Fashionista Friday - Twinkle Toes are Not Just for Dancing

My Mom was in town visiting and a tradition she has started is taking the Twofer shoe shopping.

Whenever they need new sneakers, Grandma loves to go

and

better yet

pay!

This year El ran right up to the table with all the blingity bling on it. The table had a sign on it that said Twinkle Toes which makes you think of dance shoes, right?

Wrong.

This table was covered with sparkly sneakers.

And she had her heart set on a certain pair that are high-tops.

And a certain color.


Bad hair day...but fabulous shoes!

And her enthusiasm alone convinced her twin sister that she MUST have the same pair.

I argued they aren't practical for sneakers, it's the middle of winter, they will grow out of them before Spring when they can really wear them and enjoy them....


And Grandma said, "Oh let them get them! What do you care? I'm paying for them."

And all was good.

The Twofer are a little star-struck with Lisa from Milkshake

We recently had the opportunity to see a few members of Milkshake play and it was up close and personal.

Dacning to Milkshake band

We're sitting on the floor of a cafeteria type room at a local community center or something. (Totally fine, tickets were only like $8 for each of us.)

We get there about 15 minutes before show time and Lisa (vocals) is setting up the equipment when the girls see her and squeel,

"Look Mommy! There she is!"

So I say, "Let's go up and introduce ourselves."

Twofer, "NO!!!!!"

(I imagine the internal dialogue to be more like, "Are you crazy mom! She's a rock star and obviously very busy. Don't bother her with your lowly self.")

So then I say, "We have a mutual friend. I'm going to go up and introduce myself. You two can say here if you want", at which point I go up and say,

"Hi Lisa! I'm a blogger and we have a mutual friend, her name is.....is....is....um...RockCandyTV on Twitter?" (doh! {smacks head} I've forgotten the mutual friend's name and the Twofer are soooo right I should just sit my lame butt down but no, I have to clear myself here.)

"Um, I mean....I can't believe I've totally forgotten her real name!"

at which point Lisa nicely points out, "Oh! You mean Nancy? I love Nancy!"

Me, "YES! Nancy. Anyway, she introduced me to you guys and I did a review and giveaway on my blog for your last CD/DVD and my kids are completely star struck (nice mom, deflect awkward moment onto the children) and won't even come up to say Hi to you"

I'm sure Lisa is wondering why I didn't just listen to my kids but she's sooo nice she just smiles and asks me my blog and we talk briefly about Twitter and I sit down cause she's got wires and props going all about and really...I should have just asked her if she needed any help.

She is so nice, she paused to take a picture with the Twofer after the show:

Disclosure: there's nothing to disclose. I purchased the Milkshake tickets myself. Milkshake had nothing to do with the post other than make music my kids love. The did not review this post prior to publishing.
