but that's not what i'm really talkin' about here.
last weekend found kiroman speaking at brad glowaki's marketing bonanza in phoenix. i opted to stay home and make sure teenager studied for her finals.
but then i found out she really wasn't having any finals so to speak. there was a paper due, and the other classes weren't finals...just plain ol' exams.
so i probably could have gone but...i do what i do so kiroman can do what he does...and staying home was the thing i decided to do.
which is too bad because the feedback i have seen...pretty much states that kiroman was off the charts on fire that day...i'm sad to to have missed it :(
anyways, i digress...
i had decided i needed a pair of uggs. and need is not the correct word. i wanted a pair of uggs, how's that?
i have steered clear of the whole ugg scene this far but they were really calling out to me...go figure.
so i found a pair of regular ol' uggs...the taller ones, the plain darker ones...then teenager saw these and decided that they were the ones i must have:
for this next series of boots i need to go back to when teenager fell in love with old gringo's. she searched high and low for a pair and finally found the ones online so we ordered away. once her boots arrived, i decided that i should have a pair too...so...i looked high and low for the right pair for me and settled on these:
then teenager pointed out that our local jean store carries cowboy boots so we stopped to look but they didn't have the ones i liked in my size.
so a week later, teenager and her friend are back at the mall and she texts me pics of really cool boots...and i tell her to hold the coolest pair in my size and i would take a look at them later.
those boots turned out to be these boots:
but then...we went to the other mall and the store there had these:
oh.my.gosh. wings. hearts. peace sign. seriously? seriously. [how do you like the inadvertant bokeh going on with the white christmas tree???] so what's a girl to do but come home with all of them, right? right.
now i need more than one pair of straight legged jeans to go with all my boots!
and no, these weren't purchased all on the same day...it was a multi-day shopping excursion...things like this must be savored!
i am grateful:
- teenager made it through the first semester of college
- for my very supportive friends
- for my mom - she listens to my ramblings so patiently!
- to see paw paw run across the yard to catch up with the doolittles
- photo365 was updated to use more than one picture a day!!!
just breathing isn't living!
