November 6, 2007

Remember it from last year? The month of showing off your shoes? It’s like NaNoWriMo or NoBloPoMo, except for people who love shoes and may or may not be lazy. Oh, maybe I am projecting there.

Anyway, Susan keeps bugging me, “Where are the photos of your shoooooooes?” And I had to break it to her that I hadn’t really gone anywhere that required me to put on my cute shoes, and so I was wearing my slippers, maybe I should call them house shoes since they are actually shoes one could wear to walk outside and interact with people if I desired.

Today I am leaving the house to bring my daughter to the dentist and then a trip to to some store that I won’t name in case my husband is reading and feels the need to call me immediately and ask why the hell I a going there again. But my oldest son is having a birthday in a few days and I have yet to buy him a present.

I have no idea what shoes I am going to wear, since it looks like it might downpour at any minute. But my daughter has already dressed and picked out her shoes.

Day 6: NoBloShoeMo

She wants me to wear my “matching” Steve Madden leopard print wedges. We’ll see.

Oh, and go vote.

  2. arduous says:

    I want those shoes! Do they make them for the over 4 set?

  3. Lovebabz says:

    Are you crazy! Good thing my 5 year daughter wasn’t home to see these! JINKEES! I would have to tranquilizer her and tell her these shoes are all sold out…EVERYWHERE!

    I voted!

  4. Karen Vogel says:

    My littlest one was born hard-wired for shoes. I take her into Payless and her whole body starts quivering like an excited puppy. She runs to the nearest shelf and grabs shoes - anything sparkly will do - and starts sticking her little feet into them. It scares me.

  6. Dana says:

    Those shoes are adorable!

  7. sleeping mommy says:

    I’m so jealous of people with cute shoes. My feet are too damn wide and thick to wear any cute shoes. I can’t find any that fit. I’m stuck with Crocs and men’s sneakers.

  8. Geri says:

    I went 2 vote but it said i had voted less than 24 hrs ago… so i guess I will have to wait BUT I am very pleased to see your blog is gaining ground. You have a very loyal and mind boggling huge audience so there is no question that you should win!

  9. Fold My Laundry Please says:

    Let me guess…you’re headed off to Target! It’s like Disneyland for moms! Actually, I think I might need to head out there today, too…..

  10. She Likes Purple says:

    I’m participating! And am lazy!

  11. peepnroosmom says:

    Cute shoes!
    I voted.
    I know you are going to Target. Love Target.

  12. Brandi says:

    Ever since they built a Target less than 10 minutes from my house, I’m there almost daily. “But honey, it’s a SUPER Target! I have to go constantly for groceries.” My husband actually bought it for about the first week.

  13. carrie says:

    Have fun at Target!

    They have cute shoes there, too. And cheap!

  14. fidget says:

  18. Amy says:

    my 14 month old daughter’s first word after mommy and daddy was “shoes”.

  19. Andrea says:

    Hi Chris,

    I went to vote and I clicked on your name (Notes from the Trenches) and I swear that another button (the one for Amalah) lit up/turned brown like I had clicked it… but I didn’t!

    I am upset that it doesn’t show who I voted for.

    I think something is wrong with that site/links because I clicked yours!!

    Seriously, you should look into it.


  20. Andrea says:

    Oh yeah… and cute shoes.

    My daughter is 14, but I still feel compelled to ask “Where did you get those shoes? ‘Cuz, like maybe I can go buy them for a neice or someone!” LOL!


  21. lena says:

    After raising 3 sons….I am now the “Imelda Marcos” of shoes that are too cute and young for me.

    I would totally wear those shoes!!!

    I would also love to have a daughter …still….*sigh*

    I voted for ya! Any mom with that many boys deserves to win!!!!

  22. Amy says:

    So crazy cute!!

  23. Sarcastic Mom says:

    I love shoes.

    You are my new hero.

  24. Hollywood says:

    My two year old would be very interested in a month’s devotion to shoes. Costco sells a pack of 6 Disney princess slippers and she’s worn them every day for over a month now. It doesn’t matter that they are twice as long as her feet, it doesn’t matter that she has open blisters oozing from her toes, they are pretty shoes. By the way, that pic of the shoes in the post made both me and my two year old coo. What is it with women and shoes?
