Shopping - Defined as visiting shops for purchasing or examining goods; Also a means of acquiring items one needs (or on some occasions, doesn't); a favorite pasttime; a bonding ritual between women. The first definition is from dictionary.com; the other 3 are my own.
And boy did mom and I shop this weekend. We brought to life all 4 of the definitions above. We purchased and examined many goods; we acquired items we need (and quite a few we probably didn't); we engaged in a favorite past time; and we bonded.
Skating - This year is the 25th anniversary of the Smuckers Stars On Ice tour. Mom and I are ice skating watching nerds, and when we found out that several of our favorite skaters were coming back to the tour and it was coming to a city within easy driving distance, we decided we had to go. So we bought tickets back in September to see Kurt Browning, Ekaterina Gordeeva, Todd Eldridge, and the rest in Pittsburgh this past Saturday night.
Silliness - There is always some silliness involved when my mom and I are together. We laugh at each other and with each other. One or the other of us is always doing or saying something that will send the other into fits of giggles. Makes the life interesting, and oh so fun.
So this weekend was a weekend of shopping, skating and silliness. It was Girls Weekend - Mom & Daughter Style.
