Finding Footwear

So I'm pregnant. And my feet are huge and swollen. And shoes are uncomfortable. So I decided to buy my first pair of Crocs (or at least imitation brand of them). I've shunned these shoes for several years now. Everyone had told me they were comfortable, but let's face it, they're not the cutest footwear. They used to be everywhere and on everyone. So now that I had finally decided to get a pair, they are NOWHERE to be found. Seriously. I have now looked at Walmart, Target, and Payless. I can find some for men and tons for kids, but NONE for women. I somehow missed the craze.

So now that I NEED these shoes, I can't find a single pair. I don't know if the search is worth since I only have a few weeks till the baby anyway; however, I have heard that your feet can swell postpartum as well. So can anyone tell me where I can find a pair of these shoes?

Happy Mother's Day!

This is an interesting day for me. This is the first time that I can kind of celebrate Mother's Day. Morgan's still in my tummy, but to me, he's my baby already. I love my baby, and I'm sure I'll love being a mom once he finally gets here.

I wanted to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in my life. I have to first and foremost thank my own mother who brought me into this world. I am so lucky to have such an awesome mom. She loves me, and I love her. What more could you ask for from a mom? I am so grateful for my mom. I can't imagine anyone else who would've been better. She's such an amazing example to me. I'm appreciative of everything she has done for me. I wouldn't be the person I am today without my mom.

I'm so glad to have such a wonderful mother-in-law. I'm so lucky to have married a man who had such a great mother and did such a great job raising him. I always wanted to marry into a family in which I could feel a part of. The Beckstroms have been this family. I felt like a member of the family from the beginning. From the first time I met Alice, I knew I would be happy in this family. I truly gained a second mom. (You can never have too many moms in your life.)

Happy Mother's Day to all my grandmothers out there. Whether they are my grandparents by blood or marriage, they are all wonderful, wonderful people. And I love them.

Happy Mother's Day to all my sisters/sisters-in-law. You are all such great examples of mothers to me. I'm so happy to have you in my life.

Happy Mother's Day to my friends. I love watching you be a mom and realize that I can do it too. :)

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. I think the mothers of the world can and do make a difference.
