i think i created a monster

i took kyra to the mall tonight with her birthday money. my goals for the night were to have a great "girl" time, and to help her begin to find her own style, while keeping things modest and cute. and oh my gosh did we have great success!! she had $50 from her gramma, and spent $45 while saving $115! (you go, jc penny!) but the most fun for both of us were her first pair of heels. she lit up like a christmas tree, people! take a peek...OH. MY. GOSH. not to mention they were regular $50 and she got them for $14!! and then she wore them, blushing the whole time with glee, as we went to a couple more stores and finally kroger, clomping away, trying to learn how to manage her gait in them. it was glorious!! and, she loves them. who wouldn't?? best $14 she may ever spend. :)

happy birthday, baby!

I remember when DSW came to the Portland area and I discovered shoes could be brand new AND discounted. I was, needless to say, devastated when I learned that the nearest DSW to Wilmore is in Cincinnati. I bought a pair of shoes over break when I learned there was a DSW in the shopping center where we stopped to get internet access. I'm very pleased with my shoes. You're daughter did well. Those are cute.

I see she has her mother's taste for shoes =) Do those shoes come in big girl sizes? Sounds like you guys had a blast (I'll admit it made me teary even though I don't know you all that well...but the past 2 episodes of the Brady Bunch have made me tear up too-yes, I'm watching the Brady Bunch). Happy Birthday Kyra!!
