As I said last week, I was taking a short vacation to Minnesota. And among the good times with friends, family (and yes, young adult books), I got to spend some time at the world’s largest shopping mall, Mall of America.
With over 400 stores and a 7 acre indoor park, millions of people from all over the world visit each year. And I could sure see why! In the couple of hours I spent there, I made it into maybe a dozen stores and gawked at as many amusement park rides, and the overall atmosphere is really fun and pleasant.
Best of all, I ended up buying my dress for the Rita® Award ceremony! It happened so unexpectedly. I was telling my cousin that while last year, I wanted my look to say “romantic,” that this year, I had a whole different style in mind. And I pointed to a display of dresses as an example of what I meant. And the next thing I knew, I was trying one on--and then going for the wallet. How easy was that? (Specifics of the dress not to be revealed yet!)
And amusing to me is the Minnesota connection: The ABC’s of Kissing Boys takes place in Minnesota, and now I’ve purchased the dress there, too! Yes, I am silly and sentimental about things like that!
Has anyone else been to or heard about the Mall of America?
