What a Mess

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

It’s been a long day. My husband’s coming home late because he is at some sort of work dinner. I was just trying to finish the dishes before Dancing with the Stars. My son and I watch it together every week. Most 3 year olds are in bed – but mine asks about the show every day so I let him stay up to watch. I came into the family room ready to get on the couch and this is what I found. Cous cous everywhere… I have no idea at all where to even start cleaning it up. I’ve decided to pour myself a glass of wine and leave it for tomorrow…

Tory Burch Flip Flops

Monday, April 5th, 2010

When I travel I buy shoes. I just can’t help it.  It is my standard little treat for myself where ever I go.  The one souvenir I know I will love weeks, months and years after I have returned home.  Last week I was on a business trip to Florida and managed to splurge on 3 new pairs! I barely made it to the one local shoe boutique before it closed one evening and within minutes found myself trying on 11 pairs of shoes. With boxes everywhere and me completely flustered, trying to make a quick decision before the shop closed for the night – my husband called. I couldn’t believe it.  I told him I was standing in line for ice cream and that I would call him right back. I felt a tinge of guilt that I wanted every pair I had tried on. I left the shop with these adorable Tory Burch flip flops (pictured above in the sand at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club where I celebrated my purchase with a glass of champagne and a beautiful sunset) that were a size too big, but 50% off – so 100% guilt free.  I raced back the next night before closing to pick up 2 more pairs of fantastic flats. That time I left my phone in the car.

Sweet Peas & Stilettos was featured in the March/April issue of Gentry – the South Bay edition, page 23. Of course I am very excited that they love the website.  A huge thank you to Cassidy Flynn and the editors at Gentry for the great article.
