Summer’s Last Hurrah – Shop ‘Til you Drop!

One of my favorite days every year is the day my mom and I go on a back to school shopping trip.  Our day always follows the same schedule: We start with lunch at Applebee’s.  Then we head off to the mall.  We usually get a couple of fun outfits or accessories for fall.  Rarely do we have an all out fill-up-the-trunk-of-the-car-entirely shopping spree (although it has happened), but it’s the quality of the time together rather than the quantity of the purchases that makes the day so special.  After that we stop for a cookie at Mrs. Field’s in the mall.  It’s always such a happy, wonderful day together.  It may be simple, but it puts a nice cap on summer and always helps me feel energized for the new school year ahead.  (Energized that is is after getting some post shop ’til you drop rest, of course.)
