A Little of This, A Little of That

A. and I spent the weekend in multiple festivities for our friend's Pakistani wedding. The fabrics! The cutsoms! the rituals! THE FOOD!

Also, it was so wonderful to finally see H. and B. get married. They have wanted this for a long time. Oh, it was a wonderful, wonderful weekend!

And I got dressed up for the occasion. He looked SO HOT. I will upload a picture later.


The left front tire on the truck is pointing left, and the right front tire is pointing right.


We still have to get three more cords of fire wood, and our truck isn't going anywhere for a while. Oh, 2010 can suck it.


I wore "grown up" shoes to work last week for half a day. (2" slingbacks). My right big toenail is purple as a result. So, screw grown up shoes! I am sticking to sandals and flip flops and frumpy clogs.

My heels are SO FREAKIN' NARROW that I can't wear pumps or slip ons. Even mary janes fall off. I literally just walk out of my shoes. Sometimes I can manage sling-backs, as I can tighten the back strap enough. But usually, I just smoosh my feet into the shoes, and my toes pay the price. I am a quadruple narrow (AAAA), and it is IMPOSSIBLE to find shoes in that size. It is nearly impossible just to find narrow shoes (A).

It sucks SO BAD.

I just want some pretty shoes, dammit.


The upcoming weekend A. and I are traveling to my hometown for my step-grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary. I get to see all three nephews on my side! I bought the 5-year-old a canister thing with a built-in magnifier to catch and look at bugs. I got the two-year-olds these microphones to sing into. They just have holes in the front and back and sort of amplify noise. No battieries or anything. I also got all three of these cute little squeezy fish things to squirt water in the tub.

I hope they like the gifts.

I am exhausted, but I cannot wait to see these three kids play together. Wahoo!


After hanging out with all of B. and H.'s family over the weekend, I am really looking forward to seeing all my family this weekend. I wish we all lived closer to each other.


Happy Monday to you.


  1. I suggest that you get pregnant. I hear it has a foot-widening effect. (This hasn't happened to me, but there are still 23 weeks to go.)

  2. I have honestly thought of that. Hee!

  3. My clogs are my fanciest shoes--it's not what you wear, it's how you wear it. (Uhh, right?)

  4. Microphones ROCK. I have one in my car. And I'm 37.

  5. I have narrow feet as well. You may want to try specific brands that run narrow--Ecco is a good one. I've always had good luck with them!
