My Thanksgiving and what I'm currently doing...

Oh man, you guys. I am so exhausted! As many of you were enjoying a glorious four day holiday vacation I was working up a storm! My store opened at 12:01 am on Black Friday and didn't close until 10pm that night. I worked from 11:00pm on Thanksgiving evening to 4:00 am Friday morning then again at 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. Now, that makes for a long day!

Our Black Friday was verrrrrrry successful though. So successful that I got a call from my regional manager (whom I have only spoken with twice) to congratulate me!

Besides work, I do not have very much to talk about lately. I'm boring! So, I thought I would steal this cute meme from Lisa's Yarns!

Current Book(s):
I am still reading Kate Brian's Private series. I just finished the last book in the series, Suspicion and am now starting Last Christmas, which is a prequel that came out a year ago. After this I'm hoping to pick up The Lovely Bones before the movie comes out.

Current Music:
Christmas music!! During this time of year my radio is always tuned to the Christmas station. I am also loving Lady Gaga. Every single she releases I just love! I really need to buy her album.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:
Lately, it's regular Pepsi. Usually I am a die hard diet soda drinker (moderately, of course) but my family had regularly Pepsi available at Thanksgiving and since then I have been craving one almost every day - and obviously, I have given in to that craving!

Current Colors:
Plum purple. It's so pretty! I really want a coat that color!

Current Obsessions:
Christmas decorations -- I just can't get enough! :)

Current Drink:
Pepsi... see above!

Current Song:
Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. I just love it!

Current Movie:
The Blind Side. Cy and and saw it last night and I absolutely adored it! If you haven't seen it, you should go!

Current TV Shows:
I haven't really watched any tv lately. I'm so, so behind on all my shows!

Current Wish-List:
Black Uggs that zip up the back, they are SOO cute! A cute house with a fenced in back yard so Zeke can run around.

Current Needs:
Someone to come deep clean my apartment. I can't seem to get it clean enough lately!

Current Triumph:
Beating last year's Black Friday sales by $15,000. Yes, you read that right. $15,000! Total craziness...

Current Bane of my Existence:
My irritating, impossible work schedule. It does not leave much time for a social life!

Current Goal:
To eat healthier through the holidays...

Current Indulgence:
Pepsi (and the occasional chocolate)

Current Blessings:
I am so blessed right now and am so thankful! My crazy family, amazing boyfriend and supportive friends. I'm a lucky girl!

Current Slang or Saying:
Hmm... I'm sure I have one, but I can't think of one right now!

Current (Fav) Outfit:
Black turtleneck with buttons going down the side and dark skinny jeans with boots. My favorite boots that Cy calls my "pirate boots"... Men! They just don't get it.

Current Excitement:
I have this Sunday off and I'm SUPER pumped! I hate working Sundays!

Current Mood:
Honestly? This is unfortunate but I'm kind of grumpy. I'm looking forward to relaxing on the couch for the rest of the night! I blame it on my hectic weekend! ;)

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
