ok, so maybe I can't do that cool legs flying in the air thing like in first picture... and I'm pretty sure I can't dance like her at all. yet. but still, it was really great. See? I'm smiling. that's a good sign. And I have to thank each and every young man who risked their lives dancing with me, and tolerated my random blabber... I was nervous and distracted by the disco ball and twinkle lights, and all the pretty dancing couples. ok, so maybe I have officially ruined any chance of ever dancing with someone else again... but it was worth it. and apparently I looked decent doing it?? yeah, I have REALLY nice friends.
( Our pretty tree.... we will miss it when it leaves us)
Have a FABULOUS day!!

*that picture is the closest picture I could find to the real thing, since I don't have one myself, just visualize that cookie with ribbons of melted peppermint throughout.*

But it was a splendid time! I went with a dear friend of mine,
I also spent a majority of the time people-watching.
*photo from the web, but this is the shoppe I went to, I don't own a working camera at the moment =[*
Here is my list of things that make me incandescently happy!
- Running through the grass barefoot
- A barn full of well fed happy horses
- Vintage. Anything Vintage
- Twirling in a floaty skirt
- Hugs that last a while
- Hats of any size or shape
- Rosey red cheeks and noses during chilly weather
- When the sun shines through my window and wakes me up warmly
- inky ink pens
- yogurt shoppes

yes, I personally own a pair, and LOVE them.
I, however, cannot take full credit for discovering these shoes.
my dear friend Whitney did. I saw her wearing a pair and just couldn't get over how cute, and comfy they looked! plus you can practically wear them with anything.really.I saw her shoes, she told me the story behind them, and I was hooked. This is usually how people find out about them, the shoes are eye catching =]
"TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about."
You get a totally cool and groovy pair of shoes.
A kid who really needs them gets a pair too!All for the price of just one pair =]oh I love being inspired.Now, they aren't super cheap. But I really truly believe it is worth it.You could buy a pair as a gift to someone, and at the same time be giving a pair to someone who desperately needs shoes. No extra money, no scams, just honest giving =]
P.S. I don't know about you, but I would love to have those wrap boots. they come in multiple colors, too cute! =]
Have a great day!!

......I secretly wish I could wear fancy dresses all the time
.......I have an entire day scheduled and I toss it all away just so I can stay curled up in my bed
............I procrastinate on my math homework
.....I could eat cupcakes and muffins 3 times a day
.................I dance around in the kitchen before anyone else is up
........I listen to oldies and try to sing like this particular fellow (lead singer)
...I think taking a shower seems like a lot of work and don't want to ( dont freak.. I give in to it)
........I just want to run away and live like one of Robin Hood's men in Sherwood.
....I forget to pray and Praise Him
.........I get a little obsessed with blogging =]
