Fashion police? Whatev. Just give me a cookie!


My shoes. They're not brown, but
they are comfortable. I'm such a rebel.
So I learned something this morning and feel it's my duty to warn you: If you go out today, make sure you're wearing brown shoes.
 
Yes, today is Wear Brown Shoes Day, one of those wacky holidays created by someone who, at least in my opinion, has a little too much time on his (or her) hands. The only brown shoes I own right now are three-inch heels, not exactly the perfect match for my typical mom uniform of yoga pants and a T-shirt. So, rebel that I am, I'll be traipsing through the grocery store in my beat-up gray sneakers with turquoise laces. Come and get me, fashion police!
 
Now if you also don't feel much love for Wear Brown Shoes Day, here's some good news: Today is also National Cookie Day, a holiday that sounds a lot more fun and useful to me. Cookies and I get along just fine, especially if they're chocolate, and I'm willing to bet a package or two might fall into my grocery cart...
 
So tell me, friends: Will you be wearing brown shoes today? And more importantly, will you be eating cookies?

This inquiring mind must know!

Whatever you decide to do, have a happy Tuesday. ☺

    1. Haha! You're welcome. Homemade chocolate chip with walnut are my favorites, too. I need to stop being lazy and bake some. :)

      You're right in style. Go, you!

  4. Funny post and I guess I won't be going out today then. I don't own a pair of brown shoes! Oh I'm not sad I can stay in and eat lots of cookies! :)

  5. I don't have any brown shoes, and I don't think we have any cookies either...I may have to eat some tomorrow to make up for not having any today!

  6. Cookies? Well, as it's National Cookie Day it would be rude not to. ;-)

  7. I will not wear brown shoes, because I'm a rebel, too! I'll wear white sneakers.

    And of course I will eat cookies. How could I not? LOL!

  9. I actually wore brown shoes today, and I didn't even know I was being cool. :-) I'm on jury duty this week...my first time, and I dressed nicely w/ dress brown shoes. I'd rather have a cookie, though, too, than spend time being fashion trendy!

    1. Maybe we should create some. Why not, right? :)

      I didn't have any cookies today, but I did indulge in some chocolate. It's a good day!
