About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

I got these babies last week.

Aren't they gorgeous? Come to mama.

Let me just take a moment to say how much I love DSW. And the clearance racks at the back of the store. And the $10 gift card I got for signing up to their rewards program. All of which enabled me to save $78.04 on these lovely ladies.

Yes, seventy-eight dollars. I paid $31.96 which means these shoes were originally $110. Not too bad.

Guess what brand they are.

Now was that funny, or was that funny?

Do you want to know what I love the most? No more cheesy jokes, I promise.

The bow. But it's like a half-bow. You stare at it and you're like, "is it a bow, or is it not a bow?"

Answer: It's a half-bow.

I am a little worried about the height. Four inches. I measured it with a ruler. Seriously. And man, are those ever skinny heels. I was thinking I might wear them for graduation, but I'm afraid I would fall over on stage and embarrass myself in front of hundreds of people.

And that would be bad.

So, now for your help. You know how I feel about shoes. I love them. And I love these. And, just as if my shoes were my children, I name them.

But I can't come up with a good one.

So please help me.

You wouldn't want these beauties to be without a name, would you?

Would you?


  1. My first inclination is "Hooker Heels" but you probably won't like that so much..........

  2. I'm not that opposed to "hooker heels" but I already have a pair of boots I affectionately call "hooker boots." It would be like naming my children Bob and Bobette.

  3. rename the boots --- hooker heels goes together because both start with "H". The boots need another name!
