While we were out

Wednesday night Amanda (my daughter for those of you who don't already know) came over for dinner. It was so great to see her again. We had steaks on the grill and made plans to shop the next day.
Little did she know that I would be armed with my camera to record the day.
She was on a mission to find some new clothes, so first stop was Kohl's. Not a whole lot of luck but she did find a sweater that she liked.

This is when I first pulled out the camera. I think I embarrassed her but isn't that what a mother is for?
Next there was a stop at the Verizon store. She needed to ask about a problem with her phone and I wanted the cool clip on cover like she had for her phone.
Next stop was lunch at TGIFriday's
My lunch

and hers

After that we headed to the mall. I know, lets park by A.C.Moore (ulterior motives here)
Time to shop

Had to stop in the Hallmark store to check out the selection of Snoopy stuff.
Since I'm getting a little carried away here I won't show you the pictures from Walmart or the gas station. I'll just skip to the last stop of the day.
 It was a fun day but I can't believe how tired I was once I got home. Ian (Amanda's boyfriend) chose to spend the day mowing the lawn with his dad instead of joining us. I laughed when Amanda said he was excited about mowing the lawn. First time I've ever heard anyone say that.

What a great mother-daughter day! I love spending the day shopping with my daughter. Looks like Amanda chose a healthier lunch than you. But those fries looked really tasty. Ian really missed a wonderful outing.:)

Grace said...

A great day with your daughter - what could be better?

tahtimbo said...

Your lunch looked great!!! Now, I'm hungry.
I have to agree with Ian, when it comes to shopping, I'd rather mow the lawn, too :)
I'm glad that you both had a fun time shopping!

I bet you are enjoying seeing her home again for a bit. It sounds like you guys had a really nice day!

BeadedTail said...

Sounds like a wonderful mother-daughter day! I've never seen that many Snoopys in a Hallmark before!

Jen said...

Glad you two had a great time together. Funny how much that stuff can wear you out sometimes isn't it? :o)

FishHawk said...

Am I getting the right impression that your daughter has refused to give you permission to publish a picture of her face?

Russ said...

Well it looks like you had a great time. Too bad we can't see what Amanda looks like. We promise not to stalk her.

Anny said...

What a wonderful day you both had :) Your meal at TGIF made me hungryy.. *LOL*

Sharkbytes said...

A fun day with someone close to you... what could be better?

Catherine said...

Your photos are making me hungry!! Sounds like you had a terrific day with your daughter ~ good for you!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
xo Catherine

Marg said...

That looked like a super day. I am exhausted just hearing about all the places you went. But what fun. The lunch looked really good.
Have a great day today resting up

Audrey said...

What a great day!! Yes - mother's are supposed to embarrass their children. We have to get them back for all the times they did it to use when they were small :)

I love to mow grass! It's 2.5 hours of uninterrupted time.

Bossy Betty said...

Loved seeing your day out! I especially enjoy the emphasis on food. My oldest boy leaves again today--back to his college town. Love these kids, don't we?

Anna said...

Thank you for taking us all out on your special mother-daughter-outing!

Just for the record, my mother took me to Kohl's to shop for clothes the last time I was at home with her. We had fun too. But we did not eat out. We waited until we got home.

Tell Amanda it's ok. We've all already seen pics of her earlier on your blog!

Best wishes,
Anna

Should have taken me along, I have a 30% coupon for Kohls. Burns my hand when they get that high.

marie said...

Mother-daughter days are the best...looks like your day was full and fun!
Lunch looked very yummy!

Donna said...

Glad you two had a good time! Love all those Snoopys! Cute!

Sheri said...

Amanda's dish looks fabulous! That building at the bottom is way too cute!

Ann said...

jean I think that is amanda's favorite dish there

Grace not much

tahtimbo now you sound like my husband, he hates to shop

roschelle LOL, oops, didn't mean to torture you during your diet

joven thank you, I'll pop on over

tanyia well other than dinner and shopping the next afternoon "seeing" isn't what I'm doing :)

beaded tail it was wonderful. They had that big display right in the front of the store. It sucked Amanda right in...lol

Jen thanks, Yes i think spending the money is more exhausting than making it sometimes

fishhawk, not at all, she knows I'll post ANY picture. I was just being considerate since she's not pleased with the weight she's gaines

Russ there's lot of pictures of her around here

anny it was a very yummy lunch

sharkbytes I can't think of a single thing right now

catherine I did have fun

Marg yes must rest, it's back to work tomorrow

Audrey glad someone agrees with me :)

bossy betty ah yes, I know that will be tough watching him head out

anna you're quite welcome. I rarely shop at kohl's, but Amanda wanted to stop there

out on the prairie oh rats, wish I would have known.

marie it was full of fun

donna yep and she's a snoops fanatic

sheri I had that the last time we went there together and it is good, can't remember what it's called though

Sandee said...

How fun. I knew you'd have a great time. I can remember my outings with my mom. They were always fun. I sure miss them too.

I love both of the lunches, but I'd have ordered the chicken/pasta one like Amanda did. I rarely turn down pasta.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

gayle said...

I love shopping with my girl friends. My daughters don't like to shop that much:( We do love TGIF's!!! Love both those meals!

Reeni said...

I'm glad you had a good day of shopping! And mom-daughter time!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I love the way you've taken an ordinary day and made it exciting and fun. That lunch both yours and hers, though yours would have been my choice as well, looks wonderful. I adore Snoopy, so to see him here makes me smile - Big Time!

DSS said...

What a lovely day...and those lunches look delish!

I wonder if a day of shopping made mowing the grass sound so much more enjoyable? Hmmm....

Ann said...

Sandee, I'm glad we were able to do it. I never had too many outings with my mother

Gayle I don't like shopping as much as I used to but every now and then it's rather fun

Reeni thanks, me too

poetic shutterbug everything seems fun when you're equipped with a camera...lol

DSS they were very delicious. well at least mine was, I didn't try hers :)

B Boys Mom said...

I love to shop so that sure looks like my kind of day. What fun!!!!

Ann said...

B Boys Mom, ya know I don't enjoy shopping as much as I used to but this was a fun day
