Gift for me. (tee hee!)

Deck the halls with forts and clutter.
Fa-la-la-la-la. La, la, la, la.
Tis the season to drive nuts the muh’der.
Fa-la-la-la-la. La, la, la, la.
Mommy needs a special treat.
Fa-la-la-la-la-la. La, la, la.
Red and festive for her feet.
Fa-la-la-la-la. La, la, la, la.
Disclaimer: Yes, we are still totally Advent Conspiracing. This is really not a Christmas gift for myself. It is the 4th pair of shoes I’ve bought online this fall and the only pair I haven’t returned. I think I’ve paid more in shipping for returning shoes, than the shoes actually cost. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven’t bought new shoes for work in about 5 years. I’ve always wanted red Mary-Jane style shoes. Everyone tells me to try out Danskos. Problem? The price tags. But when I found some red Mary-Jane Danskos for $40, I bit the bullet and ordered them. Aren’t they cute!?
