My Wedding Shoes!!!

Those of you who follow me on Twitter may remember my tweets of frustration a month or so ago as I tried, unsuccessfully, to locate this pair of Badgley Mischka pink pumps in my size for my wedding day.

Badgley Mischka Xango Pink Pumps

According to the woman Badgley Mischka referred me to when I emailed the company about the shoes, the pumps I wanted first became available in April and the pink ones sold like crazy.

Great for Badgley Mischka. Bad for me.

I searched all over the internet and in local stores that carry Badgley Mischka shoes without avail. The woman I spoke with encouraged me to call my local Nordstrom and ask for their assistance in locating the shoe.

The gentlemen I spoke with from Nordstrom told me the shoes sold really quickly, but that he would call around other stores and let me know if anything turned up.

Well, it did!

Woohoo!!! My wedding day shoes should arrive in 5 – 8 business days.

(For those of you who are wondering what happened to the shoes I originally wanted… Well, I decided against them because they were more than 5 inches high. Though this would work fine with Ryan’s height (he’s 6’2”) I am already taller than all my bridesmaids and didn’t want to look like Sasquatch on my wedding day. Sooo, I opted for a more modest heeled shoe. Still pink, though. πŸ˜‰ )


I wish my lunch was as exciting as my wedding shoes, but as a serious shoe lover, that’s basically impossible.

Well, unless lunch was an ice cream sundae from Houston’s.

My lunch was still delicious though, and that’s what really matters.

Using leftover taco-seasoned ground chicken from last night’s dinner, I made myself a taco salad that included:

  • Spring mix greens
  • Broccoli slaw
  • Frozen sweet corn (It thawed by lunchtime)
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Taco-seasoned ground chicken
  • Crumbled hard shell taco
  • Salsa

Taco Salad


Using salsa as salad dressing is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the slightly spicy tomato-based sauce. It adds so much flavor!

Okay, kids. Fun’s over!

Back to work I go! πŸ˜€

  13. Those are gorgeous shoes! I love the color.

  14. Nordstrom is seriously the best store ever! Did you know that if you buy something from there and it goes on sale later you can contact them and they’ll refund you the difference? True story! I got my bridesmaids dresses from there for about $50 each after it was all said and done! Congrats on finally finding THE shoe!

  24. Those shoes are very cute! I tried them on in blue last time I was at Nordstrom! Perfect evening shoe.

  25. Such pretty shoes!

  26. Just discovered your blog! πŸ˜€

    I am in LOVE with your wedding shoes! I felt the same way when I got married– I wanted a heel, but I didn’t want to TOWER over everyone else, either! (my husband’s only a few inches taller than me, so I had to be careful about that, too!)

    Those shoes look like they’ll be perfect! Glad you found ’em!

  27. I totally became obsessed and hunted down the Stuart Weitzman pomodoro shoe in poppy for our wedding day. It took me 3 months to get my hands on a pair, but it was worth the wait. I recently planned a whole outfit around them so I could wear them out to dinner on our 1 year anniversary haha. Also, love reading your blog when I get a chance! Added it to my Morning Coffee app on firefox. It is so very you… sweet, smart, and entertaining! πŸ™‚

  28. I love the shoes!

  29. Oh and p.s….. I saw your shoes on one of the shopping sites recently and totally swooned! I even thought to myself “Those are PERFECT wedding shoes”. You’ll have fun coming up with special occasions so you can wear them again after your big day.

  30. Oh my gosh those shoes are precious!! They’re perfect! I love the little pink tulle bow on the toe. Also, yummy looking taco salad! Love ground turkey meat!
