Sweet ride

My good friend has the connections and I got to take a ride in this baby today.
What is that you may ask?
That, my friend, is what is known as the
And apparently it is one of a kind.
It's outside overflows with school spirit
and it's insides smell of crayons.

I'm in love with these shoes.

I saw them at Dillards the other day and have been thinking about them ever since. It must be love.

It's been over 10 years since I've owned a pair of red shoes, not because I don't like red shoes but mainly because when you or your husband have been in school nonstop since you were married, practicality is usually what I go for when I shop.
But I don't want to be practical.

I don't even know if the shoe would be comfortable (you know, for a heel) or if it's available in my size (9) but these shoes would work with jeans, skirts, or dress pants...I can see myself in them!

And yet, although I have spent as much on shoes before, practicality wins again because the cost deters me.

My only hope is...
maybe they'll go on sale.
Check them out here at Dillards, but beware,
you may also be hit by Cupid's arrow.

P.S. They also come in nude if you're a size 10.

I've been in a funk lately, not about anything specific just everything in general! Does that make sense? It's okay if it doesn't because it doesn't make much sense to me. I think it all began with our entire household being sick a few weeks ago. My brain and body have just been all jumbled since then. Before we got sick, I was on a great workout schedule and could really feel myself getting stronger each day. On Monday I started working out again and even though I only missed two weeks of working out, I just feel weak now. My body won't do the things that I was doing before I got sick and I've been exhausted all weak. For crying out loud, it was only the stomach flu/a cold/and possibly the regular flu all mixed together and passed among the three of us!

I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not in past blogs, but I recently figured out that I need to exercise even if sometimes I don't want to. Exercise helps me regulate myself - my emotions, my physical health, everything - somehow it ends up motivating me in all aspects of my life. I discovered that I feel happier when I consistently exercise and it's easier for me to find joy in everyday life. So, perhaps, this current funk I'm in stems from missing two weeks of exercise and I just need this week to start things over again and trigger my endorphins. I'm not sure but I do need to change something up whether it is dive more into daily scripture study, watch a good movie, change up my blog header (which really does need a change), go shopping or do something artistic. I'm open to suggestions!

On another note, the new Jane Eyre comes out in theaters today, if you happen to be lucky enough to live close to one of the select theaters where they are showing it. We, unfortunately, do not happen to be so lucky and I will just be patient and wait for it on Netflix.

{P.S. For those of you reading this and smirking to yourself, no, I am not pregnant.}
