'Tis the season for slippers!

The Christmas after Abby was born, a friend gave me these lovely authentic bunny slippers. I heart these slippers and have for nigh upon 12 years now. They went with me to the hospital when I had Sam and again when I had Kady. However, Mom wouldn't allow me to wear them when I had Kady because, as she said, "they're just embarrassing." Not because they're bunnies but because they were so worn the heck out. And that was nearly 7 years ago! The worn-out-edness of them is even more pronounced today. But I still heart them.

(Yes, my toenails are painted black.)

However, being all grownup what with the fact that I watched a Vice-presidential debate for the first time last night, I also know that the bunnies....they will not last forever. There will come a time when they have to hop off to the big bunny slipper field in the sky to be chased by little stuffed dogs that have since moved on.

So a few weeks ago I bought these:

Because if I am watching political debates and discussing the correct pronunciation of the word "nuclear" with my husband very heatedly, the least I can do is wear these. You keep things in the proper perspective.

(NOTE: I got the sock monkey slippers at Target.)

Right before my DS was born, I bought myself a pair of AHHWWWWSOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEE "Gossamer-The Big Red Monster from the Looney Tunes cartoons" slippers. Oh,they so rocked in their large, uber-red awesomeness. And then I tried to wear them. While holding the baby. Tripped and dang near dropped him.

Now, 8 years and one DD later, I can't wear them because said DD's pregnancy made my feet too big to fit them.

Sniff. I loved them so.....

I would love to know where you got such nice adult slippers. I need a pair and those look right.

Diva, your slippers are truly a force to be reckoned with.

How funny that I look at the picture of the bunny slippers, and all I can see are your toes sticking out, making the bunnies look either drunk or like someone/thing just clocked them!

I'm warped I tell ya, warped.

I do like the sock monkeys, though!

OMG! LOL, my little sister would LOVE those sock monkey slippers! She is due in December with her first child and she is decorating just about everything in sock monkeys!! Looks like I might have to go to Target to pick her up a little gift!

We....the people
