I Hope Your Sitting Down! (a can't miss deal)

Yesterday while the mini’s were at pre-school I was my usual chicken with it’s head cut off, trying to get everything done I could in my limited 5 hours. It was a busy day, and I was able to fit in a Dr’s appointment, lunch, stopping at Mr. Monogram’s office, a dash into the drugstore, a stop at the UPS store, the bookstore, and then another little excursion into Steinmart. Quite productive, I’d say! But I was exhausted when I returned home from picking the mini’s up from pre-school. That is until I saw the surprise was awaiting me at the front door from my favorite men in brown

My By Paige Ballet Flats!! And let me tell you, as cute as these are on the website, they are sooooooooooo much cuter in person and on my pedicured preppy little feet. It was just the pick-up this tired mom needed, and I even wore them to Bunko last night and got loads of comments on them. After much debate, I got the lime and white checked ballet flat and I think I’m going to get a lot of wear out of them. The colors are great, and I paired it last night with a casual summer white eyelet skirt, and a green cable-knit tee. They are very comfy, and not “hard” or “tight” like some other needlepoint brands. The leather is very soft and the soles are great also. The actually move with your foot instead of being a really hard sole. Truly, I can’t recommend them enough and the customer service at By Paige is fantastic as well. You know that goes a long way in my little monogrammed book, too.

As if it’s not exciting enough that my shoes arrived, Courtney at By Paige has the most excellent and exclusive offer for MM readers! I hope your sitting down because I promise I’ve never shared a discount like this before..

What's Bunko?

What's Bunko?!?!?

Bunko is a very popular dice game played by ladies. Typically you play with 12 or 16 players-4 players per table. It's very easy, lots of fun and there is lots of eating and drinking involved. It's very big in the burbs and is a regular monthly excuse for ladies to have a fun night out (you rotate houses).

There is now even a National Bunko championship in las Vegas and You can read more about it on Wikepedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunco

Our Bunko group was forced to disband when our husband's started calling it Drunko!! Oh well.
This discount rocks - these shoes are precious!
Thank you!

I have been watching these cute needlepoint loafers at By Paige. Maybe it is time to order. Do you find them to be true to your shoe size?

Monogram Momma said...

teaorwine: I wear a true 7 but i find them to be just a tad big so I would order a half size smaller next time. It's hard to know with ballet flats, as I've started figuring out! I bought one pair from a maker in a 7 and they were great, then I had to buy a 6.5 from another place because they were feeling a little big. So I would recommend a half size smaller or if you're in between sizes, go for the smaller size.

I can still wear these w/out a problem though; i just have my little shoe inserts I put in and they're perfect. Isn't this the best deal?!!?

suburban mom said...

SO cute! I think I need a pair. I also need a bunko group ;)

teaorwine said...

Thank you! Now, I have to decide on which pair to purchase.

teaorwine said...

I chose the navy and white checked flats...can't wait!

Monogram Momma said...

Oh, I'm so glad! Those are so cute! You're going to LOVE them!

Hi - I came across your blog while Google-ing Whitney English. We really have alot in common and your posts are very entertaining to read.
From everything I've read about you it seems like you would LOVE Eliza B. flipflops! Have you heard of them?
I remember the first time I saw the price tag, I was like "I am NOT paying $40 for a pair of flipflops!"
and now here I am, ELEVEN pairs later. I love them and wear them as much as possible.
Take care,
