toms

i made russ sit down with me an order himself a pair of toms.
he acted like i was telling him to put on dress and high heels and go to a biker bar.
they came in the mail
i catch him checking himself out every now and then.
i think we have a convert.

speaking of conversion:
did you know that russ converted to our church when he was 16?
he said that his friends had a light about them and he wanted to find out what it was
a few months later, BAM, he got baptized.
i met him only a few months after that.
some of my best friends saw him get baptized, but i didn't.
if i could have one wish, it wouldn't be a million dollars, or even world peace (sorry world)
i wish i could have been there to see it.

I had to tell you that I love your headbands! I found your blog through your etsy site... hope you don't mind.

My hubby and I also love TOMS, they are our favorite gifts to give each other. I have been dying over those anchor ones {good choice}. Oh and my hubby is a convert too.

Hope you have a great day! :)

I had no idea. My dad's a convert too. That's so cool! I seriouly admire people like that. Especially that he was 16! An age to go party and have fun, and not care what the future may have to offer. What a stud.

I remember that! Weird that I was there? Ya! But i remember it being amazing. Muffin is a good man with some good friends. Im so proud of them for doing that at 16 years old? Most of us were egging peoples cars, giving wedgies, and strapping bottles to our heads to look like cones..wow.
