If you give OHmommy rain boots.... PDF Print E-mail

It rained all day today and I could not have been more excited to wear my new Hunter rain boots.

However, I threw them over my jeans and realized that my outfit would not work. My jeans were simply way too bulky and boot cut. I needed skinny jeans. Skinny jeans became popular when I was pregnant with Fifi and I have had my eyes on them ever since.

I didn't want to invest in an expensive pair because skinny jeans are essentially jean leggings and my post pregnancy body is just not ready to go there yet. Yes... 15 months is considered post pregnancy in my world.

I dropped off the kiddos at preschool and ran to the store with Fifi. Marshalls... brand names for less "Shop On." Perfect for me. I was ready to get my shopping on for the perfect pair of jeans for my boots.

As we dodged the rain in my ballet flats, I noticed a huge sign in the window that read "SHOE MEGASHOP." We walked through the doors and I knew that I was in big trouble. They totally re-vamped their shoe department. They placed all 5,000 square feet of DESIGNER SHOES directly in front of the store by the entrance.

I was in trouble.

I could end the story right now and tell you that I did not even make it to the jean department and walked out with new sassy shoes instead.

That is precisely what happened.

I spent over an hour drooling over stilettos, wedges, and cute sandals. Fifi lead a path of destruction and opened every box in sight. In the newly organized shoe section, each shoe was neatly displayed on top and the available sizes were boxed underneath. It made shopping for shoes so much easier and Fifi had a blast admiring pumps and placing them in and out of their respectful boxes.

We were in shoe heaven!


"This?" She pulled out shoe after shoe and slipped them onto her chubby feet.

I have been looking out for the perfect summer sandal for days at the park, pool, and playground. I can not do flip flops anymore for I believe my legs look too manly, heavy, and muscular. I wanted something simple and with a little bit of a heel to slim down my legs.

I found what I wanted in shoe heaven for just under 30 dollars.

Shhhh... whisper. I am afraid my Hunters will be jealous. See the newest addition to my shoe family.

If you give OHmommy rain boots, she will need jeans to match. When OHmommy shops for jeans, she gets distracted by shoes. When OHmommy buys the shoes, she finds a cute top to match. When she puts together the cutest summer outfit, it rains. And when it rains OHmommy will put on her rain boots and realize she needs skinny jeans to match.

Mr. OHmommy is hoping is doesn't rain for a while.
