I'm meeting personal goals that have been a very long time coming. LIFE IS GOOD, my dahlings!
I'm making new friends left and right; I'm in better shape physically than I have been in years, thanks to going Swing Dancing every week for over a month now.
|Poor babies. :(|
...so the Aris Allens have been ordered and should arrive any day!* They are very similar to the Bleyers, but the strap is a little wider, which I love!
|Soon, my pretties, you will be all mine! :)|
I'm wearing canvas sneakers in the interim. They are ok. Not great, but I can Lindy in them and not break something, so just for tonight it's not that bad.
*5/22/13 EDIT: They came this afternoon! The left one is a little snug in the toe, but I figured out (from experience) that the next half size up would be too big and rub blisters, and as the right foot fits perfectly, I conclude that the injury I sustained in college to my left foot (which resulted in two broken digits) is likely responsible for the difference. I'm going to take them to a shoe shop and have them stretched just a tiny bit. I'm like a size 5 ¾ instead of either a 5½ or a 6. :P
Should I have to go with the 6s, the company has an amazing return policy, so that won't be a problem to just swap out one for the other. I think these will fit the bill, though. I'm more than thrilled with them and Tuesday can't get here fast enough!!! :)
In the next couple of weeks, be sure to check out the Mailbox page, as there will be updates and links for photos. I'll be showing off a lot of the awesomeness that has been arriving via USPS.
Until later, my dear readers. Love to you all!
