feet

i have an obsession...of taking pictures of my feet.

and it's kind of ironic, because i have quite unattractive feet.

my toes are short and wide. real toe rings never fit on them. only the adjustable kind were even half-way decent.

my feet are altogether wide. i often choose wide width shoes and you will never see me in certain heels or sandals because my feet just dangle over the sides.

my ankles aren't really ankles at all. they're much better classified as cankles. my friend in high school thought it would be funny to gift me a necklace one year for my birthday...to use as an anklet. only because the anklets in the store truly didn't fit around my ankles. it was funny meg. real funny.

my ugly feet used to give me a lot of anxiety. i'm pretty much over it now. not that i wouldn't wish for a different set. i can give you names of a few people whose feet and ankles i'd take without even blinking.

and yet i like to take pictures of mine? it's kind of become a tradition. wherever i go, you'll see my 10 toes {or the shoes they're hiding in} captured forever on my canon elph. it's kind of fun to remember various vacations and outings based on what shoes i wore or what the floor looked like.

so, much to ryan's dismay, i took lots of feet pictures in hawaii. these feet went to pearl harbor, the beach, the airport, diamond head, restaurants, a rental car, airplanes, the pcc, a mini golf course and lots more. and i have the proof.

I have no idea what you are talking about ;) Are you sure I really did that??? I'm glad you had fun in Hawaii, and for the record I think you have lovely feet and lovely ankles.

Haha. Love it.

Love the feet-just be glad you don't have mine. I have toes that could be fingers and big bunions...not pretty! I do love your tan flats though-where did you get those? I should actually ask this, where do you shop to get all of your fabulous clothes-I love everything you wear!
p.s. I just made your crockpot lasagna-fabulous and for sure a new staple in my menu so thank you!

I have always thought my toes were so ugly. It took me a few months of dating before I would show Carson my toes! Now I just don't care and I go barefooted all the time. You have some cute shoes by the way!

you are a shoe person! I would only bring 2, maybe 3 pairs (sunday, flip flops, and tennis) on a vacation.

and i thought i was good to only bring 4! beach sandals, regular sandals, casual shoes, hiking shoes.

Those pictures are awesome. I LOVE the red sandy toes and BLUE water, just a picture perfect day. And your little yellow cover up is so cute. I also can't believe how TAN your legs are! AH!! You are right, you will be known as Leah's nanny for a while! I LOVE your shoes...all of them. Especially the brown flats with the little button at the side. I was going to ask where you got them...someone already did. I MISS TARGET SO MUCH! I think I could be a millionaire if I brought it up here!
