Happy Birthday Carissa Boo!!

Now in your old closet Todd built those shelves... and I just went and looked at my shelves that were identical. I think with the shelves they would hold 24 pairs. Although you probably have more now since you've had to buy cold weather type shoes. Hum.... I will guess 37 mostly black shoes!! So there you have it!!

I wish I could have sent you an R.J. Goodies cake!! With milk!!

Jenn said...

Happy, Happy, HAPPY Birthday Carissa!!! love your new clogs you cute thing. I'm gonna guess that you have 19 pairs of shoes... I have no idea why...it just popped in my head!! xoxox...jenn

Oh Carissa, First let me say "Happy Birthday" and I love your new clogs!!! I wish I knew you better....are you the clean-your-closet-every-three months kind of a girl...and send all the extras to Goodwill. Or are you like me and would immediately panic if asked to find and count all your shoes??? I don't know but I'm gonna guess you're more like me....

I say 47.
