Cute Shoe Season



What's wrong with this picture? Yes, these are my feet and both pairs of shoes are my latest purchase. The shoe on the left is from JJill (one of my favorite stores) and the shoe on the right came from the hospital :(

I broke my foot....well, actually, my husband jumped down from a ladder and landed on my foot, which then broke ! Ouch! So, I must wear this "Darth Vader" "Franken Foot" "Robo Leg" shoe for 6 long weeks :#

The thing that I must confess...is that when the doctor told me this....I winced inside and said, "But that's the entire 'cute shoe' season!" These words just tumbled, unfiltered, out of my mouth...(a 'Carrie moment' from Sex in the City) and the very Earthy Doctor looked at me with a blank expression, which emulated what she thought my brain was, and just handed me the boot.

To add some misery to this situation...this happened just 4 days before my daughter's college graduation party, hosted by me, and about 65 people were coming to my house! We had about 7 different renovation projects that needed closure and I do most of the work. So, needless to say, the hubs took a few days off from his job.

I'm really not anything like Carrie, except for the fact that I do LOVE shoes. This boot has a huge wedge on the bottom, thus I am usually walking on my tipee toes with the other foot all for the sake of the "cute shoe season."

Seeing all of this in writing has left me feeling like a Carrie. Oh well.........

The one GOOD thing is that I have to sit here and have loads of bloggie visiting time AND....I get to play with beads and wire, my drafting book and really listen to the words of all my favorite music.

All of you have a great weekend....and try to avoid being around husbands on ladders :)

Dar...you crack me up. That boot is SO VADER! *giggle*

So funny to see the contrast in your feet. Your cute shoe foot is so perfect, dainty, all adorned with toe rings and an anklet and a gorgeous Jjill sandal...and then the record screeches: "Luke...I am your father!"

Your the best sis...I just love you beaucoup!

Love,
lil sis boho

wow! at first i thought the boot was for a knight's costume. of course, that would make no sense, but it was such an opposite of that other beautiful foot. (love the toe rings. i am always looking for comfortable ones but have yet to find any. suggestions?)

i hope you heal quickly! and on a bright note, you have to paint the toes of only one foot. hmmm...maybe that isn't so bright. well, the time will fly by.

your banner is gorgeous by the way. i love that picture of you.

I linked in from Boho's blog. I am sorry about your foot! The idea of all my husband's 6'2" body weight jumping on my foot makes me wince! Your poor tootsie! Still, if you scrapbook, then the summer of the Vader foot will make a great layout!

Have a great weekend! Rest up!

Wow. There's just no disguising that awful boot - even when it's paired with that sweet, manicured foot of yours!

I'm feeling sorry for you and giggling at the same time!

Sending a speedy recovery, lovely girl!

XOXO

Oh OUCH! And my husband was just up a ladder the other day that I was holding steady. I am glad this wasn't me, though sadly, I haven't bought really any cute shoes since the red polka dotted pumps back in March! Well, at least you can wear ONE cute shoe -- I hope it doesn't hurt too much, and that you heal quickly! And congrats on your daughter's graduation!
