Kick Your Shoes Off And Stay Awhile….
So I’m getting ready to go out today and go to the closet to get my shoes. I scanned the floor, looked in my shoe organizer, and realized they both looked strangely bare.
I’m a world class shoe-kicker-off’er so I went to the place where I spend the most time sitting in the house – a makeshift desk set up behind the sofa so I can write and not feel I’m neglecting my family. After running my hands under my little work space, I came up with this:
(Don’t judge me on the dust bunnies or the Nerf dart, ‘kay?)
And no, they weren’t lined up this neatly when I found them. I didn’t bother to mop but I sure didn’t want you to see the disarray that was my under-the-desk shoe collection. (Be sure you notice The Shoes are among the pile.)
After I took this picture, I was forced to come to grips with my affection for The Wedge. I’m told by my friend Michele the first step in conquering addiction is to admit the problem. Does anyone know what comes next? Because here is where I fall off the wagon. I’m always one good sale away from a wedge-buying relapse.
So now that I’ve found my shoes I suppose now would be a good time to relocate them back to the closet where they belong. And mop. Yes, mopping would be a good thing.
And in the spirit of the forever rockin’ June Cleaver, I think I’ll do that in heels.
girl, I share your love for the wedge! I have the cutest strappy straw sandals with a wedge heel that I love, love, love!!!
Stop by my blog and see what the doc just told me about my feet and my cute shoes!
“See children? That’s what happens when you dabble in shoes. You start with a flip-flop here, a ballet flat there. Before you know it, you’re buying wedges at Payless and hiding them all over your house for those times you need ‘a little lift.’ Be warned.”
Girl, don’t be ashamed of your wedge addiction. Own it and proclaim it. It’s okay – I’m with you. Especially because of those FABULOUS ones 2nd from the front with the pattern on the heel. I definitely wouldn’t relocate them to the closet. They’re made to be seen.
Again, own it, my friend. Be a happy wedge addict.
Everything is elegant in heels! LOL
Girl I am with you. I am almost embarrassed though at the amount of shoes that I have in my closet. I kick them off everywhere!
Girl I am so honored that you stopped by my blog…wink wink!

Ummm, I have no idea what the next step is after admitting that you have a problem… because I’m a sucker for The Wedge also. Sorry, can’t help you. Not one bit. Oh wait! I think those three middle ones would look maaahvelous in my closet or under my desk. You know, if it’ll help you…
Thanks for stopping by today. It really did mean a lot. And thanks for clearing up the question about the Bible Study. =0)
I think you could give June Cleaver a run for her money in some of those sassy shoes!
Yes, I DO understand! All my shoes end up by my chair in the den. My husband is very organized and his shoes are always either on his feet of on the rack.
Let the dust bunnies live… after all, they never hurt anyone!
Like a typical girl, I clicked on the photo so it would be larger on my screen as to get a better look at the shoes…fun, fun! Jeanette
I am so glad I am not the only person who kicks my shoes off all over the place. Greg thinks its horrible to find my shoes all over the house…but when I look around, his are more scattered than mine. And as far as the dust bunnies, we have a farm of them!
Can a girl have too many wedges!?!? I think not…carry on!
Hey there, Preacher’s Wife —
For some reason, your e-mail link and my computer don’t get along. So, I will add myself to your blogroll when my ministry web site is finished in early summer… That way I won’t have to try and add info retroactively. (Thanks for the comment on my blog.)
BTW, I have deep admiration for women who still wear heels while chasing after children! Since our 3rd came into our life, I’m back to flats. :o)
This is hilarious! I have a place where I kick off my shoes also. It’s gets bad. Pretty bad!
You are hilarious. Shoe ‘nuf!
And P.S. Forget coveting the shoes! I want that gorgeous floor!!
Ditto, so glad I am not the only one, and that there are more shoe kicker offs in the world. Have missed connecting with you, the move was so sudden and hectic,n love always me
Oh, I am so glad to know there are others who share my shoe-kicking-off malady! My space is the corner of my dining room. I swear the shoes go there to get away from me…
Which pair is dedicated for squishing bugs?
classy looking shoes
