Funny story here.
I went away for a few days in June to visit some family in Washington. While I was there, my aunt took me shopping and we stopped in at Nordstroms. My uncle works for them and Nordstrom was having it's Half-yearly anniversary sale, so we looked for some shoes. I found these cute snake skin sandals, but my usual size wasn't fitting me, so my aunt made me try a bigger size. Well it took me two bigger sizes to finally have them fit well. It looks like my feet have grown and I didn't even know it. This must be why my feet have been hurting in shoes for the last few years. Sheesh!! I can't believe I didn't even think to try and see if my feet were a different size. I thought when you become an adult your feet stop growing, turns out, that's not the case. So, here's the extra funny part... I use to wear a size 9, turns out I should be wearing a size 11. Oh my heck!! Really, my feet are that big!! Goodness, gracious. Guess the hubs was right all those years ago on our first date, I DO have big feet.
So, because of this new found discovery I went and bought me some new flip flops at Old Navy. I scored big time, because the day I went everything in the store was 30% off. My flip flops only cost me $1.75 a pair, so I got 3 new pairs. They were kind of plain, so I added some flair to them...
My giraffe ones-Kaleigh is so jealous, she wants me to make a pair for her now too. That girl and her love for the giraffes.
And of course, I had to make a pair for my love of baking. Cute little cupcake ribbon on my charcoal pair of flip flops. All I did with the ribbons is sewed straight down the middle and pulled on the thread to "ruffle" the ribbon. I put a cute glass jewel in the middle and VOILA... a one-of-a-kind pair of flip flops. I think I may have found a new way to de-stress myself, and this one is fat-free. However, I'm sure to still bake, just probably not as much.
