The End of Barefoot Days

I’m not a fan of shoes. Wait, I guess I should say I’m not a fan of wearing shoes. I mean don’t get me wrong, I enjoy shopping for and wearing cute shoes when I am out and about, but as soon as I get home, taking of my shoes is one of the first things I do. It is funny because Jon is the complete opposite. He puts on shoes as soon as he gets dressed in the morning and doesn’t take them off until he is getting ready for bed at night (well I guess he takes them off when he manages to squeeze in an afternoon nap).

So, I spend most of my day walking around the house shoeless, no big deal right? Well unfortunately when I walk around barefooted so much by the end of the day my heels are killing me. I get this dull ache in the center of my heel. I have had this for awhile, but it seemed to get worse when I was pregnant (probably due to the extra weight). Unfortunately, even though most of the weight is gone, my heels seem to still be pretty sensitive. The only way I can make them feel better is to do lots of calf stretches. I could prevent it by wearing shoes all day, but really that’s just not going to happen. So I decided to invest in the next best thing to being barefoot…slippers. Not just any slippers, flip flop slippers! To be honest I don’t even like wearing regular slippers any more than I like wearing shoes around the house.


Hopefully now I won’t have sore heels at the end of the day. :)

I recently ordered those same slippers in purple and had my family bring them down to me. They are very comfortable and I wear them around the house all day!
