Favorite Things, Day 3: Warm Fuzzy Socks!


During  the month of December,  I am setting a goal to post each day with one  of my favorite  somethings. It could be a favorite food, a favorite  thing, a favorite  person, a favorite blog, a favorite handmade thing, a  favorite place...  really a favorite any and everything!   Join me as I review my favorites during December 2010! I'd love to read about your favorites too!

When we purchased the house we're currently living in, several huge projects immediately commenced. 90% of them were not by choice (gotta love when the inspector doesn't find the issues and his liability is limited to the cost of the inspection!), but by need. During the course of the projects, the carpets and other flooring were removed from every square inch of our first/entry floor.

I remember seeing friends homes that had their entire home tiled, rather than wood, laminate, or carpet. I also remember thinking that it was brilliant, as it would be easy to maintain. I think that it was then, that with that thought, I fought requested to tile our entire first floor. And, it IS easy to maintain! (except for those grout lines. Dude. It sucks to try and scrub those suckers every once in a while)

Did you know I'm anemic?

And that one of the major side effects/characteristics of anemia is ALWAYS being cold?

Yup! It's true.

You do know that tile floors aren't generally heated, right? (Yes, I realize that we could have opted to have heating elements installed beneath the tiles. However, this is Texas ya'll. We're not supposed to be cold!)

Which is what brings me to today's favorite thing... Warm Fuzzy Socks. No joke. I think I have at least half a dozen pairs (probably more like a dozen) and I live in wear them constantly in the fall/winter months. They are my link to keeping warm (or at least keeping my feet off of the cold tile floors).

I don't know what I'd do without my warm fuzzy socks (well, really.. in reality... I'd likely be wearing house shoes all of the time instead). I'm glad I don't have to worry about it. Currently, they're out in full force at every department and superstore I've been to. I think I'll add a few more pairs to the collection!
