I recognize that my blog is suffering.
Much like my stomach muscles, my posts have become weak and flabby... with stretch marks. And I'm sorry for any new readers who thought they would like it here only to discover what a bloggy slacker I've become.
But hang-it-all, ever since Claira was born I struggle to keep up with just about everything!
You know how we always look at our kids while they're kicking and screaming in the middle of the store and think, "Oh... heavens. I know this is a stage, but I can't wait until they grow out of it!" Well, I think as an adult we still go through "stages".
So hopefully, I'll be able to grow out of this slacker stage soon.
*sigh* Or maybe it's that I've been eating less chocolate and more cookies. That might be the problem right there. Chocolate has always been the better of the two options, I don't know what I'm thinking!!
It's obviously a chemical imbalance or something.
Anyway, just because I haven't had the guts to tackle our 4th of July pictures yet, I thought I'd show you what I "up-cycled"... or "recycled" or whatever you call it.
I bought this thing for $5. Apparently, it's a doll crib/clothes dresser.
But I had other plans for it.
Hubby helped me fix the broken pieces and I repainted it.
It's going to stay in our kitchen and I'm going to get a couple of pretty indoor plants to put in the top.
What do you think?
And now, I have a question.
So, I found some shoes I loved several months ago. But they were just too far out of my price range. Nevertheless I put them in my on-line shopping bag and there they've sat for the last four months or so while I would lovingly dream about them.
Well, the site finally decided to have sale! Seriously, you have no idea how excited I was. It was truly ridiculous. So I caved (heaven help me, I did cave) and I ordered them.
Now, I'm a little taller than 5' 6.5" so I always just round up to 5'7". Because saying I'm a little taller than 5'6.5" just sounds ridiculous and long-winded.
So, I have a five inch heel limit on all my shoes. That already puts me close to six feet tall anyway so, I never go taller than a five inch heel.
Well here's my dilemma.
In the description of the shoe, it says it has a four-inch heel. Perfect! And now that they were on sale, including shipping the shoes were less than twenty bucks.
*sigh* Aren't they beautiful?
But the moment I pulled them out I knew something was wrong. The heel looked way longer than four inches, so I held them next to my five-inchers. Sure enough, they were half an inch longer! So the heel is five and a half inches long!
I love them, I really, really do. But do you think they are a bit much? Too tall and all? What do you think? Should I keep them and tower over everyone when I wear them? Or send them back.
Ahhh!! I can't decide!!
But I did find my first pair of super cute flats at Ross. I'm rather proud of myself for venturing out beyond flip-flops.
They make me feel all grow-up or something.
