**Update:  I’m going with the kitten heels for the ceremony AND will get the gladiators for the honeymoon!  Thanks for the input!!**

I love J.Crew…it’s my go-to store.  They make cute clothes with pants that are long enough (praise God!), that fit my shape, and fit my vibe.  You’ll probably remember me drooling over this clutch before I got it through my thick head that $200 was too much to spend on a very small (though very cute) one trick pony.

Anyhoo, still need shoes for the reception.  I’m wearing silver heels for the ceremony and that’s probably how long my feet will last in them.  Then it’s time for comfort so that I can shake my tail at the reception.  Here are my options…all are under $100:

Espadrilles…usually I’m not a fan of wedges (how do you walk in them?!), but these aren’t too tall…

I like these kitten heels, kinda fancy (the reception is in a Victorian mansion), but still can boogy in them (these are a bit over $100)…

I think these are my least fave…a version of gladiator sandals…

My summer staple:  flip flops…

Okay, seriously people…I need feedback.  Which one is your favorite?  I’d really like to check this off of my to-do list this week.  Remember my dress is ivory and tea length…and I have gigantically large feet (size 11’s) so I can’t have a shoe that makes them look bigger than they already are.


facebook friends

This article is in this month’s Essence magazine…talking about how Facebook is tough on relationships.  Full disclosure: I’m not on Facebook.  People keep asking me, but I guess I don’t get it.  I suppose it’s nice for staying in touch with folks and whatnot…but enough of my friends and The Mister are on it that I can keep up with everyone I know through them.  And according to this article, maybe I’m on to something!

Basically, it says it’s TMI for new relationships.  You meet dude out, he seems cool, y’all chat all night, exchange numbers, he calls (that night!) and y’all talk some more.  Promising, right?  Until y’all friend each other on Facebook and you see that he’s got a lineup of hussies as “friends”.  Or that he’s got some, um, interesting insights.  Just little stuff that’ll extinguish a burgeoning fire.  Or you go crazy and stalk him on Facebook and try to figure out who’s commenting on his page and who exactly she is to him…no mystery.

She also talked about married couples who stopped being “friends” so that there wasn’t jealousy over something that’s innocent.  It all sounds a bit kooky to me.

Are you on Facebook? Are you friends with your honey? Have you ever gotten stalky on Facebook?
