THESE BOOTS...

are made for WALKIN'...
(NOT kicking.)

Friday as I was flying over the midwest, it dawned on me that I forgot to pack a Sunday outfit for church. I didn't even have shoes. It's a long story. So when I arrived, Joy was good enough to take me shopping. I love her style and wanted some of it to rub off on me. One of the items that we picked up were these boots. They scare me. I've never owned a pair...EVER! Yesterday I wore them to church. Because we were a smidge late to my brother's ward, we sat in the overflow area. Instead of benches, we were sitting in open-backed chairs. I quickly found out that I am NOT so graceful in my boots. Twice...TWICE I kicked the bum of the lady sitting in front of me. TWICE! It happened as I crossed my legs. After the second time I didn't dare move my feet. What can I say? I'm a rookie.

(would it be appropriate to say that I kicked some serious booty?!?!)

I have always loved boots.
I remember before moving to Colorado from Utah, I bought 2 pair and wore them for over 20 years (surprise). I again have 2 pairs, but this time with no heels. I figure at my age in the ice and snow that would be better.
ENJOY! It might be a genetic thing. mom

The only boots I own are the ones for snow--nothing fancy. I'm surprised you wore boots with heels, especially since you're on crutches. How is the leg?
