Hi...My name is Rachel and I am a shoe hoarder.

We have our house on the market to sell. It has been shown twice in the 4 months it's been on the market and the same realtor has shown it to the same couple.

They came out last Friday to view it and I had my realtor call them to get feedback.

My realtor-Hello Julie I wanted to get feedback on the showing for ____ Way.

Selling realtor-Hmm...what house is that...I showed 40 houses over the weekend.

My realtor-Wow 40 really...well you sure were busy.

Selling realtor-Can you give me some specifics on the house?

My realtor-It was the first house you showed on Friday after meeting your clients.

Selling realtor-Oh the house with all the shoes?

Um what is she trying to say? That I have too many shoes? Well at least they are organized neatly and by color in my walk in closet.

When I get home that day I tell Love to put her shoes in the closet. We have a walk in closet underneath our stairs in our home. When I opened the door I discovered...wow not only do I have a lot of shoes in my closet we have an army of shoes lined up in this closet too. Hubby's dress shoes, sneakers and the kids shoes. Geese...no wonder why she made that comment!

However I love shoes...I collect them and they are my thing, my best friend if you wish! So just because I have 90 pairs doesn't mean I won't miss the ones I had in a bag to be fixed by the shoe maker in the back of my car that are now sitting at Goodwill...

Me-Baby where is that bag of shoes that was in the back of my car?

Hubby-I took them to Goodwill for you.

Me-What???? You did what? No, No, No...those were not for Goodwill, I was taking them to the shoemaker to replace the heels.

Hubby-I'm sorry I didn't know.

Me-Next time just ask me "hey do you want me to take these to Goodwill"

Hubby-I am really sorry I didn't know. I will go get them for you. I am sure they have them for $3.

Me-Great...I will go to Goodwill and buy back my own shoes...and what $3 yeah right those bitches are probably $20/each.

Hubby-I will if you want me to (he is sooo sweet)

Me-No it's ok...but I'm gettin some new shoes now!

And the thing about it is...I don't even remember which ones were in there. I will though when I am looking for that "pair" to go with my outfit. I do however remember my Guess Leopard ones...they had a 4 inch heel and they were sooo HOT!

Bye Bye shoes...I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. But I am sure someone who picks you out will enjoy you and love you...but not as much as I did!

I do have my eyes on these...

Megan said...

I do like those shoes.. I have so many heels, rarely do I wear them. That was sweet of hubby to say he would go buy them back..but I'm with you, i'd just go buy new shoes!!

THE Stephanie said...

Lindsey said...

Love shoes! Great story. You make me laugh!

Amy said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello!

That's hilarious about the shoes! We JUST sold ours after 9 months on the market, so I know how you feel!

Amy said...

He is feeling a lot better.
I think..
He has not complained about it to me today.

And also, way to go with the shoes.
I buy to much clothes, i have never had a closet big enough

Amy said...

I love shoes too!! Way too many! I hope you get the new ones too!

Hope you sell your house too...

Fifi Flowers said...

LOTS of Shoes are ESSENTIAL!

The Wife O Riley said...

I too have way too many shoes for my husband's liking.

We have shoe funerals when a pair is too old and has been replaced with a younger pair. That way, there is no confusion. No funeral? Then the shoe stays.

Mrs. S said...

I found your blog via April Showers and I believe we are kindred shoe loving spirits! Seriously, I wonder can I convince my husband that I need those rochas??

Weeksie50 said...

lol- the house with to many shoes.. Girl, I just knew we were going to get to see a picture..of your lined up shoes..

Mc Allen said...

WHATTTTT??? Well, you handeled that with such grace (did you really just let it go w/ all that grace????) you are much more easygoing than I, unfortunately I would have acted ugly (not proud, just the truth :) Well, I just want to thank you for sharing what I'm certain wasnt an easy thing to talk about... Hugs, Leah

LazyCrazyMama said...

LOL!! Hilarious! That is an ungodly number of shoes! I think I have 4 pair max at any given time! ;) I can see how your realtor remembered which house was yours! LOL!!

Savvy Mode SG said...

hhaaa, i really like shoes too. i would have bet 20 dollars i have less than 40 pairs (after donating to goodwill quite a few times already) until i counted.... : (

enthalpymama said...

Those are some hot shoes. I happen to love snake skin myself. I don't have many pairs though. I'm kind of picky and have weird feet. I have a tendency to buy a pair and wear them every single day for years and years. Right now I wear a cool pair of boots pretty much every day.

...love Maegan said...

OH NO!!!! well, now you can just say you need new ones to replace the ones he took to goodwill!!!! lol funny story

Hipmomofboyz said...

I girl after my own heart..I just love you. I too and I shoe whore! I love them and they love me back. I have them all in shoe bags by color. If I find a pair I L-OV-E I have been know to buy 2 pairs of the same shoe just so I can have a back up pair. I can't even tell you how many I have in different colors. Shoes are a girls best friend!!!!! I love me some shoes!!!!

Tabi said...

I love looking at all those different shoes, and love dreaming about them BUT my feet and those kind of shoes that consist of any kind of heels is a big fat negative for me!!

I am cracking up laughing about the realtor thing!! I had to call my SIL to read her this post!! She is your twin in that area!

Kristy said...

LOL! I hoard shoes too...and purses, and jackets and umm...well anything that's cute...i love to shop and I have quite the collection of shoes!

~alison said...

omg!!! I would have been pissed! But he did seem sweet about it. I love some shoes too - but NOT 90 pair worth... : )

At least you get to buy news ones...that's the MOSt fun!

Liz said...

Happy Halloween Rachel!

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

I am a shoe hoarder too, and someone told me yesterday that after I have baby, none of my shoes will fit anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tell me this isn't true.

Leigh said...

LOL I accidentally posted the blog before I was dine ooops:) Its there now.

From another shoe hoarder;) I just actually returned a really nice pair, I spent to much and just couldn't justify it:( I am sure I will get over it next week and get another LOL>

Solei said...

LOL!!!
That's so funny... The house with all the shoes, lol. Hey, at least you stood out from the rest, right???

Good luck with the house sale girl, that must be tough. Maybe if you throw in a pair or 2 of shoes in the contract, that might speed up things, lol.
=0D

My home - My life said...

HappyHourSue said...

My best friend who's a realtor actually made me come to a house to show me that the owner had all her shoes in boxes with a POLAROID taped to the outside of each box of the shoe.

If you're not there yet, you're fine.

dolcechic said...

Too funny. One can never have enough shoes :)

gina said...

That is hilarious!! But I have to say - he seems like a sweetheart - trying to help you. Gotta love that. 90 pairs. Wow. And you will have to pack'em and move'em! A worthy sacrifice yes? Love that post. I love shoes too -i can go a little crazy over at zappos.com; my wishlist has about 100 on it.
