  1. Message to Kat :

    The sponsored video ads are making my Internet Explorer browser freeze and refresh. I can’t type out a post without it freezing in the middle of typing something.

    • The manageing partner’s brother told me about Adblock, b/c he was always getting dirty video’s on his PC when he was surfing web sights, so he put it on my MacBook Air, and voila, no more ads! YAY!!!!!

  2. Does anyone have Allbirds lace ups? Are the comfortable? I’m eyeing them for a casual Friday with jeans solution or walking around town on the weekend instead of running shoes. I have slight pronation and wear medical inserts with my running shoes but not with other shoes. Any advice? Do they ever go on sale? Did I miss Black Friday coupons? THANKS!

    • ALX emily :

      I have the slip-on ones (they’re fine, but not great, for my fussy between-sizes feet) but my husband has the lace ups and looooves them. They don’t go on sale to my knowledge, and you definitely didn’t miss a Black Friday sale because I ordered some for full price then.

    • When I tried them, they didn’t have enough support (even with my regular orthotic inserts) for my fussy, narrow, flat feet. They felt a bit like slippers. I envy poeple who can wear them, because they look so cool!

    • Thanks both of you! I’m going to try them since they have a 30-day return policy.

    • turtletorney :

      husband has them and loves them, but he doesn’t have any foot issues.

  3. I am crying laughing at the Elle piece on the White House Christmas decorations.
