Omigod Shoes!

Do you ever see something that almost makes you squeal with delight? It doesn't happen often, but this morning one of my e-mails featured these:

Are they not adorable and gorgeous? They are Chie Mihara's and are available through piperlime. I would have nothing to wear with navy blue shoes, but I just love them. Since I know I wouldn't wear them, I won't buy them. Also, they cost $400. So they won't even go on my wishlist, but they're just so lovely! Maybe Target will make a similar shoe for $19.99. Of course, if they do, it will be massively uncomfortable where as I imagine these pretty pumps are quite comfy. They should be for $400, right?

Le sigh. Why must the pretty things always be so expensive?

Edit - I was at Target the other day and saw these:
They are $22.99 by Xhilaration, and not quite the same shoe, but pretty similar, no? Also, the name of these shoes, Sydney. I don't like the heel as much, but if they go on clearance I'll probably pick up a pair. I mean they have my name attached to them...

Edit #2: They are on sale right now for $19.99, so I bought them. Not in blue, but in brown because I think I'll get more wear out of them.

"Learn to sleep in a defensive position." - Brian

Friday morning Brian, Erik, and I were hanging out in bed and being silly together. Erik likes to climb all over both of us and we often get kicked and punched playfully in these encounters. Brian was mentioning to me how I should learn how to sleep in a defensive way, with my arm blocking my face, to protect myself for the mornings when Erik wakes up before us and decides to attack. Well, shortly after this conversation, Erik gave me the worst bloody nose I've ever had. He jammed his tiny finger way up my nose and I must have lost a pint of blood. It was very unpleasant and I was getting pretty dizzy and light-headed after a bit. It eventually stopped of course, but I will be more vigilant in my anti-Erik defense training.
