My friend Becca started a new Monday meme called Give Me Five Monday. The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here's how it works. Each week, she will put out a random topic from her list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back to her! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn't have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified. Go over to BeccA's Buzz and check it out!
This week's topic is related to Black Friday. You are supposed to list five pet peeves or dislikes associated with shopping. NO problem...

1. Crowds & Rude People
I don't like crowds, especially crowds of people I don't know. I especially don't like the shopping crowds around the holidays. Because, rather than being in the holiday spirit, people get rude, disrespectful, and downright mean. That totally ruins the spirit for me. Is it some unwritten rule that when people are shopping, they must be rude and nasty to each other? I've been run into by carts without any apology to follow, etc.

2. Being Away From Home and the Computer
Yes people, I AM that much of a homebody and honestly that much addicted to my computer.

3. Waking Up
I usually shop with family members who insist that you must be standing outside the doors of the store before they even unlock the doors. Did you know I'm not a morning person? So, since I'm not a morning person, and I don't really enjoy going shopping... this is not a good combination for me.

4. Standing in Cold Weather
This one relates partly to #3. Not only do you have to stand outside the store doors before they are unlocked - this time of year, you are standing outside the doors while the snow and wind is blowing around you and causing you to wonder if you still have ears and a nose attached to your head. I still cannot for the life of me understand why we cannot just sit in the vehicle and wait until we see them open the doors.

5. Decisions
I'm not a fan at making decisions. I'm one of those "whatever you think is fine with me" people. So, I hate trying to make decisions about what I should purchase. I'm just not good at making decisions.

I have to add one more thing here!



Ah, yes. #5. I forgot that one!


If it can't be done online, then it may not be done. I seriously dislike holiday shopping--I'm all wrong, I know! xoxo

PS--get to the beauty secret, I'm waiting!

I love your GM5 list this week! I don't quite understand the standing outside in the cold before the doors open either. Much like you, I am NOT a morning person LOL

I think the more you have to be out shopping, the less you end up feeling the spirit of the holidays, I'm sure the spirit of the holidays leaves out pushy cold early morning shoppers! LOL
Thanks for giving a great list this week!


I would be perfectly happy staying home and not having to go out. I don't think you'll ever catch me standing outside a store in the cold dark of morning waiting for the doors to open.

Very few things bug me (as you probably know by now) but rude people are a definite bugbear.


I hate making decisions too...I guess I just sound like the Grinch today! : )


I am not a cold weather fan either, and I hate to get up early to shop. Okay, I hate to shop. I can't stand rude people and would probably say something, but that's just me. So, you have a great list here. Have a great GM5. :)


oops again this week I forgot to get this give me 5 done...I know what I will be doing tonight...

Decision...don't get me started. I hate making them GRRR!

have a great night


Great list! I wouldn't be caught dead waiting in the cold outside for a store to open! I don't DO Black Friday, anyway but that would definitely be one more reason to not do it for me! LOL!

Mom Knows Everything

I don't do the standing out side of a store before it opens. I'd rather sleep in and pay the extra couple of bucks. Christmas I love, Christmas shopping, not so much. Love Ya Dork!


Oh...btw...I'm totally in love with your pooch at the top of your blog! :) What a cutie! :)


Wow, I am so SORRY that your family is one of those that will wait for the door to the shops to be open for the day. Why? Because I am not a morning person either. :D

I can feel your PAIN having to wait for shops to be opened and in the cold to top it off. And crowd and rude people too. I guess those who us who participated in this week's meme hates holiday shopping crowds.



I love a great reason to go out and shop!! Care to join me? Have a great Tuesday.


I have two words for Black Friday shopping.. No Way!


Long Lines. That's what I'd add to this list. And spending money...Did you hear me squeak when I walk? That's how "tight" I am.
