FASHION FAUX PAS

Remember when I purchased my very first pair of kickin' (brown) boots?  It was just about a year ago.  Since that time I have acquired a second pair (black) of boots because I love them so.  Today I was getting dressed and pulled out (what I thought were) my brown boots, zipped them up and walked out the door for church.  30 minutes later I was sitting next to Bubby during Sacrament Meeting, rubbing his back while listening to the speakers.  All of sudden Kaleb sits straight up, leans over to me and whispers, "Mom...um, you have two different boots on."  What?!?  Couldn't be.  We were sitting near the front of the Chapel and at that moment I felt like all eyes were on me as I peered over my knees and down at my feet.  Yup.  I was wearing my brown AND black boots.  Laughter bubbled up from below as I tried to stifle it.  My eyes were watering from laughing (silently) so hard!  It didn't help that Kaleb poked his dad on the other side of him and pointed out my fashion faux pas.  He immediately broke out in laughter and poked his two girls to LOOK at mom's feet.  They in turn poked those sitting next to them.  It was a Domino effect of epic proportion.  I just want you to know that I stayed.  I braved out the rest of the 3 hour church block with my high fashion, mis-matched boots.  I think I'll start a new trend.

(thank goodness for Stevie's sense of fashion, most eyes were fixed on this beauty of an outfit)

LOL, I am ever so grateful for Hannah that way. ;) She is so dang cute and quirky. Makes it easier for our 'mommy moments' to blend in.

That's funny. I did that once--I had a navy blue shoe and a black shoe on, both the same style. I noticed it while walking along the Charles River with a patient's husband passing the time of day when I looked down and saw the two different colors. Now I check to make sure! Love Stevie's fashion sense, too.

Happens here every Sunday I'm not here, and Miller goes to church with two different shoes. It's the genes.
