Beautiful Saturday in Kansas

Today was d-e-e-e-l-i-g-h-t-f-u-l!  Weather was warm and sunny, teenagers were very sweet and Hunger Games stayed true to the book.  Nothing to complain about here!

I wore my really awesome OluKai sandals that I bought at Nordstrom rack.  I am a a flip flop fanatic, but recently my "old lady" feet have been demanding real shoes.  I have a wicked heel spur, which I wish I could say was due to being a fine athlete, but it's not.  The heel spur is 100% due to standing on my feet, on a hard concrete floor in poor shoes aka flip flops.  Imagine my surprise when I found these stylish little babies on clearance at Nordstrom Rack. The look of cute flip flops, but arch support and a padded heel!!!!   I wore them all day and my feet feel awesome!!!

Another great reason to love these sandals is that they are Hawaiian, like my new friend, Corinna over at Surfin' Through Second.  She gave me an award.  I was simply shocked.  I haven't been bloggin for more than a minute when she gave me a cool award.  All the more motivation to get posting.

Here's my award

I am going in to school tomorrow to get everything ready for our State Testing.  I have motivational smart cookies for our buddy class.  I used mini oreos and created a label that says "you're one smart cookie".  I used a shipping label that was 3"x4", it covered the whole front of the baggie.  Get your labels here.

Have a great weekend!
