braving black friday

while some of you are just getting ready to head out to toys r us at midnight and target at 5 a.m. to get in your first bit of black friday shopping, i'm looking forward to finally taking a day to sleep in. i know, it's weird for someone with a shopping addiction to not want to go out on black friday, but i'd rather wait a day at home rather than in a checkout line for an hour, or shop online so i don't get trampled by someone grabbing the last zhu zhu pet (that's for you jennifer!)

but for those of you who are up for tomorrow's challenge, i thought i'd put together a few of my favorite local black friday specials that i've seen so far:
