Q, Where is home? A, In cute shoes.

fireworks2010

Hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July! Husband and I had a 4 day weekend, so we went back to Louisiana for the holiday. Got to see our families and a few friends and eat a lot of really great food. It's strange though how quickly Houston has already started to feel like "home". I'm not sure how much I dig that honestly. I hate feeling like I abandoned Louisiana, especially my folks. I feel like I'm saying that all the time, but I feel guilty leaving them. I know, I know, it's just 4 hours away, but it still feels sad.

What makes me happy though? These!

I rarely shop for clothes/shoes (I prefer to create and craft), but I saw these at Target, and they were so cute and priced right($20!). Also, when did the prices go up at Old Navy? Walked in and saw the ugliest, most cheaply made skirt, for $26 dollars! Cheap looking sandals? $26! Cardgian? $26! If I spend $26 on a cardigan, it's got to last longer than 3 months, and from ON, it definitely won't. God, this makes me sound so cheap. Confession? I totally am.

Let's see, what else is going on...oh, my sister has edited the book I've written. I don't have the guts to read her suggestions yet, because I'm afraid she's going to tear me apart. I don't want to talk too much about it, jinxing it and all. But, I need to, because I need to send it off. I just keep reminding myself that J.K. Rowling was turned down 12 times when she wrote Harry Potter. Not that book is anywhere approaching Harry Potter status, though I wouldn't even know because I've never read any of that series. I know, I know.

So what's going on in your life? Anything you looking forward to? Sometimes the best thing for the soul is something amazing to look forward to.

I LOVE Old Navy! Mainly b/c I dont feel so bad buying so many clothes for Lo that she has no room in her closet she has to live out of hampers too! Outlets are the answer to EVERYTHING!! Love me some outlet malls! I wouldn't say I'm cheap, I'd say I have REALLY expensive, pre-oilfield crash, offshore bonus, tastes... On a post-oilfield, working on land budget! (although I do admit I carry a $300 Juicy diaper bag, and love ANYTHING Tiffany & CO!)

@Casey, I used to really love designer things, have a couple of Fendi bags and all that, but for some reason, I just snapped and started hating it all lol. Now if I pay more than 5 bucks for a t shirt I feel ripped off lol.
