The Day After Xmas…

Bloomingdales pink and black outfits

I woke up in the morning and noticed the yoga meetup was cancelled. I had a feeling it would be cancelled for some reason. I took my time in the morning. I didn’t have any plans. After my morning Trader Joe’s Gingerbread coffee with my vitamins and a vegan cookie, I decided to walk around in South Coast Plaza to check out the after xmas sales as well as the crowd in the mall.

I noticed there were long lines next to the luxury high-end designer boutiques. The mall was very busy. Besides window-shopping and people-watching while walking around everywhere to get my walking exercise for the day, I decided to stop at certain stores to check out their sales. I found 3 designer clothing items at Macys, which were on sale and sale prices were half price. I decided to get them, and when I bought them, I received a $10 coupon on anything in the store, which expires next December. I decided to use it right away because I am likely to forget about it. So, I went upstairs and bought something else I was interested in since last month, but it wasn’t on sale.

I walked all over the mall, as well as across the bridge to the other part of the mall, and then across the street to the MetroPointe outlet area. Then, I walked back over the bridge and toward the parking lot. I noticed I was walking around for 3 hours, getting lost in the crowd and just mostly absorbing myself into the hustle and bustle of the busy mall environment.

When I returned home, I noticed I walked 3.2 miles and 8,054 steps within a 3-hour period. That is not bad for casual walking or taking a stroll inside a mall as well as outside around the mall.
