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?

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

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

  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!

Not warm enough here for them yet but I was thinking of wearing some type of heel when we go out tomorrow night with friends drinking/eating but the majority of my friends are shorter than me (the girls) so I feel like I would be towering over them. lol. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</blockquote></p><p>I have my new one on right now w/a tank under it and a jacket over it.

While I tend towards flats while chasing kids, I just bought a pair of 5 1/2" nude heels that I can not wait to wear. I'm quite bummed that the weather this weekend is not going to be condusive to wearing them. They're simply too high for all my pants though. But I will be like 5'8" in those shoes. A-mazing.</p>

OMG.  I would be 5, 11 1/2"!  I'd be taller than dh.

What, you meant the bruschetta flavored chips I had today were not healthy.

Clearly, it's tought to not only read words in posts, as written (and nutrition facts) it's also tough to read registration dates under screen names and note that the dates are not current.  :)
