Aren't all these Tom Shoes cute. I have never owned a pair, but lots of my Tulsa friends wear them, so I decided to try them on. I bought the Dark Turquoise ones that are just like the Coral and Black ones in the picture - a heavy lace fabric. And they are a Nordstrom's exclusive, so I won't see too many of them in the Nordstrom desert that is Oklahoma. They are being shipped, since they were out of my size (which is a full size smaller than my normal size, but of course the Nordstrom shoe salespeople know that. They are so good!) I almost couldn't resist the Sam Edleman Yellow Rose Ballet Flat, but I got so overwhelmed by all the cute Spring shoes, I actually forgot to go back for them.
And after so many weeks of Lent, showing up and tipping at Starbucks and Jamba Juice, etc. I had someone indulge me by giving me triple extra nuts for my oatmeal. Doesn't it look delicious? Oh, and on the subject of oatmeal. I thought putting milk or cream on your oatmeal was required, but I am finding a whole huge group of people who eat it plain. (Un-milked, that is.) I know John always has done it that way, but is this another of those Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip type of things? I understand different topping - brown sugar, nuts, Splenda, raisins, cranberries, butter, coconut - the list goes on and on. But no milk? Yes or no? (Oh yes, one of those tricky questions where voting "Yes" means "No".)
