Four Generations of Women & Black Friday Traditions #MyKindOfHoliday

Check out the awesome Black Friday deals only @Target!

The Black Friday of tradition of breakfast and then shopping with my mother, grandmother, and sister started years ago.  We used to get up super early, meet up at my mother's house, and then head off to Panera for the annual pre-shopping breakfast at our local Panera.  There we would plan out the strategy- which stores we would hit first, which deals and sales were the must-haves, who would search for what, and where we would meet after.

Our Black Friday breakfast date and shopping adventures have taken on much less urgency over the past couple of years.  It has become more about the tradition and the time we spend together.  Sleep the morning of has taken a little more of a priority as well. ;) The 6am breakfast time has gradually been pushed back to a 9am start time for this coming Friday.  (I am not complaining!)

The deals are still important, of course.  But what is most important is the time spent and the memories made with the ladies of my family.  And this year will be the very first year that not three, but four generations of females in my family will be attending the annual Black Friday breakfast and shopping tradition. :)  This will be the first year that my 22 month old baby girl will be going with us.  
I am looking forward to spending time with my family and to carrying on the tradition.  But I am also looking forward to hopefully snagging a few of the awesome Black Friday deals at Target!
