Too cute! Loved the game!
That SUCKS @ Blackberry...I would have never thought to suspend my phone #. Hope you find it soon OR get one that is even better than the last! :o)

Very nice @ extra gift card and 30% @ LYS. Not to mention your ROCKIN' SOCK PACKAGE getting good mail like that makes up for everything!!

And I love that pepperment G candy! Yum!

Well, after your day yesterday, I am so glad they were waiting for you! Sorry to hear about your Blackberry too!

Squee they fit!! I was so nervous as the pattern called for it to end then or be too big for you! *wipes sweat off brow*

Those are GORGEOUS socks. Fun game -- I can't imagine how tired you must have been. Sorry about your blackberry. Have fun resting up so you can get back into the rush next week -- wearing those socks, you'll probably be able to leap tall buildings.

I'm tired just reading about your day! Is the blackberry officially gone?

Sorry about the Blackberry, but holy cow woman! That was some SERIOUS shopping!

Fab socks and swap score! Lucky girl!

Reminds me of how I thought I had dropped my VISA card in the parkade the other day...hopefully your blackberry will show up; check between the driver's seat and the console.

What great socks and I love the bag and matching yarn!

Love the bag and the sock yarn, and those pretty red socks... you really did luck out.

Your Black Friday activities take astounding dedication. 3:30 am? Wow. You wouldn't be able to get me out of bed before 6 unless I were giving birth or something.

Sorry about the Blackberry ordeal.

Wow, you're braver than me. I lock the doors and lower the blinds on Black Friday.

Phooey re: Blackberry :(

The Embossed Leaves are lovely. And pretty pirate is so . . . pretty.

Balck Friday made me sick!!! I sat in front of Staples from 10 pm to 6 pm when the store opened to get a laptop. But now I am sick!! But atleast I got a noce laptop.
