My daughter and I enjoyed a fun-filled day together at the mall shopping for a special occasion dress. You have to know that my daughter HATES to shop. I usually buy most of her non-school clothes without her, but every once in a while her presence is required. Well, this excursion was quite an experience, and my daughter's comments and observations had me in stitches.

What mother daughter adventure isn't complete without the mother embarrassing the daughter? On this day, it mostly involved me whipping out my cell phone to take pictures of the randomly cool displays. I could not pass up the opportunity to take a picture of this mannequin. Doesn't it look like she is wrapped in a KONA color card?!
My daughter and I apparently have quite different tastes in clothes. She needed a nice dress to wear to her best friend's
dance recital Bharatanatyam Arangetram. She had something uncomplimentary to say about every dress I suggested, but her reasons were hilarious. I wish I could remember them all. The cute dress above was described as being "nice, except it looked like it had a bloodstain".

I can't remember why she didn't like this pretty dress shown above, but I am sure I pulled it out because it is the kind of dress I wish I could still wear.

This label really caught my eye. I wanted to buy this shirt just because of the name....until I saw the price tag!
My daughter and I both cracked up at the Barbie calendar because earlier my daughter had said to me, "Mom, I'm not your Barbie you can just dress up however you want!" when we were having difficulty finding her a dress to wear.
I couldn't resist picking up this guide to texting codes. I ended up giving it to my Dad who just celebrated his birthday, and we got a few kicks out of some of the acronyms. This one especially: RUOMCITUMAD which means "Are you on medication because I think you missed a dose?!" (Don't have the book in front of me, so this may not be it exactly.) I was a little shocked that my daughter knew that one. I sure hope it's because she read it in the book. I can't see it coming up in conversation with her friends!
She did eventually find a very nice and appropriate dress to wear to the four hour dance recital, but I promised not to post her picture looking so pretty.
This last picture says it all, doesn't it?!!!
So how random is your Thursday?
