Sisterhood of the Traveling Shoes

Look what I got in the mail yesterday!

I won something! (Thanks, Thelma!!) I get to keep these adorable shoes for a month, and blog about it. Then I get to send them on to the next lucky gal!

Several weeks ago I saw a post on While They Sleep, that peaked my interest. (Actually my interest is usually peaked there. She is very talented, inspiring, and fun. And I love the title of her blog.) I read the whole post and was really wanting to find out about Thelma's shoe adventures.
I checked out Thelma's blog and entered the drawing. I also found out that we know some of the same people. I grew up with her sister-in-law and she is in my sister's ward right now. Anyway, she keeps a very interesting blog!

So where did these shoes start, you ask? I hope I'm getting this right. They started with this lovely lady Diane (Thanks, Diane! What a fun idea)! Diane sent them to Christie (a talented, crafting blogger. Check out her blog). From Christie they went to Thelma. And now they're with me!

Now my challenges are to: find things to wear them with, remember to take pictures of me wearing them (and take good pictures - I struggle with that all the time), get my toe nails painted and looking much cuter than they look right now (I also struggle with that frequently), blog about the adventures, and most importantly get enough readers that this can be fun and they can go to someone I don't yet know, who lives far away (but if I do know you personally you could still be a contender, obviously). Can you guys help me with that last one? Spread the word, will ya?!

The thing about these shoes is they're size 9. Lucky for me, I am a size 9. I used to be size 8. Then my feet got a bit bigger with each kid. (I want to be done having kids, even if it's just for that reason... j/k). Anyhoo. I tried them on right away and I think someone with narrow feet or people with size 7 1/2 - size 9 feet, could wear these.

I hope to have a giveaway contest around march 3rd, to pass them on to the next lucky lady.

A super surprise about the package was the Dark Chocolate Flipz. (Thanks, Thelma! So nice of you)! Yum! I had never tried them before, but now I'm hooked! I am loving dark chocolate these days. (That's another story.)

Where should I wear these?? You'll have to check back to find out.

See you soon!
