No, I don’t speak German. However, I was happy to discover the origin of the idea that “all good things come in threes.” Things like:

Three little kittens, The Three Stooges, and…huh?! Let me explain.
I’ve spent the greater part of two days in bed trying to kick this cold to the curb. I’ve had zero reserve energy for TV watching, message-board posting, or surfing the web. Don’t get me wrong, sleeping is my favorite hobby, but this was getting ridiculous!
There was only one thing that could get me out of bed today, and I totally forgot about it until Mr. Hot Tea came home from work. He greeted me with a bedside kiss and told me a box came in the mail. Bolting upright, I jumped out of bed to break into my newest wedding treasure.
Those of you who have accepted the challenge of finding your wedding shoes will likely agree—this is no easy task. Those who haven’t are probably wondering, “What’s the big deal? No one will see your shoes under your dress anyway.” Let me attempt to persuade you with something fellow fanatics affectionately refer to as shoe porn. Not only are they lovely, they make for a great photo op!

You’ll soon come to learn that I have fully exercised my right to change my bridal mind with all things wedding related, and shoes were no exception. My first pair were the charcoal gray Badgley Mischka “Frank.” I fell in love with the color to match Mr. HT’s wedding suit, and the fabric rosette complemented my wedding-gown sash.

Unfortunately, these shoes were sheer torture when it came to wearing them for my hour-long dress fittings. Though sad to admit it, my pretties had to be replaced. Good fortune struck when I came across the Miss America “Zuma” at DSW. Double score—they were tall enough to wear with my dress and were on clearance for $30. Mr. HT thought my feet looked sexy in them—added bonus!

I thought the search was over, but it was not to be so. Remember this?

I hope you will agree that these shoes are “the ones.” They have received Mr. HT’s stamp of “sexy feet” approval and, even better, they are comfortable! Without further ado, I’d like to introduce the pink-sequined peep toe from Ann Taylor.
Well, whaddya think? How have you experienced the phenomenon of threes in your own wedding planning?
