Passion Unleased

Hubby will be a groomsman in a friend's wedding in 3 weeks. This occasion also happens to fall on our 10-year wedding anniversary. So, yep, I will be fine-dining at someone else's rehearsal dinner on my anniversary. (Insert your own snarky comment here on my behalf.)

Anyway, I plan on wearing a (boring, black) dress that I already own, but was hoping to spice up my staid ensemble with some fun shoes and jewelry.

And what's the surest way to get out of a funk?


So off to DSW I trotted.

Where I unearthed The Deal Of The Century:

Aren't these peep toe black sparkly shoes cute? They're by Nina (which, coincidentally, was the same brand that I wore at my own rehearsal dinner 1o years ago. Awwwwww...)

Guess how much they were?


Hubby, needless to say, was not nearly as impressed with my mad bargain-shopping skillz as I had hoped.

Me: "I may even wear these naked later that night *raising eyebrows and making suggestive google eyes at him while he was stirring the rice for dinner*

Him: "Yup. I can see that happening. But only because you'll be too drunk to figure out how to get them off your feet."

That right there, folks?

Is 10 whole years worth of TRUE LOVE.

I don't even know what to say about your hubby's comment, but it was hilarious! Sounds like you two have a fun relationship.

I seriously can't believe the amazing deal you got on those adorable shoes.

LOL!!! Just goes to show that what matters most in a marriage is a sense of humor! (And hot shoes.)

Mom of 5 said...

I love them! And I LOVE great deals! I hope you have a good time.

And your hubby...well, it made me laugh, but if it had been me, I would have thrown the shoe at him. :)
