I did what I always said I wouldn't

How are you guys doing?
I've had a massive cold lately. Let me tell you, sore throats/coughing/sinus drainage AND mad heartburn/acid reflux are bad news. I think my throat is about as thin as a piece of saran wrap now.

Anyway! Do you guys remember when I posted this picture a few weeks ago?

My hilarious big sister sent it to me. Well, you guys. I think It's time for me to retract that statement and apologize to all those magical plastic shoe wearers.
I bought some, with the convincing and encouragement of my sweet husband.

HEY. Stop. Please don't roll your eyes at me. Croc wearers have feelings too.

Swelling in pregnancy is a serious problem my friends. It's really hot here. Plus, I walk several miles a day (I know, I had to wear a pedometer for one of my classes last week) in the heat. As a result, my feet look like marshmallows (which swell over my shoes) at the end of the day and feel like they got beat up by mini leprechauns using great force. They hurt. If feet aren't happy ain't nobody happy!

As fashionably as I normally am (not), I threw away all of the "looks" concerns and was only interested in comfort this shopping trip. [it was on labor day. How appropriate] Guys, these shoes are really comfortable. While no one has complimented my shoes thus far, no one has pointed, screamed, and ran away. Therefore, I'm counting this as a success.
Not SO bad right?

Technically, I didn't have my crocs at the time, but I count myself as defying the statistics for Crocs being 100% birth control. Anyone have the number to Ripleys?

K, those are not regular crocs though, those are cute!

Also, I may or may not have owned (and loved) a pair of hot pink bedazzled croc knock-offs at one point in my life. (Or two summers.)

haha I was SO CLOSE to buying some-- but with it being so close I am not going to! I just don't wear shoes most of the time! You got cute crocs though (gosh using "cute" and "crocs" in the same sentence-- who knew!) hopefully as the weather cools off your feet will stop swelling! Ugh I hate having fat feet-- Matt was laughing hte other day at me because he couldn't see my ankle bone and realized it actually was the part that was dimpling in instead of jutting out like a normal ankle, I have cankles!
