Monday Morning Question...



Good morning and happy Monday all!  I am hosting Krissy's Monday Morning Question because she is still in Hershey.  Krissy and John are hanging in there and John is feeling a little bit better everyday.  Hopefully they will be home pretty soon!  Krissy and John just celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary yesterday and I wanted to congratulate them... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, my dear hearts and my other parts!!  I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!  I am so glad you two are married and have each other!  I also wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and support.  It means so much!! xox


Monday Morning Question

How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Are you a shoe shop-aholic?  Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?

My answer:  I guess I have about 15 or 16 pairs of shoes.   I really only like to wear about four pairs of them.   I hate shopping for shoes because I have triple E wide feet and I can never find shoes that fit.  A lot of times I buy a pair of shoes and then find they hurt my feet a day or two later.  That is why I only like a few of my pairs of shoes.  I don't throw them away, though, as I think that I can wear them for a few hours or for a certain outfit.  I don't really have a favorite pair of shoes.  I really like to go barefoot.  My feet are my favorite pair of shoes!

  1. Congratulations to Krissy and John. My how that year has flown. I am glad that John is getting better and better.  I own five pairs of shoes.  I hate shoes and am always barefoot summer and winter unless I have to go out.  So I have one pair of trainers or sneakers, two pairs of sandals and two pairs of proper shoes.

  3. I have many pairs of shoes...but most of the time one is somewhere and the other one is missing in action.  I mostly wear my SAS shoes black to work.  Around the house I wear sandles or bare feet.  Rick gets mad at me because I got outside with socks on my feet.  LOL Barbara

  4. I love shoes. I have about six pairs right now and a few pairs of boots too. But, most sit in the closet and I wear clogs all of the time that aren't very attractive because I just like comfort. My favorite type of shoe has always been the wedge. I can feel tall and not wobble on high heels. : )

    Happy Anniversary to Krissy and John!

  5. Happy Anniversary Krissy & John!  Sending much love, happiness and prayers to them.

    As for shoes, I might have about 8 but, I only wear a couple and they are the clog style as they are comfortable.  In the house, I'm always barefoot or with socks only.  Like  you I have hard to fit feet and most shoes end up being uncomfortable.  So, like Angela I wear the ugly duckling clogs that are pure comfort. :-)

    How's the grandbaby coming along?  Less than 2 weeks until I get to see mine!

  7. hum shoes, I have maybe 10 pair, I really don't like shoes and have a lot of problem buying ones that don't hurt my feet or my back if it wasn't for that I would have a lot more shoes. I prefer to be barefoot but the last couple yrs my feet get cold so easy that I usually have to wear houseslippers. I wear tennis shoes or clogs when I am outside so I guess they would be my favorites.

  8. I have about 15 pair of sandals.  They're my favorite type of shoe.  I have maybe 10 other pair of other types of shoes like sneakers or dress shoes.

  10. I have quite a few pairs of shoes too. But....only a few that really feel good.  I just returned a pair of Birkenstock's because I wore them around the house for a few days and thought I was going to die.   My feet look normal but they are not.  My arch is not where the arch in most shoes is located..thus the problem.  I even got very expensive orthotics from a podiatrist and can't use them. I have never been able to wear tennis type shoes. I need to live in the South Seas, so I can go barefoot all the time.   Linda in sunny but cool Washington

    I think I might have as many as 10 pairs, but I only wear 4 of them most of the time.  My favorites are my fuzzy brown slip-ons -a cheap imitation of UGG step-ins and my beat-up sandals.  I hope neither of them wears out.  Blessings, Penny http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

  13. Well I am not the average woman when it comes to shoes.  I have about 8 pairs of shoes.  My favorite shoes are two pair of two pair of Soft Walk Shoes.  They are very ugly and they look like old women shoes.  They feel so good though.  I have a black pair and a brown pair and I put them on with basically everything.  It keeps the feet from swelling.

  15. happy anniversary to krissy & john!  

    had to answer the ??? bc my smart friend just told me the other day that, on average, american women have 50 pairs of shoes.  ((sorta have to with the price of gas nowadays ("these boots are made for walkin")!!))  

    i, myself, have 27 pair, including 2 pair of golf shoes, a pair of indoor soccer shoes, and a pair of old combat boots.  my favorite NIKE shox, worn almost daily, round out the collection.  

    i would much rather be barefoot!

  17. I am counting four pairs of shoes that I own, no, five.  I am not a shoe shopaholic.  I like to get a few really high quality pair ones and wear those, instead of a bunch of inexpensive shoes.  I guess my favorite pair would have to be my most worn pair, even though they are not the most dressy, LOL.  My sneakers, b/c they are the most comfortable.  Nice leather sneakers!

  21. I worked in shoe repair so I learned a great deal about the construction of shoes.    I have a pair that is comfortable that would have been thrown away were it not for Shoe Goop glue that has kept them going.     I have stretched shoes, replaced heels, replaced soles, and polished and used an old tredle sewing machine for leather.     Visit your local shoe repair before you throw away those comfortable shoes.    mark
