Mommy Mondays: Mondays can be a Special Kind of Crazy

As a working mom, experiencing a Monday is kind of like living in the Twilight Zone . This morning I had a meeting downtown at 8:30 AM.   The meeting was at a different place and earlier than I usually work. Since I live near downtown and it was a nice day I decided to walk . I was excited to walk because usually I drive to work. Also, I was proud of myself since walking was a green choice. Walking took planning. Walking meant that I had to wear flats and I had to select clothes that went with them. I have a lot of clothes, but at 5’2” I usually wear stilettos.   However, there’s no way that I could teeter all the way to the meeting in heels.   I settled on a pair of persimmon colored Franco Sarto loafers with a slight heel.

Endless love...

For all of you shoe lovers out there. You have to check out this site called They have a wonderful selection of shoes and handbags. Also, they have free overnight shipping-- F-R-E-E!!! It was love at first sight. I found so many that I wanted. Finally, I settled on three pair of pumps. They miraculously appeared overnight. And they were better than I expected. The navy and carmel were beautiful and practical. However, the leopard, calf hair, pair were sexy and wild. Shoes are a reflection of your life, but they are also a form of expression. You can decide what my shoes say about me... :-)
