Anyone who knows me knows that I love shoes. You don't even have to know me well. Let's be honest-they always fit. Even on a fat day, your shoes will not mock you. They will never split or cling to your thighs like cellophane. In fact, heels automatically make your legs look longer and make you "lose" 5 lbs. Good heels give you 8-10 lbs. So, keeping this ratio in mind, it makes complete sense to spend good money on shoes because the higher and better the heels, the thinner you look. Name one pair of pants that create the same illusion every time you put them on or make you feel better every time you are wearing them. I rest my case.
When I had my first baby shower, my aunt, uncle, and cousins bought HK a WHOLE BAG of shoes. I mean-red ones, white ones, tennis shoes, rain boots, UGGs, black ones....they are just phenomenal. I mean-really wonderful. I am beginning to plan HK's outfits based on shoes. This makes a lot of sense because she gets the most comments and compliments on her shoes already. For instance, this evening there was a chance for rain. So, HK put on her rain boots. People stopped us in the restaurant to get a gander at those beauties. Ahhh-shoes are the common denominator for all of mankind. Shoes make everyone happy. Shoes could end wars. ESPECIALLY if they are little itty bitty baby rain boots.
So, these little shoe gems needed a home-a place where they could proudly be displayed. So, I commissioned a shoe rack-with angled shelving and all. Thank goodness that her Papa raised me and realizes that I am a little serious about what goes on the feet. He lovingly made her shoe shelf without even much sighing and only asked once if I was serious. Here is a picture of the newest piece of art in her nursery:
Seriously-that is a masterpiece.
We are adding shoe candy daily! She just got a pair of brown mary jane's and a pair of Winnie the Pooh slippers! In fact, the newest potential addition that I am drooling over are little crib high heels from Heelarious. These are not meant to walk in - they are crib shoes that have a fabric, collapsable heel. I think they are funny. I know that other people will not get the joke and think that they are in ill taste.
These even go beyond MY imagination! Who would have ever thunk it? What a riot!!
It's just me-and all of my idiosyncrasies. I work full time, I am married, and I love my dog. We just adopted a baby girl. I am completely contradictory, I am a girlie girl, and I am impatient. I like breakfast for dinner. I like apples and peanut butter. I like wine. I like entertaining. I like sleeping. I like labels and I can be a b-with an-itch when I want to be or am pushed. I want to give my baby every opportunity in the world, and I want to teach her values and the rewards of hard work. I want more children and am scared to death of the uncertainties of adoption even though I have already done it. I love my husband. I hate that I weigh the most I ever have in my whole life. I want my husband to make a zillion dollars a year, and I want him to put up his laundry and clothes when I ask. I want what most people want-and here is my story-day by day!
