Amaze me August #28 ~ BCBGirls Sandals giveaway ~

Woo hoo, time for another week of amazing projects. 
I love seeing all the new people joining in every week. I am so happy when I find a new fabulous blog, who found me first!

This weeks giveaway, is kinda brought to you by me, but really it's something I won myself, and was totally excited about, until I got it, and reality set it, I should have known better. Since almost breaking my ankle, and having a few extra kids, I've not been able to wear heels. I pretty much live in tennis shoe, flip flops, or my comfy boots. Shoe shopping has always been hard for me, BUT when I saw these sandals, I just thought they were awesome. Totally looked like something I used to wear all the time (back when I was a youngin) and those were super comfy.

Needless to say, I received them, and tried my very best to prance around the house in them, trying to pretend like I could walk, BUT, no such luck. My princess however was having a field day with them, and wished I could give them to her, go figure, lol. 

I'm sure that there are plenty of you out there with major shoe obsessions, and would just die for these, so here you go girls. Bless your little hearts for being able to walk in them, and I am almost envious, because they are killer sandals, and they look so hot on, dang it. I really wish I could have worn them :)

Anyway, my loss, is your gain, as they say. So without further ado, please check out this fabulous pair of sandals I won from the lovely Ani from AA DREAMS BLOG. A beautiful pair of sandals from the awesome chicks who believe that even in a recession you can still look fabulous!

  1. What a lovely giveaway! They won't fit though. That's a good thing I guess cuz my husband just laughs when he sees a female wearing heels. He thinks they are the most foolish thing ever. He's probably the only guy like that!
    Anyway, good luck to the people that enter because everyone is gonna want them!

  2. OH!!! I am ALL ABOUT the heels! I can strut better than John Travolta in 6 inch heals without even a flinch AND chew gum at the same time. BUT I have itty bitty feet so I'm sadly out of this giveaway!!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
