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...
