The Woodlands Mall
This is going to be a very meaningless post, that I'm writing on the spur of the moment, simply because we're almost up to 200 comments and we need a new thread so they won't roll over.
I have one picture in my phone that I took at the mall yesterday, a picture of the store front of Hot Topic. The reason I took this dumb picture, is because in the middle of all the other nonsense in the window , they had a cut out of John McCain, which of course caught my eye, and was there to make fun of him, I'm sure. So I, the one who never takes pictures, snapped this one, and that's the one I'm posting here this morning. The second picture is the lake by the mall, and I just got it off a site online. There is also a river (man made) walk outside the mall, which I may snap when I go back Friday. It seems like a good time of the year to focus on malls, since it's getting awfully close to Christmas, and I'm sure some of us will be spending time there, whether we want to or not.
I RARELY go to the Mall anymore, but I wanted to take Emma, and introduce her to the fantastic toddler play area there, which I did, even though she's 'not' a toddler yet. But we had great fun, and I got to do some shopping, which is always fun to me. I'll even be going back Friday morning to get a little Halloween picture of her taken at the photography place there. because they have a little area set up with a bale of hay and a few pumpkins. I could take that picture myself, here, but I've been meaning to get some 'good' ones taken of her for a while now, and figure there's no better time than the present. Then I'll do the same again sometime before Christmas. It also gives me a good excuse to do some more shopping (as though I need an excuse).
I figure I might as well get used to the half hour drive it takes me to get there, because when Emma 'is' a toddler, I'll want to take her frequently to that really cute play court they have there. It was almost as much fun as shopping. Besides that, a lot of the drive there is quite beautiful, so there's that too.
I'm hoping some of you will feel inspired to share something about your favorite mall (or anything else) with us too. I don't know if anyone else is already thinking about Christmas, but October is normally the month I start thinking about it (the same month the flu shots normally come out). Two good things about October, besides Halloween. Soon I'm sure we'll be thinking about Thanksgiving. There's all that great holiday eating coming up. Another thing I don't need an excuse to do. Eat.
