I know YOU know what I mean
when I tell you that I have been so swamped that I really truly have not had a minute to digest the fact…
THE extremely exciting fact that we are leaving for California today!!!!
My bags are packed…I am kind of ready to go…I am a tad sad to leave my Charlie dog and my little Miss Muffin puppy but they are going to be in good hands with our neighbor house sitting.
I put a note of Facebook the other day…soliciting ideas for California sight-seeing and the kids mapped out a route…and finally I am beginning to feel like it is happening!!!
We will start in Los Angeles and then slowly make our way up the state…ending the trip (and celebrating my Birthday!) in San Francisco! I plan to give you a run down of our days adventures…complete with photos!
…..as I was packing..and RE packing and then doing the “Don’t take so much packing!” and “then just take it all anyway knowing you will wear 1/2 of what I take” packing…it struck me how there was NO debating which shoes would be going…yes I have some cute dressy slides and such but I guarantee that I will LIVE in these…
AND THESE FIT FLOPS
This is the story of how I came to be a ‘FIT FLOPS” BELIEVER.
A few years ago, I was in NYC with the family. It was also the week of my Birthday and one of my gifts to myself was a new pair of shoes…I wore the shoes all day one day and they cut my feet up so bad, that I literally threw them in a trash can (and watched from a café restaurant as someone fished them out). My feet were a mess and the next day, I walked ….well limped REALLY, into shoe store on Madison Avenue and saw these funny looking things and tried them on
…OMG I felt like my feet had died and gone to FEET Heaven.
I wore them right out of the store
………and for the remainder of the summer! No blisters, No fatigue…just comfy walking and I never looked back.
I do not work for Fit Flops but I might buy stock in them! They are so great..I have packed two pair for LA. When it comes to my feet, and walking around all day seeing sights..I honestly am more concerned with comfort that looks…but these have actually grown on me…I just checked the website and they have a bunch on sale!!!
If you have some big walking to do…check them out!
Please send me any California suggestions you might have we will be there 10 whole days!!!
