Nike's, Angie, Natalie, and the 80's

Prominent in international street scenes since the early 80's, the Nike Cortez is a true star classic and takes the reign for defining retro. Featuring a durable bottom and a lightweight nylon upper for easygoing comfort,the Cortez is clean cut and can accommodate any outfit.

If you haven't read my sister Natalie's blog, you really should. I have the funniest sisters ever, and she writes incredibly well.
So she talked about a story where her first pair of Nike's were mismatched, because my mom found them on clearance somewhere, and how I stuffed my feet into them, although they were a few size too small for me. Remember, mom bought these for Nat.
And yes, it's true, my feet are a slave to fashion. I have never cared about how shoes feel, just how they look. Case in point, I found these snakeskin stilettos this week, bought them, and almost fell twice at work. They were so hard to walk in - I bought them a little bit because my foot looked better in them. Man, by the time I walked out of the door at work, I almost took them off. I had to walk so slow as to not have them flip off and me biff it. Yes I always have been, and will be, a slave to fashion. Just don't look at any pics from my "ugly" era. Years 1994-1996/7. WOOF!
So, Nat's blog had me thinking about my first pair of Nike's. I remember when they were the coolest thing EVER! Well, when I finally got my first pair, they were from Grandpa Savage. He worked at a spa or something and somebody left their shoes and I was the sweet benefactor of their forgetfullness. I really felt like I was somebody after that day.
My second pair of Nike's were pink - had an odd style - but hey, they were Nike's, right? I bought them with my own money from Pick n' Save. Now that I think about it, I don't think Pick n' Save would have Nike's so I'm sure they were Mike's.

January Adventures

Draper Temple Open House

Two Trips to Cali:
Palo Alto & Anaheim. No not Disneyland, but CHA - the Craft & Hobby ASsociation Trade Show. Sorry, no photos from the first trip!

Some of my favorite inspiration from the show...

Seeing Paris Hilton at the show...

Not that I'm a fan, but she's prettier in real life!

Meeting the 5th member of the village people...

Watching 3 of the 4 most handsome men walk home from church...

The missing 4th handsome man was with me at the emergency room with second degree burns:

Boyd, my brother Ryan and the boys all went ice fishing on Saturday, without sunscreen, and they were gone all day. After going to sacrament without Hell Boy (his new nick name), my neighbor convinced me to take him to the emergency room because she scared me about scarring. He's now on a heavy dose of steroids, not the muscle building kind, much to Bryant's dismay as baseball season is starting again :) (don't worry, we had the "say no to drugs" talk). He's doing better today, but we're back at the dr. tomorrow to look for signs of infection or scarring.
