A little Weed and a little Louboutin: Thoughts to Distract Me from My Growing Waistline

We frequently use our library for DVDs, especially shows on DVD. For the most part, this works out really well. I put a season on hold and get an email when it comes in. Unfortunately, there are times, when sh** hits the fan with this system. This week, as I mentioned, we are not longing for any TV. We are glued to the Olympics. (Did I mention that I want to be Lindsey Vonn? Or maybe Hannah Kearney). So of course it only seems right that both Mad Men Season 1 and Weeds Season 5 come in on the exact same day. I have been waiting for Mad Men for a good 6 months. GRRR.

I picked up Weeds first - we finished 3 episodes last night. This is the season where Nancy Botwin (aka Mary Louise Parker) is pregnant. We keep wondering if Nancy will still be hot with a baby belly?

While flipping between Weeds and the Olympics, I was reading a magazine and lo and behold I found these shoes, which are sort of like the Louboutins I posted but MUCH cheaper.


Ann Taylor

Ok, now that I look at them up close, they're not that similar. I still would want the Louboutins. But then I think of myself sitting here with unbuttoned pants and think, in a few months I will not be able to cram my swollen foot into that shoe, much less walk in it. Practically wins out again. My mother would be proud.

The Louboutin's are like Art for your Feet. The Ann Taylor's are a nice try.... but just not art.

Just looking at the Louboutin's makes me feel prettier.
