A Girl & Her Boots

First, I'd like to say thank you for all the Birthday wishes! It was a lovely week (and day), indeed. Although I did not make it to the bookstore on my own or did I make to the lake for an early morning run like I hoped--(a run at the lake is special not just because it is at the lake, but because I get to go without toting the kiddos), I did enjoy all of the rest that was on my list:

Received my order from Powell's Books

Had some great writing sessions with lots of progress made...

Indulged in the best cupcake I have ever enjoyed from St.Cupcake

Rocked out at my bowling party

and...

Almost dropped dead when I met these beauties face-to-face!




Friends, these boots are SERIOUS! And just in time for the fall!

Actually, there is a funny story that accompanies these boots. Thursday night, two nights before my Birthday, I was standing in my room with my laptop, reading some comments left on my Birthday post and started laughing. My sis, Amber said something to the effect of--"now you go get those boots..." So, I had to ask the husband where we stood on these boots? I mean come on--I don't hint at gift ideas, well, really ever, so when he smiled the other week at my blatant want-of-a-gift, I figured we were good. Also, I must add that I DO trust his taste in picking out awesomeness as he has picked out sunglasses, my wedding ring, and the other cowboy boots that I love--so yes, I figured he'd do the job and pick out some killer boots.

So, when I asked about the boots...I received a so-so response, the kind that you know that nothing has been done about. Laughing and feeling a bit embarrassed, I told him that we were definitely in a pickle since I had posted on my blog that I was hoping for some boots--which, it's not like this was new-news or anything, right? and people have commented on me getting those boots and asked for a peak when they arrive...

Again, he laughed. Not because he was hiding a surprise, but because this blog was going to help me get those boots, dang-it.

And they sure did.

Right then and there, we began the search for the perfect boots. Husband had Laccheses in mind, and after an hour or so of searching, I laid eyes on them, and it was then that I knew that I knew what knowing-when-you-see-it is all about.

truly
A match made in cyber-space.

And even matchy-er match when they arrived on my doorstep.

And even more so, when I jerked them onto my foot--
because this is what you have to do when you put on boots that need to desperately be broken in.

I still smile when I think about them. I know. I know. Just material things--but sometimes it's a look at something so beautifully intricate that makes your day.

I know that Husband is happy that I helped him pull through, too! I had the biggest grin on my face, UNTIL...

BIG NEWS UP NEXT!

I love boots! I got a pair of frye boots this year and have been bumping around in them constantly (even though it's not getting cold here in Louisiana anytime soon!)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
