Sister Wedges

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for your support from yesterday’s post. It really means the world to me and I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter. One in which I will finally start living for me and I’m certain I will be happier. Life is too short not to be at my personal best, you know? I can’t wait to continue to blog about this journey.

Anywho, how was your day? Mine was very busy and tiring. I was exhausted because I didn’t get too much sleep last night. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night and vowed to myself that I wouldn’t check the clock. I just know that once I check the clock and realize I only have a few hours left of sleep, it stresses me out. It’s always best not to look!

You know what I love about my little sister, Valerie? Well, there are many things, but one thing in particular is her sense of style. She’s the one person in my life who I trust 100% when it comes to fashion. She encourages me to step out of my comfort zone and is always looking out for me. Whenever she asks what I want for my birthday, or whatever, I just tell her to pick out something she would buy herself because I’m positive I’ll love it.

So, anyways, yesterday afternoon she called me because she was at Marshall’s in Chicago and found some wedges that are, apparently, perfect for me. I didn’t answer and called her back last night. They were marked down a TON from like $200 to $20 and Val just OMG-HADTOBUYTHEM-FOR-ME. She described them as meant to be because they were in my size.

After she sent me the picture of what they kinda look like, I decided I love them. The coloring and fabric are a little different and she said they look better than the picture, which is always great. She’s going back tomorrow to snag them before anyone else does.

This is just reason #2,657 why I adore Valerie. <3

I have a busy, busy weekend planned. Todd is running the North Country Half Marathon on Saturday morning and we’re driving up tomorrow night. We’ll be there until Saturday and then we have a wedding for one of his friends on Sunday (which, I have no clue what I’m going to wear! Probably this blue dress that I love).

Anywho, I hope you have an awesome Friday!

It’s the freakin’ weekend… :-)

Those are SO cute. I’m so glad we’re the same size so I can steal them.
