stilettos and strawberries

i am a heels-wearing girl. 
at 5'4", i need all the height help i can get!
my preferred heel is a wedge 
(no sinking into grass, no teetering on cobblestones or poorly-paved parking lots!)

don't get me wrong, i LOVE my flip-flops, but when the sweet mFw at bestowed the stiletto award to me, i was so honored. not just because i can't live without my heels, but because of what it means (according to the award)

Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

i'll take the classy and strong, for sure. 

thank you!

as for strawberries... i love them, too!
today is the day of our town's annual strawberry festival, and i'm taking muffy!

the downtown will be themed out with the delicious red berry...for sale in pints 

and my highlight: the shortcake!

it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood toys

who was recently redesigned for muffy's generation

still sweet as ever!

hope you're having a great day!


  1. I had no idea that SS had had a little work done! Still as cute as ever. I had every Strawberry Shortcake thing imaginable as a little girl - the bedding, the bedroom mirror, the soaps! But, do you remember the SS bandaids that were scented. I loved those!

  2. Delish! (Especially when covered in chocolate... that's my sweet tooth talking.) And who didn't love Strawberry Shortcake? She smelled so good! Have fun with Muffy! XO

  3. Ooh, Yummy! I love strawberries. There is actually one in our town this weekend. May have to check that out!

  4. Great minds must think alike because I LOVE wedges too! And for all the same reasons! I think I've already purchased 4 pairs this year. Terrible, I know :-)

  5. Your strawberries make me wish it was FEB. here in Fl! That is when our strawberry festival is! I am so impressed you can walk in stilettos! I'm afraid Mama Henley is far too clumsy!

  6. Remember when all the SS dolls smelled like the fruit they were? I remember I had little mini ones I used to keep in my pockets lol

  7. I love heels as well and over the years have become loyal to my wedges!! They don't hurt nearly as bad and have all the perks you mentioned as well! My strawberry favorite is to bake a pound cake and toss strawberries in sugar (to make a glaze) and pour on top of the cake while it is still warm....

  8. Congrats Girl! Loving the strawberries! I was never into SS but I like her new look! Hope you're having a great week!

  9. Congrats on your award honey, well deserved indeed! I am with you sista, being a shorty I will take all the help I can get in the height department!! :)

    Love all your strawberries, that shortcake image has my tummy growling, it looks divine! YAY for strawberry festivals!! Hope you had a blast with Muffy! xox
