I can hardly believe it's Monday again already, though. The weekends seem to buzz right by! Saturday John and I went Christmas shopping and knocked out the vast majority of our list. The only two people who still need presents are our dads. Dads are impossible, though. If anyone has great dad suggestions (including you, pops!), please let me know! I also got to do one of my *very* favorite things this weekend. My mom and I have gone to the Nutcracker since I was a little tiny girl every year. The past several years have been even more fun because now my brother's wife comes with us. I basically adore her. She sent me the sweetest picture of us at the ballet with a lovely note. I'm posting it :) We had a great time at the ballet and then had dinner and went shopping afterwards. I got *the* cutest set of Christmas dessert plates that I want to show you, but that may have to be a separate blog. The ballet was gorgeous. I'm inspired to work ten times harder in class now!

|The finished product- ta da!|
This whole process took about 15 minutes (including making the mod podge!). I think that makes it a pretty simple way to make old shoes brand new again! I've read that mod podge doesn't hold glitter too well long term. If that's the case, you can always coat it with clear krylon according to this blog. I really like updating my shoes, because I don't feel like buying any new pairs right now, and I haven't got anywhere else to put them either! I'm working on covering a pair in fabric. I'll let you know how that goes. So far, not as easy as the other 3 pairs I've got going on.
Now it's time to clean the apartment! I have big plans for Christmas music dance parties while I do that. I hope you have a glorious day and as always, thanks for reading! Pin It
