Blah, the family has been fighting this cold off for the past week but it's starting to catch up to us. I've been pretty sniffy and icky feeling all day but life goes on.
I bought these shoes the summer after I had Gunnar. My feet had swelled up during the pregnancy a full size and I didn't want to spend money on shoes that might not fit in a few months, so I just kept hobbling around in too-small shoes. After six months, I gave up. I saved for two months to buy these shoes since we were pretty poor at the time and all of the money from my job went towards bills and the baby. They were the first pair of "expensive" I'd ever bought aside from my riding boots, before I'd always bought my shoes at Payless. Fifty dollars for a pair of shoes was spendy to me, but I loved them so much I walked to work so I could save the little bit of gas money. As you can see, I've worn them into the ground, the low heels made them just insanely comfortable for being on my feet all day and I just thought they were the coolest shoes ever. They're starting to look a bit shabby but I just can't bring myself to throw them away.
