Leaving my Childhood

So now for the answer to yesterday’s mystery picture…

Last weekend I managed to clean out our guest bedroom closet and do some rearranging. One of the things that I decided to part from was the box below. You see in the ninth grade I starting dating an upper classman (despite my parents dissaproval) and for Christmas he walked into my house with a big Victoria Secret bag. My parents almost died. Lucky for him, he had only give me a perfume set that was in the white box. To this day I sware the only reason he gave me that perfume was to get a reaction out of my parents when they saw him with that big pink bag…

Anyways, that boyfriend came and went along with a few others but I always kept the flowers that each one gave me and put them in the white Victoria Secret box. As I went through the dried up flowers this past weekend most of them were corsages from school dances and proms but there were a few roses in there too.

I had always told myself that once I was married I would part with that box of flowers…and this past weekend I did. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. The idea of throwing away a piece of my childhood seemed so sad but when it came down to phsyically doing it – it wasn’t that bad. I am in a new chapter of my life now and I couldn’t be happier.

I still have a big box of love letters, stuffed animals, cards and pictures of my high school boyfriends at my parents house. Those items are not as likely to attract bugs as my flowers! I think I’ll leave them in their box for a while and hopefully on a rainy day go through them with my sister and have a few good laughs.

We’re Working On It!

Here is a little story to bring a smile to your face…

Recently, my hubby’s aunt had a death on her side of the family so she took her one year old with her to Texas and left Andrew, her 4 year old with her husband. While her hubby was at work Mr. Stiletto’s grandmother offered to watch him. One afternoon as they were playing Andrew announces that he would like a baby brother for him and a baby girl for his sister to play with. Grandma thinks that twin siblings would be wonderful and tells Andrew that he should tell his parents his wishes.

Andrew quickly responds, “We’re working on it Grandma!”

I can’t wait to remind Andrew of his statement in fifteen years…

Happy Monday!

My Stilettos

Welcome to Newlywed Stilettos! Let me start by telling you a little about myself and why I started this blog….

I am a twenty something young professional who loves stilettos.  Six years ago I met the love of my life and we recently married on a beautiful September day. Like many other new young wives I am aware that I have some pretty big shoes to fill! I am excited to take on the challenge of wearing my own stilettos comfortably while doing my best to be the same wonderful wife that so many amazing strong women around me have been.  I know sometimes those new hot pink heels will rub, give me sores and make me trip…but that is why I have started this blog: to blab away with you as I walk down the newlywed road!
