What have I done?  I hadn't gotten my return plane ticket yet for a variety of reasons.  The hubby and I were talking today and I was looking at prices.  For the next week they are a decent price, and then they get really high over Christmas.  January 5th had the lowest price, and the hubby said, "why don't you just stay?  Take advantage of being able to hang out with your family for an extended period."  So, I now have a return ticket for January 5th.  On the one hand, yay!  Family time!  Niece snuggles!  On the other hand, massive guilt for leaving my husband alone for Thanksgiving, Christmas, AND New Year's.  I know it was his idea, and believe me, he wouldn't have said it if he didn't mean it, but I've been having really mixed emotions all day.  And I miss my puppies.  Oh, and I have no Christmas socks or earrings because I didn't pack any.  And Pedro only has his tux and his Thanksgiving shirt, so I can't dress him appropriately for the season.  (Also, yes, I know those last 2 things are completely inane, but this is how my brain works when I get weirded out and feel guilty about something)  I'm feeling very selfish at the moment.

OK, moving on.  Did you know that today was National Brownie Day?  Me either, until a few minutes ago, but I made brownies today!  It was cold in the house today and we had a box of brownie mix in the cupboard, so I figured I'd use the oven, warm up the house, and get chocolate all in one go.  Tonight's shoes are inspired by this happy coincidence:

I like them all.  Brownies are yummy.  I still have guilt.  Good night.

I've been doing Christmas puzzles on my Kindle this week.  I'm terrible at actual puzzles, but quite enjoy them on my kindle.  Each puzzle can be done with 35, 70, 140, 280, or 630 pieces.  I usually do the first three.  I've done one puzzle with the 280 pieces, and I haven't even attempted the 630 pieces because the screen on my kindle is tiny and I don't even think I could see the pieces.  Tonight's shoes are puzzle inspired.

I like all of these, although the first one is my favorite.  I think I could maybe do the last one. It's only 500 pieces.  Maybe.  Did I mention that I'm terrible at real puzzles?

These last 3 are all from Zazzle.  CHRISTMAS shoe puzzles!  I think Zazzle is my spirit animal.  If only I could actually afford to shop there.

I keep thinking of this quote as I'm puzzling.  Thankfully my puzzler has yet to get sore from the puzzling.  Probably because I skip the 630 piece option.

The Brother works late on Tuesday, which means that Double A and The Bean stay until 9:00.  After dinner the parents and Double A watched NCIS while The Bean and I snuggled up in bed and watched Netflix on my kindle. (Oh, Double A also made cookies.  Yummy chocolate cookies.  Cookies we call Cow Patties because they look like a cow flew over.  She's awesome, as her name implies.)  We ended up watching The Legend of Frosty the Snowman, which is a Frosty movie from 2005 that neither of us had ever seen.  It was weird.  It had some cute moments, but it was really odd.  We both prefer the earlier Frostier movies.  But the snuggling and hanging out time was awesome, so I will not complain.  Tonight's shoes are Frosty-inspired:

I wasn't searching specifically for Zazzle, but these are all Zazzle, and are the first 3 pairs I found.  I like them. 

That snowman is just so happy!

I love these.  I know you are shocked.

Hypothetical question:  Would it be wrong to leave a spouse to stay in Montana and snuggle with nieces?  Asking for a friend... 😁😋

White Christmas

Tonight was one of my favorite times of the year:  The annual rewatching of White Christmas.  This year was a family affair as Mom, Dad, the brother, The Bean, and Double A all watched it with me.  It was just as fabulous as always, and tonight's shoes are in honor of it and of my desire to have my life be like a 1950s musical (which is what I typed in for tonight's search):

I think these are fuchsia.  I love a t-strap.

I'm sure there would be a suitably patriotic number (and outfits) to go with these.

These would not be good for dancing, but they would be awesome for standing around singing in a fabulous outfit.

These are a bit strange, and would fall off of my heels, so no dancing, but again:  singing in a fabulous outfit.

Sigh...good day.  I love White Christmas.  I would like to live in it, please.

It snowed today!  Unfortunately, it was also in the high 30s most of the day, so it mostly melted and was muddy.  The falling snow was pretty, but the mud was less so.  It's supposed to be much colder tomorrow (low of 3!) so if it snows more it will stick and be pretty.  In the meantime, tonight's shoes are inspired by the gloomy gray clouds that spent the day.

I really like these.  I love the criss-crossy straps.

These are booty adjacent, and yet I like them a lot on.

Very simple, but classy.

More straps!  You know I love Mary Janes.

I wish I could see these from the sides, because the fronts are very interesting.  I might like them.

OK, so you might think gray shoes are kind of boring, but not ALL shoes need to be wild and crazy, and I rather liked this selection.  You don't have to like them, but it's my blog, so I get to choose. 😋😝

Snowflake Slippers

I'm really tired and it's supposed to snow this weekend, so here are some snowflake slippers:

Short and sweet tonight. Night, all.

So, I finally (sadly) found something for which I couldn't find corresponding shoes.  Tonight I saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is the new movie set in the world of Harry Potter.  It was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it, but I couldn't find any shoes.  Apparently the fan-created shoes aren't out there yet, which is a bummer, because you know how I love a good theme.  Instead of shoes from the movie, tonight's shoes are Hufflepuff, which I've done before, but the main character in the movie, Newt Scamander, is a Hufflepuff, so that's as close to a theme as I'm going to get.  Plus, Double A and The Bean did the Sorting Hat quiz on Pottermore and were both sorted into Hufflepuff, so they should enjoy these shoes:

These are adorable and the nieces would love them.  They should make themselves some.

I love the ties.  I don't know why I would find shoes with ties so adorable, but I do.

Love the pattern.

I'm not sure you can read the text, but it talks about the characteristics of someone in Hufflepuff: they are just and loyal, and all kinds of good stuff.

Wow.  And not really in a good way.

Fleep flops!

I have a hormone headache tonight, which is pounding and making it hard to think straight, so I apologize for this post if it is even more random or full of typos than usual.  Anyone have anything that works for hormone headaches, by the way?  Nothing really works for me except to wait it out, which is annoying.  I'll gladly take your suggestions.
