Milk Chocolate

Today is National Chili Dog Day, National Hamburger Day, and National Milk Chocolate Day.  You know which direction I'm going to go:

Milk Chocolate WOODEN shoes?  They should have rethought that from a marketing perspective.

Chocolate shoes in a box shaped like a purse!

If someone really really really loved me they would buy me some milk chocolate shoes to celebrate this historic day.  I'm just sayin'.

Scotch & Soda

As I mentioned last year, July 27th is a rather eclectic day.  For instance, it's Take Your Pants For a Walk Day, which I failed at again this year as I'm wearing a dress. It's also Bagpipe Appreciation Day, which is awesome in my book.  As I did both of those last year, this year I'm going with National Scotch Day.  Actually, that goes with the other themes.  The bagpipe-Scotch connection is obvious, but I think having some Scotch first might make taking your pants for a walk seem like a totally logical thing to do.  It turns out there is a line of shoes called Scotch & Soda, so here are a few selection:

I don't particularly love any of them, but nor do I hate any of them.  I'll let you decide if you love, hate, or are indifferent.

Puppets on Facebook

Today we left the house at 6:30 am and got home at 8:30 pm.  It was a rather long day.  To break it up some (and because I apparently don't have enough to do *cough* sarcasm *cough*) I logged into various Facebook accounts and had the puppets and Pedro converse with each other.  Very few people noticed.  Or possibly they did, decided I've completely lost my mind, and backed away very slowly.  Here are some Muppet shoes to commemorate my craziness:

I and the PB would like all of them, please.  The puppets would too, but they don't have any feet...

Red Shoe Day

Today is International Red Shoe Day, which is a day of remembrance and which you can read more about by clicking on that link.  So here are some red shoes.  Because remembrances are good.  And I like red shoes. 

I'm tired.  I'm tired of heat and I'm tired of headaches and I'm just tired in general.  So I'm leaving you with these (mostly) cute red shoes and taking my tired @$$ to bed.

Good Day!

I did 4 podcasts today.  I'm still trying to catch up on the Bible Study one, which I seem to be perpetually behind on. BUT I did 2 Book Review Podcasts with the Camp Friend (who is now the Author Friend) and we talked about both of her books!  As a reminder, they are Letters to Zell and New Charity Blues  and you should read both of them, because she is awesome.  And I had sooo much fun talking to her today.  It was an honor to have her as my first-ever podcast guest, and I hope I did her and her books justice because I really don't know what I'm doing yet on this whole podcast thingamabob.

I also just discovered that today is Auntie's Day!  I HAVE an auntie and I also AM an auntie.  Dangit, I should have been home to celebrate with everyone.  Rude.  I will say that I love my auntie very very much and am so grateful for everything she has done for and been to me in my life.  I am also proud to be an auntie and hope my nieces know how much I love them.

Try not to be too shocked, but I'm not really in a shoe mood tonight, so I'm just going to share a picture of me and my auntie:

Weren't we cute?

Also a picture of me and my dad's sister, who died a couple of year's ago and who I miss terribly:

And my twin aunties.  Of whom I clearly need a more recent picture:

Except how awesome is THIS picture?

And that is all.  The end.

Yesterday was the Bean's birthday.  I can't believe she is now a teenager.  It was just yesterday that she looked like this:

Awww...wasn't she the sweetest baby bean?  And I didn't post on her birthday.  Worst. Auntie. Ever.  I actually had the post planned and everything, just got tired and forgot to do it when I got home.  Anyway, she recently told me that purple is still her favorite color but that blue is also her favorite.  Sniff.  Sniff.  I'm so proud.  So here are some blue and purple shoes to help her celebrate her 2nd day of being an official teenager.

Love them.  I think we need matching auntie-niece shoes, don't you?

These are kind of weird and kind of fun.

If we wore the same size we could get both pairs and each wear one of each!

Yesterday was also Hammock Day, which sounded pretty fabulous.  I think the Bean and I could have definitely found a beach somewhere and hung out in a hammock to celebrate her birthday.  She likes flip flops, and these came up under hammock shoes.  I like the bright colors.

It's a whole series of fun hammock fleep flops!  I would even put up with the damn thing between my toes if it meant spending a day in a hammock with the Bean.

Happy Belated Birthday, Bean!

I had a massive headache today.  I've had headaches for most of my life, but for the past year or so I've been having really horrible menstrual migraines.  Pretty much nothing I take helps, which sucks.  Today was the lucky day for this month, and it was so bad it was making me nauseous (which happens frequently).  Thankfully it was a fairly slow day in the office so I was able to come home and sleep for awhile.  Stupid thing is still hanging in there, but it isn't bad if I don't move my head too much or too fast.  At least the nausea has subsided.  If anyone has any suggestions for this type of headache please share, because nothing I've tried so far has worked.

On a happy coincidence, today was Nap Day, so I celebrated accordingly for once!  It was also National Lollipop Day, which I did not celebrate, but which gave me the idea for shoes for tonight.

I love these!  I think the line is called lollipop, so it still fits even though the shoes have no actual lollipops on them.  Although maybe you can imagine it in an abstract sort of way?  PLUS, I actually know someone who owns this last pair!  See

And one pair with actual lollipops.  Because baby shoes are always appropriate.

Also, I have now had this song stuck in my head while writing this post. Love it.


Me and my headache are going to bed now, thankyouverymuch.
