the power of shoes

My mom is the greeting card queen; she's always on the lookout for funny, appropriate greeting cards. As a result of her greeting card obsession, every once in a while, I will get one in the mail. Now, I am not a greeting card person. I mean, I like them and all but they're just not something I'm super into.

A while ago though she sent me one that really just put life in perspective for me.

This picture is on the front along with these words: Once she was a lowly housemaid dressed in rags. Now she's got a fairy godmother, she's filthy rich, and she lives in a palace with her dreamboat husband.

(You may or may not know that I'm a Disney Princess fanatic. I even wanted to name Melody after Sleeping Beauty. Alex nixed that idea).

On the inside it says this (which is basically my person motto): It's further proof, my friend, that the right shoes CAN change your life!

True fact, my friends, true fact.

Haha...I'm not much of a shoe girl, but one of my coworkers would LOVE that. My sister too...and some of my cousins- seems I'm outnumbered! ;)

SUPER cute! I'm not a big shoe person....probably because my feet are huge! But I love some flip flops!
