the post where i admit what a nerd i am.

today is not just the day before heart day...

it's Happy Birthday to Robbie Williams!

yes, my forever celebrity crush-- the one i've wanted to marry since i was 10.



alas, we -- Robbie & i -- both got married to other people this year! ha

i wrote it was his birthday as my status on facebook (yup, i'm that obsessed) and it's so funny because a girl i knew in middle school commented that she can't think of Take That without thinking of me and Marianne (you had New Kids on the Block... me & twinkie had the British version Take That, the boyband robbie williams started in. He was their Donnie Whalberg). Then a guy that was in my high school art class remembers me gushing about the concert where my dream came true and i saw Robbie Williams live!

you see, this love of ours has history. So much so that my husband just rolls his eyes and forgives my teeny boppness.

at any rate, marianne texted me about flats from target i would love and told me i should treat myself on Rob's birthday. i have no flats other than my moccasins and was on the search for some.

found : mustard yellow, last pair in my size!


any excuse to shop for me... Happy Birthday Robbie! and here's a song for those of you who have never heard of my :cough: would-have-been-husband. It's one of my favorites...



if you got through this crazy post, thank-you! i did warn you at the title *wink

I love those yellow flats and their cut outs! They are so cute! As you know, I've been trying to wear flats to work lately to ease my miserable back pain. Kate got me a cute floral crushed velvet pair for Christmas (look at our sisters looking out for us, ha!), and I have two pairs of TOMS that I have grown to love.

You and Robbie are so funny. And you don't look any different than you did in college--I'm jealous!

that's EXACTLY why i was on a search for flats-- because after my last massage and they told me that was the reason for MY miserable back :( and i remember what you said about hearing the same thing. I'm not ready to give up our Carrie Bradshaw heels JUST YET but... if i could find a cute pair of flats then i could give my back a break every now and then right? :) look at our sisters! ha i love it :) i am still a non-owner of TOMS but my little sis and Momma love them :) perhaps i should get with the program!

i still have those big cheeks :) but i've since stopped dying my hair :) love you!

this is so cute! I had been looking for some mustard flats & i broke my rule of not shopping for myself to get them as well! they are PERFECT! and i'm excited for the warmer weather in MD this week to wear them. I love my heels but being 5'10...i love a good pair of flats as well :)

Micaela! Huge to you and birthday boy Robbie :D

No shame in being nerdy! And I love it when I get the last pair of shoes, and it ends up being in my size. I call it meant.to.be.
