This morning, I took Brian, Ali, and Ali’s friend, Natalie, to The Mall in Columbia. I can find all of my favorite stores at Towson Town Center (which is about 10 minutes away from my house), but we made the 40-minute drive to Columbia in hopes of finding some fall clothing for my brother. He has a hard time finding pants that fit him, but he always seems to have luck with 77 Kids, a branch of American Eagle.
While at the mall, I was on a mission to buy a new pair of running shoes. Large holes began forming in them last week and they were not helping me out on the treadmill. Luckily, Finish Line had the exact pair that I wanted so I didn’t hesitate when purchasing a new pair of Asics!
I can’t go shopping without stopping in J.Crew to at least check out the selection.
However, I went in this time to look at a pair of shoes that I have been eyeing for a few weeks. I’ve found many similar pairs, but I can’t quite decide on the exact style that I want. They are all variations of a wedge bootie—a perfect shoe for the fall.
Price wise, they differ about $100 each. My wallet says go for the Dolce Vita booties, but I love the classic look of the Marc Jacobs pair.
My weekend is busy, busy, busy! I haven’t had a day off since last Friday, and I’m currently in a fourteen-day streak of working nonstop. Because I don’t have a typical schedule, some days I only nanny for three hours, but other times I work extremely long hours. This weekend, I’m taking over the role of a parent and am staying with the kids for three days. We’ll be going to doctor’s appointments, completing school projects, attending sports practices, and most likely making a trip to Earth Treks. At least I don’t have to rock climb. I absolutely love these kids, so while it will be a challenge, it will also be a laidback and fun weekend.
On another note, I’ve been meaning to mention that I am still compiling the questions for my question and answer post. If you’d like to ask me a question, simply leave a comment or you can ask me anonymously on Formspring. Also, if any other bloggers would like to be featured in my blog love post, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you a fan of wedge booties? Which pair would you buy?
What is your work schedule like? Do you work a 9-5 job, or do you have unusual hours?
