Not Forgotten

Today was a cold yucky rainy day and sometimes it tends to make you feel just yucky too. I woke up today and just kept thinking about a dear friend of mine. (I'm going to keep her name out of this just for her privacy and will just simply refer to her as K) She and I went to school together but we were not friends until recently. I wish we had become friends on different circumstances but I believe God has a reason for every thing and at that point in my life we had lost 2 babies and I was now pregnant with Adlie . I was asking God why did I have to have this pain what was he trying to teach me...He was trying to show that he had a plan for my pain, K was also pregnant and lost her sweet little one in October and when I read about it I cried it made me think of our other babies and how hard it was to talk to people who had never been in that situation. I simply did just what I wish someone had done for me just be there when they needed me listen, support, and above all love. It is coming up on the 6 month mark for them and our friendship has grown and I truly love K and her husband like we had been friends for years. I want her to know that I am truly honored to be her friend and that their sweet little one will not be forgotten. K if you do read this I am so glad we are friends and I love you and am always here for you when ever you may need me.

No really I do and I know being short I should really love heels ( I so don't) I love flats and living in Indiana I know I'm rather crazy but I LOVE me some flip-flops No they are not year round shoes (confession) I wear them all the time oh and while we are at it I own 2 pair of crocs (yes they are ugly but comfort is #1 in my book) So okay this post is again Recession Fashion so every thing is under $30!!!!
Okay, Okay ,Okay I know I said I don't do heels but I love these! How cute would these be with a white eyelet sun dress! So now the goods.... these are from Target! These are the Wendi platform slide sandal by Mossimo for $22.99!

Again yes these are rather high for me but they are a wedge so less dangerous then the heels in my book! and really a cute pair of espadrilles should be a must own! To make these even better they are eco-friendly! Zoe & Zac Tigerlily Espadrille $26.99 at Payless!(they come in brown shown and purple)

I'm not sure if I am going to jump on the Gladiator band wagon just ,but if I do these will be the ones I will have to have! Remember though when it comes to trends don't go over bored with paying to much. which is why I like these from Target $19.99!!(Mossimo Pauline gladiator)

These are the Fab strappy sandal from Forever 21 $7.50! I love these simple but so cute!
