With less than four weeks to go in my pregnancy, the biggest issue I am dealing with is swelling. Lots and lots of swelling.
We had family photos taken Thanksgiving weekend and y’all, I literally tried FIVE pairs of boots on and NONE of them fit me. Not. One. Pair.
I wanted to cry. I managed to squeeze into a cute pair of booties and call it a day, but taking them off an hour later was not a pretty sight.
But, I have found a pair of shoes that fits.
I’ve been wearing slippers. All the time.
As in, I wore them Angie’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. I wore them to work last week and to church yesterday. And I am wearing them right now in the coffee shop where I’m writing.
Let me back up. Dearfoams offered to send me a few pairs of their slippers to try. Since I have always loved slippers and our floors are cold in the winter, I happily said yes. They also sent a pair to Matthew.
I figured I would love them – afterall, who doesn’t love a new pair of slippers? But I didn’t anticipate that they would literally bring me comfort and joy in these last weeks of pregnancy.
I am obsessed with them, especially these. They are my favorite things this Christmas season and I want everyone I know to get a pair. Matthew isn’t passionate about things like slippers, but I have caught him wearing his slippers for quick errands like taking Elias to school and going to Starbucks. His totally look like TOMS and they are wool, sturdy and pretty awesome.
Little miss Adeline has even been known to try them on. Of course, she loves the sparkles.
Even if you aren’t pregnant and your feet DO fit into the shoes in your closet, I would recommend asking for a pair of Dearfoam slippers this Christmas. You’ll be so happy you did!
