Glam Meets Nike

My Sunday was quite eventful some would say...I officially succumbed and purchased my first pair of Nike's. I held off for 4 weeks but wearing a cheap Old Navy pair just wasn't cutting the mustard anymore, friends. I never thought I'd wear a t-shirt and shorts as I shared with you in a previous post...but I really NEVER in a million years thought this day would come. I am now a wearer of tennis shoes, expensive tennis shoes. What has my world come to??

Now both of you should know.. two of my fav gal pals Alana and Abby came with me (aka the triple A sandwich). We went shopping Friday for some maroon jewelry for the game yesterday and let me just say our shopping trip lasted 25 minutes IF that. They walked in, looked, didn't see anything, walked right back out. For those that know me, I like to soak in the shopping and make it last as long as possible. That. Doesn't. Happen. With. Them. Plus we found nothing. Now today, they were in their element completely, me on the other hand, no.

I decided yesterday when I knew tennis shoes were a must that I was going Nike all the way. I like the way they slim my feet and make tennis shoes look as chic as possible, is that even possible? Any other Nike fans in the audience? My feet are long so if I can make them look smaller I'll do just that.

We entered the glorious DSW and the reason I chose that store is because my sweet momma gave me a $20 off coupon. Yes you read that correctly. ;) She's basically the greatest! LOVE her. We walked the aisles waiting for something to catch my eye. I'm immediately drawn to teal. That's just me. I see a gray shoe with some teal detailing and it's the first one I put on. I slipped the shoe on and it was like walking on a cloud. What have I been missing all my life??? (WHAT JUST CAME OUT OF MY MOUTH??) Did I just say I liked tennis shoes? No I said comfortable just to clarify. ;) I tried a few other pairs on but nothing was comparing. The final pick was between a hot pink and the grey ones. The grey and teal ones were the ONES. It didn't take as long as I thought. In and out in 35 minutes. Shortest shopping trip for Abi Albers. Ever.

My sidekicks took tons of pics because they couldn't believe this day had come, in their words, "It was a proud mom moment. We've taught you so much."

I own 3 pairs of white ankle socks because I don't wear tennis shoes so those were added to the purchase pile.

They took a picture of me checking out, why? Because it adds to the experience I guess..
$76 was the final total-- for a pair of Nike shoes and socks. A STEAL! Putting this one in the books.
My sidekicks are in purple and teal. (aka the triple A team)
Triple A's (aka the dream shopping team)
