One of these things is not like the others...

Notice anything strange about this photo?
Maybe one black flip-flop and one brown flip-flop.
That's what I get for buying up a bunch of Old Navy flip-flops in various colors while they were running a 2/$5 sale last year!

I normally do not have a hard time telling the difference between brown and black, but I must have been in a hurry and didn't bother to check them... they both feel the same on my feet. :)

So how long did it take me to realize my error??
Well, I left the house at 11:00. We ran a few errands, the girls and I got haircuts, and we headed home.
I kicked my shoes off in the hall (don't tell me you've never done that) on my way to lay Riley down for a nap.
I cleaned the the living room and worked on folding some clothes.
I swept and mopped the kitchen floors. (I must have been really focused not to notice my feet while sweeping and mopping!)
On my way back down the hall way (after having walked past my shoes at least 20 times) I slipped my shoes back on and headed to my room.
I stopped at my closet to toss my shoes in and THAT'S WHEN I NOTICED!
I double checked to make sure that I had not left a lone brown flip-flop in the hall... SURELY I HAD NOT GONE AROUND TOWN IN MISMATCHED FLIP-FLOPS!
Sadly, the other brown flip-flop was found in his appropriate place in my closet! UGH!

When Brandon got home I slipped the mismatched pair on to show him what I had done... he laughed at me. I expected nothing less. I would have laughed at him had he done it!

Fast forward to Brandon's double headed at the ball field last night...
We get out of the car at the ball field after enjoying dinner at Chick-fil-A.
I look down and yell, "BRANDON I DID IT AGAIN!!!!"

Apparently, I FORGOT that I was wearing one black and one brown flip-flop and didn't change into a matching pair before leaving the house for dinner!!!

Hehehe. Your title made me laugh.

And oh yes, I am a big kick-off-the-shoes-in-the-middle-of-the-hallway girl. My baby has started doing it to.

How funny! It took me a minute to realize the color difference because I was concentrating on your nicely pedicured toes. :)

This is so funny! I've done this too, only in my case, it was black and navy blue together. Lovely.

Your feet are so pretty! I'm jealous because pregnancy has not been kind to my feet. In fact, they look really awful, and they somehow are a size bigger too!
