Black Friday

So we made it to Black Friday.
I personally am NOT a Black Friday shopper, husband on the other hand thinks it is great fun.
He usually comes home with quite a few unexpected articles.
I am more of a Cyber Monday girl.

I am posting a few snaps of my time in San Francisco.
We had a fabulous trip and San Francisco still stands as one of my top 3 cities to visit.
We spent the first two days in the Berkeley area which I had never visited. 
 I really enjoyed my time there and found it thoroughly interesting.
The next leg of our trip was spent downtown and at the wharf. 
 I got a bit of Christmas shopping done and every meal we had was fabulous.
We spent our last day in Carmel. 
 I always forget what an absolutely charming place Carmel is.
The weather was pretty bad as you can tell from the pictures,
 but we didn't let it spoil our fun one bit.

I also wanted to steer you toward the The Budget Fashionista blog.  There was a recent article on Awesome Bloggers Over 40. 
 Yours truly made the cut,I am number 9.

Are you a Black Friday shopper?

I love all your pictures. I miss the San Fran area so much. Hopefully I'll be living out there again soon. Carmel is beautiful. Hope you are having a wonderful trip.

Great photos. I love traveling, and can't wait to do more once the teens are happy self-supporting adults :)

I will not do Black Friday - stayed in pjs all day. Congrats on being named one of the Top 10 Bloggers over 40.

I'm not much of a Black Friday shopper either. Too many people, too much rush. That type of shopping has never felt fun to me!

Either way, I loved seeing all these photos from San Francisco! I visited the city back in October and fell in love. Looks like an incredibly fun trip!

Black Friday is making its way to Canada but I don't like shopping with huge crowds. Love the photos of you and your hubby with the umbrellas, too cute! I love Cali but have yet to visit San Fran, it's definitely on my wish list!

I barely even left my house on Black Friday, haha. I agree, I am definitely more likely to shop on Cyber Monday!
