    Whew! That's a busy holiday! Actually, it seems well planned out. I'm sure you will have a lovely time. The weather that time of year can be absolutely beautiful. I hope it is for you!

    The only thing on your itinerary that I'd never do is the shopping the day after Thanksgiving. The shops are just too wicked crowded for me and I can't stand the push and shove that goes with that day.

    Other than that, your itinerary sounds great!

    That looks awesome!! Do you ship everything you buy back home? I can't imagine lugging all that stuff to the airport!!! I can't imagine being gone for 3 weeks either! I'd hate to see the tab for all of that!!

    Mmmmmmm..................... Sounds absolutely wonderful to me. I love Black Friday but wouldn't attempt it in the car as parking is atrocious then - unless you can get someone to just drop you where you want to be then pick you up later?? Love your plans for 5th December (I feel a touch of green-eye coming on here - lol). Nice to see you've arranged for plenty of villa chill days.

    Did you manage to sort out the bedding arrangements for Beth?

    Would you all advise shopping later in the day on black friday? does not sound like that would be fun with Beth .

    Yes we have sorted the bed issue out, thanks . The villa owner contacted the management team and they said they can put a single bed in the master suite .

    we have 3 cases each at 32kg case not that we could possibly carry that amount, plus dh will be there .

    He has been warned he has to buy my belated birthday present and early christmas present at Tiffany's. He knows there are two things i have my eye on and may need to have both. Thankfully for him they are both silver

    The entire day (after Thanksgiving) will be chaos in the shops, Michelle. Some shops will open as early as Midnight!

    Some are 4:00 am, 6:00 am, etc. Many have specials that run for a short period and people line up to take advantage of those specials. Also, there have been a couple well publicized tramplings of shoppers.

    Nope. You couldn't pay me enough to shop on that particular day.

    My only problem with this?

    You leave 2 days before I get there

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Thats a real shame. I would loved to have met up with some great people from here. Would love to meet you before the flights Piglet .

    Tink would you swap the friday to the saturday for shopping. Is it a tad quieter the day after black friday. I am after clothing bargains.
