What I’m Wearing
I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts around how life has changed for a blogger since becoming a mom. There are typical things like how date night usually ends at 10pm or something silly. But for me? One of the biggest things as a mom is that I don’t wear heels. I didn’t wear heels very much mostly because I’m already tall so wearing them only made me feel like a giant. But I still owned them and wore them on occasion. But now? Now that I have to lug an arsenal of bags AND a 25 lb baby in a car seat, the idea of balancing it all on heels just seems too daunting.
But another reason I’m not big into heels anymore is that I’ve somehow become much clumsier. Maybe it is the hauling of so much stuff, but I seem to bang up every pair of shoes I own.
And have I mentioned (repeatedly) how cheap I am these days? But I can’t continue to wear these shoes anymore. Having this type of scuff just knocks your entire outfit down a few pegs and makes you look sloppy. YARG!
Any tricks on masking this terrible scuff on a cheap pair of fake leather Target heels so that I can at least get away with wearing these shoes a few more times?
What I’m Watching
This won’t be a laundry list of shows that I’m loving (aside from the new shows I mentioned last week). Instead this is just a quick blurb about how I’m excited for the return of The Walking Dead. I’ve never been a HUGE zombie movie fan (although there are a few zombie flicks I’ve enjoyed, mostly of the comedic variety like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland) but this show is great.
And maybe a part of the reason I like the show is because I like seeing an actor from a movie I love in something else. Notice a theme of why I watch certain shows? If an actor in a new show is from a previous show/movie that I really like, I will watch their new show.
- Six Feet Under –> Dexter, Parenthood, Subugatory
- The Wire –> Fringe (although I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I really am watching the show because I love Joshua Jackson. Pacey for life!), and generally any time I recognize any actor from The Wire and squeal. Can I tell you how stoked I am that Omar Little is on this season’s Community? I nearly pooped myself with excitement.
Sorry for the 2 unrelated topics smooshed into one post. I couldn’t decide what to write about and both are pretty uninspired.
So how can I fix my shoe? Do you watch The Walking Dead?
