I did it!

I now own a pair of Manolo Blahniks! They were 70% off, but still more than I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Michael is incredulous (and not in a good way). But just look at them! I can wear them to work for years. I wore them today and felt like I could conquer the world. I can now cross this item off my bucket list. Although, they are soooo comfortable, going back to regular shoes now would be like going back to coach after flying first class...

Here's my original Shoe Scheme post in which I planned to sell random stuff on ebay until I made enough to buy a pair. I never got around to doing that, but now that I've discovered the Nordstroms' designer shoe deep discount rack, I may have to.

Camp Grandma and Grandpa

Lily's in Florida with Grandma and Grandpa for a week - without us! It's going great, and I don't think she wants to come back. She probably realizes that back home her day won't consist of: pancakes for breakfast; rides on Grandpa's scooter; Chico; 2 trips a day to the pool; the Imaginarium; Grandma's world famous mac and cheese; after dinner games; evening movie.

Morning conversation and reading time with Grandpa, while Grandma sleeps in. My mom says I did the same thing as a kid.

Really Ma? Sprinkles on pancakes? What part of "easy on the sugar" did you not hear? :-)

At the nearby beach.

Helping Grandma make dinner. Lily's eating all sorts of things there she refuses to eat here.

We miss Lily a ton, but I'm so glad she's having fun. Thanks Mom and Dad, for making this memory.
