WOO! Good News! (and porn)

I didn’t mention this on the blog (there are actually a lot of aspects of my life that I don’t talk about here – I know, you’re shocked that it’s not all gardens, running & shoes), but although I did tell you that I’d gotten into grad school, I didn’t mention that I thought I was going to have to drop out before it had even begun. I hadn’t gotten my financial aid notice, and classes start Monday. When I registered for classes, I put them all on my credit card. Today was the last day to drop classes & get all my money back. Today, I got my financial aid award information – and I’m covered. So, starting on Monday, I am officially a grad student.  This weekend we are not camping, because I don’t like to camp in the rain.

Instead, we will finish our patio, do some hiking & running, and light some fires (in our firepit, of course).

Also – PORN!!  As a result of the voting a few weeks ago, I got some shoes. Although not the ones that everyone voted for, because y’all voted for the wrong ones.

Instead, I got shoes #1. And I love them!

I had originally posted the brown ones (which have turquoise colored stones), but ended up buying the black. Although I may go ahead & get the brown ones, too.  They’re so awesome.

The second pair was purchased because my cute comfy flats that I like to wear when I’ll be standing for many hours died a horrible death (I’ve had three shoe-nerals in the last month…so sad).

So – I got these:

Aren’t they so cute? And they were on clearance. (If you click through the link, they are only in kids’ sizes, but I have seen bonafide adults wearing them, so they must come in adult sizes somewhere. And yes, mine are kids’ shoes. I’m wee.)

I will work on more shoe porn for next week. Next week is going to be shoe porn for men by special request.

  1. i feel fat an lazy, how did you over come that in the 3 months you were off??

    • I did as much yoga as possible, and basically felt fat & lazy the whole time. I did some walking, and more elliptical than I can usually stand. Basically, it sucked – but I’m healed now and really have little to no pain now, so I know that it was for the best. I’m so sorry you have to take this time off. Do you read http://running-towards-myself.blogspot.com/? She is dealing with a lot of time off right now, too…..

  2. YAY those were the shoes I voted for…not EVERYONE voted for the wrong ones.

    Excited for you about grad school.

  3. Congratulations again!

    Sweet, male shoe porn! Hmm, that doesn’t sound quite right.

  4. Maybe I started reading after your grad school announcement, or maybe I’m just forgetful (more likely), but what are you going to grad school for? Congrats! It should be exciting!!
