Sunday after church I took Kiki to the mall, because she needed a birthday gift for a friend. I don’t generally go to the mall; we have so many nice, independently owned stores, not to mention that our mall is kind of lame. It’s getting better, but I am still holding out for Nordstrom. Seriously, there is no where else you can buy quality children’s shoes… but, I digress. The point is, we went, even though we also don’t normally go shopping on Sunday, either. That’s a throwback to my traditional-church upbringing, I guess – keeping the Sabbath holy and all that. I mean, I think that’s "religiousity and law" yet I still feel guilty about doing it! So anyhoo, off we went. And man, it was so crowded! It seemed almost worse than Christmas! I could barely find a spot to park, even way out on the ends (which is where I like to park anyway, so I don’t get ‘door-dings’) Can the Christmas shopping frenzy have begun already??!! Yikes. Honestly, I love Christmas, but geez…. The good part is that Kiki and I both got new jammies! This is a big event, I don’t buy myself clothes too often 🙂 . What’s really fun is that even though we were at a Children’s clothing store, they had "Holiday Pajamas" in adult sizes as well ~ so Kiki and I have matching jammies. Awwwww. Sweet, eh? They are fleece, and this is good because we are refusing to turn up the heat this winter, so I’ll need something to keep me warm…and these are like having a blanket on at all times! Mmmmmm. Cozy!
