the stuff that 4 year old dreams are made of {live from Kauai}


If only happiness were this simple. My daughter, Ruby had her heart set on a pair of Croc Mary Jane's in pearlized pink. Specifically. We searched, we shopped, we offered purple, turquoise and dark pink - no luck. And yesterday, we found them. "Mom! Look! It really happened! Aren't they they the most beautiful shoes in the world?! It really happened!", she squealed as her and my mom walked out of a surf shop. You'd think these were a pair of diamond encrusted Christian Louboutin's by the tone of her voice, but the girl knows what she wants, and clearly understands the quest for fashion. I'm in trouble!

Fun to see pictures and hear stories of Ruby. Sounds like everyone is enjoying their trip! Those really are the perfect 4-year-old girl shoes. I can see why she held out for them! : )

Those are adorable, much better than what floats my son's boat. He thought he hit the lottery when he got his Lightning McQueen faux-"crocs" from Target. A gift from the fam after I already told him "no-way", a grandparent's perogative I suppose.

Brings back memories of Jellies! Mine were pearly pink. At least Crocs are more comfortable. (Amber, you're officially added!)

Ruby's Crocs would look hot with the pink satin jacket you used to rock in the 8th grade. Like mother like daughter.

Am - If only I still had that quilted bubbble gum pink Esprit jacket, you're right, Ruby would flip.

I feel like I'm in the freaking twilight zone!

My daughter made me buy her hot pink Mary Jane Crocs when we were in Maui last August!
