Almond bark is a candy coating we can buy here in the States.
It comes in white chocolate or milk chocolate. You simply melt it in the microwave and dip fruits, nuts and make candies and such with it. Tasty!!!

For the first time, ever in my life, my husband and i went shopping early in the morning on Black Friday. WE got up around 3am, and went to JC Penney. They opened at 4am, and we had such a good time. WE each received a mickey mouse snowglobe when we walked in the door. WE did some shopping, then went out to breakfast. WE also needed to hit the grocery store, so we did that too, and were home for the rest of the day at 8am. Although we were both very tired later that day, it was a fun experience.

It's a tradition with the girls in my family, so yes we went....What a wonderful time, and the only long line was Target....Walmart's midnight sale helped a lot with crowds and we were able to move on....Memories made and tons of laughter....

I waited until the afternoon to venture out to the stores here. We live in a small town (a few thousand people), so it never gets really crowded during the day, but you might have to wait a while in line to get out. I went to K-Mart, Dollar General, Fred's, & Family Dollar. I got two pair of shoes for my grandmother, candy for Dad's stocking, dishtowels for "extra gifts", a picture frame, Christmas yard picks for Mom, batteries & an extension cord. DD got a Barbie outfit for her dolls.

This was the first Black Friday in about... 10 years I think, that I didn't go out shopping and I think I'm all the better for it.

I went with my sister and mom at 4 am. It was only the 2nd time I've ever been. We had a really great time. We started at Target, which had the longest line, but it went quickly. Then we went to Kohls, WalMart, stopped for breaskfast and finished with Macy's and the Gap.

I finished my shopping and had a really fun time! The lines were small everywhere else, and everyone was very pleasant.
