After that, we went BACK to the Mall and looked around some more. We just sorta walked through store after store, not really buying anything but just, well...looking. :) One of the last stores we went to was a little Chinese store tucked in the Mall that hadn't been open long. They had tons of Samurai Swords, which completely fascinated me! I got to hold one and pull it out of the sheath, studying the beautiful blade. Ah...I wanted it. It had Chinese writing on it, so I asked the little Chinese lady there what it said. She read it in Chinese, but had a very hard time speaking English; though she was very, very sweet. They also had nunchukas, climbing claws, and some absolutely gorgeous dresses! They had little golden dragon statues, and I was tempted to buy one because of the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats, but...I didn't. :) I DID buy a BIG black ring, that looks really neat! There was a big glass case in the middle of the room that caught my eye as well; it had tons of knives in it! All sorts of them! Switch blades, flip blades, small throwing stars, double blades, and my favorite of all...balisong knives, or otherwise known as butterfly knives. Ooooh man they were SO neat! I got to hold one of them, and flipped it a bit, though very carefully, because I really don't know how. It was very, very nice.
After that, mom kept telling me that she had a surprise, and I'm going, "What is it? Tell me!!!!!!" Dying of curiosity, of course. Finally, we left the Mall, and mom took me to Cold Stone Creamery. I've never been there, and it was REALLY good! (Too good...)
We finally went home and wrapped up the day with watching Nicholas Nickleby.
All in all, it was GREAT! We had a wonderful time, and I'm glad I got to spend the day out. Lot's of fun! And thank you to all of the friends who've wished me a happy birthday and made it special! Love you all!!!!!!!!!!
Lord, thank you for 16 years!
Saw this really cool Chevy Avalanche at the Chinese restaurant!
A really nice wine-glass that I liked. (That's the hoodie a bought!)
