Purple

This morning's smoothie. Blackberry-banana-peach smoothie with cottage cheese.

Carter's eye after being kicked with soccer cleats during a pregame soccer warm-up. (He was helping Jack's team warm-up and was the goalie.)


Shoes? I thought they would be more red than they are. Oh well. I've never owned purple shoes before.

These are this year's birthday shoes. A little tradition I started a few years ago when I saved up birthday money and bought shoes at a price I would never normally pay. Last year I bought the boots. These fun shoes are from two years ago. Hmmm ... I can't find any record of what I bought in 2007. I'll need to research this.

(The day that I bought those faux-red-mostly-purple shoes they had a sale, so the shoes were $20 off. That's my kind of deal.)

Oh, and my hair was almost purple-pink last week. I decided to color it and in the lighting it appeared to have a purplish tint. Of course I freaked out, but it was just my imagination. Whew!

i almost ordered those same keens but in white. they are on sale on sierra trading post but i decided on some ecco shoes instead because they are really light weight and comfy. i needed something to wear walking around hong kong. how do you like those keen mary janes? are they comfy? some reviews said they rubbed their heel and top of foot. maybe i should still get the white ones...

I still am amazed that you found a pair of Merrell's at Marshall's.

The shoes are gorgeous -- even if they're purple! Perfect for stripey socks!

Cottage cheese, eh? What a good, high-protein thing to put in a smoothie.

I think those shoes will look perfect with your new purple scarf! ;)

It's in the mail and should be there in 2-3 days. Let me know when you get it. And thanks again!
