this past weekend i played 5 hours worth of soccer. it was a typical situation. i always think i am much more capable than i actually am. it was great fun. i loved spending so much time with my team mates. and hey, that’s what they invented analgesics for.
yesterday i was walking like an 80 year old who had shredded nubs for feet. unfortunately the holidays wait for no woman, no matter how much her aching back is screaming. plus my silver lining was a mani/pedi in mid morning. i just needed to make it to 10:30.
i got out of the car and walked up to the electronics store to get the goose her BIG gift. the lights were on and i could see people, but the automatic doors were ignoring my presence. i should say that this isn’t the first time. i would be that girl that kept walking even though the automatic doors didn’t open, thus leaving a permanent reminder of the meeting with a grease outline of my face. i took a deep sigh. i looked to the right. then, realized that they didn’t open for another 20 minutes. i stepped back. looked to the left, and saw old navy. sure, i can always spend some time (translation, money) in old navy.
i’m a speed shopper. i don’t do too much deliberating. like in the rest of my life, i know what i like when i see it. so i was bouncing around the store, throwing this in for stubs, that in for the goose. i came around the corner and i swear i heard angels sing. there in front of me, back lit in golden hues was a big old pile of these.
man, these things are butter soft. it wasn’t until i actually put them on, that i knew i was in love. i raved about them on FaceBook and my friend carrie wondered aloud if she could wear them to work. well carrie, i will be wearing them out and about today in your honor.
aren’t they cute? they could totally pass for boots. i will say that we had too much fun at dinner discussing my hairy balls (refer to picture). it wasn’t until i tried to take the stairs too fast that i found the one flaw in my heaven’s shoes….
those fur balls will trip you up in a hot second. but i looked real cute falling all the way down the stairs.
