Christmas Slippers

Why do so many people ask for and get slippers for Christmas?  Both my husband and son asked for  slippers this year -  that is a  first.   Neither of them have ever worn them before.   My daughter Ali, on the other hand,  has  always liked slippers.   She has a  pair like these Minnetonka Sheepskin Mule Slippers (available at Shoebuy.com, $59.95),  but not only wears them in the house, but as regular shoes, too.   As for me, I personally I do not own a pair, nor do I want any.

As for tennis shoes, I buy maybe one pair every 5 years or so.  When we were Christmas shopping, I came accross these Nike Air Tri-D Run II on sale at Scheels. I thought about it a lot, and I think the gray with a touch of pink looks good (it's technically Metallic Zinc/Coral Chalk). I plan to break them in tonight while playing shuffle … [Read more...]
