    I actually didnt take any of me. We got a really nice one of DH in his serge, and Trent in his little suit. Super cute!

    I ended up leaving the room to nurse, but the way it was set up, I was actually just behind a curtain, so could hear everything anyways. Thanks for the stroller suggestion. I ended up taking him for a walk in it outside after dinner and a nurse, and he fell asleep so we could stay later and enjoy some time 'baby free'. Word of advice though: Strappy high heels, and baby do not mix. I did so much more walking than I normally would at that kind of event. I finally took them off and walked around barefoot. I'm classy like that

    Strappy high heels and *me* do not mix, LOL! I don't wear shoes I wouldn't want to walk home in. I'm glad you had a good time, and that you were able to stay after Trent fell asleep!

    Hey, I went barefoot on the dancefloor at my own wedding, you just couldn't tell.

    I'm so done with heels. If I never put on another pair of high heels in my life, I will be happy. I know they make your legs look nice, but DH thinks they are dumb, so I'm not even worried about that aspect of it. Flatz4Life, yo!

    I am so with you on that. I used to love wearing heels in college but I am so done with them. The only time I would even think about wearing heels was if the length of something was too long and I needed a heel to keep my dress from dragging the ground or something. I am really short so I really could use a few inches but it is just not worth it.

    I have a pair of custom-made orthotics that can go in my dress shoes. They were $500 but I didn't pay. Yay for benefits. I can wear heels with no pain at all.

    I will say though, that since I started running I have been having some problems with the stabilizing tendons around my knees, and after a night on high heels, they feel much better! I think it is because I was forced to use the muscles they attach to, which helped stretch the tendons out. I have since switched to running off pavement to avoid the problem in the future, but thought it was interesting that heels helped

    I love heels, I kind of have an obsession with them. But every time I wear them I end up in a really bad mood and I think it is because my feet hurt and it is harder to chase my children.

    I wear them in case I can no longer fight the urge to stab a certain coworker in the eyeball with the heel, a la Die Hard. An icicle would probably be most effective, but they're hard to keep frozen at my desk.
