The Final Straw.

Meet my favorite socks in the whole world.

I pined for them over one year ago, but they were $8.99 at
TJ Maxx and I just couldn't see spending that kind of cash on a pair of socks.

But they were so cushy.
And they were sort of clashy.
So I continued to pine.

Then I dropped a strong hint to Cory, prior to Christmas '07.
And Cory came through. I have to give him props, because I didn't personally point them out. I just told him they were pink and purple knee socks and Poof!

Aren't they lovely?
Don't they look warm?

I hope you know I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I look forward to wearing them and that they make any dreary weekday a little brighter and cozier.
I throw them in every load of laundry so that I can wear them as much as possible.


Oh dear.

Uh-oh. Winter must officially end immediately.
The tribe has spoken.

And ps - For anyone who wondered, that is not my extremely dry/scaly/nasty heel. I hired a foot model for this post and, you know, times are tough. Pedicures are an unnecessary expense, even for a foot model.


  1. What a nut! The socks are adorable but I'm sorry, I was reminded of Jerry when I saw the holes in the socks. Tell Cory you are due for a new pair.

    Love you,

  3. LOL, you are a crack up Shan! I love that you can see your toes through the tip of your socks :) And I have heard those socks you have right there sell for big bucks on ebay...and that's no joke. Pretty gross, but true. I've heard of them going for 50 bucks. Maybe you should try to sell!


  4. it's okay, you can tell everyone that i was your foot model. or, at least it could have been me. my heels look just about like that.
    :) you are not alone. i am kinda regretting that i've admitted it.

  5. shannan, are you a sock fanatic like me?! i love it...looks like the toes of all my fave's! i hate darning socks, but i have stitched up quite a few of my favorites just to hold out a little longer! now, i KNOW you need to pick up knitting! i am going to try making socks very soon because they say once you wear hand knit socks, you won't want to wear anything else (and who can afford $20 pairs of cute wool socks?).

  6. Way to go, girl! Knee socks are not easy for all of us to pull off. I'm wearing the pair I swooned over at Aerie this fall. I got them home, and, shucks, they didn't look anything like they did on that 80lb teenage model in the store--More like two sausages stuffed into fishnet.
