It's that time of the year...

Okay, ladies, here's the Sandal Oath for those who have not read it and sworn to it yet:

"Please raise your big toes and repeat after me: As a member of the Faux Paux Sisterhood, I pledge to follow The Rules when I wear sandals and other open-toe shoes: I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not bulge out between the straps. I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe. I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow. I will shave the hairs off my big toe. I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there. If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it. I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr.Scholl's if my feet need him. I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' si zes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle. I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages. I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes look like they've been dragged behind her car on the way to work and no sandal in the world is going to make her feet look good. I will promise if I wear flip flops, that I will ensure they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them. I also promise not to scoot across the floor. I will promise to go my local beauty school at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $15 and worth EVERY penny). I say spend another $15.00 and get an even better one. I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals... For all our sakes, please don't keep this to yourself - pass it on to other Sisters."

KU and Hitler

Bryan and I love March Madness. Even though I typically forget to fill out a bracket and Bryan's is pretty much shot this year, we both enjoyed this video. Anytime you can link KU and Hilter together, it's a good thing.

5 Tips from David Tutera

I have recently been tuning in to My Fair Wedding on WeTV. David Tutera has done amazing work. Of course, we can't all afford some of the events that he creates. I like this little tip list he came up with. Love the idea of using 1 color in abundance and also the water idea. Love that he brings up the appropriate height for a centerpiece. How often do we sit at a table and feel like we're talking to a flower where a face should be?

Cute Wedding stuff

Some people may not know that I have been coordinating weddings at FBC for just under 10 years. I've also done several outside of JC. I LOVE weddings. Partly because it's almost always a joyful occasion. Mostly because I adore my husband and the day we were married was the first day of the rest of our lives.

Often I come across different blogs that have awesome wedding ideas that are affordable. I love affordable and unique! So, with that in mind, check out this red balloon idea. Awesome alternative to rice seeds and bubbles.
