Shoesday of a different kind

Now that I have the results of the last poll, I’m ready to buy my brown shoes. Those might be the last shoes I buy myself for quite awhile. It seems that I may need to switch my focus a bit. So, in no particular order – here are some of the shoes I’m thinking about buy in the next few months:

Umi Cassia Mary Jane


adidas Campus 2 - Disney Pluto Sneaker


PUMA Soleil Cat Nubuck


adidas Gazelle - pretty much the best shoe name ever, amiright?


Converse Chuck Taylor Crib Sneaker


(Thanks for the big reveal inspiration, friends!)

To answer the questions that I have gotten so far:

  1. Yes, I’m serious
  2. No, I am not a fucking liar
  3. April 2
  4. Yes, I can prove it, but don’t you think that’s a weird request?
  5. Yes, it was on purpose
  6. We don’t know yet, but we’re going to find out the first week of November

So – for everyone I didn’t get to ahead of time, I’m sorry you’re finding out this way! You are still super important to me! Also, although this is probably not the last time that I will feature tiny shoes on the blog (because they are seriously that cute), that will not be a regular occurrence.

Happy Shoesday!

  1. Woohoo!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was looking at those shoes thinking “the proportions seem off.” Thank heavens for tags!

    Best wishes to you and the architect!

  2. both kinds are SUPER!!!!! the boy ones are adorable and lead to craziness, and the girl ones (in my experience) are much more laid least until the teen years. Oh dear G-d, they have to be teens eventually, don’t they?

  3. Congratulations! That’s so exciting. πŸ™‚

  4. YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations!!!! SO excited for you!!!

  5. Aww you did the shoe post! Yay! Can’t wait for the little one—it’s going to have several “aunts” and “uncles” in town =).

  6. SO ridiculously happy for you guys. So So So. Baby Gazelle is going to be so loved and see so many adventures and just be so blessed. This baby is important to ALL of us and we will be there for you every step of the way. It takes a village, etc! Congratulations again.

    • Are you trying to make me cry at work? *sniff*

      Seriously – I am so glad to have such a wonderful group of amazing friends. Alvie Bean is going to have the best extended family a baby could ask for!

  7. Oh my gosh, congratulations!!! Is it weird that my second thought was, “Oh, maybe not soft goat cheese with the ravioli, after all…”?

    • I think soft goat cheese was a perfect suggestion, and as long as it’s pasteurized, I think I’ll be okay. πŸ™‚

      Also, you are welcome for dinner any time – but I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it to your place.

  8. Such a cute reveal idea! So excited for you both–can’t wait for the Kellogg St. baby boom.

  9. Aw! Congratulations to you both. πŸ™‚


    the east coast kresses are deliriously happy. the ladies are rooting for boy gazelle to help balance out all this estrogen. πŸ™‚

    <3 <3 <3

  11. Okay that’s the best and most appropriate reveal ever. With the first shoe I was like, hmm, that’s a weird shoe. But then I got it. πŸ™‚ Super congratulations!

  12. Oh my god, how did I miss this?!? Congrats! I’m so happy for you two!!

  13. This is great news. Congratulations! And I love the way you revealed. Clever.

  14. How in THE hell did I miss this? Seriously, how?! CONGRATULATIONS! So excited for you. Very exciting stuff. Can’t wait to “meet” baby gazelle!
