Went on a bit of a (husband-sanctioned, even encouraged) shoe-buying binge last week, all beautiful but all guaranteed to make my feet hurt by the end of the night. But for candy apple RED Ralph Lauren patent platform peep-toe Mary Janes, the pain will be SO worth it. I also elected to join the 21st century and get a new phone that will allow me to send text messages. I just sent my first ever text last week, so I’m obviously screaming right into the technological future, eh?
(And while I’m on the subject, I just cannot make myself write in that pidgin texting language, forsaking all grammar and spelling rules. The word nerd in me just won’t let it happen, so I’ll continue to laboriously send my correctly written messages. I won’t be winning any speed-texting contests anytime soon.)
Pair #2 of hawt RED shoes scored last week. Not even as crippling as they may appear on first glance. More about where I wore these later.
My beloved toaster oven unexpectedly gave up the ghost, providing me an opportunity to replace it with something much prettier (incidentally, did you know Target’s website has a page just for RED appliances? How convenient!)
Even though it perfectly matched Ruby and Bea (so named because she’s an Osterizer Beehive blender), the toaster oven had to be returned because its poor design meant it took up a ridiculous amount of counter space. Boo. I suppose it's just as well, as that toaster oven had rotten reviews on the Target website anyway.
