Yes, the photo below is of MOST of my shoes! I did not photograph the 23 pairs I am giving away, my Uggs, sneakers, boots, or flip-flops. I really did not even realize my problem was that bad. I paid my little cousin to come over and help me organize my shoes and she could not get over the sheer number of shoes. Since we were taking photos for the shoe boxes, she made me pose for a picture. I posted the photo onto my Facebook fan page and you ladies went wild! I am so happy that you can now say "I'm not that bad...that Erica Bohrer has over 100 pairs of shoes." Yes, I know I have a problem and I am OK with it. I do have to say, now that they are organized, I am less likely to buy two of the same type of shoe. I said LESS likely. Acceptance is the first step for realizing that you have a problem, right? *Target has a great deal on bright lid shoe box sized bins or you can get ones like these from Big Lots.
PS-I am so embarrassed that I am not wearing make-up in this picture.
My shoes in their "Shoe Closet." I need to get my dad to add some shelves :)
Puppies!!!I signed up to be a foster mom to Lab puppies for the Save-a-Lab rescue group. My friend Donna Glynn had fostered puppies for them and it seemed like a great thing to do. As many of you know I am really into animal rescue. In the past, I fostered a kitten and a duckling. I have the summer off and through TpT and my lovely customers, I have the money to spend on their vet bills. *As a foster you normally don't have to pay for the vet bills, but I volunteered to pay their's to help the rescue group out.
Welcome Stella and Phoebe! They are two adorable, smart, and sweet lab mix puppies. I will foster them until they get adopted and it looks like that will be happening soon. I am so attached already, but they are a ton of work! I don't think I could keep this up when school starts (Sept. 4th). Right now, I have two dogs, two puppies, two cats, and two guinea pigs living in my barn...I mean house. If you are interested in fostering, adopting, or donating, please click here to check out Save-a-Lab or go to their fan page here. They are East Coast based.

Last year, my school did the big switch to Common Core Math and this year we are focusing on literacy. I already have Anna and Deanna's Common Core packets and I thought this would go well. So, I snagged this packet by Rachelle, the only person I allow to make fun of me publicly for my love of cats! Love Ya, Rachelle!!!
So now you see that my shopping problem knows no boundaries! Now, who wants to help me find a large classroom Book Nook carpet in black or bright colors? You know I have to match!
