Clogs & a Nice Surprise

Are you a "shoe person"? I remember liking cute shoes growing up, but I don't recall ever being obsessed with shoes or having to have the most trendy style. As an adult, I have always bought shoes in a classic style that could be worn more than one season. I fear it is happening to me though. I think I'm becoming a "shoe person". I blame a lot of you, you know (in a good way). It all started with your cute Yellowbox flip flops you introduce me to. I'm hooked! I LOVE them! I am loving shoes and shoe shopping. We just got a new DSW shoe store, and I'm looking forward to picking out some new fall shoes. I've especially been thinking about boots!!!

I think it is already pretty much established that Ella Grace, on the other hand, has been into shoes since she was about six months old. She LOVES them! I have been seeing all over the place that clogs are really in for little girls this Fall. I broke down and bought her a pair at Gymboree. I was going to hold onto them until the Fall, but she was busy trying on all kinds of shoes one night, so I went ahead and gave them to her. Derek happened to have the camera in his hand and caught these pictures. Her expressions are so funny. Please do not look at the mess that is Ella Grace's room. These were taken the day after I got home from my cruise and Daddy had been in charge for a week. Ha!

"Daddy, look!"

"Oh my goodness!" I love it when she says that!

Taking a minute to check them out.


I got the sweetest card in the mail from my friend, Abby, last week. With it was a gift card to Copeland's and a note for Derek and I to go celebrate our 15th anniversary since Derek was gone during the actual day. HOW SWEET! We went Saturday night and had the best meal that included a cheesecake called Ice Cream Sundae. Yum! We had a great time reminiscing about the last 15 years and talking about exciting things ahead. We even got to go to a movie afterward. What a sweet, unexpected treat! I am so blessed to have such sweet friends (and a very sweet husband, too)!

My Mom is a shoe girl, but I'm not. I'll have to tell her about that new shoe store. Ella Grace's hair is so long and pretty! Copeland's is sooo good!

The clogs are so cute! I have always loved shoes and I am afraid that I buy lots of cute shoes for my son....I just can't help it! I have pulled back...I learned my lesson last year when I bought a ton of cute (on sale for $2.99) shoes at Children's Place that he out grew way too soon!

EG and Laurie's little Emily should get together and play "shoes"! Emily loves shoes! They would have a great time together!

EG is just beautiful!

Shoes have always been a weakness for me. EG's hair is getting so long!!!

That was sure thoughtful of your friend, Abby. I'm glad you got to spend the evening out with your sweet man!
