Woven shoes rule.

So I got these super cute shoes at DSW the other day… Actually mine are in this colorway –

I got them to be taller than my girls who are getting too tall! Don’t get me wrong, I love that my girls are tall, but I gotta try to keep up when I can. 🙂 Even though I got these shoes to sort of tease them, it turns out that they are super comfy! They might even be the most comfortable shoes that I have ever bought. Who woulda thought?! Height and comfort together… woot! Oh and when I put the shoes on my girls did this…

They won the moment but I will tower above them when we walk about… heehee!

Why I love DSW!

I got nice shoes for $1! Woohoo! I even used an expired coupon! I love DSW. My coupon was good through Feb. 14th and after chatting with the clerk I sort of whined about how I forgot to get in the store in time to use my coupon and she was like whip it out… we can still use it. Sweet! I just love that store. Of course I want to go back and get those flip-flops decorated with swarovski crystals. I just knew it was less fun to buy flip-flops in February because I can’t wear them until July. I am taking a trip in March though… hmmm…. 😉

Happy birthday to me!

So yesterday I decided to zip by the mall… just to see if I could find anything to spend my birthday money on. (Thanks mom!) I found these awesome shoes! The best part is that they actually fit! Woohoo! Yes, I have big feet. I’m 5’10” and my feet chime in at a whopping 10 wide or an 11, sizes which are often not in stock… at least not in the cool shoes! So when I tried on these sneakers in a 10 I was skeptical, but hey they look wide so I might be able to cram my ten toes in and yippee! I didn’t even have to cram. 🙂 Shoes are always a mood lifter!

Am I getting old?

So lately my exercise has been walking my girls about 10 blocks to school in the morning and in the afternoon. In the morning I usually take a long detour home up some big hills, etc., in an effort to make it better exercise. I love doing this. I listen to my podcasts, usually This American Life which I LOVE! (Really… give it a try!) The only downside is that I have to resign myself to wearing only tennis shoes if I am going to walk this much. So I’ve been wearing my cute Converse low-tops and all is well… Recently, however, I have had to drive the girls to school so I though “Yeah! I can wear some of my other fun shoes.” Except now they are not comfortable at all! Who designed these shoes? Am I just getting old if I say I only like to wear tennis shoes now? Sigh… I think maybe I am. 🙂 Oh well, thank goodness for Zappos so I can at least find some fun and fashionable sneakers for my big ol’ feet! I do love the crazy Converse styles and look I just snapped up these Puma’s. I ordered them yesterday at 5:30pm and they are already out for delivery today! Woohoo!

Does everyone else think about shoes as much as me? Probably not… heehee…

Argh!!!!!!!!

My youngest went crazy with the scissors! 🙁 sniff sniff… I’m not sure that I will be able to keep wearing the shoes because the newly adjusted shoe feels looser than the other and it reminds me of the offense, but perhaps I should keep the reminder so I never leave the scissors down again! 😀 Oh the joys of children…

New shoes


Yesterday my kids and I went out and about for a bit and I found these shoes that I just think are soooooo cute! Especially in dreary Oregon! I always love to get fun shoes to perk up my otherwise boring jeans and t-shirt attire. (Won’t they look great with my zebra coat? Heehee…) I am so happy that Dansko is getting a bit more fun in some of their designs!! They are the most comfortable shoes out there! It was hard to decide between lilac, blue, green, or coral! But somehow I managed… Anyway, got lots to do this afternoon! I meant to list a bracelet this morning but now it looks like it will be tonight. Hope you are having a great day!!

Woohoo! New shoes!

I just got some cute new shoes in size 11 for my monster feet! Yipee!! Okay, I am 5’10” so my feet don’t look too big on me, but do you know how hard it is to find CUTE shoes in size 11? VERY! So I’m doin’ my happy dance. Heehee… I also looked online and I was amazed at how many shoes actually are available in size 11. Granted, shopping for shoes is a bit dicey without trying them on, but if I try on a 10 in a store I can get an idea and order it in an 11. 😀 It is the little things in life that are good! Hope you are having a great day!
