Don't laugh...

Since you asked Michele... the shoe count for this wedding is now up to 7 pairs.

So to recap, Monday I ran to DSW in a "I have no shoes for this wedding!" panic). I bought 4 pairs, tried them on for my mom & brother, and realized I had two left feet. Three pairs went back, 1 pair was swapped for 1 right and 1 left shoe, and then we decided that they were no good for the wedding but I'm keeping them for work.

[deep breath]

Tuesday night I was in the city, so I went to Macy*s on the way to Penn Station. The saleswoman was the SLOWEST woman ever and helped everyone else before merely waving her scanner past the 5 pairs of shoes I was carrying (argh!). They had little in my size and in the end I got 1 pair of shoes that everyone liked.
Total shoe count: 5 pairs.

Today on my way home from work I stopped at the Macy*s on Long Island - I needed hoisery for the weekend. I hate tights. Anyway, I found 2 pairs of shoes, both pairs better than the other Macy*s pair. So far I have 1 opinion from mom & Patricia, and another from my brother. C is stopping by Saturday night to give the final opinion.

Can you tell I'm mad frantic and busy for this wedding? This weekend is the Aufruf (sorry no time to find you a link but try google ;-). We're having Seudat Shlishit (ditto on google) here tomorrow - a huge production, basicall buffet for 80, no cooking allowed on Shabbat itself so a lot of prepwork this week.

Anyways, gotta go get ready for the dinner tonight. At least it's at my favorite kosher Persian restaurant :-) Ttys!

Seven pairs! I'm gonna goggle those words, you know, when I was little I wanted to be Jewish, but my parents were like, what, your Catholic, well, being a catholic sucks, so I quit going to church a year and 3 months ago. (I'm a heathen now I guess, hahaha)
Hope Grandma is hanging in there!

It sounds like you have your hands full (of shoes and things to do)!

I commented on a previous post but for some reason it didn't come through. I'm enjoying all the news of your wedding preparations, especially the shoe hunting (you are starting to rival Imelda Marcos!) Sending good wishes for your grandmother's continued strength and comfort.

Forget Imelda, you're going to have more shoes than me soon! : )

7 pairs of shoes for one wedding...I don't think I have 7 pairs of shoes in my regular shoe line-up! I'm not a shoe person...I live in my tennies, and if I'm dressed nicer, I have a pair of Eastlands or some black dress shoes, depending on the level of "nicer".

My sister, OTOH, is a shoe nut. I think she could wear a different pair of shoes for months on end without repeating...well, maybe I'm exaggertaing a bit...but not much. :-)

Guys, I'm really not that bad! I'm only keeping 2 pairs. Of the 7 pairs, 3 have already been returned, and 2 more are going back right after work tomorrow.

The shoe thing is funny. I'm glad you are down to 2 pair though..ha ha.
But having 7 pair must have been fun while it lasted.
