Last night Chris and I had a date at the mall. We met up after work to do some shopping. It wasn't as crowded as I had imagined but seeing that we were there around dinner time and that it was a Thursday I guess it was expected.
We went to stores I didn't even know existed. The mall has changed so much since I was a kid. I used to hang around there all the time. Now you wouldn't even recognize it. Chris' goddaughter wanted clothes from all the "cool" shops. She's a teenager now so Hollister, American Eagle, Aeropostle and the like was were it was at. I felt so old being waited on by kids and asking questions like, "is there a store called Pink?" And, "what are yoga pants?"
After trudging through the kid stores and a stop, for myself, at Macy's to get a couple of Lenox tree ornaments, a tradition, we were off to P.F. Chang's for dinner. I had never been there. The food was delicious! They had a to-die-for banana spring roll dessert with coconut ice cream. I had a couple of bites and that was it. I was so full and besides well over my caloric intake for the day.
Only one more week of work and I'm off for the rest of the year!
