I’ve done it.

I’ve finally done it.

I’ve crossed over to the dark side. I’ve become a person I never thought I would be. I’ve done something I swore I would never do. Does this make me a hypocrite? Does it mean I’m getting really freaking old?

Two years ago I was desperately trying to convince my sister that she was crazy. I stared at people with disdain and wondered what on earth they were thinking.

Now I’ve become that crazy person.

I really can’t believe I finally broke down and did it.

 

I bought Uggs.

 

Yes… UGGLIES. I bought some. Why? What does it say about me that I used to snarl at people wearing these horrendous boots, thinking they were actually fashionable. Ok so maybe I just want my little tootsies warm when I run across to the store during winter and maybe my only other alternatives are flip flops and tennis shoes which require me tying them up every time I put them on and maybe I don’t want to tie up tennis shoes every time I want to run across to the store when it’s cold out. Maybe I just want to slip something warm on to my feet very quickly.

Or maybe those are all excuses and I still haven’t figured out why I actually wanted some. Even my sister said “wow I can’t believe you spent money on those.”

What’s next? Will I be sporting some bright green Crocs in 2 years? God I hope not.

  1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I love this. No judgments from this side though – they had fur lined crocs at the Royal Easter Show for $10 on the closing day and I TOTALLY looked to see if they had any in my size. They didn’t and I won’t lie – I was a little disappointed. HAHA! I HATE crocs too! Oh well. Sometimes warm feet and convenience are more important than fashion. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I totally know how horrible you feel about this purchase. I, too, have maligned many an Ugg-wearer…until my husband bought me a pair while we were in the Blue Mountains. Now I live in them when I’m at home (I have drawn the line at wearing them in public, only cause they are actually not comfy when doing a lot of walking). But here’s the thing: in Oz, they make sense. Since the weather is both summer AND winter during winter, and there is a major lack of central heating and cooling, they are the equivalent of Australian bedroom slippers!

  3. Don’t worry, Tracy and I have both bought some recently as well!! How else do Aussies keep their feet warm in the winter when no frickin’ apts here have heat?!?!

  4. Congratulations….and easy on the “old” comments ๐Ÿ™‚ i have had Uggs since 7th grade (and back then, they were made in Australia instead of China) i just can’t believe it’s taken you this long to cave…and let’s not compare Uggs to Crocs! Have you seen the group on Facebook called…”I don’t care how comfortable Crocs are, you still look like a dumb A$$?” I cracked up…at least Uggs look comfortable unlike bright colored rubber shoes w/ holes.
    Hope you are having fun in Cali with your family. Oh, and I did tell Mr. Parsek you said hi by they way : )

  5. oh NOOOOOOOO! Just don’t wear them with a mini skirt ok? ๐Ÿ™‚ Just as long as you stay AWAY from the crocs – OMG those are so much worse!

    By the way – I know my Sister’s Keeper the movie comes out here soon cause I am going to see it with my sister-in-law on the 22nd July!!!

    1. OMG Monique… don’t worry… no uggs and miniskirts here. That’s one of the horrible fashion statements that made me hate uggs in the first place (mostly because I hated the people who wore them!!)

      Thanks for the info on the movie ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I admit to owning a light tan coloured pair of crocs. But I only wear them around the house and yard. They are so easy, and surprisingly comfy. I have yet to venture into Uggs. They do look comfy and warmn. I have this phobia about putting my feet into shoes where I can’t see the bottom. Living in Australia, you NEVER know what could be hiding in there i.e. spiders. So, yeah, maybe I will stick to my shoes with holes. At least I can see the damn spiders then! lol Enjoy your new purchase! ๐Ÿ˜‰
