Ideas of fun activities to do with a 17 yr old either this afternoon or evening?

I'm just stumped! I'm not sure what she likes doing so I'm going to make a list and give her a choice! She's my husband's daughter who he hasn't seen in a long time and she says she wants to get to know me as he's just spent some time alone with her so I'm really really nervous!

Ideas? :)

  • arcade like Dave and Busters
    mall-shopping no better way to bond with a teen girl
    movies- but then you can't talk but dinner before would be nice

  • Go to the mall to shop. See if there is a movie she wants to see and do dinner then go to the movies after a few hours of shopping.

  • mani/pedi's..

    facials are great too, especially for teens that may have acne issues (they can teach her the proper make up to wear and products to use to help with it, which is great for any teen).

    shopping as well can be fun.

  • Take her shopping and buy her something nice.

  • Take her to a nice dinner, then ask her what she would like to do. Maybe plan a spa day, take a walk in the park or by a lake or river, go to a baseball game.
