Dilemma solved?

Yesterday I posted a question about wearing brown shoes with navy blue pants.
In counting up the comments, the "yes, it's OK" vote and the "absolutely NO" vote were neck in neck. The "I don't know/care/have a clue/just wear slippers all the time" vote was much higher than the other choices.

So I have finally come to the conclusion of what I must do to solve this dilemma myself.

Buy new shoes.

Yes, I think the only way to solve this is to buy a pair of shoes specifically to match these pants. Of course, if I buy new shoes, then I'll probably need to get a new purse to match. I need a new purse anyway, so this shouldn't really be that big of a deal.

However, if I have a new purse and shoes, then I should probably get a nice haircut, and since I'll already be at the hairdresser, I should just go ahead and get some highlights too.

But then, with my new shoes, purse and fancy hairdo, I should probably get a manicure.

If I get a mani, then I MUST get a pedi, because the toes need to match the fingers.

Now here's a new dilemma, my new shoes won't show off my dressed up toes, so now I'll need to buy some new sandals so I can see them. Seriously, what's the point of having a pedicure if you can't see your feet?

Unfortunately, it's still too cold here to wear sandals.

I'll need to go someplace warmer.

Hawaii? Bahamas? Caribbean?

If I'm going one of those places, I'll need to get a new swimming suit and sunglasses too.
Oh, and I'll want to take my husband with me, so now I'll need to find someone to stay with the kids.

Since the kids won't be coming with us, I'll end up buying a bunch of souvenirs for them and for me too..............................





I've suddenly decided that I really can't afford to have my shoes match my pants.

Wait, is this the only pair of shoes you own? My heart hurts a little bit.

I literally own 80 pairs. I need a good therapist. Oh, good thing I know one.

Haha!! That's the truth. But could you take me instead of your husband? And Kristina--enjoy it while you can. Once you have kids it's all about comfort and cheap. Sad but true.

This is the voice of reason. Brown shoes and navy pants work just fine. End reasoning transmission.

So funny! But so true! It's a downward spiral.

If you give a mouse a cookie...

(Please tell me you know this book or you are right now very confused by my comment)

Oh and we had our blue and gold last night also and at least you had food. Most of ours didn't show up, the people that were assigned the food came but without the food that we bought and delivered to their homes. NICE!!

I guess you just shouldn't give a mouse that cookie. . . .ok, I just read all the comments and see that the "mouse cookie" comment has already been used at least twice and thought of more than that. In my defense, my nickname is Mouse; clearly, this was meant to be MY comment.
