Mama Went Shoppin'

Tonight as I was doing the dinner dishes James called me on his way home from work. He told me that my Sunday shoes looked like crap and that when he got home he would take care of the kids and put them to bed so that I could go shopping.

BLESS HIM.



I was so excited to go shopping without that big, cumbersome double stroller. I'm sure the other shoppers wondered what my deal was when they saw the stupid grin on my face as I effortlessly went up and down the escalator. Going in and out of dressing rooms was wonderful too. Usually I have to make like a 12 point turn to get in and out of them. (All the while bumping into walls and leaving a trail of raisins and goldfish crackers as I go.)

Here's what I got



The brown shoes look like they're wearing naughty lingerie and I like that.

Bless that James for letting the woman go shopping, and for having it be his idea! I totally know the 'stupid grin' that you're talking about because I have the exact same one on the rare occasion I get to go on a shopping excursion without my kids! Ha ha. I love it.
So I just wanted to tell you HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow! I always remember it because it's on St. Patty's Day. Hope you have a fun day! :)
Oh and I LOVE your naughty shoes! I want them. :)

Hey! It's totally okay that you got my blog from Rebecca's (I hope it's okay if I bookmark yours!). I think it's also totally okay that we're all in "different places." If you ever want to talk sometime, let me know; or if you want to just email, that's okay too. I don't want you to be stuck... if there's anything I can do, let me know:
