Summer Shoe Shopping Spree

I love shoes... as evidenced by the large number of them I have in the closet, on the bedroom floor, and right inside the front door.  And I love Target.  Last weekend, Scott and I went on a little shopping spree and I added three more pairs to my collection.  Despite the cooler weather this week, I had to wear a couple of them.  ("Oh, open-toe shoes!  You must be freezing!"  No, I'm just willing to sacrifice for fashion... at least when it comes to shoes.) 

Believe it or not, these shoes are not only cute and fun, they are actually super comfortable... no blisters on the first couple wears!  I wore the wedges and heels twice each this week - paired the wedges with black cropped jeans and slightly-boyfriend jeans cuffed at the ankle, the heels with dark-wash boot-cut jeans and black pants.  With some warmer weather, I'll try out the flat ones... with shorts, dresses, skirts, pretty much anything.  I live in flat sandals in the summer.

What do you think?

Post-shopping excursion, we cooked up a delicious dinner that made me even more eager for the days of eating alfresco.  After searching for marinade ideas for our pork tenderloin and realizing we had next to nothing, I found an easy combination that only required two ingredients: yellow mustard and apricot jam.  We actually had both items (strange, I know) so I mixed them together and spooned the tangy-sweet topping onto the pork when it was close to done cooking.  The result: a yummy glaze with just the right amount of sweet and spice.  (You can change the proportions based on which flavor you prefer to be stronger.)

A caesar salad and grapes were great, crisp sides and a bottle of sparkling wine served as the perfect complement.  Shopping and shoes and dinner and wine... what more could a girl ask for?
