whistle while you work(out)

This morning I went to the gym...
and before you high-five me and say something like "good for you!!" (because thats what we women do, we congratulate each other on working out) I should probably say that I haven't been to the gym in a really long time AND I ate 3 cookies today. So..thats that.
I have a love/hate relationship with the gym..mostly hate, but I DO always feel better after I have gone and I'm not constantly thinking about it the rest of the day.
I wish I was one of those people that actually enjoyed it.
I enjoy exercising when its hidden and I don't realize I'm doing it. Like dancing.
Dancing is SUCH a workout and I love dancing. I should dance.
ANYWAY, after my hour was up I started for the EXIT. Walking infront of me was an old man who just finished his workout as well. As soon as he opened the door and stepped out of the gym he started whistling.
I smiled...I felt like whistling too.
I got 10 bucks that says he wasn't whistling on the way into the gym.

Call me crazy...

but I L.O.V.E. the new shoes I bought today, like a lot, like I am wearing them as I write this post.
However, it's the kind of purchase you have to justify before you even pull it out of the bag. Not because you have spent a lot of money, but because the purchase is..lets just say...different.?
I am a thrift store shopper so there has been several "just listen to what I want to do with it" kind of purchases.
With that being said..just hear me out.
I have wanted gold shoes for awhile now. yes, gold. My brother got my sister-in-law a pair of gold glittered TOMS and I want them so bad, but they are like 50 bucks and I can't justify THAT right now.

They are cute though and I will own a pair of TOMS one day, but today is not that day. Today I found gold shoes, the ones I have been looking for. Most of you will not have any clue what I was thinking. Some of you will say what my mom said when I showed her my new shoes "hmmmmmm....ok."

Picture this... Grandma Shoes+Michael Jackson Shoes= MY NEW SHOES!!! :)

No? Don't see it? Don't care. The best part??

I bought them for 5 BUCKS!!

I know some of you may be thinking it was 5 dollars too much and that they should have paid me 5 to take them off their hands, but I love them.

I may stand alone on this purchase and that is ok because at least I stand alone in some ghetto fab, moon-walking, why-walk-when-you-can-dance kind of shoes.

Keeping Perspective

If you are apart of the blogging world you probably know who Stephanie Nielson is.
I read her blog every now and then and I love it. She is a quick reminder of how life can change in an instant. I watched this video and cried. Sometimes in a world filled with chaos its easy to forget your purpose. Sometimes we need to stop, take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

If I become even half as beautiful of a person as her then I will be happy.
