So. When Jed came home from the mission, he brought with him 1 suit and 1 pair of shoes. The suit is a charcoal wool, and the sleeves come about 3 inches too high (short). The shoes were in bad shape, as most mission shoes are. Sadly, with the expenses of the wedding, we couldn't buy him any new church clothes... quite yet.
In April, Jed went to SLC for conference, and saw his BEST mission friend (and now life friend), Elder Brock (or Brockli, as I like to call him). Brock's shoes were so torn up, that they were bothering brock! So what did my husband do? He took the torn-up-but-not-as-bad-as-brock's-shoes shoes right off of his feet and traded with Brockli. He did.
Since then, Jed has been wearing those very shoes, which have virutally no sole.. or form, for that matter. A new suit and shoes have been a priority for awhile, but we just haven't had the extra cash!
But we've been saving, and a couple of weeks ago... during Oprah's payless thing, we got Jed some nice church shoes for $10!
and Friday night....
brand spankin' new.
And it looks SOOOOO good on him! I will try to sneak some pictures once we pick it up. Sigh... I married a STUD!
P.S. Did i mention it has a vest? AND we got it for $150 off!
