A little sunny in my step...

So Saturday I had a lunch date with a few girlfriends in Portland. I was really feeling like I wanted a cutsie new pair of shoes to wear but feeling a bit of squeeze on the 'ol pocket book...I put the idea aside. Then I thought how cute yellow shoes would look with the scarf I was wearing and the next thing you know my old black ballet flats were transformed into these darling sunny shoes with the help of a little acrylic paint! I love them! They really did put a little sunny in my step. Good girlfriends + cute shoes=a very happy day!
In other news, my Kelly Rae class has started! It's giving me much to ponder so far and I'm trying to keep a journal of thoughts, feelings, ideas that come up along the way as Kelly suggests. I left a comment on today's class post and after I saved it I counted the other comments and was elated to see that my comment was #8! 8 has always been significant for me, it's kind of my lucky #. I was the eighth grandchild in the family and my grandmother made a shirt for me with a big #8 embroidered on it. I know it sounds kinda silly, but it made me feel like I was on the right path taking this class. A little nod from the universe if you will.♥
To all my fellow flyers that have come by to visit and been kind enough to leave a comment, "Thank you!" It means a lot to me. I'm so excited to see that the majority of followers now are people I've never met. I'm trying to get to every one's blogs and meet all my classmates, it's difficult working full time and having only one computer to share between myself, husband, and the kids. I'm so glad I started blogging and happy to meet so many lovely people. I'm off to a family BBQ with the folks now. Happy Day to you!
