Empty Nester Weekend Wrap-Up + Cyber Monday Deals
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Were your kids home? I headed home from balmy Florida on Friday, only to be met by brutal cold in Dallas! But I didnt care! I was so happy to see Bob, our oldest son, and our daughter.
Bob and I spent the weekend shopping the incredible Black Friday deals, and putting up the rest of the Christmas decor! Bob is the best shopper of the Empty Nest Blessed Holiday Gift Guide. (Hes been known to shop the Fathers Day Gift Guide and even the Graduation Gift Guide too! )
As you can see from the (poor quality) photo above, the Cyber Week purchases are already rolling in at our house! Also, in the photo are thebeautiful needlepointstockingsIve told you about multiple times! When our daughter-in-law joined the family two years ago, I decided it was time to replace the old, beat-up stockings and add one for her at the same time. These were so affordable, and I just love them. Theyre from Lands End, and there aremultiple designsavailable at an incredible price right now. Bob and I had such fun picking out just the right one for each person!
Did you shop on Black Friday? Hopefully, you didnt get all crazy at the mall, and stayed home and shopped online with my links instead. We did. Bob had his laptop set up at the kitchen table, and I was in the Empty Nest Blessed International Headquarters (which I am not kidding you is a tiny 39x66 room under the stairs!) and we were both shopping at once. We got so many great deals, yall!
Several of my friends said they didnt want to shop over the weekend because they just wanted to focus on family. I get that!If you didnt shop over the weekend, dont worry! There are epic Cyber Monday deals out there! In many cases, theyre even better than the Black Friday deals. Ive got a comprehensive, organized list for you below, and thepinklinks will take you right to the sites you love. Be sure to use the extra discount codes Im sharing to get the best deal possible! Please note that most of these deals are online only! (Um, since its actually called Cyber Monday and all)
One particular sale you will want to note! Nordstrom is having a HUGE Cyber Monday sale! Items are up to 50% off!!! (Plus free shipping & returns or buy online and pick up in store.) Also, Target is having an amazing sale. (See below for some examples!) Finally, in a first-ever, in like, EVER, Lilly Pullitzer is taking $20 off a $100 purchase. (Thats 20% off, Lilly-lovers!!!)
Finally, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for shopping with me this week! Im so grateful! Also, I want to be brutally honest with you and tell you that I am good and sick of writing about sales. (And Im pretty sure youre good and sick of hearing about them.) I know were all shopping this time of year, and I want to help you with that, but there is SO MUCH MORE to this season than purchasing. While Ill continue to bring you gift ideas for all of the special people in your lives, Im looking forward to sharing some other, meatier content with you too in the upcoming days.
