The 5th post I ever wrote on this blog...

Today's Expat Blog Challenge: Look at the 5th post you ever wrote on this blog. In hindsight, what do you think of your frame of mind and your writing?

The 5th blog post? Do I have to? Are you sure you wouldn't rather have me write about my 2nd blog post Resolutions for a new decade where I explore my life path? Okay fine, I'll write about my 5th blog post. Heck, I'll do you one better I'll include the whole thing for ya. [See below] Spoiler alert: I wrote about shoes.

My frame of mind? It was January. I was living in Chicago. It was cold - oh, so very cold. There was snow, plenty of it. I was thinking about keeping my feet warm. I was thinking about boots. Cute boots, cause gosh darn it, sometimes I like to be girly and cute.

So what do I think about this post now? Well, I'm a bit embarrassed I am revisiting it & not a more profound post - but, oh well... such is life. They can't all be winners. As for writing style? Did I really have one? This was pretty short & sweet - check out these deals.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what the other bloggers in the challenge wrote about for their 5th post. Will anyone have anything as embarrassing as mine?

♥ I am in love ♥


Do you know that feeling when your heart soars and you just "know" that you are in love? Well friends, that is exactly what happened to me yesterday complete with starry eyed appreciation for the object of my affection. I feel it is now time to declare my love to the world.

Dear World,
Meet my beloved.
Xoxo,
Samantha

Love my Shoes Ladies this site is fabulous! They really have some great deals! To give credit where credit is due, I came across this site as a result of building up the fashionista section of my google reader. The Budget Babe actually blogged about www.lovemyshoes.com and I have to agree it is a wonderful site! Below is a slideshow of some of my favorite deals. Check out the red zipper boots "Addiction 53 by Anne Michelle." How could one not feel "bad ass" in a pair of red zipper boots? LOL. :-)

Samantha, what came to mind this time as I read was that your writing truly lives up to your blog title. It makes me smile.

I find shopping info useful especially since I've been in Melbourne. It's better now, but I used to have no idea where to go shopping and found everything super expensive (I still do actually).

Oh! That is so nice! I am so glad to hear this! That was the point of naming the blog that & I recently started to question the name of the blog - so I really appreciate this!

You know what, Cosette, that is a very good point. Too bad this site doesn't ship to Oz. Lol. Your comment makes me think - perhaps I should try about Sydney shopping. I find the prices so expensive as well... can't bring myself to buy a lot of it... too much money! Would be kinda cool if I could do some nice budget fashion blogs.

No reason to be embarrassed about that post. The writing style is very conversational and sweet. And who doesn't love a good sale?

I want you to know that I went ahead and read your Resolutions for a new decade, and I think that "the pursuit of all that is good in this world" is the greatest resolution ever. And, it's very you. Love it.

I really love this blog post. I've been focusing so much on all the serious stuff, and well, sometimes shoes can make you super happy! I love it. Thanks so much for sharing it!

am in desperate need of some good boots, here in Michigan, so this blog entry has reminded me to look for some! (That is before I am reminded by not feeling my toes every time I go out)

hahaha. i felt the same way when I looked at my 5th post. but there's no shame in writing about a good pair of shoes. dogs are man's best friend. shoes are ours.

Darn skippy! I'm starting to feel better about this post. Lol.

 
At February 5, 2014 at 4:24 PM , Blogger Samantha said...

Haha. I am glad I could be of service!

 
At February 5, 2014 at 4:26 PM , Blogger Samantha said...

Aww, thank you! So true - we shouldn't have to be sorry for or be embarrassed about anything that can make you happy! Lol.

 
At February 5, 2014 at 4:27 PM , Blogger Samantha said...

Thanks, C! I'm glad you liked it - that was one of those - I wrote & forgot about. Lol.

Thanks, Yvette! I appreciate it!
