Since my "boyfriend" had off today for Veteran's Day, I decided to take the day off too. We ventured to Fair Oaks Mall with Brandon's family to eat some yummy pasta and cheesecake from the one and only Cheesecake Factory and did a little shopping afterwards. Due to some tight budgeting for these next couple of weeks, we mainly just window shopped.
As much as I love shopping, when I go in with the right mindset, I can do very well at walking in and out of a store without buying anything....except for Charming Charlies. Charming Charlies is my weakness haha. But hey, we only go to Fair Oaks once a year, so I'm allowed to get something...right?! Besides the items I picked out are going to be Christmas gifts anyways so that makes it sound better... doesn't it? I will admit though that while we were walking around, I did find two other stores that I fell in love with also (Papaya and Altar'd State), so I will have to be make sure that I don't spend all my money in one place next time. I actually have shopped at a Alar'd State store before at VA Beach, but I always forget that there is one at Fair Oaks, too. I think it's so cool that they are Christian-based!
Anyways....after a nice day of shopping, we were more than happy to come home and prop our feet up (and I was definitely more than happy to turn my heating pad on for my back. My feet were actually okay, but with being pregnant and all, my lower back is what started hurting after walking around all day. But, heating pads are a great invention, and it's already helping my back so much! Yay!).
