Shoe Shopping

I did quite a bit of shopping and browsing in the stores this weekend and it's amazing how different the trends are this year! There's lots of plaid out there (still not quite sure how I feel about that) but I do know that I love the chunky shoes I'm seeing everywhere!

So, I think it's time to spend my Anthropologie gift card from my birthday and I need your help in deciding which shoes to choose! I love the selection of shoes they have right now because they are funky and chunky - two traits I love in a shoe.

Below are the finalists - tell me which ones you like the best and why to help me shop!



  1. #3! they are darling and not quiet
    so chunky. I really love the red.
    They will look so good with lots of things. MaMa

  2. I second #3. They are gorgeous, a pop of color, a cute floral decal that can be dressed up or down, and look like they can go with any outfit, I am imagining jeans to skirts to slacks. Do let us know what you pick!

  3. Oh, DEFINITELY #3....Every woman needs a pair of red, patent leather, funky, CMFM heels that don't look like they belong dancing on a stage or walking down the boulevard! If you want to feel completely sexy and in control at the same time, red patent is where it's at!

  4. My heart says #3, they're gorgeous. My practical, cold Canadian side says, that I would go with #4, also lovely.

  5. I love all of them, but I think #2 would be my first choice.

  6. #3 all the way. I love the red and the detail=)

  7. I would say #2 or #3. They are both so adorable!! I am obsessed with Anthropologie, they have the best stuff!

  8. I am with the majority on loving #3, with #2 as my second choice.

  9. #1 I can see them with jeans or a cute skirt, so versatile!

  10. I am loving all of them!! Hope you have a great week = )

  11. 2 or 3. I love both! and it seems that yellow really goes well with all outfits- so maybe they are the most versatile!

  12. #3!!!!!! ANY outfit would be complimented by those beauties!

  13. Girl, if you can still wear red shoes like that, then they get my vote because one of these days you will look at shoes like that and say "no way will I try to perch on those and walk at the same time!"

  14. Looks like I'm the odd man out...#4 is my favorite.

  15. #2 is my choice for you!!! I typed a long explanation and it encountered an error ...but basically #1 and #4 aren't funky enough and you've had some red shoes more recently although they would be good for "dress up". So, what'll it be?
    Agree with the comment, "Wear them while you can". They make my broken foot hurt just looking at them!!

  16. #3. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    and i am pretty sure that you had a post awhile back about your obsession with red shoes. i mean...hello. they are calling your name!

    they are gorgeous!

  17. I love #3, however I would love them better in a different, more versatile color. But I love the flower that makes them feminine.

  18. I like number 1!!! They look like a pair you would wear with lots of outfits! They're all adorable!!!

  19. Number 4. They are the most versatile - jeans or skirts!

  20. I too vote for 3. I think red is very versatile and they are not so dressy that they wouldn't go with more casual things. Cute!

  21. I love all of them, the shoes was so gorgeous they are looks so elegant for sure they will fit on me.

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
