I'm married to a funny guy, both literally and figuratively speaking. The other day he asked me if I was going to do a post on my "new" new boots and when I asked him why he said, "well your last post was so sad." Funny, I never thought of it as sad, I was going for tongue in cheek, but this man of mine knew how much I had longed for those boots, so for him it was a sad post. Little does he know...well actually he does but he must have temporarily forgotten, that I can turn on a dime...love something one minute and be moving right on down the line the next.
I returned the Coach boots and never looked back, in fact I felt kind of relieved that I had made the grown up decision of allowing comfort to trump looks. In my younger years I would have likely muscled through wearing those boots, only to regret it when I needed to take a nice long bath to soothe my aching arches! Now, don't get me wrong, I wasn't giving up that easily, I knew I would find other boots, and so it was last Sunday night on our way to dinner when I said, "hey let's stop by the store and buy you some jeans...you really need some new jeans."
I tried on 3 pairs of boots, all with lower heels, and when I tried on the ones pictured above, I knew they were the ones! Comfy...check...on sale...check...and in my size...double check! They are not red, though if they had had the red ones in my size, you can bet your bottom dollar they would have come home with me too. They are from Unlisted by Kenneth Cole and they feel like bedroom slippers, at least to me they do. They are almost a grey/green and will go with everything, so all's well that ends well. I even put them on in the car and wore them to dinner...and did I mention they were only $23?! And everyone knows that getting a good deal makes you love something even more...well, except in the case of the .99 cent off brand cookies my dad used to stock up on...they were disgusting, but we're not talking cookies here people, we're talking dirt cheap booties!
Fast forward to today, and although I have new boots and Mr. Tide has new jeans, neither of us will be wearing them.
We got some snow throughout the day yesterday and into last night, and along with the white stuff it's been blowing a gale. Our temps were in the single digits, and the wind chills took us into minus territory...I think last night it was -8, and that was before midnight!
Even this afternoon when I took the dogs out it was still blowing, but not nearly as badly as yesterday, for which Mr. Quinn is very thankful.
He and Misty love the snow, but even they are smart enough to know that when it feels like 7 degrees outside, they shouldn't play for too long.
That face pretty much says it all. That's the face of a happy, albeit cold doggie!
Misty insists on rolling around and burying her entire head in the snow like a snowplow. Even in the minus temps, it is always a plus to have them around!
If you are part of this big snow storm, or feeling the chilling temps of January wherever you are, stay safe and warm my friends!
