    I had a similar shopping experience today, only on a smaller scale, not in a shopping mall. It’s too early to do Christmas food shopping so why is everyone buying so much? I don’t know.
    Great recipes, as usual, I am going to have a closer look now:)

      I didn’t want to go, but I was in a bind. And I wasn’t even Christmas shopping! I was looking for birthday gifts. Would you believe there were 4 birthdays for my family to celebrate this week alone?! Next time, spread out the births, people! ?

    It’s good that I didn’t put any budget for this month or else I’d be stuck in the mall, too. πŸ˜€ I did, however, online shopping. It is better in many ways. πŸ˜‰ Happy FF, Angie. I am glad that I am back. See you around. x

  3. I hate people and especially stupid people at the malls during Christmas. That is why Amazon is my best friend. I had my fill on BF at Cabellas buying something for my son, 4 trips and about 5 hours. Ugh!! That is my shopping trip for the year. Can you tell I’m bitter. :))-

    On the other hand I have all my Christmas shopping done and the decorations up inside and out. Most of my December blog posts are ready to go, plus 20 batches of English toffee done and ready for sale. Yes, I am available to be Rent a Husband. Happy FF ladies!!!

    • Angie says:

      Me, too, Quinn! I hate stupid people, too! Especially the ones who are getting their 7 yr old an IPhone 7! I’m really really bitter about that, lol! Seriously, I’m only on iPhone 6S, cmon now. Anyway, my husband said he would love to Rent a Friend if you’re available ??

  4. Hi Angie, it’s my pleasure to co-host at Fiesta Friday and with sweet Jhuls. I promise to be back next year from my long break πŸ™‚
    Enjoy your weekend and try to relax! πŸ™‚ xx

  5. Antonia says:

    Yes, I agree…too many people! I am very thankful for Amazon πŸ˜‰ Everything looks delicious and I adore those truffles!

  6. Thank you for this party, Angie! I wish you a wonderful weekend!

    hi Angie
    I went in to London the other day and the Christmas frenzy has started already! I escaped in to the nearest bar for some Dutch courage and by the time I built it up to go out again I fell in to a restaurant next door! Too many people shopping can be a fearsome experience!
    Thank you for the feature, it made my day and I feel so honored!

    • Angie says:

      And it seems the season starts earlier and earlier. Sometimes even before Thanksgiving! I guess Christmas is what people have been waiting all year ? We love all your creative recipes, Petra. You’ve got a fan club over here ??

  8. I hear ya! Online only shopping for me πŸ™‚ I need those sugar cookie truffels ASAP! Gorgeous features! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy FF!

  9. I try to avoid the mall as much as possible in general. Although we did go to Target on Black Friday on the way back from picking up our Christmas tree and it was surprisingly quiet, but I guess it’s not your major present store. Thanks so much for the feature this week, I could do with another of those caipirinhas tonight I think!

    • Angie says:

      We did some BF shopping at Target, too! And you’re right, it wasn’t very crowded so we got everything we wanted. Just a few years ago, we were stuck in a long line just to get in! Your caipirinha sounds so delicious!! I will have to give it a try! ?

  10. Michelle says:

    I love Amazon!
    I think it’s been over 5 years since I’ve stepped foot in a mall.
    I love that my shopping is done (other than taking the kids to buy each other a present)!
    Happy FF Angie!

    • Angie says:

      That’s great, Michelle! I’d be happy if I can do everything online ? Somehow, though, I always have to do a last-minute shopping! I need to be more organized! ? Happy FF, girlfriend! ?

  11. Loretta says:

    The mere thought of all those throngs of people puts me right off. But with so much that can be ordered online just after Thanksgiving, it’s a wonder the malls are still in operation. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend Angie.

    • Angie says:

      I’m with you, Loretta! I think the youngsters keep these malls going. They LOVE going there! My daughter always meets up with friends at the mall. They shop a little, then get a bite, walk around etc. At least that’s what I assume they do ? Happy FF & weekend, Loretta ?

  12. Hi Angie – those Christmas truffles look so good!! I am happy to co-host again – keep me posted alongside other volunteers!

  13. Sandhya says:

    I am also fearful of the way people drive in the parking lots of the malls! It is crazy for sure. Drooling over all the yummy posts here and I am posting a figure friendly dal! How crazy is that?
    I would be happy to co-host this week, if you still need someone.

    • Angie says:

      Figure friendly recipe?! I’m right there! I need to lose a few pounds right now so I can gain them back at Christmas ?? And yes, I still need a cohost, so you’re it! Actually, I still need another one, too. Would you volunteer to twist someone’s arm to be your partner? Lol, I’ll see what I can do. I’ll let you know if I find you a partner.

  14. I probably visit the mall twice a year – and anything past November 20th through the beginning of January is right out! Not a crowd person. Much more appreciate Cyber Monday (or Small Business Saturday — although i try to do that one at different times.)

    • Angie says:

      If I can keep my mall visits to a zero, I’d be happy ? Unfortunately with two teenagers it’s hard to NOT go there. But at least I usually reward myself with something to eat ?

  15. Paula says:

    Malls: the bane of my existence. I only go if I need to and if there’s nowhere else to get what I need. I go in. I find the store. I buy. I leave. Actually, the only things I enjoy shopping for are books, greeting cards, office supplies and pantry/fridge items to cook with.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and ‘liking’ a recent post. Eat hardy!

Talk to me, people!
