New Shoes!!

Thursday, July 10, 2008

I had gone shoe shopping last week with my friend Katie. She found these amazing pair of Playboy shoes (seen above). I wanted those shoes but, we are the same size shoe and she got there first, so I decided not to fight her for them!? She was so cute with them, she strutted around the store, and put them on right away when we got back to work because she just couldn't wait to wear them. She was literally beaming and feeling sexy just from new shoes! I Wanted those shoes, or I really wanted that same feeling. I made it my mission to find those shoes so, I went that night to hunt for them. I hit the jackpot when I found them (plus 4 other pairs that needed a good home)! It reminded me to do something just for me! We all need that. It doesn't have to cost a lot. I am a good shopper, I got all 5 pairs for about $90 total, and they were ALL designer! Can't beat that!! I also found that dress in the pic above, only $12!!! Hello!! I ran and got another one in red, and guess what size???Small!! WooHoo!

It made me think to when I did Nothing for myself, Absolutely Nothing. I always did for everyone else while I was on the back burner. I felt I didn't deserve anything. I am Not like that anymore!!!! I feel great about that, and I feel great about myself!! Boy, how things have changed!!

This blog is a just a reminder for us all to do something special just for ourselves.
New Shoes - $90
New Dresses - $25
Feeling good about doing something for myself - Priceless

    Great thoughts. If you don't take care of yourself, no one else will, and you won't be able to give fully to others that need you. It's all about the balance, and you definitely have it!

    Wow! You had a very successful shopping trip! Those are definitely some great finds. Any day you find a LBD (and a red one also) for such a terrific price is an awesome day.

    Good for you for treating yourself to something nice. Thanks for the reminder that great rewards feel even better than food. Put on those designer shoes and boogie, girl! emoticon emoticon

    You're right, we all need to do nice things for ourselves. And I'm glad you're now able to treat yourself as you deserve to be treated! But you know, you still think of others and do things for others - it was really sweet of you to give those shoes a good home. emoticon
