Happy Fall!

OK, technically it won't be Fall here for another hour, but for those of you in the other time zones, you're already there.  I love Fall, it's my favorite season, and I miss it.  We get some leaves that change here, and some of them are very pretty, but it's not the same.  I miss crunching through a layer of leaves, kicking them, and jumping in piles of them.  Yes, I do know I'm very immature.  Let's celebrate the change of season with some shoes!

Hmmm...these don't make me want to celebrate.  These are frumpy.

But these are awesome!

These are OK.  Definitely on point theme-wise.

I actually really like the orange tennies.  I also love pictures of feet in leaves.  In fact, the PF posted one on Facebook of her shoes in the leaves in Idaho, and I was totally jealous.

I'm not as sure about the feather on these, but the colors are fun, and they almost look like stained glass.

Gingham.  Leaves.  Fun.

I am intrigued by these.  Hate the thing between the toes, but these are actually pretty cute.

So, Happy Fall!  Go out and  kick some leaves for me.

Sharpies Are NOT Chew Toys

Ohhhh, puppies.  They got ahold of a Sharpie today.  I found the insides of the marker, with the cap still on, in one part of the house, and the outside part that says Sharpie in another part of the house, chewed to within an inch of its life.  At least they chewed on the outside and not the ink.   Instead of chewing on the marker, they could have done something much more constructive with it.  Like make me some shoes:

Here is what these 10 pairs of shoes tell me:  The people who made these are waaaaaay more talented than I, and they might just have too much time on their hands.  If either or both of those facts describe you, would you like to make me some shoes?  Or teach my puppies how to do it?

Pastor-y Shoes

I had a lovely lunch today with a group of women pastors.   I knew 4 of them, and 3 were new.  I was super nervous going in for a couple of reasons:  First I wasn't sure if I remembered how to be social, second I haven't hung out with pastors for awhile, so I was worried about feeling awkward, and third, I was nervous that I would feel like an imposter since I haven't worked in a church since mid-February.  I did feel awkward, I did feel like an imposter, and it was hard to be social at times, but for the most part I'm really glad I went.

Now, I know you're going to be surprised, and maybe won't believe me, but I didn't look at a single pair of shoes that those 7 pastors were wearing.  I know!  I was surprised myself.  So I decided to go look see what the internet considers "pastor shoes."

These aren't bad, actually.  But I don't think I'd wear them.  I understand why crosses would be the theme for pastor shoes, but they are just a little too spot on.

These are pretty.  Still wouldn't wear them.  They look like tattoos.

Oooooh, sparkly.  What's up with the greenish-yellow soles?

I guess people who wear orthopedic shoes might want cross shoes, too?  Dang, these are ugly.

Still spot-on, but in a more funky way that I like a lot better.  These I might wear if they had a different heel.  I know, I know, stop being so picky.

Love the colors, ;ove the bible verse, like the shape of the cross.  Don't like the animal print or the heart with wings.  Take those and maybe the flowers away and I would probably wear them.

Holy crap.  I don't know what to say about these.  I would almost be tempted to wear them with my alb.  First, it would be funny, and second, seeing the looks on parishioners' faces would be awesome.

This is Luther's seal, and if I found some white canvas shoes with this painted on them, I would actually wear them.  But just this, I think.  Not a lot of other floof.  I'd also do this as a fifth tattoo if I were to get another.

So what I learned today is as much as I normally like a theme shoe, I think I'll stick with crosses on my wall and as necklaces.

Not So Sure

As I was out and about (oot and aboot) today I saw this seasonal cookie:

I'm not so sure about these.  They might be fabulous.  Or they might just be weird.  I would actually try them if I didn't have to buy an entire bag.  And if my gums were healed enough.  I really don't feel like getting oreo cookie out of the holes in my gums...

So I thought I'd go looking for Caramel Apple shoes, but didn't find much.  These were referred to as caramel apple, and I can see why.  They're also really cute.  I like the color combination.

Ooooh, caramel! I want to lick this.  Which is cool.  It's also disturbing because I should NOT want to lick shoes.  This shoe is made out of recycled PVC pipe, which is cool.  They're soooo shiny.  

Combine this pair with the above pair and you definitely get caramel apple.  These aren't the cutest baby shoes ever, but they aren't horrible.

And finally some oreo shoes, since that's where we started.  And witch shoes since it's Fall and Halloween is coming up.  These are adorable.  Maybe I should get the caramel apple oreos and make green and brown oreo shoes.  No idea what I would do with them, but it might be fun?

I know you'll be shocked, but I'm going to bed as soon as I post this.  I'm like a "normal" person tonight!

The Only Cats That Don't Make Me Sneeze

SKD and I have tendency to send each other pictures of our snuggly pets.  I send her pictures of the puppies...

...and she sends me pictures of her kitties:

She also has a Chihuahua (mixed with something else) but the snuggly pictures are usually of the cats.  The hubby loathes cats.  I don't dislike cats, actually thing they're pretty cute, but they are the thing I am allergic to the most.  When I had the allergy scratch test done the cat scratch (heehee) turned into a welt that was ginormous.  But hopefully kitty shoes won't make me sneeze.

For some reason sometimes when I glance at these I think they are elephants.  So maybe not the best cat shoes int he world.

A peep toe wedge booty with cats.   That's just a little too much for me.

These scare me.  Why does that cat want to eat my liver?

Now these I think are cute.  Simple and basic.  I like 'em.

I admit it.  I love these.  I want them for Halloween.  And other days.

No.  These make me think of a crazy cat lady.

Speaking of crazy...

Hmmmm...if only I could trick the hubby into wearing these to work...

Adorable.  I would wear these on all of the days.

There are a ton of cat shoes out there.  I might have to do another post on them one of these days.  But there are no snuggling cat shoes that I could find.  More's the pity.  Now if you'll excuse me I have to go get my normally adorable and snuggly puppies to stop attempting to to rip each other's throats out.  It's like the Nature Channel in here right now.

Pumpkins Everywhere

I'm sure you've noticed that once September hits pumpkin flavors appear everywhere.  Starbucks brings back the pumpkin spice latte, in the stores I've seen pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin cookies, even pumpkin yogurt (which I can't bring myself to try).  Facebook even has a page titled Pumpkin Flavored Everything  I like pumpkin, but not as much as others seem to.  I've tried the latte periodically, but never more than once a Fall.  I like pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving.  I'm a fan of pumpkin cake and pumpkin soups.  I rarely carve my Halloween pumpkins so I can chop them up later and make puree for the freezer.  However you feel about them, it's Pumpkin-palooza right now.  Obviously this means we need some pumpkin shoes:

Despite the decorations already out, it's not Halloween yet, so we're only going with pumpkins, nothing overtly Halloween-y. How cute are these little baby shoes?

Apparently babies are fond of dressing seasonally.

And small children, too.  I love the polka dots on the shoes and on the ribbons.

Dang, another pattern I need to find.  Actually, I think I could probably figure these out without a pattern.  Too bad I don't know any babies who need pumpkin shoes.

These crack me up.  The pumpkin shaped backs are funny enough, but I have no idea whats going on in the front.  Are they supposed to look like the roll?  Maybe they're supposed to look like Cinderella's carriage?   I'm coming down firmly on no for these.  I don't even want to wear them as a theme.

Enjoy all of the pumpkininess, however you choose to do so!

I am JUST now getting in bed because I JUST now finished a giant project for the hubby. I've decided to blame him for my wonky sleep patterns. He's asleep so he can't defend himself. Oh well. A quick check of Facebook provided me with this cute shoe from SBP, so I pass it on to you:

One pair will have to do for tonight. In my opinion these are cute enough to tide us over until the next post. (Am I just tired or does that back foot look disembodied?)
