as seen on TV...

i can't even believe i'm gonna talk about this topic. i used to have a real problem with even thinking about it. but i guess once you are married, and then when you have kids, sometimes privacy and things that gross you out are no longer an issue. today, we are gonna talk about troll feet. what are troll feet you may ask? they are the feet that you pray no one gets a glimpse of. they are the ones that might snag your covers because of their raggetiness. and well, since i have lived in alabama all of my life, shoes are optional year round when you are outside (and around your house of course. i'm not so uncouth that i venture into the days of ole when we lived in malvern and i got what i call "grocery store feet.") when at home, i never wear shoes or socks. and when i go check the mail or just run out to the storage building, shoes are not needed. and so, i confess i get the dreaded calloused and cracked heels. i have spent years trying creams, pumices, files...you name it, to get my feet to be soft and smooth. the poor ladies take a second look when they are filing my feet during a pedicure. nothing has worked. until two days ago when i finally gave in and made the purchase that has changed my life.

i am not usually one to buy into anything advertised on TV, (i mean, do we need to talk about the snuggie and all it's rave?) and it has taken me a long time to give into this. but i'm starting to think i trust those folks. i'll put it like this...i no longer have troll feet. they were silky smooth within 5 minutes. and the "mess" was all contained in the little egg. and i didn't have to contort myself in such a way that i nearly broke my neck, all while in the shower. no, friends, this was done just sitting on the floor.
i'll never be without my ped egg. it deserves serious respect. i may even hold a moment of silence. flip flops, for the 2nd summer in a row, you will be my only foot wear. my pregnant feet of last summer wishes they would have known you sooner.

I love a ped egg! My mom got me one, I think.
And you are hilarious about your shoes. I never wear shoes! Especially during the summer.
I was down in my office a couple of summers ago one night and the neighbors told me to come over for some birthday cake. Well, little did I know that they had a party over there and I showed up BAREFOOT and PREGNANT ready for my cake! hahaha!
Gotta go find my ped egg-

Ped Eggs are available at your local Walmart and CVS. I bought one a year ago and LOVE IT. Makes flip flop feet much prettier.

I love mine, but be careful that you don't use it too hard - it can make you bleed or make your feet CRAZY tender. Especially if you have super troll feet and have to scrape through years of calluses and to remember what normal feet feel like :)

I know this was months ago, but I have been wanting to get back to read it. So, I chose today-like I have any more time today than any other day...
J has been trying to get me to get one of these but I was afraid they would be like the epilady and my feet would not be usable for a month. I may have to invest...We just got a walmart gift card from J's work...that may be my purchase. Who cares what I really NEED?!

Also Cool
