First and most importantly, Jane got her first pair of Chuck Taylors:
When I told her what these shoes were called, she reminded me that Chuck is what Peppermint Patty calls Charlie Brown. Of course.
Secondly, I got a new pair of rain boots, and they make me happy.
Come to think of it, they may be my first pair of rain boots ever. I had never imagined anything other than wellie-style boots (which don’t work well for people that don’t wear skinny jeans) until a blog I read linked to these. And then Anna started rocking these boots, which made me think that high-heeled rain boots weren’t such a bad idea. AND THEN we recently experienced torrential downpours for like a week straight, so I decided it was time to get serious about investing in some rainy day footwear. And after a brief online search, I decided on these. They’re great, and they’re comfortable enough to wear to work all day.
Aren’t they marvelous??!!
