Momma's got a "new" pair of shoes!


Those of you who know me well know that I am not a "pajama" or even a sweat's wearing girl. I wear them but at home. NEVER OUT SIDE! Not that I am super dressy because I am not that either. I am a jeans and t-shirt girl. I just like to be "fully dressed", and put together when I go out. Not that I think it is wrong for others to wear sweats. I just don't choose to for my own comfort level. Well Monday morning (Hayden's birthday) I was in a big rush. We needed to go pick up Larry's pay check, go to the bank, get gas, go to Costco, and Waremart! Oh and on top of it because it is Hayden's birthday I am required by law to make Mickey Mouse pancakes for breakfast. So we rushed through the morning getting ready and headed out to do our errands quickly since the boys get out of school an hour early on Monday plus Amelia and I do preschool with our friend Lucia at 12:30.... So we are in the race! I get half way to Salem and realize..... I DIDN'T PUT MY SHOES ON!!!! I am still wearing my slippers!!! I thought I will turn around and go get my shoes and I realize the gas light is on! I won't make it if I do!!! So I am stuck running all my errands in my slippers!!! I had to call Larry and tell him what I did he of course Laughed because he knows me very well, and of course Allison had a good laugh as well because she knows me well enough to know how painful this was for me. In fact she even suggested just like Larry did that I buy a pair of shoes while I was out. I figured it wasn't worth the financial repercussions so off I went in my slippers. I know a lame post but I had to share my embarrassment and see if there is anyone else in the world who might feel the same way?

I'm an "always wear my shoes - even in the house" kind of person. On rare occasions I'll wear slippers around the house. Once I forgot to put on my shoes before going up to the church to do clerky stuff, and even though it was 11:30 at night I was nervous that someone would show up and see me in public without proper shoes.

How dumb is that? :+)

I wear my slippers around the house and they are the kind that potetially could be worn outside (with the hard bottom) and have been known to accidentally not slip them off before going somewhere, nothing like going on an all day errand excursion 30 minutes away, but I have felt like a complete idiot for walking around with bright red slippers on. BTW cute monkey cake, glad it turned out.

I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb when I recently forgot to change my brown sandals that I was wearing into my black dress shoes while dressed for my mom's funeral earlier in the day. I did get them changed in time for the funeral though.

That sounds like something I would
do. Brent and I went to visit my grandpa a few weekends ago and i had forgotten my church shoes, so I had to wear my tennis shoes to church. Luckily it was stake conference so I didn't have to walk around a lot!
