I bought these moccasin type slippers from Old Navy on Black Friday last year. Id barely had a chance to wear them when the stitching started to come undone. Rather than fix them immediately or take them back, I hung on to them. Not long after, I found another similar pair at Target and proceeded to wear them completely out. Id wear them outside, to the store, around the yard, etc. They started to get a bit gross. So, I decided (almost a year later) that it was time to fix the original pair. I picked up some red embroidery thread because I thought I would like the contrast with the brown. Bingo! It was perfect! But in my heart, something felt wrong. (hahaha! heart! felt! I'm so funny!) So I added the giant embellishment! I asked Isaak's opinion and knew that Id hit the nail on the head when he would only sort of mutter that it looked okay. hee hee! I hand stitched those sucker on with mustard colored embroidery thread. They are so precious :)
And here's a cute picture of Murderface lurking after the San Pelli bottle cap (which can be seen in the foreground, next to the finger).

So here's something about myself that I find a bit...odd. I always have these grocery lists floating around all over the place. They reside in my purse and in my jacket pockets. I use them for bookmarks when I find them on my nightstand. Im sure Im not the only one who has these little time capsules of the menu dujour. As I age, Ive noticed that Ive adopted some strange...eccentricities. Among them is the practice of NOT disposing of my grocery lists. For some reason, I feel like my grocery list is a super personal glimpse into my soul! Heaven forbid I should drop a grocery list in the parking lot at the market. STRANGERS could see what Im making for dinner!! I hang onto them and only throw them away at my home. Its my turn this month to host the movie viewing/dinner/get together thingy, so in honor of Halloween, I chose the movie 'Twilight'. Here's my grocery list that accompanies getting ready for Twilight dinner theater. Muwahahaha!
