You should see me right now. I'm walking around the house in this cute little t shirt type nightgown with my brand new Nike Shox Zipsister sneakers on. So sexy, I know. Don't you wish you could be a fly on the wall in my house right now? I'm super excited to have these new sneakers. For the past 8 years, the only sneakers that I have owned are the cheap $10 no name's you can find at Wal Mart. It's not that I couldn't ever afford a nice pair of sneakers, but to me, spending $50 - $60 or even more on a pair of sneakers was a waste of money. I would much rather have had a couple new outfits (bought on clearance of course) or some scrapbook supplies or a dinner out with my husband. It just wasn't my priority to get a nice pair of sneakers since quite frankly, I didn't wear them much. I haven't been much of an active person in the way of working out before. But all of that has changed now.
I've been exercising on a regular basis for several months now. And I've been doing so in my old raggedy pair of Wal Mart sneakers. I haven't minded. I have never complained. But my husband, being the shoe loving man that he is was bothered by my choice of shoes to exercise in. He made me promise that I would get a really good pair of name brand sneakers .
I don't think he trusted that I would actually do it, so he took me himself this past weekend to get a pair. We went to the Nike outlet. I think the only time I've ever been in that store was to buy him something several years ago for Christmas. It's just not my kinda store. I really wasn't too excited about how much I would have to pay for a pair of shoes there. But he promised me that I would be able to find a reasonably priced pair on sale. He was right. Yes you heard me. MY HUSBAND WAS RIGHT! Oh my, he's never gonna let me live that down! He was right and I was wrong. I'm not sure I've ever uttered those words in our 10 years of marriage, but there's a first (and last) time for everything, right? I found a super cute, luxuriously comfortable pair for $39.99. And I'm wearing them around the house right now to break them in before I go exercise tomorrow.
.....this is my most recent pair of sneakers with a crack in the bottom......
I actually like the new ones so much I'm thinking about buying a pink pair too. Look out, honey! You may have just created a sneaker snob! No more cheapo's for me! I'm lookin' mighty fine in my Nike's tonight!
