If the shoe fits...

Here I am at another boring receptionist job. This time, I'm at Keen. I can't really complain though since they GAVE me a brand new pair of shoes! A retail value of $90! One might suspect that perhaps I hinted at wanting to be the proud owner of a new pair of Keens but you're wrong. There was no such fishing. The lady that I'm covering for simply asked me what size shoe I wear and then excitedly announced that my size sevens are their sample size! She then escorted me over to the product department and they fitted my feet with a new pair of Chester Clogs.

Here's the catch - I don't like my new pair of shoes. I know, boo! Hiss! How can I be so ungrateful?! I'm not. I'm very grateful. I'm just anti-clog grateful . I think clogs make feet look fat. Since I couldn't very well say, "thanks for your generosity but do you have a pair that I like?" I've decided to sell them instead. (After my investigative work revealed that REI doesn't carry the Chester Clog model and I ruled out the option of taking advantage of Nordstom's world-renown customer service.) I'm looking forward to having the unexpected extra money in my pocket!


In other shoe news, my feet have been feeling very happy lately. I had an epiphany a few weeks ago that perhaps fuzzy slippers would make exceptional winter shoes. Target had some loafer slippers on sale for $15 a couple weeks ago so I decided to act on my novel idea. I was right! Fuzzy slippers really do make the BEST winter shoes! I bragged to Wyatt how my toes will never get cold again. His response, "It's called socks." I disagree! Foux fur is 100-times warmer, cozier and easier than socks! My only regret, why didn't I buy two pairs?!

I got a handmedown pair of clogs from mi madre. I've never liked them. But I've worn them twice in the past week...once to church even and once to work today (at the office). I'm not sure what is up, because I STILL don't like the clogs.

The funniest thing, whenever I wear them and my mother sees them she compliments me on my shoe choice (forgetting that they used to be hers). I simply tell her thank you and move on...but I STILL hate those things!!!

I would also like to know if you wear the slippers around town. Don't they get wet? Just wondering. Congrats on the extra cash!

1. Socks are the worst. I like you even more now that I know you agree.

2. Slippers are the best, you are a genius.

3. I am sad you didn't get a cool pair of keens, because there are some real real cool ones.

Too bad you aren't married to Brandon, when he worked at Nike all the sample shoes they had were only in size 7...lol! I say BOO!! because I am a 9 1/2. But on the other hand I agree about the Foux Fur slippers, I want a pair and everytime I see them, I end up getting something for a kiddo instead! Kids ruin everything! LOL!! JK :)

Bryce, Kayla, Maddy & Lukas mommy loves you!!
