I'm with you on the GI Joes. Ken is a little girly, don't you think?

I only started wearing shoes over 2 inches in the last couple of years. I used to only wear flats, now I'm strutting around in my heels.

Hold the presses! Don't just gloss over it, man. What is your tattoo of and where is it? Inquiring minds want to know!

I got too old for heels too recently...it's a sad day when you go to buy saucy shoes and come home with New Balance trainers.

Halie,
Oh yeah, Ken showed me nothing...remember GI Joe with no shirt on?

Acquisitionist,
You're a hell of a detective.

raidergirl3,
I do have some boots with 2 inch heels that make me feel more powerful.

joemmama,
I have Fred Flintstone feet, so red polish doesn't work for me at all.

Kookiejar,
That tattoo, my first and last, is a blue heart on my left shoulder blade.

Ella,
You'll feel less matronly when the baby comes. By the time he/she is 2 years old, you'll be thinking saucy shoes again!
