Well, the final countdown is on for vacation! I’ve been running around like crazy for the past two days trying to get things taken care of at work and at home. We’ve had a break from the heat for the past few days, but the heat was back in full effect today! It was HOT, HOT, HOT…add to that a dollop of humidity with a mosquito on top and you’ve got yourself a regular summer sundae. It’s supposed to be even hotter tomorrow which is why I’m glad that we will be well on our way to San Diego. I checked the 10-day forecast and it’s going to be fabulous weather! I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted on the fun sites and awesome food that we encounter on our trip. Stay tuned!

Hormones vs Shoes August 22, 2007

What is it with women and shoes? I love shoes. L-O-V-E. S-H-O-E-S. Can you really ever have too many? I think not. Sometimes I wonder if our hormones make us have such a grandiose love for shoes.

Well, I was going through my September issue of Lucky Magazine. (Did I mention that I have a thing for magazines, too? Similar to Lindsay Lohan’s affection for rehab.) Anyway, this month’s issue features the fall shoe guide. I seriously need a pay raise because there are some awesome shoes coming our way. I’m a short girl with small, wide feet. That being said, it can sometimes prove difficult to pull off a pair of flats without looking like an oompa-loompa. I’m also that person that when I peruse the magazine pages, the items I’m drawn to are usually beyond my budget. So imagine my surprise to find a pair of flats (patent, no less) that were affordable (only $29.99) and flattering.

As I had mentioned before, this week has not really been going great, so I decided that I needed a little pick-me-up. A la a pair of canvas Jack Purcell Converse. I’ve been wanting a pair of these for a while now, so why not let this be the week that I give in to temptation…or my hormones and their love of shoes.

You know you’re off to a bad start when, on Tuesday, you’ve already decided that this is just not gonna be your week. We leave for vacation on Saturday and I think I mentally checked out yesterday! The look on Biscuit’s face sums everything up nicely.
