New Shoes!

I've been saving this post for a while now.  I was waiting for a day when I thought that I would REALLY need to make Natasha laugh.......................oh dear, I think that day may be here today!  Got one of those "I'm losing it!" emails from her today (hee hee)....I think she needs a laugh, so here it goes!..............



I LOVE SHOES!!! Don't you?  Remember when Dawn Pritchard blogged about her shoes?  She even got PUBLISHED in a scrapbooking magazine.  Well, it inspired me to put together this post about my new shoes. (P.S.  I'm coming to see you soon Dawn!)  I'm going to visit family in St. Albert, Alberta, and I'm definately going to drop into Dawn's store while I'm there. 

I bought these shoes................ooohhhhh how they glitter and sparkle!  I love them so much!     It doesn't really matter that I don't really have any events to wear these babies to.  What matters was that  I had to drag my 3 year old son with me to a huge shoe sale and fight off tons of crazed ladies to get them.  I even trained him to say:  "Back off lady.  Back off!"   Imagine the glow of driving home winning such a well fought fight. 




When my husband got home, I proudly showed him my latest acquisition, and his comments were:  "Not very practical", and " HOW much were they?"  I proceeded to explain to him EXACTLY how practical they were, and considering just HOW practical they are, that made them a very good deal.  Makes sense?  Right?

See......

PRACTICAL!  Right? 



Items used to create this card:

oh my gosh I am peeing in my pants...I won't post that picture, you will just have to take my word on it. I love you with your little vacuum and your sexy shoes...you just need a pair of pearls, and an apron and I think they could re-do the series Leave it to Beaver.
Hugs and thanks for the laugh,
