friday. I guess I'm too lazy. You got cute stuff.
