1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

  I just bought a dress in the wrong size, too.  I tried it on at Christmas time, and didn't buy it because it was too expensive, but then I found it on sale online for less than half price, so I bought it.  I'd lost ten pounds since Christmas, and the dress was plenty big when I tried it on, so I thought I should order down a size.  Wrong-O.   I need to lose five more pounds and invest in some shapewear, I think, before it looks good.  And it's for an occasion at the end of next month when I really do want to look my best.  Poo. </p>

That's a great motivator.  You look awesome in your photo, so thin.  NOT short and stout!

I prefer that ~ a thin platform toe and then about 3 inch heel.  It makes my legs look bangin'!  (Blindingly white, but bangin'!)

Do you wear these when running?                 NIKE Custom High Heel Shoes

Exactly.  She and I spent an afternoon, seemingly eating our way around DC, a couple years ago.  We had lunch at Union Station, then walked around and got a snack someplace, took Metro to the hotel where we were going to meet Savcal, and snacked at the bar, and then we had dinner with Savcal and PeteyandJoey'sMom.  And then we had to pay a ridiculous cab fare to get back to the train station on time :)</p>

I miss P&J'smom.  Was she as pretty in real life as she sounded on the board?  Summer's coming, so no white shorts unless they are lined.  ;)

yeah three inch heels put me well over 6 feet.. but i'm already taller than my wife so I guess it's no big deal, I just get tired bumping my head on things.. plus I can't walk in them to save my life

PNJ is beautiful, both physically and as a person.   I get the pleasure of seeing her 1-2x a year, and I always look forward to it.   Her dh and kids are all beautiful too!
