My New BFF


The Mailman
In the middle of my painting of the second coat of green in the bathroom I had a knock at the door along with a doorbell ring. Who is that? Nobody ever just stops by. It's either Church Folks or Magazine Sales.
I go downstairs and there in the window is the mailman. Now he normally is a stale smoke smellin curmudgeon. Today I had what must be the B or C team of mail delivery personnel. I say that because our normal mailman doesn't bring stuff to the door. He hucks it from his car in the drive way to door. If he's too lazy to do that he usually just tries to shoves it in the mailbox which doesn't always work. In August he knocked the mailbox over...........anyway..........back to my story.
This B Team Member is my new BFF! Not because he brought the package to the door and let me know it was there but because he brought me this...............
That's right!
My new funky ass rubber boots! The Hubs got me these for Christmas but because of the weather (they would have come in handy while we had 2 feet of snow) they didn't make it in time.
These are Nomad Boots from Shoe Buy.com.
They have some really fun boots. I found a couple more styles that looked like they would like to come live with me.
Not only are these boots funky and different but they are super comfortable. I have some freakish high arches and I can't wear flat shoes so all those cute rubber boots that are popular now are a NO CAN DO for me. Which has made me cry more then a couple times. I had to get these boots a size bigger than I normally wear so be aware of that if your going to order these.
Love them! They are going to go with everything. Brown, blue, pink, white plaid with black trim. Since we still have a foot or so of snow and it's snowing again today I bet I get a little use out of them still this year.
These are going to be fantastic at the beach this spring!
*****UPDATE****
The Hubs just informed me that these are not a late Christmas present. They are an early birthday present because he's so organized and on top of things!
