I have an old pair of Birkenstock sandals, which I found on clearance somewhere for under ten dollars.
I absolutely adore these shoes; when I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is get dressed, and these are the shoes I wear until I need to put on "real" shoes for the real world.
When these shoes finally expire, I will grieve. So I am already looking to replace them.
Today, in keeping with the Birkenstock mentality, the kids and I went to the craft store, where there are tee shirts three for a buck. Yep, three for a buck. You have to check them carefully, as some have holes, but many are simply stained. We came home and tie dyed these shirts.
Now I am dreading the day when all of us go out together dressed in tie dye. Perhaps I need to get floral decals and a Make Love Not War bumper sticker for the van.
