a confession, blasphemy and new shoes

Like many other peeps out there in the world, I'm going to see the new Sex and the City movie this Thursday with some girlfriends. We'd planned on dressing up, but seeing as it's still 54 degrees and raining in Portland, we ixnay'd that plan (although, the SATC girls always seem to endure freezing NY temps wearing next to nothing). But here's the confession part: before 2 days ago, I'd never seen a SATC episode in my life...gasp!! I know!!! SCANDALOUS!!!

I honestly think I'm the only person on Earth that didn't know what a reference to "Mr Big" meant before I borrowed all the seasons from my BFF (thanks, step!). But now, I know.

Is it ok that I think the main character is a whiney, shallow egomaniac? Is that all part of the premise? I'm only on season 1. Does she grow up? Or will that be the premise of the movie? Ooh, don't tell me...I want to be surprised!

I'm sorry to bad mouth this show, but so far I'm not hooked. And I hate that Carrie smokes. But I do love the clothes...yes, the clothes are vicarious eye candy to this SAHM who will never step foot in a Manolo Blahnik. Sigh.

Speaking of shoes...must show Esme's newest wardrobe additions (thanks again, step!) These are all "pre-used." Can you guess which ones were hand-me-downs from her brother?

RedMaryJanes
Red patent leather mary jane doc martens...I want them in my size!!!

PinkBrownConverse
You can't tell from the pic, but these are pink and brown and about 3 sizes too big.

DinoBoot
And of course, Holden had to model his beloved dinosaur boots.

OK, off for more SATC!!

Love the shoes! We just ended up with 3 bags of pre-used clothes from my Esme's cousins (and managed to fit them all into our suitcases back to Africa), so I'm having lots of fun expanding and mix-matching her wardrobe now, too.

Don't worry Mel, I have never seen an episode and don't plan on watching the movie. I guess I didn't really have any girlfriends when the show was popular or else I live in a cave. See you in a couple of weeks!!

I also love the shoes...so cute...and the movie??? well what is there to say about that? I don't have any gal pals who would want to see it either...I love the idea of going dressed up to go to it though...how cute is that??? You must be a fun bunch of ladies.

I had no idea they made tiny Doc Martens! Those are some serious dancing shoes.

I also like your dino boots Holden, they look like you could really STOMP in them!

I hear you on the SITC blahs. I saw some of it when it was on air but it never spoke to me. It has nothing to do with the way I live my life. Not that Lost does either, but that's GOOD tv!

Enjoy your night out with your girlfriends. That's the real fun!

Um, I love SATC! Guess I'm in the minority here. I will say the first season is a bit different--the characters aren't as developed yet. I wouldn't bother seeing the movie unless you are a fan of the show, though. It's just to get caught up with the characters, not a stand-alone movie in my opinion. I love the red shoes!
