Boot Hunt

September 3, 2009 at 10:40 am 2 comments

Well, the last few days have been filled with a crazy, frenzied hunt for the perfect fall boot for me.  I have long dreamed (for years and years) of the perfect boot – a long, lean leather polo style boot without much of a heel.  As it turns out, there seems to be no such thing.  I know anytime I use the word perfect I am bound to be disappointed and unable to find said perfection, and this perfect boot seems to be yet another example of the failure of perfectionism.  But, I must admit I am also a small calved, short legged woman wanting to look long and lean in these boots, and I don’t want to spend a fortune and have buyers remorse every fall for the rest of my life.  So it may be awhile still, however, the hunt is still on! 

While I have been on my hunt, Hailey has patiently tagged along.  And she has kept me smiling!  Here are some pictures from the last few days.  Also, worthy of noting, she pulled up for the first time on Tuesday.  She was sitting up on my leg and grabbed the bouncer and up she went.  She made it look effortless and acted like she has been doing it all her life.  Hailey has also put together a video of her thoughts on last weekend for the Weekend in Review, but she (and mommy) have not figured out how to upload it yet, so hopefully our tech guy (aka Daddy) will help us with it tonight.  Sorry for the long wait on that bit!  But it will be worth the wait, trust me.  Her thoughts are always so, ummm, right on the money.  Anyways, just a little teaser for the video to come.

    Ohhhhhh . . to be thin-calved and short. The thick calves do NOTHING when it comes to boots!!!! Enjoy the search.

    Love, Cheryl

    Well at this point having 3 inches of extra leather lag behind the rest of me has done nothing for me either…boot shopping is quickly moving on up there with swimsuit shopping…
