Amanda talked me into taking her to the Buckland Hills Mall today so that she could meet one of her on-line friends that lives in Hartford. I should probably point out that this particular mall is a good 45 miles away from our house but we didn't really have anything else on the agenda for today so why not? Plus, she's spoiled though she fails to think so!
Once we got to the mall we had to hang around for a little bit until her friend showed up at their designated meeting place - Hot Topic, of course - so I spent some time watching people walk by when suddenly I spied the cutest little old couple since our own Sarge Charlie and Empress Bee.
As I spied them, they were walking hand in hand along the concourse and what struck me most other than the fact that they looked so happy together was the way that the woman was dressed. She had on a lovely dress along with a pair of hot pink sandals with 6 inch heels, a matching handbag, and a hot pink hat complete with scarf and funky flower. She looked like she was dressed in her Sunday best and ready for an Easter parade or luncheon with her friends. I thought she was just adorable all decked out like that as well as impressed that she was walking so well in those shoes!
I decided to follow them because of course I was thinking "wow, I need to write about this in my blog!" and as just a mere written description wasn't going to do it, I would need to try to take a picture or two with my cell phone. Amanda decided at that point that I was completely and totally crazy as I was "stalking" an old couple and surreptitiously taking pictures!
At one point, "Miss Pink" stopped at Urban Outfitters of all places and started looking through the clearance bins, God bless her little pink-bedecked heart! I apologize for the quality of this picture as it certainly doesn't do her justice (you can't see the lipstick that matched her hat, shoes, and purse)) but it was as close as Amanda was going to allow me to get and my camera phone isn't the best in the world. Still, I think you can at least get a general idea of how cute she looked!
Shortly after that Amanda's friend showed up and after walking around a bit with the two of them and her mother I decided to cut out for the local Borders where I could sit myself down in their WiFi Cafe, get a nice cold beverage, and do a blog entry! Because after all, life is one big blog post these days!
Just don't tell my friend Miz Cyn that I went to a pretentious WiFi cafe again! She'll disown me!
