    London isn't one of my favorite cities and even having been to all those places I'm not taken with the royals. I wish them well it's just not my cup of proverbial tea.

    I'm enjoying 8 days in one of my favorite towns this week and logging heavy beach time with the littles. Did my first longish (6 mile) run since breaking my hip today and loved every second.

    Hope everyone is having a lovely week.

    I did over 6000 steps in high heels this morning at work. I have a pedometer on. That is a crap ton in heels, man. My feet are killing me.

    I hate high heels. I will never again buy a pair of shoes I would not or could not walk home in. Life is too short to have sore feet.

    I love high heels- would never feel truly dressed up without them. If you are good at walking in them and invest in quality ones with a good fit sore feet aren't mandatory- I can dance all night in most of my shoes and my feet will be just fine!

    They are peek-toe slingbacks with a very hard heel and a slight platform. I was running up and down the stairs (faster than the elevator) as we had a fairly major crisis this morning. They are usually very comfy, but I've never had so much exercise in them before!

    I can't wear high heels at all, I can't balance in them, and they're horribly uncomfortable.

    I'm a sneakers girl! I did finally buy some Toms because of this board, though! And when it's 7000 degrees out I'm in sandals. But I gave up on heels many years ago. The pressure on the ball of the foot was too much, and why bother? I'm in NYC, we walk everywhere. I need shoes that can handle that.

    But they sure look nice on other people. Just not for me. Like the royal family.

    I can't wear super narrow or stiletto type heels. Mine are reasonably sensible. It is work, after all. Plus I had foot surgery in '05 and crazy stupid high heels are definitely not a possibility for me now. Not that they ever were, mind you.

    I hate heels too. I used to wear them for work with my suits because I thought it looked more put together, but I've gotten to the point where I just don't feel like it's necessary to put myself through the pain and instability. I know some people are really good on them. A friend of mine always wore them when we were in college, and I can remember her running to catch the train right next to me in my tennis shoes. But that is one skill that I seem destined to not master in this life time. Oh well.

    Stacey, your day with Weston sounds fun. He sounds like a cute kid for sure.

    Laurie, that's exciting about going to London and Paris, even if London isn't your fav. I can't wait until the kiddos are a bit older and we can start traveling like that! I need a big vacation.

    Melissa - 6 miles and loving it, that is awesome! 3 is about my limit before I start getting mad like "Who the heck said I have to run 5 stupid miles anyway?" LOL

    Bonita - Yum, homemade spaghetti sauce sounds really good. You'll have to let us know how the canning turns out.

    AFM - We are putting in an offer on another house. We saw it yesterday. The guy who is selling it is a contractor and he's still working on all of the updates. It's technically not even on the market yet, but DH drove past it and saw the "Coming Soon" sign and somehow our realtor got us in to go see it before it was even ready. We walked through with the guy and he showed us everything that he plans on doing, and it is going to be awesome, so we wrote an offer that listed out specifically everything that needs to be done before the inspection. Most of it was stuff that he said he was going to do anyway. We only had two extra requests and we offered full asking price, so hopefully he agrees to it and we can get it under contract before it ever even officially hits the market. Assuming we get it we will need to update the master bath and eventually finish the basement, but the house is priced appropriately so that we can afford to do those things pretty soon after we buy it. I'm thinking we'll do the bathroom right pretty much right away after we get settled in, and then the basement maybe within 6 months or so, and then it will be pretty much exactly what we wanted. And it's really close to T's school (.64 miles!), close to a big neighborhood park, has a big fenced in yard with a covered back porch, a nice raised garden area, et cetera. I'm happy with it. Wish us luck!
