A Pair of Red Heels


Nina Ricci's mary Jane's remind me of Judy Garland's red shoes in "the wizard of Oz"


Ugly, green... defeated. That's what described the woman who looked like she came straight out of The Wizard Of Oz, standing right infront of me.
I clicked my red heels together once and she glared at me. ''It's rude to gloat,'' she snarled. My tiny terrier barked fiercely at her. She aimed a horribly aimed kick at him, missing by a foot or two.
''Fine. You can buy those red heels anywhere, but... they're sentimental to me. My mother's,'' the woman sends a sad glance my way but I ignore it. ''So, I'll make you a deal. Give me the heels and I'll give you a wish of your heart. Win, win.''
The heels were beautiful, but the woman was right. I didn't need them. So what did I want? My parents were dead. They died in a tornado several years ago. I could bring them back, but I didn't want to. They were probably happy where they were.
I had a nice apartment, I had done what I always wanted to do: move from Kansas to Maine. I had food and water, everything I needed.
That went from the question of what do I need? to What do I want?
It came sudden and clearly; friends.
''Fine. I'll trade you the heels for three new friends,'' I say, already removing the heels. ''Deal, deal, deal!'' the woman cackled. She snapped her fingers and the heels were in her hands and I could barely see three figures walking towards us.
''It was... wonderful... meeting you, Dot.'' the woman says, and her tone implies ''unpleasant'' should take the place of ''wonderful''.
She leaves with a  snap of her fingers, a trail of green smoke left behind. I turn to face my friends.
Slowly, they come into view... a man-sized lion that looks like it used to be a toy puppet for children, something that looks like an oddly bent watering can, and a garden scarecrow.
I sigh. I should have known there would be conditions with the woman's agreements. However, I start walking towards my friends.

Meet Peri and a New Design

First off, thank you all for all those sweet comments on my last post. You guys made me feel so good. <3

Second off, who's Peri? Peri is the new co-author of this blog. I think you'll enjoy Peri's writing, here's a little bio she put together for y'all {Peri doesn't have her own blog}:

Hi, I'm Peri. I love eating healthily, and singing along to music. Adele's my favorite. I love bright colors and I love eating. Haha. Also, I love to pretend I'm a bird.

Why? Because Peri's a bird. Syke. Also, I won't be pretending to be a bird on my blog. -_-





Last Thursday, I bought a bird. Periwinkle. She's a parakeet, and I'm not sure if she's a male or female {you can't tell until they're older, but from now it looks like Peri is a girl.}
And about Peri rocking out to Adele--it's true. She loves it when I sing, but obviously I can't do that forever. So I put some music on shuffle. Peri chirped to some of it, but when it got to Adele, she actually tried to talk {you can tell because the sound she made was not a chirp}. She's lov-er-ly.
Honestly guys, I swear: I love my little bird. You know how long they last? 10-20 years. I could be taking this birdie to college with me, maybe even getting married with it.... -.-

How do you like the new design? Do you have a parakeet? If so, do you have any good tips? :)

My Blog was NOT Deleted. ;)

I realized that if I clicked on one of my blog posts in my site feed, Blogger would say my blog was deleted and not let me view it. :(
I changed my blog address back to what it use to be, so now hopefully when you click on it you can see it.
I'm not actually sure what I'm going to do about this... But I'll keep you updated.

*This blog is still under construction!!*

UPDATE:
Random thought guys: What if dogs/animals understand what we're saying but don't know how to respond?!?! {I know this may not be very scientific, but I just thought it was interesting}

Changing my Blog Address// Blog Title

So imagine this:

A super mature blog, lovely post. You click the comment button. With swift fingers you write words of praise, adding your name at the end. Hoping this blogger would follow you, you add in your own blog address....
And cringe.

Katie's doll world? First off, my name's not Katie. Second off, though this use to be a blog about dolls, it's not anymore. For my own sake I'm changing the blog address. :)
I'm not sure what this actually does, so if you don't see my posts in your special little box, then come make sure blogger did make everybody unfollow me or something. ;)

Also, I'm changing my blog title yet again. Beware new followers, I tend to do this a lot. ;) But I've thought over this one and I hope to stick with it. And with that.... this blog is under construction!! ;) I'm not sure when I'll post again but I'll try to get the whole thing down with before I post. ;)

Do you Ever Feel Like Stopping?

{inspired by this post}

.

So, I've realized... sometimes I feel like quitting blogging. Often, actually. And no, this is not my ''goodbye'' post. This is just a heart-to-heart chat; you and me.
I always felt a little bit of it, but when I read that post I just realized it.
I look around at all the big bloggers. They have so many followers, so many beautiful $500 camera pictures, so many posts, and the best designs. I can't get to that. But I can try, maybe by not using grammar in my post and pinterest pictures that don't have anything to do with the post.
But, that's not me. Yet I feel so pressured to be that way if I want to have lots of followers.

I just want to be me; have my own style of blogging. Maybe once and a while a post is dull. Maybe most of my posts are picture-less. But is that me? Yes, it is.

I'm still puzzled. Why do we all want to be the best blogger? We all started innocent, just wanting a place to record our thoughts, maybe have that special blogger friend. But it so quickly turns into a game to beat everybody else by having the most sponsors or followers.

I just don't know. What do you think?

xoxo

This Week {#3}

This Week:

  • Finding several comments that blogger marked as spam without me knowing and going: ''aw, I missed those comments? Now I can't reply because they'll {dah commenters} won't look for the answers!''} {In short, sorry Jenny and Layla}
  • Sleepovers with friends. <3
  • The Elite, Maze Runner, Beautiful Chaos, Fever 1783, and more. Uhhhh, 'nuff said.
  • Fresh bread baked everyday for the purpose, only, of lunch. Let me stay at your house.
  • Starting things. School, dance, CO-OP, even more. I'm not sure if I like it or not.

There should be more, but I went sight seeing earlier today in D.C., and I'm awfully tired. Later my fluffy unicorns. Stay lavender.
