I was talking to my stay-at-home mom friend, Melissa. We were talking about shoes, black boots specifically. Alot of the girls around here are wearing the cutest black boots....with jeans, short skirts, whatever. I was telling her how I've seen them at the stores and like them but just don't know that they're "me."
I told her I liked the look Kate has when she wears her black boots with her jeans and how one day at church 2 or 3 other girls (well, ladies really....young moms & young marrieds) had on knee length skirts with patterned black hose and high black boots. I thought it looked so nice and had talked to Chris saying things like, "Who sets these trends? How do they know this is the new look?" (Like he's really going to know the answer to these questions!)
Melissa laughed and said, "Jacinda! These girls work! They see other people walking around. We watch Higglytown Heroes and they don't wear go-go boots!"
I laughed really hard. Ah, the life of a stay-at-home mom!
On another note: I ended up taking Katie to MDO this morning where she did fine. I went up to the school and made the copies & distributed them to the teachers' boxes. The secretary was very helpful and I was done in about 1/2 an hour, so I ended up running an errand and having some "me" time. I was contemplating on how easy a time I'd had with making the copies and then I remembered that I had prayed about this whole thing. So, why was I surprised that it went well?!? :-)
