Happy days are here again! I am back to wearing sandals so I stopped in TJ Maxx to try on a few and had some fun. The first pair were so cute. What's not to like about these? They are pink and sparkly and fun. They also hurt. See that pink round thing in the middle, imagine that digging into your foot each time you took a step. OUCH! But they were pretty to look at.

These were much more comfortable but the little flower petals kind of tickled the tops of your feet.

And I just tried these on for the bling bling factor. They were major bling and also major killers to walk in. I took three steps in these and said no way. I was just killing some time before an appointment but it was fun to try them on. Yes, my toes are freshly painted and my feet are happy to be in sandals again! What more could a girl want? LOL Oh and don't worry sweetie, I resisted the pretty sandals calling "Buy me Joan, I am so pretty on your feet." :-)

Yeah! It's happy feet time. I wore my flip flops already this week. However, I need to go get a pedicure so my happy feet are pretty. I saw some of those same shoes today at TJ.

It will be long till we can wear sandals here in Norway.. It is could outside yet. It is early spring, but I'm not sure it can be more snow yet.
The sandals you show are so cute, all of them, but if I should make a choise, I would have taken the third pair, I think.
Have a nice day!

You could do shoe commercials! Great feet!
Loved the travel post. I DO know about that church and the lepers! So fun to go and visit that island with you, and I WOULD ride those burrows on the highest sea cliffs. I think. ha.
Also loved those food ideas. I need to cut back on sugars, because they are really taking me out right now!
It looks like you had a great time with your grand-daughter. You sure have cute grandbabies! I'm sure you know that too. hee hee!

OK. Thanks for your visits and enjoy your day. I'll try not to leave so many spaces between my visits. Mom just had her knee replaced and I'm trying to get over there as often as I can ... so not as much time at home.

p.s. My mom has these orange cups at her house. It made me laugh when you said your cup reminded you of your mom, cuz those orange cups always make me think of my mom (even though they are right there with her at her house ... but if she were gone and the cups remained, I know they would make me think of her too.)

Hi, Joan! Thanks for stopping by, so nice to hear from you. I know about life getting in the way, I'm so far behind on visiting everyone lately.

Now those shoes are all so cute! I know what you mean though, I've got to have some comfort these days & not just pretty. You do have cute feet & nicely painted toes. I did a manicure on mine & messed up the big toes by wearing my tennis shoes, so have to do them over again!

Happy weekend!

Darn, they're all so cute, but if they're not comfortable, they can't go home with me either.


freetofly said...

Those were some cute girlie sandals! I know what you mean though - I will pick comfort first, then beauty second! And economy over both of those desireable traits! :)

What fun! And your toes are lovely! Mine need a fresh coat right now!


P.S. We have so many similar likes (I saw reading, high school sweetheart, Nancy Drew, Barbara Delinsky, Paula Deen, and Karen Kingsbury!) And OF COURSE JESUS!

Great to meet you!
