You guys have no idea how much will power it took to keep from pairing this Minnie Mouse sweater with yellow heels and a bow on my head. I really do think like a five year old sometimes. Instead, I just went with her signature red because I had to make Minnie proud. After all, I did live in her hometown (well, one of them) for several years and frequented her home in Magic Kingdom. Speaking of: I’m dying to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (it’s kind of a tradition) but I won’t be home in time! What the heck, Mickey? Why does your Christmas party end a week before Christmas?! Instead, I’m thinking of taking Tessa to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – has anyone been?
I don’t really know why I’m complaining about missing out on something holiday themed in Florida; NYC is one of the most amazing places to be at this time of year. I think the holiday spirit fully hit me today, as Wendy and I were perusing the pretty holiday window displays (including Coach’s flagship – I’m in the window!!). I got a little distracted by all of the pretty and wasn’t paying attention to my walking (I’m pigeon toed. It’s necessary); I almost took out an entire crowd in an epic stumble. Wendy totally saved my butt from hitting the ground. Thanks, Wendy! It’s not the shoes – they’re actually really stable and easy to walk in, because of that huge platform. I’m just a total klutz. I tripped down the subway stairs in flats this afternoon.
It just never gets easier, this walking thing. For Christmas, I want a jetpack!
p.s. FYI, Danys are on sale and they have an extra 25% off with free shipping on the site. I just texted her to let her know and she responded “Holy sh**” – I think that means she’s buying herself a Christmas present.
