Every year since Mark and I have been together, he has purchased me a pair of shoes for my birthday. I'm not sure if I just started assuming I would be getting shoes, or if HE started assuming I would be getting shoes, but here we are 6 years later - and I got some new birthday shoes!
These shoes are pink and cozy and perfect for my coaching job and also for working out in. They are NO BULL trainers and I love them so much that I don't want to wear them because they might get dirty.
Last year it was the Nike Metcon 1's in black and white. Which I love. Because I do CrossFit.
The year before that it was Reebok Trainer 1's in gray and pink.
2013 was a pair of yellow Reebok Nano 2's.
2012 was some pink polka dot Nike's so that I would start working out because I had become a bit fluffy and apparently I needed new shoes to lose the fluff.
2011 were some sort of flats that I can't remember for the life of me if they were the black sparkly ones or the cheetah print ones and in 2010, the year we started dating, Mark bought me my first pair of Toms that I still wear all the time.
That's a long list of birthday shoes people. Crossing my fingers that this tradition lives on forever because its my favorite thing about September.
PS. I'm going to be 30 in a few weeks. THIRTY YEARS OLD.
