The weekend rain stopped and the puppy and I went out for a walk yesterday morning. It was a beautiful day, but there were many puddles on the ground. After walking through a couple of them, the bottom of my foot was wet. My left Adidas sneaker had a warn out hole at the bottom. I’d like to think that I’ve warn them out with all the walking we do, but I think one of us has sped the process up a little more.
These sneakers are so comfortable, but since they were no longer viable, it was time to head out and find a new pair.
The drive to and from Sherman Oaks was so pretty. I love the sky after a rain, and everything seems so clean.
If you look closely, you can see a little snow on the mountains. I thought there’d be more because our temperatures fell quite a bit during the storm, but it seemed to only cover the tops.
My favorite shoe store, DSW, has a location in Sherman Oaks and there is also an Arclight movie theatre. Before shopping for shoes, there was time for a movie…Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
Have you seen it? It leans towards a chick-flick, but it was a very nice, sweet film. After the movie, it was on to some shoe shopping.
My plan was to head directly to the sneaker section, but I had to walk through every other section on the way. All the summer sandals were out, the sassy wedges were out, the new flats were out. And I have a small lack of control problem when it comes to shoes.
I left the store with three new pairs…
and none of them were sneakers! In my defense, the sneaker selection was quite limited, and I just couldn’t help myself! Granted, two of the pairs I can’t even wear yet since the weather is still a bit chilly, but they are so darn cute. And I guess now I have to shop for sneakers at another shoe store. Oh, all right if my arm is twisted!
