it never fails - give my mom and i more than 2 days together, and we end up with bags full of goodies from the mall. we never pay full price, mind you, and i often go months without indulging in new clothes or what have you, but my mom brings out my inner shopper in ways that i can't explain. maybe it's a function of what the sales lady said yesterday when she found out we were mother & daughter... "really? when i look at you i see friendship..." how lovely. she saw us, and saw our friendship - which is genuine and deep. maybe it's that she gets my taste in shoes and why i need a longer silver chain (for everyday use) and replacement pants (the zipper won't stay up & the belt loop is ripped on my favs). maybe it's because i know if i really, really wanted something outside of my price range she would probably chip in half. :) whatever the reason, we are shopping buddies. let the good times roll!
