A Fun Weekend

Friday night was my mom's reception. Since the book came out on Tuesday they waited until the weekend to have it. I hadn't planned on staying the whole time but I ended up being there for almost 4 hours. It was fun and I got to wear a new shirt that I had recently bought. 
Mom & I
She got a lot of press last week for the book release and I really loved this photo that was from a newspaper. It also featured another person that's a character in the book. 

Remember the glitter shoe incident from a few weekends ago? Well I apparently didn't learn my lesson because the shoes I wore that night killed my feet. I woke up with them aching! Oh well, for that night they made me 5'8'' and that's alright with me! 

On Saturday, I was determined to get my errands done. Since I'm so busy with work during the week, my days off usually involve me trying to get everything I need done within one day. So I hit up the grocery store, mowed the lawn (it finally stopped raining) and did a little bit of shopping. That's when I found these new beauties...
Their red suede and brown leather. They had been marked down a lot and I just couldn't pass them up. No clue when I'll wear them but they are really nice. My poor feet were probably screaming Noooo because the heel on them is at least 3 1/2 inches. 

And for the record, I did get up early Friday morning to watch the Royal Wedding. I thought William looked very handsome but am I the only one who thinks Harry is looking pretty good?

Love those shoes but I'd probably break something trying to walk in them lol.

Also, you're not alone. I've always thought he was the better looking of the two.

Katie said...

Congrats to your mamma thats awesome!
Those shoes look really stiff and like they'd hurt!!
I used to buy all crazy kinds of heels when I was 17-20 y/o. Ones that I could of sworn were made to rip the skin right off your feet, make every blister possible, and make you walk without bending your knees (like a toy solider) aha.
Now I only buy shoes with really good ratings online about comfort, etc. Their usually pricey but heyy beats killing your feet!
But those red ones look awesome!! Post a pic one day wearing them!

Prince Harry is the cuter of the two for sure!!
Thanks for commenting on my blog :)

Ashley said...

Harry is beautiful!!

Crystal said...

Congrats to your mom!

I used to have a big crush on William but somewhere around the age of 20 he just started spiraling downhill, fast. I don't think it's the hair loss ... he just looks more and more like his father! Harry is so cute and looks like he'd be so much fun!

Those red shoes are fabulous. I totally want them for myself! You should get pads for your heels. You can get heel pads, since that's where most of the pressure goes when you're wearing heels. I bet that will help a lot.
