After our check was paid, we took a few turns and arrived at the Fairlane Town Center–one of the coolest malls we’d ever been to. The architecture alone was something to be admired. Not only were there multiple floors, but there were “half” floors and flights of stairs and elevators and escalators and ramps at every turn. We had no plans to purchase anything–it had just been too long since I visited a mall and I thought it’d be a fun way to spend the afternoon (people watching, window shopping, and walking off our filling lunch). We both thoroughly enjoyed the hours at the mall and came away with some fantastic buys! I typically hate spending any money on myself and Kevin knows this all too well. While at New York & Company, I found 3 shirts that were on sale and looked absolutely perfect on me, but when I found out they weren’t on sale for quite as much as I thought, I dropped them and walked out of the store–very frustrated. Kevin talked with me for a while, pointing out his simple desire to have his wife allow him to bless her with things she would love to have. *sigh* I finally “got” it. In the end, I walked away with those three shirts (where I save a total of $75) and a great pair of brown high heels and black patent leather peep toes (where I save $95!!). It was a great feeling to get such great deals on things I’ve been saying I need for quite some time. Kevin found the perfect messenger bag on sale (with a built in laptop pocket) and sandals for next summer.
Though my food is still digesting, I shan’t forget the wonderful hours we spent on the town.
