First of all, on Christmas Eve, our neighbour dropped off some handmade gifts for our family. I got these slippers. They are exactly like the ones my grandma used to knit for me when I was little. I LOVE these ones, especially the fact that they have pompoms!
Let me just add that I definitely don't have a career in foot photography. I took about fifty pictures and these are the only two I'm willing to post. And that's only because I wanted to show off my awesome footwear in action.
As I may have already mentioned, "Dave" bought me some new nail polish for my stocking. "Dave" is in quotes because, about five days before Christmas I realized that Dave and I needed things for our stockings and then we each bought our our own presents. At least we each ended up with what we wanted :)
And then I got an awesome gift from a friend at church and it included some sparkly nail polish which I quickly added to my pedicure. I LOVE sparkly toes!!! Although you can't really see them in this picture. Did I mention that whole foot photography not being a viable career thing?
My parents give us a Christmas cheque instead of gifts. I didn't know what I wanted to spend my money on and then I walked into a store which was having an AMAZING sale on footwear. I got a new pair of running shoes AND a new pair of waterproof sandals and still have half my Christmas money left to spend. Yay for sales! And yay for new running shoes. I think my former pair was more than fifteen years old. That either says a lot for the quality of those shoes or how little I used them. I'm going with the first option :)
The best thing about my new running shoes (besides the colours, which might have been why they were on sale! Ha ha ha!) is that they are super-light so I will probably be able to run forever because it feels like I'm not wearing anything on my feet. I'll let you know if they work that way...
