Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, last night I came home and found you standing in our living room singing God Bless America as you listened to the Ranger's game on the radio. (Insert three cutieness points here). Dear New TOMS That Were Too Small, thanks for being the perfect excuse to walk around barefoot. It had been awhile since I had felt the grass between my toes. Dear Self, I can't believe you did it. You finally purchased something most girls have owned since middle school. Welcome to womanhood. Dear Husband, remember the night when you thought a spider was invading your face when really I had just recklessly lassoed my Woobie? That was AWESOME.

What are you favorite pair of kicks?

Ps, so far people have guessed that I purchased a purse or a Kaboodle. If only I was that cool! Be sure and check back tomorrow to see why I'm officially a big girl.

What did you finally buy?? PS: Convinced this was all part of the Rangers' plan to clinch the ACLS at home.

Han said...

My pink DMs but they are fading and getting wore out - I need a new pair but they are like £50 and the only ones I can find are Crazy metallic blue ones.

Ashley said...

An old, comfy pair flip-flops, purchased at a Gap Outlet store for $4. I wore them hidden away under my dress on my wedding day, even though I had purchased a gorgeous pair of sparkly, spangly "wedding" heels. I smile every time I slip them on to take the trash out, run errands, or get the mail.

Brandon & Catherine said...

My blue Chaco sandals... I wore one pair through most of high school and all of college before I finally broke down and got a much needed replacement pair when I got married. I also got my husband a pair as an engagement present :-)

CAgridlock said...

Rainbow sandals. They suck for the first week as you break them in, but once you so they are MAGICAL molded to your feet last forever goodness. These are the kind of shoes that you mourn when you have to replace. And my New Balance 1064's. They took my tootsies all through 26.2 miles with almost no ouch at all

Ames said...

did you buy a caboodle???

R said...

though my new career in homemaking & motherhood doesn't give me opportunity to wear them, my high heeled-days were my absolute favorite! i miss my suits, hose and heels... :0)

CAW said...

my brown Dansko's.... I heart them!!!

Michelle (michabella) said...

I LOVE my olive green TOMS!!! And hey... don't miss my giveaway tomorrow!! I am giving a pair of TOMS away <333

Kokie said...

Chucks all the way, they may be pricy, but they last and they're really classy!

Kim B said...

Good ol' Nikes...they're my favorite.

Did you buy a purse?

jaderox213 said...

a slouchy pair of chocolate brown cowboy boots i bought in nashville during cmafest. so comfy and cute...i could wear them all day, anywhere and everywhere.

Timothy Loerke said...

If I could wear my Tom's every day, I would. Unfortunately because of work and...sad to say...the aromatic smell that eminates after a hard days work...keep me at an average of 3x per week. However, I feel as though I have my dancing shoes on during that time!

Scatterbox said...

My red Chucks that I've had since 9th grade. US made back then and waaaaay more comfy than the cheaper-quality overseas ones they make now (of which I own an additional two pair. Can't get rid of the old ones and still have to go with that pair from time to time, even though I do have new reds.

Anna said...

I could live in a pair of Danskos. Best shoes ever.

annie h. said...

my black rainbows. i have worn a pair nearly every day since freshman year of college.

sarah richmond said...

emo little, did you buy what i think you bought?!? If so, what will you use your caboodle for? i think you should grow succulents in it.

ps. SUFJAN STEVENS. SHUT. THE. BACK. DOOR*
(extra soup for you if he plays barn owl, night killer)

T-minus 36 hours before twinner and tim-tam sammies!! *CAN'T WAIT*

XOXO,
twinner

Laci said...

Did you buy a curling iron? Even though big bangs may not be "in" now, be careful not to burn your forehead!

Daniela Wilkerson and Family said...

I usually go barefoot most of the time. One of the perks of living on the Gulf Coast. But if I am required to wear shoes I will wear my favorite pair of flops. They're black and are perfectly molded to my feet. I cannot leave the house without them and if they get misplaced so I am forced to wear a different pair it just feels wrong somehow. I love them.

When I got married 5 years ago I did like Ashley did (above) and wore my favorite flops with my wedding dress. No one ever knew. My faves at the time were neon orange. In one of my wedding pics you can see a little bit of the orange peeking out from under my dress. To this day that is my favorite photo.

ummm....so I am going to try to guess what you bought that most girls have had since middle school. The first things that come to mind are make-up and a bra....is it one of those?

Meagan said...

Did you buy a bra?

cara. said...

1. what did you buy?
2. my toms were too small and they sort of stretched out and fit perfectly. and now even more perfectly that they have a hole where my big toes can escape.

onecraftylibrarian said...

My brown boots. I love them. Wearing them makes me happy.

bethany said...

I love my toms - because they wool-lined and with the GA cold, I might freeze! (haha) I also love my leopard print shoes I wore on our wedding day.

Michele said...

hahah Kaboodles! what a throw back!! like trapper keepers & walkmen. maybe you bought fake nails? seems unlikely but you are full of fun surprises!

when it's warm out, i looove flip flops and having my toes free. i have some Merrills that are super comfy, functional, and have flowers on the soles. (i first typed souls - flowers on your soul would be cool too!)

Morgan said...

I see someone else said, but my Toms were too small too, but now fit perfect (same with my son's). I think they're supposed to be a little snug so they don't fall off.

My favorites (for Fall) are any of my boots. I love boots!

Steph said...

i'm gonna say bra...not sports bra...but a big girl bra. :)

love to you from the rockies!

Hannah said...

i like running around in my bare feet :)

did you buy an eyelash curler?

Marissa said...

Am I supposed to know what a Kaboodle is? I feel as though I might be the only member of the female population that doesn't

Today's Letters said...

lt, will you be coming to any of the games? you have a place to stay in dallas if you do.

han, i likey!

ashley, i can relate to your love for flip flops. tim and i (and our wedding party) wore reefs on our wedding day. a perk of working at an outdoor store.

brandon & catherine, you had me at chacos!

cagridlock, i've had my pair of rainbows almost 9 years. they are a close second next to woobie.
ps, two points for also loving new balance.

ames, so funny. you and my twinner asked the same thing!

r, you are a mom who used to wear do me heals. you are officially my hero.

caw, good choice.

michelle, my first pair is falling apart (hense the new pair). so sad to have missed your giveaway ...

kokie, totally agree. worth every benjamin.

kim b, i don't know what i'd do if i had a purse! which is probably why i should get one for special occasions. i have a tendancy to bring my satchel everywhere.

jaderox213, onecrafty & morgan, a good worn in pair of sh%t kickers. can't beat em.

husband, your TOMS smell like cheese, but you are the love of my life and i heart you more than cheddar feet.

scatterbox, you rock chuck taylors? i should have known. reason #584 ...

anna, that's what i've heard. i'll have to check them out sometime.

sweet annie, i would have guessed rainbows. you threw me with the black, but i can picture it now. ps, i like you.

twinner, you didn't answer the shoe question but my guess is barefoot. so you can get coffee bean burns on your toes. they're kindof awesome like tattoos.

laci, i wouldn't know how to even turn on a curling iron. i need help.

daniela & meagan, boobie baskets! nope, i thankfully have some of those. but i liked your comments.

cp, my first pair did the same thing which is why i bought a new pair. i learned that not all TOMS fit the same. ps, love you and the cub.

bethany, you can rock TOMS and leopard. i like you.

michele, you said trapper keeper and walkman. please tell me you used to watch kids incorporated?

hannah, a friend tried to show me how to use an eyelash curler once. they still terrify me.

marissa, kaboodle = kind of like a girly tackle box for girl things. i used to use mine for micro machines. (insert biggest tom boy here).
