Material Mama

I am fully aware of the frivolosity of this post but it's my blog and I'll blog if I want to! Somewhere in Proverbs, God says, "A hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." I do not believe God intended that verse to apply to things like gorgeous golden gladiator sandals, but since God is the only God I have I thank Him for these pretties, since He is the Giver of all good gifts!

Gladiator sandals became 'cool' like 2 or 3 years ago and that is about how long I have wanted a pair. Because Mother's Day is Sunday and JW can be so thoughtful I am now the proud trend-following owner of gladiator sandals. I will probably not take them off until it's bedtime. Aren't they gorgeous? Who needs a pedicure when your shoes are gold? Now to get Eli a matching pair...

Since you read my inane love for my new sandals, here is a gratuitous pic of Eli eating homemade cupcakes. The recipe comes from Critty's Kitchen, a local up and coming awesome baker and mommy extraordinaire!


  1. The sandals . . . love them!

  2. Fun with cupcakes! And I can't wait to see Eli's matching sandals! Yours are beauties...your hubby did a good job!
