I recently joined a network for local bloggers called SoCal Lady Bloggers (SCLB). It’s really been great getting to know more of the bloggers in my area. I’ve even signed up to attend my first event hosted by one of the other members. Next Friday night, I’ll be heading over to The Makery for a Crafty Night In. It’s being hosted by Letitia over at Crafty Amiga, and I’m really looking forward to meeting some other area bloggers!
Now, I’m sure a lot of you know that my “go to” hobby is cross stitching. A few years back, I even ventured a little into the realm of card making. I’m planning to get back into that as soon as I finish school in December. Other than stitching and card making, that’s about as far as I’ve ever gone into the world of crafting, so this will be something new for me. There are three projects on the agenda for the evening: decoupaging a candle, glittering a papier mâché box, and embellishing a journal. I’ll be sure to post next weekend with my results … maybe.
Another fun thing the group does is the weekly SCLB link-up. They throw out a topic each Friday and then anyone who wishes to participate over the next week can do so and then link up over on the SCLB blog. Fun, right?! Yep, I thought so as well, so I’ve decided to play along.
Ironically, the topic for this week is all about shoes. I say ironically, because unlike many of my female friends, I am SO not a shoe hound. Now purses and nail polish, that’s a totally different story. When it comes to shoes though, it’s just not really my thing. Not counting my six pairs of flip-flops and Birkies, I probably only own about 8 pair of shoes. I used to have more, but I recently did a closet purge and got rid of any clothes and shoes I either didn’t love and/or wear any longer.
As I mentioned, I only have about 8 pairs of shoes when not counting my flip-flops and Birks. Of that, three or four of those are athletic shoes. Fortunately, I work for a company with a pretty casual dress code, so it’s absolutely fine for me to wear sneaks to work. Yay! Since I’m not a major shoe hound like my friend Shari (be sure to check out the pair featured as item #19 in this post!), I figured I would just focus on my latest shoe acquisition for the purposes of this post. Here’s they are:
This is the Nano 2.0 shoe from Reebok which is their latest entry designed primarily for CrossFit consumers. I received this shoes as part of my swag bag at the FitBloggin’ conference I attended recently up in Portland. Even though I don’t participate in CrossFit, I love these shoes! I’ve been using them for BodyPump and they work great for that, too!
Do you consider yourself a shoe hound? How many pairs of shoes do you currently own? Am I missing a girl gene somewhere?
Until next time …
