these shoes were made for walkin’ (down the aisle)

There was a box on my front porch when I got home.
In that box there are three more boxes.
In those boxes are shoes.

SHOES FOR THE WEDDING!!!
OHMYGODIMSOEXCITEDICANHARDLYSTANDMYSELF!!!

I was home alone with this box of shoes.
I pranced, skipped, hopped, danced, ran, jumped, and “foot popped” in my perfect shoes. I sent photos to Thing 1 and Thing 2. I sent photos to Sundance. Nobody responded.
I pranced around a little bit more and called Thing 2. Voicemail. UGH!
Little bit of James Brown inspired foot work and called Sundance. Voicemail. COME ON!
Little hop, skip and a jump and called Thing 1…”Hi Momma.” (Success!)

YBW came home right as I was getting off the phone with Thing 1 and he started opening the box. I said: I want you to see mine last.
I showed him Thing 1’s classic pumps. She has really weird looking toes and refuses to wear open-toed shoes, which really limits her choices. These Badgley Mischka’s are FIERCE! (Who let Stacy London up in here?)

They’re going to be fuchsia.

Thing 2’s Pelle Moda shoes are a bit stripper-ish but so very, very Thing 2.

These are my shoes. They’re going to be navy even though there is a little “something blue” on the bottom.

I was so excited to show YBW that I was literally panting!
I pointed at my feet and said: These make it real! Not this!(pointing at my ring) These! I’m going to marry the most perfect boy in the most perfect shoes and it’s going to be the most perfect day ever!

He said he’s never seen me so excited in all the years he’s known me. He just watched me with this great big smile on his face. (While I literally grabbed him by his upper arms and shook him while I was panting and squealing.) That man absolutely loves me. He must, I totally told him my shoes are better than my diamond. Luckily he knows me well enough to know what I mean.

Thanks, UPS man, for coming to my house today! SUPER SMILEY Robynbird!

  1. I am so excited about your upcoming nuptials, and will keep you in my hopes and prayers! Hugs, Robin

  2. I love those shoes, but I am weird, if I ever get married again, (I have done this 3 times and may never do it again) I will wear flip flops, I am serious my friend!! I admire the beauty in your high heeled shoes which will look marvelous and you will float down the aisle! 🙂 🙂

    • I am also a flip flop girl! But those little button and bow shoes captured my heart for my trip down the aisle! They’re absolutely perfect for my vision and comfy to boot! If it wasn’t October, I might have considered being barefoot…YBW might die! He’s always suggesting I put on “proper” shoes. 😉

      • Glad you won’t be “killing” the groom off by wearing no shoes, Robyn! I once was a barefoot bride but not the first time around. . . Behave yourself and all will fall into place.

      • I think it’s because he’s not Southern…
        Or perhaps he just likes his feet covered. I don’t know.
        I’m a bit odd, I adore shoes but prefer to be barefoot.
        These wedding shoes are absolute perfection and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  3. This post brightened my afternoon. Congrats! I will happy for the day when my man comes along and I can get married.

    • Thank you! I’m glad my joy helped your day become brighter. I waiter 38 year for this man to com into life, forty four to become his wife. I wish you every possible happiness in finding your right one. ❤
