I am so glad that today is Friday. I long for the weekends in the summer because competition season is over, we don’t have to travel anywhere, and our girls don’t have practices on the weekends in the summer. That means we don’t have any obligations and can do whatever we want to do. We can stay home all weekend and do absolutely nothing, work on projects that need to be done, go shopping, watch a movie, or even plan a little mini vacation. Our weekends are so jammed full of things during the school year that we never really feel like we have days off or can get a lot of things done. That is why summer weekends are the best!
Today I want to talk about one of my favorite things, but it is a thing I get picked on for loving all the time. I know that it won’t be a popular thing, but I use mine every single day. I will start by saying that I do not like to walk around barefooted. I never have. I think that part of that comes from having hyperhidrosis where my feet sweat extremely bad. My mom says that even when I was a baby, I would have little droplets of sweat on my feet all the time. It is something that I have lived with my whole life. Now, though, it is well controlled thanks to my migraine medicine. Drying me out is one of the side effects of my medicine and the one side effect in the world that would make me happy. Anyway, I guess I didn’t like going barefooted because my feet were always sopping wet and now it is just a habit. That means that I either always have on a pair of socks, or I have on one of my favorite things…my bedroom slippers. That’s right, I wear bedroom slippers all the time! If I am at home, I have them on at all times. I very rarely will walk around without them unless I have socks on, even in my own house. As I am getting out of the bed in the mornings, I step right into them. When I get out of the shower, I immediately step into them. I wear them all the time. Whenever I am traveling, I pack them in my suitcase. I certainly would never walk around in a hotel without them because that is just gross to me. Because I wear them so much, I have to replace them frequently (about every 2 years) because they just get worn out easily. I do wash them a lot too, especially after we have traveled, which I think speeds up the wear and tear. Anyway, I have purchased a million different bedroom slippers over the years and have found some that I love and some that I just didn’t like. I prefer the ones that you just step into like a slide or clog versus ones that fit like a shoe with a back to them. Those make my feet too hot and cause me to sweat even more. The ones with memory foam soles are my favorites, but I also like the ones that just have an extra padded sole. Over the years, I have found that my favorite brand is Dearfoams. Now, these are not about style and cuteness. They are 100% about function and comfort. I admit it…I just love bedroom slippers. I know this won’t be a popular opinion, but if you do like them, here are some of my favorites.
Dearfoams Quilted Terry (Amazon) These are the ones I am currently wearing.
Dearfoams Memory Foam (Amazon)
Dearfoams Chenille Clog (Amazon)
Dearfoams Chunky Knit (Amazon) I don’t really love these because they are too hot for me, but they are super comfortable.
As you can see, they aren’t the most attractive things in the world, but they are super comfortable and no one ever really sees them except my family. I am totally ok with the fact that my love for bedroom slippers is not stylish or something that most people would agree with. They are a necessity for me and I love them! We are actually a bedroom slipper loving family. Everyone in my family wears them, even my daughters. Try them out. Maybe you will become a bedroom slipper family too!
