Flip Flops in October???

If any of you know Mary Reese, you know she has a shoe fetish. She LOVES shoes, especially flip flops and high heels. Last year for her birthday, my mother bought her a box set of all the Disney Princess shoes at Costco. Well, one night (before her birthday) we were over there and like always Mary Reese went to “Debbie’s” closet to try on all her shoes. A few minutes later we heard her coming into the kitchen saying “Me, Me, Me!” but weren’t real sure what she was talking about. We quickly found out when she rounded the corner with the box of shoes in hand. Needless to say, she got her birthday present a few weeks early! This summer she developed a deep love for flip flops…she wears them with everything (even her beautiful French hand sewn Easter dress but it wasn’t worth the battle). Yesterday when I pulled up at the house, she came running to the car sporting these purple sequin wedge flip flops that she and Nanny Nan bought yesterday. She said they were just like mine…which they do remind me of my Yellow Box ones. Honestly, I don’t think she is going to retire her flip flops for the winter. So if you see her out in the middle of winter with her flip flops on…I am not a terrible mother and she does own tennis shoes, clogs, nice “church” shoes and other weather appropriate shoes…she just prefers flip flops!
