Happy Humpday!!! While I’m still not excited about the crappy news from yesterday, I will say that today has been a better day overall.
First, I’m feeling better. My throat is still bothering me (I just can’t seem to keep it clear?), but it’s much better now than it has been for the past week.
Second, yesterday was bad. Period. And I don’t want a repeat. Everyone has bad days and I think it’s okay to wallow in it sometimes – having a pity party is healthy every now and then, but I think I got that out of my system yesterday.
So – moving on!
A few of you asked for pictures of my new shoes and hat that I got for our trip to Spain, so here they are!
I got these shoes (made by Naturalizer) for $35 at TJMaxx this weekend, and I’m psyched about them!
They look so cute with jeans (which is what I was hoping for) and they *feel* like I’m wearing super-comfy tennis shoes (which is what I needed for all the walking we’ll be doing).
The strap across the top is completely stretchy, too, and they have a thick rubber sole.
I’m actually wearing them today for a little “test run”. They were so comfortable when I tried them on in the store, but I knew I should wear them at least a few times before taking them with me for a week in Spain.
So far, so good. My feet feel great, and I love that I won’t have to wear really clunky tennis shoes on the trip.
And my new hat – which I love.
It’s black and white, and has these cute clasps on the side. I’ve never, ever had a hat like this.
In fact, ALL my other hats are winter beanies, so I’m pretty excited to have a cute girly hat. And it was only $10 at Target.
For the record, it’s super hard to get a cute picture of yourself in the mirror – I either looked totally unhappy or I wasn’t looking AT the camera ;) Oh well. You get the picture.
I think I have all my trip clothes planned out in my head (or most of them, at least), but maybe I’ll do a post with that so I can get your input. Since I’ve never traveled like this, I just want to make sure I don’t forget anything and that I’m packing the right things!
Calling for Guest Posts!
Sadly, I’m not taking my laptop with me on this trip. We’re going to be moving from town to town, and I’m already going to have to be carrying my luggage, so I don’t want to have to worry about something happening to it or – God forbid – me losing it!
I’m pretty sure my sister or her husband will have one, so I’m expecting internet access at some points, but blogging may be sporadic.
If you’d like to do a guest post here while I’m gone, please email it to me! I’d love to have some of your recipes or ideas or whatever you want!
