Shopping in CA

I usually consider mall shopping to be a good rainy day activity. But it never rains here. Perhaps that's why I haven't been able to make myself go to the mall until today. It's just like any other mall - directories, food courts, department stores - but in between the stores there are no ceilings. It's not like the outdoor malls in the midwest where everything is stretched out in a strip. The outside looks like the inside of any other mall, potted plants, benches, etc. And the walls are decorated to match, so it truly looks like a normal, indoor mall, minus the ceilings. Amazing.

Also, it's quite likely that when you're bending down to look at a folded shirt, a little dog will come up to you looking for attention. Evidently there is a large population of shoppers who can't leave their puppies at home. I almost stepped on the first dog I ran into. Certainly wasn't something I was looking out for.

Finally, in case you're wondering, the shopping selection out here is SO much better than in Indiana. It also seems to be marginally cheaper. Go figure.

Don't go to the Beverly Hills mall (nothing is cheap there). We went mostly for the fact that it was the Beverly Hills mall...lol. And it's not that great of a mall :( Pretty, though. And they have a huge bar, too.
