    back home with new shoes

    We’re home again! I could go on and on about how nice it is to be back at the beach or how nice it is to be able to cook in my big, clean kitchen or how much Baby Bug missed her dad…. OR I could just blog about how cute these shoes are instead!

    So cute! I’m such a sucker for miniature adult things. Forget flowers and bows, bugs and loopy stitching, it’s all about the mini versions for me. These shoes are like little vans, except they aren’t. They’re some cheap copy-cat brand from Payless. You can tell I don’t get out shopping much any more. I’m sure there are a bazillion other cute van-type shoes for babies but these just grabbed me and made me buy them. I was looking for sandals and came home with these. Hmmmm… her toes won’t be cool and breezy but she’ll be the hippest skater baby on the block.

    Speaking of not getting out shopping much anymore, I went to Target today with my mom and I was bombarded (BOMBARDED!) with all the cute adorable buyable stuff. I just cannot set foot in there. It makes me almost physically ill. Why do they makes so many cute things? Why do they make me feel like I must buy these cute things in order to have a cute happy life? This is so wrong. I do not have the cute adorable funds for these cute adorable things. And you can’t give in either. If you buy just one item, it weakens your resolve and next thing you know you’re checking out with $75 dollars worth of merchandise that you really do not have places for in your home. It’s just evil.

    I don’t think Target is doing anything differently than anybody has ever done since the beginning of consumerism but I do think that I am finally the target market for a majority of their designers and buyers and let me just say that they have me dialed in like Flynn. I just cannot buy anything at all.

    Somehow all that will power didn’t stop me from going to the shoe store next to Target. Baby Bug needs some sandals and one thing lead to another. None of their sandals met my criteria but aren’t her new slip-ons cute?

    It looks like Baby Bug doesn’t like her new shoes and she is trying to get them off. Don’t worry, she likes them. She calls them her “BuuuhBBle shoes” (except she says “shoes” more like “sheees” for some reason). She is trying to get them off in that one picture but only because she wants to drag me down to the “wah-whoo” so she can play in the waves. She loves the water. Any kind of water. It’s “wah-whoo” this and “wah-whoo” that at our house these days. She’s so funny.

    Have I told you she says 49 words now? Forty-nine! She’s going to be a jabberbox just like her mom. A jabberbox with cute shoes.
