Planned By: Adam
So everyone remembers going clothes shopping for back-to-school and summer with their parents, right? Well, guess what... when you go in to the real world you don't get those opportunities anymore. Adam and I haven't really gone shopping since we graduated and decided it was time for some new clothes. The worst part about going clothes shopping in the real world is that you have to pay for it yourself. Gasp. I know right, crazy. That's probably why we haven't gone shopping in awhile, we are frugal.
So guess where we went shopping. No, not the goodwill like in Date 29, but another thrifty place.. T.J.Maxx! We also went to The Great Lakes Mall in Mentor and Shoe Carnival.
T.J. Maxx is a great store. If you've never been there I recommend it. They sell name brand stuff for super cheap. I got a few new shirts and a pair of shorts. I really wanted a new purse because those are also marked down quite a bit, but decided against it. Adam decided to get a bunch of really nice polos.
We had lunch in the food court. We had a hard time deciding what to eat because they don't have very many choices. We hadn't had mall pretzels in a while so we went to Auntie Anne's Pretzel shop. We each got a pretzel dog and shared a Cherry Lemonade Mixer. It was all good, but not very filling. While we were eating we people watched. The mall is a great place to people watch. Adam was surprised that he saw at least 5 pregnant ladies. That is kind of a lot, but he liked to mention it every time he saw one. There are a lot of fun things to do in malls like ride the money operated things and get candy!
We went to the Shoe Carnival and Adam got a new pair of Polo shoes and Nike running shoes. I didn't get any, but I got a pack of socks! Who doesn't like new socks? We got to spin the savings wheel and walked away with a $4 off coupon!
Going to the mall and spending our own money on things that aren't necessary isn't one of my favorite things to do, but we had a lot of fun together!
Oh and we also went and saw The Hunger Games, but I'm sure you'll see a Hunger Games themed date night sometime in the future since I'm currently obsessed with the series... you'll have to wait and see what I come up with.
