Black Friday Missionary Style

Well we didn't get any christmas shopping done on the biggest shopping day of the year. After looking through all the adds, nothing really stuck out....except for a Mr. Mac ad for $50 off a Missionary package and 20% ECCO shoes.

We met up with Jordan after he got off work and got down to business. I had been researching Missionary clothing and shoes on-line for hours and had our list down. I figured we would have to hit at least 4 different stores for what looked like the best deals and the recommended styles/fabrics for his mission.

We were so happily surprised to find out that Mr. Mac actually carried ALL of what I had put down on the list (even though their on-line store doesn't). We got a great deal on the missionary package, 15% to 20% off everything else, and came out with about 80% of what Jordan needed.

Making sure the suit had enough room to allow for extra missionary poundage!

Hamming it up for the camera.....It's hard for Jordan to be serious for more than a few minutes. So happy to have found the Ecco Boots that we wanted there and on sale. He's going to be doing a lot of hiking in very rural areas so these are perfect.

This picture made it all seem much more real.

I'm bummed I didn't get photos of him picking out his ties. That was the best part of the shopping trip. Jordan certainly know exactly what he likes and has a fun sense of style.

So this is what we got to cross off the "To Buy" list:
1 two pant suit
10 short sleeve shirts
2 long sleeve shirts
8 slacks in black, gray, charcoal, and navy
2 belts
2 pairs extra sturday Ecco shoes
1 pair Ecco hiking boots
1 three in one raint coat
5 ties (Jordan picked ALL paisley, his favorite)
1 missionary shoulder bag
1 toiletry leather bag
1 shoe shine kit
And a partridge in a pear tree!
