Shoeper Challenge #55

These are the shoes I wore Thursday Feb. 9.  They’re my go-to red shoes for winter.  Very comfortable, but again, I have no idea why it’s taken me this long to photograph myself wearing them.  I also have no explanation for why I almost just typed JANUARY 9.  I could see if I wrote 2011 by mistake, but it’s like all of January just went by too fast or something.  Oh well.  At least I corrected it before I clicked “publish.”


Feeling crafty today

With Valentine’s day quickly approaching, I took advantage of a relatively quiet Sunday to make some goodies for the girls to bring to school on Tuesday.

For Veronica’s class, I made my first attempt at Bakerella‘s cake balls (  They’re very weird to make, so I hope they come out good.  I made them with strawberry cake, vanilla icing mixed in, and I’m going to dip them in pink melting chocolate.

The recipe I made for Sabrina’s class is just as cute, doesn’t have a weird name, and was VERY easy.  Like, so easy, I could hardly believe they came out to be both tasty and adorable.  Here’s a link to the recipe, and a picture of how they actually came out when I was done with them:

Shoeper Challenges #52, 53, and 54

These pictures were taken Jan. 25, 26, and 31.  Since it’s Superbowl Sunday, I’m sure nobody cares about my shoes (even if they might on other days), but when I start something, I get all perfectionist and almost always finish it.  So aren’t you glad there’s only a few more pairs left?

I also realized all 3 of these outfits include at least one thing I got for Christmas!  🙂

Here I am on Jan. 25 in my leopard flats, which are one of my favorite pairs, so I can hardly believe it took me this long to wear & photograph them.  The blazer in this one was a Christmas gift.


Here I am in head-to-to gray on Jan. 26.  These shoes were a Christmas gift, and go perfectly with these charcoal tweed-ish textured pants.

Last, but not least, is another one of my favorite pairs.  These are actually my 2nd pair of Aerosoles “high stride” boots, because I loved the first pair into the ground.  I went all black & white with these, and met 4 separate work deadlines this day, Jan. 31.  Crazy times, and February’s looking just as crazy.  In this one, the skirt was the Christmas gift.

So there you have it.  Merry Christmas and Happy Superbowl Sunday!
