>Christmas Shopping


Proud Mama
Originally uploaded by Mainline Mom.

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I’m a shopaholic.

One of my favorite things to shop for is baby clothes. Especially girl clothes. Thank goodness I have TWO nieces to buy Christmas gifts for. Forget toys, these girls are gettin’ clothes.

So I braved the madness of the mall this afternoon. This isn’t just any mall either, in case you didn’t know, my mall happens to be the King of Prussia mall, which is the nation’s largest retail shopping complex. We’re talking eight anchor department stores and over three hundred smaller stores. Fourty restaurants. People travel far and wide on a Saturday in December to shop at my mall.

I spent fully a half an hour in Nordstrom just looking at ties. Hundreds of them. There were literally eight bored salespeople standing around waiting to help me. I could not find the perfect tie. There is very little else I can buy for my Grandfather, the man who has everything. So I left empythanded to go get myself a mint mocha at the Nordstrom Espresso Bar. I heart mint mochas.
