Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world…

Okay… so do you ever just have one of those ‘off’ days? Wednesday was totally one of them. I was scheduled to do two (not just one) TV segments and was totally not prepared. My kids had been sick all week (if you missed those posts see here and here) and I just hadn’t had the time to prepare. Luckily the segment was on headbands…. and I love headbands!

So Wednesday morning rolls around and  I was totally rushed. It was 11am and I hadn’t showered or figured out what I was going to wear. Which btw, I was supposed to be there setting up at 12:30pm and it was at least a half hour drive. Luckily my mom came over and was able to help with the kids. At about 12pm, I threw everything in the car and rushed out the door. At 12:30 I pulled in the parking garage and gathered all my stuff. I stuffed it all in a huge laundry basket so it would be easier to carry the block I had to walk. I was running late at this point.

As I started rushing to the studio in my tall pink shoes carrying this huge laundry basket, I felt a bump. That bump took me all the way down. That dang speed bump!

My first thought was… dang it I should of worn the boots! Me second thought was…are you kidding me?!! My heels caught the bump and I literally fell crashing down. Literally a big FAT wham on the gravel. It was on a hill too… so it was not a delicate fall.  Luckily my basket caught me so my hands weren’t too beat up, but my feet got the worst of it. I remember all week thinking oh crap I’m going to get sick while I’m on the show (due to my kids)… now all I could think about was “oh crap I’m not going to have anything to show. It’s all broken.” Thank heavens nothing was.

I looked down and my legs were bleeding. My favorite heels were pretty much ruined. That wasn’t the worst part. My feet were very banged up. They hurt. It felt like I had just hiked the grand canyon up and back in those dang {super cute} pink heels. I walked slowly to the studio and sat down as soon as I walked through the door. The nice receptionist brought me a couple of bandaids, which I didn’t have time to put on while I walked onto the set. I felt so flustered and really couldn’t feel any pain at this point… I was just worried about what I was going to say. Oh crap….really…what was I going to say?! I hadn’t had any time to prepare anything. I just kept thinking, “oh crap.”

Well luckily the host guided me along and I felt like it actually went okay.

But seriously… the shoes…the fall…my feet….what a day! It was all pretty embarrassing, but actually pretty funny to look back on. OH and if you realllly want to watch the segment you can see it below. :)
