UGH, the MALL...

So today I took Miles to Fashion Place Mall and met my mom. Our mission was to find a pair of shoes to match my bridesmaid's skirt for Brad and Katy's wedding. It wasn't long before I remembered why I haven't been to "the mall" since, mmm, probably last Christmas season. I wasn't there ten minutes before I had this nagging urge to go home and take a nap. Miles wasn't liking it either. Maybe it was the hip-hop music blasting throughout the main halls, or the mixture of too much cologne and perfume permeating throughout the department stores...Then there was that "Dead Sea Salt" booth. Don't even get me started on that one! Anyway, Miles cried just about the entire time. And the only pair of shoes I liked turned out to cost over $100. BUMMER. Empty-handed and famished, we grabbed a quick bite at Pretzel Maker and I loaded up my tired, crying baby and drove home. Maybe I'll just wear my flip-flops to the wedding!

Take it all back. I love the mall and you hurt my feelings. Did you even go to the Buckle? how about Zumies? Pac Sun? Spencers Gifts? How can you honestly say you hate these places. Nothing I like more than a good conversation with one of the upstanding young men at the cell phone kiosks either. Shame on you Steph- I may blacklist you from the nogger this year.

Oh yeah, malls are the worst. I avoid them at all costs. We're talking ALL costs.

Oh my goodness! The mall launches me into fits of exhaustion, too! What are the odds?! I had no idea that we shared this ailment. Good boy, Miles. I cry at the mall, too. :)
