happy shoe news:)

after a 2+ year search for a neato skeato pair of winter boots that fit all of my criteria, about a week ago i hit the jackpot.:) luke has been, for these last 2 years, trying to find me an acceptable pair of boots on various holidays and birthdays. he could never find a pair that he knew i would really like, so last year on my birthday as part of my gift he told me i could pick out a pair. even with this free reign, i still couldn't find THE pair of boots that i wanted. the problem is that i have too many stipulations: no heel, must be brown (preferably dark brown), no pointy toes, more casual than dressy, warm soft interior... and so and so forth.:) a week ago sunday, we were downtown for my birthday and decided to browse around the mall. at the last minute we walked through carson pirie scott, a store we never go to. there sitting on a display table in all their glory were the perfect boots. not only did they fit all of my criteria, but they were a favorite brand of mine (rocket dogs) and they were on clearance. it was the last pair they had and they just happened to be size 6. which is awesome, because i often have difficulty finding shoes for my irregularly small feet.:)
in other happy shoe news, one of my favorite people besides my family members (*cough* carly *cought*) gave me a ridiculously awesome birthday gift. she personally designed a pair of converses for me on their website. they are freaking sweet! they are black with green stitching, the tongue and inside has a cool black and white skull design and down by the heel is stiched "liz". how cool is that?
i love shoes...

I totally need a pair of boots! The winters up here are making my shoe selection look miserable! All of my choices leave my feet to exposed and there is only so many places you can wear a fairly trendy pair of snow boots. What to do!
