Anyone feeling a little sleepy this morning?
We are still catching up from our weekend away.
But the garden thrived while we were gone! M and I picked some kale and herbs for our dinner last night. Funny he will eat kale straight from the garden but has no interest in using a plate and fork.
Last night’s dinner was so good and super easy! I made Cook Smarts‘ Mediterranean Chicken Bake. We fell off the Cook Smarts wagon for a while, but when I’m stumped about meal planning I always go back and never regret it! This recipe was so simple -just top chicken breasts with artichokes, capers, tomatoes and herbs and bake for 20 minutes. Top with feta and serve with salad. For our greens I massaged them in sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, a dash of Dijon and salt and pepper.
This morning we had eggs, cherries and a toasted roll. Mazen was excited for day 2 of summer camp!
Let’s talk about shoes for a bit!
I LIVE in Toms – they are one of the few brands of shoes that I can wear without socks and never get blisters. Plus there are so many colors and styles now! I know the aren’t the most supportive, but I don’t have problems walking miles in them. Should I not mess with a good thing and just update my older style?
I think I’m looking to change it up a bit though, and am in need of some super comfortable shoes for walking around Charlottesville in the summer. Notice I said walking – heels no can do! (Little wedge, maybe). I have to be able to walk miles in whatever I choose. I also have wide feet, so there’s that.
These are my dressiest walking shoes right now – they’re super comfy and have that sparkle that I can dress up or wear with shorts. (They’re the Born Joya style.)
I’ve heard a lot about Tieks – are they as comfy as everyone says? But the PRICE TAG! Love the Silver Lake.
My friends were over last night and said there are many comfy flats for half or 1/3 the price. Zappos overwhelms me!
And speaking of all-purpose shoes, I just bought these for Mazen last night at the recommendation of a few friends! Cute and very practical for a toddler! But I will say, he loves his Toms too! (Calls them his “tongs”)
Tell me: what are the most comfortable (yet stylish) summer shoes you own? Which ones should I get?
