These dates give us the opportunity to spend time together, to do things that we wouldn't do on a normal day with the Little Dude (who can be quite a handful at times!) and be girly!
Since I'm on a limited budget, I dug out all of my gift cards and coupons and mapped out our day ....
We started off at the hair salon, where we caught up with my hairdresser and I used a coupon for a much needed haircut.
Then we headed to the mall, where Little Diva used a gift card to a jewelry store. I forgot that Santa left it in her stocking. We enjoyed digging through the racks, and finding some treasures .... including these awesome Mother/Daughter necklaces. I love that we each will have half wherever either one of us is. We also splurged on an oragami set and magazine at the book store.
