Shoes in the Mail!

When I checked the mail this evening, I found something VERY exciting!  A notice from Canada Post that a package has arrived for me.

Canada Post notice slip

The notice I have been waiting THREE WEEKS for has finally arrived!

I put my order in for my Competition shoes over three weeks ago.  I was quite concerned that there was some fiasco at the border and that the shoes wouldn’t make it to my house…so much so that I called the company and begged them to chase the shipment down for me.  Last I heard, the shoes were hanging out in NYC…not that I blame them.

So off I ran to the postal outlet to fetch my shoes.  Chopping, weighing, and measuring supper can wait!  As a Figure Competitor it’s important to have your priorities in place; shoes obviously come first.

As my five year old niece would say, "EEEEEEE!"

I ran home head first into the cold, arctic wind we are currently experiencing up here in Alberta and immediately opened the box.

Figure Competition Shoes

Yes...I purchased two pairs. I just couldn't decide!!

At the time, it seemed completely reasonable to purchase two pairs of shoes.  What if I didn’t like one of them?! To pay to ship them back to America and then purchase another pair and pay shipping yet again, well it just didn’t make sense.  I am QUITE sure that it won’t make sense at all to my husband.

I am very happy to finally have my shoes, it makes it feel like its really happening.  Now I have to answer the very important question, ‘To bedazzle or not to bedazzle?

Completely clear and streamlined or a splash of bling?

I guess I have 30 days to figure out the answer.

And they go with EVERYTHING.

They totally go with jeans, right?

I am officially 6’1″ with the shoes on…a GIANT Figure Competitor.  Posing practice is going to get even more intense with these puppies on.  If you hear a very loud crash and a clear, bedazzled, five inch heel goes flying over head; don’t worry it’s just Donloree Hoffman up in Alberta having a near death experience while practicing her posing!

    yes to bedazzling your shoes. Question now should be: Tacky or Classy?

    Nice! Except…they look virtually identical to me. Have you chosen your competition footwear officially now?
