and when i say interesting, i mean, it started off dreadfully.
as many of you scholars have gathered, i reside in the desert state of Arizona.
a place i am very proud to call home.
a place i truly love about 8-9 months out of the year.
but there is a portion in the summer months, that i absolutely abhor the place.
that is to say, i'd rather be just about anywhere else but here.
thankfully, a great man named Willis Carrier invented the grand old thing we natives know as the air conditioning.
it makes this desert life somewhat bearable.
well a few days ago, that savior decided to go out in our car.
our black car.
our black car that we don't have a garage for.
we had about 100 errands we needed to run, the high was scheduled to be 106 degrees and we had no a/c.
this did not make me a happy camper.
i begged marcus to get it fixed, but the bill he imagined in our head did not make him a happy camper.
so instead he googled it.
which then took him to youtube.
and one excruciating drive across town took us to a big electronics store, at which, for around $4, he bought the magic answer to our a/c woes.
one we got home it took him about 10 minutes and it was blowing nice and cold in that black-hot-as-an-oven-car of ours.
he came running upstairs with the biggest, proudest grin on his face and he proclaimed he had fixed it.
i loved that face, so i laid my appreciation on thick, and he loved it.
and that, my friends, is one of the very reasons i love the man i married.
it's the little triumphant moments that make life great.
now, for these shoes.
wow. i did NOT expect them to be this tall, but they're kind of great, right?
i feel a little bit like a super model with them on as they take my 5'6" stature up to 5'11".
it's pretty wild up here. and because of the platform, they're not really very hard to walk in.
but that color? i die for the color. so amazing.
stay tuned for a cents of style giveaway coming your way this week!
