  1. But I like my Sunday shoes! They are cute Jessica Simpson scrunched ankle boots!! Maybe Kenny Loggins (and Blake Shelton) won’t mind if I keep them on when I dance…

    Of course then my feet wouldn’t be loose so…
    (you have really confused my day)

  2. I’m sorry…but you have to ‘kick off your sunday shoes’……..it’s the law. FACT.
