Zoe and I had a Mother daughter day last weekend. We spent the morning together at Northgate Mall in North Seattle. My goal was to get her nails done, this girl loves makeup and everything girly much more than I do, so I knew it would be fun for her.
We arrived at Northgate Mall before it opened and walked from one end all the way to the food court. There we found that See’s Candies was open early. Of course it was before Valentine’s Day and they were open extended hours because chocolate is such a popular gift for Valentine’s Day. The good thing about See’s is you can go in for a free sample and that was the beginning of a magical day with my daughter. I had a chocolate caramel and she had a chocolate vanilla truffle. YUM. After the chocolate delights we walked back to the other end of the mall to get our nails done.
We went into Nail Art, and they made our nails very beautiful but whatever they did with my daughter’s nails it didn’t last more than 4 hours. Each nail peeled off one by one. It was just polish but I really had hoped it would have lasted longer. Maybe it’s because she’s a busy little girl using her hands all day, who knows?
I think the most important part of the day was making great memories with my daughter. We were able to talk to each other without any interruptions, I found out she likes one of the boys in her class more than any of the other kids, he likes to laugh at her jokes. I also found out that she really likes to play Candy Land. We had a great day and enjoyed looking in quite a few stores and had lunch there. She loves going into Claire’s and I love going into Romy’s and Victoria Secret. She also loves the shoe stores and lotion stores. Because we were short on time we ended up having a slice of pizza. Northgate Mall has everything a daughter and mother could want in a mall.
I received a gift card to use for getting myself organized, I ended up using it to get a few clothes I needed for my blogging business trips. I’m a Northgate Mall Blog Ambassador.
