The Target Girl...

I can't tell you how many times I replay commercials with this girl in them.  I laugh so hard!


I love her.  She makes me smile.  She makes me think of my best friend who loves to shop on Black Friday.

Do you wake up at 3 am to shop on Black Friday?  I do not.  But one year I did.  With my best friends Sasha and Sarah.  I looked like death warmed up and opted for breakfast at our first stop, Target, rather than shopping for a deal.  Sarah and I couldn't wait any longer.  While Sasha had more of a "route" planned, we hung out with our OJ and bagel in the purse section waiting for her to return with all her good deals.



In the end, I think the three of us bought some gloves, a purse and some leggings.  Not quite your typical black Friday purchases.

So, this Friday, I will be sleeping in, with plans to visit a few off the beaten path shops that I know people won't be knocking down doors to get in.  I might even hit up all the thrift stores for fun.  Something different, less crazy.  (and of course, at 1:30, I'll put on my purple and gold and cheer on the Tigers...)

Anyway... on another note, remember this SNL skit?  I love her too.



Cracks me up. 

If you want to see some HILARIOUS Target Black Friday commercials, here they are.




Youtube Target Crazy Lady for more funny videos.  They'll prepare you for the upcoming Black Friday rush.  And make you laugh ;)

My sentiments exactly...Target girl makes me laugh out loud (I think it is Josh's aunt actually. One time she showed me how to squat and throw elbows after Thanksgiving lunch in preparation of her next days shopping...YIKES). Happy Thanksgiving, Bakers!!!

I thought I was alone in my outbursts! This chick is too much. She is SO SERIOUS. I wish they would show her actually shopping on Black Friday, ha! I am laughing at the thought.

Her name is Maria Bamford. I remember watching a Comedy Central Presents of her doing stand up years ago. Seriously the funniest thing ever. Here's a link for some clips...
