I think it’s pretty much a requirement that if you live in the South you have to own at least one pair of cowboy/cowgirl boots in your lifetime. I bought these a few years ago and before I made the leap I did my research. I am super picky about boots and I wanted a quality pair, something that would last me a lot of years so I definitely wanted real leather. When I finally found these, I knew they were the ones. I loved the harness detail, the color, and the banana heel. They were pricey, but oh so worth it.

The most interesting moment I’ve ever had with a pair of shoes I had with these boots. The day they came in the mail I was so excited that I tried them on immediately. Well sort of. It took a sweet forever to get my foot in the boot because there was no side zipper for easy on/off.  I was so determined to get them on and prance around my house in my new boots that I wasn’t even thinking they might be even more trouble to get off. When I was done with all the prancing I went to take them off and discovered I was in big trouble. There was no way in Hades I was getting those boots off by myself.

With all the drama of a damsel in distress I called hubby and asked if he could get home ASAP, I was stuck. Stuck in my new boots. He just laughed. He almost couldn’t get them off either. I was thisclose to panicking, thinking I’d be crawling in bed that night firmly rooted in those boots. But eventually he pried them off my {now hurting} feet.

I almost cursed the day I ordered those puppies, but I made the best of it. Only wearing them when I knew I would have help to get them off at the end of the day. The things we do, right?! I know, I’m crazy. But I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Thanks to my friend Lindsey who gave me a little doohickey that helps remove boots I never have to worry about getting stuck in them again. It works like a charm!

PS We got our annual family pictures done this past weekend!  I absolutely can not wait until I get them back from Haley.  This is the 5th year we’ve used her and I think this is the best year yet!  These boots make an appearance.  In fact, the whole fam is wearing their cowboy/cowgirl boots :)  Can’t wait to show you!
