Quest for the Perfect Kid-Chasing Mom Sneakers

06/13/2016

I’ve got these blue Adidas running shoes that I love. I bought them for jogging but with two little ones, I can’t seem to figure out when to go for an honest-to-goodness jog anymore. Also, I might die if I tried. But, I do a lot of running around just chasing the kids. These kicks are my go-to if we’re planning on a good amount of walking, especially while I’m pregnant…and especially after I broke my toe and I need good support. They’re getting pretty tired-looking and my birthday is coming up so I started searching for a replacement. Naturally, the journey began with inspiration from Pinterest…

I’m liking the black!

Meet the candidates (AKA my top choices):

We’re all still here.

Court on Friday was pretty uneventful. If you followed the comments on Friday’s post you probably noticed that we were expecting to have court and we thought there was a good chance that Buzz’s mom would get him back. I wasn’t planning to go because I was too busy to take another half day off of work. I was notified that we were all ill-informed at it was supposed to be this Friday. Then his mom went down there and got them to move it back to this past Friday again. She ended up going before the magistrate but he explained that she actually needs a trial, not a motion to appeal (if I understand correctly…what she explained to me…) and that is scheduled for July 1. So we continue to wait.

These shoes represent two things to me: years of hard work done by a good man (my man) and thriftiness to the max. I think our raised-in-the-depression grandparents would be proud. Or embarrassed. After serving well for at least a decade, into the trash bin they go.


Cute Crocs?

Is that possible? I saw this picture recently on one of the fashion blogs I follow and was surprised to read that these cute, simple flats are indeed Crocs:

I did a little investigation on Crocs.com and found some other cute options too:

And the best part? The Malindis are $29.99 and the Primas are only $19.99!

Loving the new shoes! (Tho I prob shoulda gotten an 8 rather than a 7.5.) Did I mention I got them half price?? Can’t beat that.

I’ve been taking advantage of the fall-like temperatures the past few days by doing what I did all spring: eating lunch in my car. It’s mid-70’s and breezy. Perfect for rolling down the windows and reading while I eat my salad and delicious peach. Sunshine and solitude. Ahhh…

I’m reading The Power of the Praying Wife. It’s one of those books I just keep coming back to time and time again. I love spending my lunch break talking to God!
