oh my gosh OR, the shoes!

okay, first thing’s first. yesterday was kind of busy. i went into the bakery we’re using and ordered our cake(s). it’s gonna be awesome, i promise. and delicious. mmm i can’t wait. i also addressed all the invitation envelopes. it took two hours to do 21 envelopes. whatever. my normal handwriting looks like a 10-year-old boy’s, so i wrote them in cursive, and that made it take a lot longer. never mind that my cursive looks like a 10-year-old boy who just learned to write in cursive’s. cursive = fancy = a little messy is ok.
today i bought the stamps and sent them off. here they are all ready to travel to you (maybe). yes, those are wedding ring stamps. ballin’.

fly safely, little invites!
so, if you’re invited, you should be getting one of these in your mailbox soon. if you don’t receive one, it doesn’t mean we don’t love you. it means we’re too poor for you. we (probably) love you very much. please still buy us a present from our registry. we love presents.

on that note (that segue doesn’t actually make sense outside of in my brain, i apologize), today MY SHOES came in!!!
let me tell you a little about these shoes. i have known all along EXACTLY what kind of shoes i want. this is like, the ONE thing i am super picky about for the wedding. dress? what’s cheap and looks good on me and is in my size in the store. veil? birdcage, can find it. place? somewhere cute and outdoors. food? whatever, as long as it’s cheap and tasty and vaguely healthy. husband? whoever. oh, just kidding. no, i’m picky about the husband too. but the shoes. these shoes are like the first child to go to college out of twenty five generations of a family. i’m not kidding. i went to at the very LEAST 25 stores looking for shoes like these. THEY DO. NOT. EXIST. in greenville. i went to 2 rosses, 3 paylesses, tj maxx, marshalls, every store in the mall (belk, dillards, jc penney, sears, macys, nine west, every other store that possibly looked like it might sell shoes), off-broadway shoe warehouse, 2 shoe carnivals, the other shoe-named-store that i can’t remember, old navy just in case, walmart, target… they seriously don’t exist. so i decided to order them online.

the problem with that is that i have weird feet. i’m a 7 1/2, but my feet are wide. my arches are almost flat. i over-pronate something terrible. and a lot of shoes that are wide enough for me to fit my feet into, are too long. so the internet is a scary shoe-place for me, and i left it as my last resort. that’s why i spent two entire days driving all over town looking for shoes. i’m insane, i don’t care. i want my shoes.

but i found them. i did find them online, and several backup ones as well. i ordered ones from a brand i had worn before, hoping the same size would still fit even in a completely different style. i kept a backup pair bookmarked just in case these got here and didn’t fit. but they do. they aren’t the comfiest things ever, but it’s worth it.

here they are, the shoes of my dreams:

little shoes, i’m so glad you’re here.

    Wow…what an odyssey! Finding reasonably priced in my size that fit comfortably and I actually really like is a miracle for me…so I understand you all too well. I’m so happy these worked out for you. They’re cute!

    Oh…I’m glad the husband thing worked out too! : )
