the countdown is on...and i'm still shopping

it is now official. my last day at my current job is june 23rd. a wednesday. a wednesday that's less than 3 weeks away. which is SUPER FREAKING SCARY. and also really exciting...because its the break i've been longing for since last year, when i signed a one year extension to my contract to get me through my wedding.

now...i just have to figure out what's next. and wait for the company that seems to be peeing their pants over hiring the hubs to ACTUALLY FREAKING HIRE HIM. ugh....he does not do waiting well...he's like his wife in that respect =) so last week's wait turned into this week's wait...which turned into today's wait, and hopefully not next week's wait also.

and so of course, with impending unemployment....of COURSE i decided to do some online window shopping, after an email from payless about 20% off, plus buy one get one 50% off.
i think i might love these wedges. i'm totally a summer wedge girl...makes a jersey dress look a little dressier than flip flops, but they're so freaking comfy that it's LIKE wearing flip flops, but taller. plus, the gold is kinda cute running through there.

and these flats are just too fab to me. of COURSE they're christian siriano, which makes them even more awesome...cuz he is =)
i have a hard time finding flat sandals i like, because SO many are gladiator style, or have that really long piece in the middle between your big toe and the next toe....which are super cute on others. but i've got looooooong toes. like, people make fun of me when they notice how long they are. i can pick stuff up with them. so emphasizing the length of my size 10's and creepy long toes is NOT. COOL.
the best part is that both pair would be about $34 total.
let's just say a little good thought to the universe the hubs gets a call, and i find a job, so i don't have to give up my shopping habit...

It is so worth it if the prices are that good! Shoes are the hardest thing to resist, cause they almost always look good on!
