Patience Pays Off

When I went to Montana in December, my generous mother bought me something I never thought I'd return to after the early '90's: leggings.  Don't get me wrong, they are cute on everyone else, but I felt naked when I put them on.  Nevertheless, I fell in love with the outfit she bought me, and when she promised me boots, I was sold.  I went online, bought a cute pair from Target.com and eagerly anticipated them.  Every. Single. Day.

Fast forward a month and a half later.  I NEVER received my boots.  Disappointed?  An understatement.  I rarely get excited about shoes (it's the "practical" in me), but I was excited about these boots.  And so, after canceling the order with Target.com, I surrendered to the idea that I'd need to start from square one...and look for cute and *inexpensive* tall boots.  Hey, control your laughter.

No luck.  In California the sandals are now in the local stores, as the sun has been blinding for weeks.  However, feeling a little blue without my hubby around (he was on a business trip), I took the boys to Target...just to get out.  I happened to look in the clearance area of the shoes, and just happened to find these:


Size 7.  The same color gray I initially had wanted.  And then I saw the price tag:

$3.56.  That's right.  Normally $40.  I wanted to do a backflip, but was afraid I might pull something.  I screamed inside and Christian looked at me like I was a crazy person.

When I came home I tried them on right away with my outfit.

Oh yeah.  I got the belt on clearance too.  $3.96.  The belt cost more than the boots!  I then realized that I had a Salvation Army sweater that could work with my sexy new boots too...
Don't mind the headless pics.  I didn't like my hair.  I'm vain.  Don't judge.

And so, I readily admit, patience (and persistence) does pay off!

Sing it with me...these boots were made for walkin', and that's just what I'll do...
