Friends, if there is one thing you should know about me, it's this:
I love shopping.
High on my list of things I am thankful for, this and every Holiday Season, are: Shop Owners, Product Designers, Fashion Stylists, Directors of Soft Goods, and Target. (duh.)
Our family isn't big on Black Friday shopping, but the handful (or less) of times that we've participated, it's been f-u-n FUN!!
So...when I found out that one of the perks of being an Inner Circle member would be the option to participate in the Target Black Friday Weekend Scavanger Hunt (or as Maggie calls it, a "Havensgir Skunt!"), I was like, Word. I'm in!! What better way to burn off all those Thanksgiving calories? All weekend, we've been asked to take pictures of the deals and gift ideas we find at Target, and share them on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. We'll be using the hashtags #TargetBlackFriday and #TargetInnerCircle. We'll be competing to win: whoever posts the most pictures at the end of the day on Saturday, gets an awesome prize!!
And to get ready for what could only be the most fun Target Black Friday EVER, I have been supplied with a "Survival Kit" to help get me through the crowds and onto the fun! Inside my trusty Target shopping tote, I'll be carrying the shopping essentials, like:
- Extra shopping totes
- Starbucks VIA Pumpkin Spice Latte mix
- A Pen and Notepad
- Trident Gum
- A hefty bottle of h2o
- a Luna bar + fruit snacks
in addition to these, I will be customizing my kit with some additional items:
- Hand sanitizer
- iPhone, headphones, Holiday music on my iTunes and of course, the Target App!
- my battery iPhone charger
- Visine (you know I'll be fresh off a couple glasses of wine, people!)
- a copy of my victory speech, because I plan on winning this challenge! WOOT!!
Since I will be doing the first leg of my shop-a-thon in my hometown of Silverdale, WA, I have requisitioned my reluctant husband to come along as my assistant. Frankly, I am concerned I might not have made the right choice...he's a little, how should I put this....crowd averse? I should probably put some additional items into the kit just for him, like maybe some Zanax? :D
Oh, and just for fun, I might have an impromptu giveaway during my shopping adventures...maybe...and maybe you should follow me on Twitter (@jenniferpebbles) and/or Instagram (instagram.com/jenniferpebbles)...just in case. *winkwinknudgenudge*
Happy Shopping Peeps!! #pebblesftw
