A Parable.

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Sarah. Sarah was pretty, smart and had a constant case of the skinnies. Seriously, this girl was awesome. Sarah had a very nice fiance named S who was lovely and strong and funny and nice to be around. He was pretty awesome too.

One day, S was playing kickball and heard a pop in his knee (followed by pain, swelling, etc.). When he finally got it looked at MONTHS later, he realized he was going to need knee surgery.

** cue the sads **

S scheduled his surgery for 2 days after Sarah's birthday and a couple of weeks before Christmas. This was a perfect idea in theory (nobody's office is nearly as busy during Christmas). In practice, not so much.

Sarah tried to take the best care of S that she could. She even made toast for him every single morning. She HATES toast. She helped him shower and change his clothes (and that wasn't even the worst of it). When S decided to go back to work, Sarah drove him to work and picked him up in the afternoons.

One day, S could drive again and he didn't need Sarah to take him around. Sarah was okay with this. She got to hang out with S and not take care of him all the time. They were happy.

Then, out of nowhere, S came home with a very cute shopping bag in his hands. It was a surprise for Sarah.

It was a thank you gift for being so pretty and helpful. And it came in the form of heels with red soles.

And they lived happily ever after.







Moral of the story: do to others what you would like to be done to you and then you get Louboutins. The end.

I am seething with jealousy. Although if I did take care of Hubs he would probably get me somethign fugly, like a muppet again.

Kristen said...

Oh you lucky duck! I need to find myself a man like yours!!! Haha The thought of any man shoe shopping for his significant other is pretty funny =)

Heather said...

OMG so jealous. I would love a pair of CL black heels.

Enjoy!!

SG said...

WTF?! Last year I took care of my fiance for 3 weeks while he was house bound after neck surgery and I didn't get any Loubies! *pout face*

However I did get an engagement ring a month and a half later so I guess I can't complain too much!

S is a good man!

jules said...

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. No joking, my boyfriend has said he may need to propose with shoes because I'd probably be more excited than with jewelry. ..is that sad? I think not.

Lucky biatch

Dollface said...

I love this, hahaha.... that is a great thank you gift!! wear them proud while youre making toast :) xxxooo

Ashley Paige said...

Jeal. Bia. Maybe my Hubs needs to start playing kickball. Or maybe I'll just trip him while he's walking down the stairs one day. I told him, by my 30th birthday, I'm determined to own me some red-soled shoes.. He said he's sure I could find a pair at Payless. I'm thinking, some CL's may be the perfect "push present" come August. You know, I could always wear them while I'm breast feeding or something. (Haha. I kid, I kid)..

Jennifer said...

Totally jealous. Awesome story.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

This is amazing. And to think I was jealous about MDOG's hubby giving her Twizzlers when she messed up dinner!! (Well I'm still jealous about that but I think the two red items together would be the ultimate). You are a very lucky woman Sarah! ox

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Wow! Tres impressed with your hubby. Apparently mine is ungrateful for all I do for him...I'm lucky to get a thank you!

Mrs. Bear said...

OMFG!

Becki Jacket said...

The best love story I've ever heard. This should be a movie.

Miss E said...

Is it acceptable to break my Hubs' knee to see if this parable will apply to my life? I want Loubs!

Love them, you lucky girl!

Karls said...

Yeeeeewwwww! SO worth it! And soooo jealous!

MODG said...

Domestic Goddess said...

hello gorgeous! what a nice guy!!!

Kristin said...

That's all I gotta do to score some Loubs??? That's it. I'm taking the hubs' knee out!

Rach said...

I am in big love with Ashley Paige's idea of Loubs as a push present. I would squeeze just about anything out of my v for a pair.

...that sounds squickier than I mean it to.

Don't care. I would.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I need a husband to be for this reason.

LOUBIES MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER. Are you a changed woman?!

brit @ landlocked bride said...

I have a serious case of the jealousies.

Now if only the Pilot would know where to buy Loubs.

Midtown Girl said...

damn that's a fabulous pair of Loubies!! Red soles for the SOUL!!

Shandal said...

Lucky girl! Sounds like you totally deserved them though!!!

Oughta Say No said...

Now normally I would say, if a man will buy you Loubies MARRY HIM! But that's the plan already.

AWESOME!

hotpants™ said...

How do I get my husband to recognize the word Louboutins?

Enjoy those pretty shoes!

Maggie said...

Oh, he is a keeper.

Amanda said...

that's AMAZING.

celebrittany said...

aww. i wish i could go back to not-married just for a sec and do great things for Boy to maybe get some Loubs. marriage=sharing$$=noLoubsformenow. i'll have to settle for love.. i guess.

Milltini said...

That is such a happy story. I love happy endings...er....well, the kinds with red soles that is.

Mrs. Sitcom said...

Oh, SNAP! I'm off to kick Mr. Perfect in the knee caps, cuz I GOTS to get me some of them Loubs! (PS Congratulations. PPS I'm jealous. The end.)
