I Was Sittin' Here Thinkin'...

...that it just may be time for a new pair of boots.

City Boy was thinking I needed a new pair, too. One day he hollered at me, "Hey, Desperate Horsewife, git yerself washed up cuz' I'm haulin' yer hiney off to Laurel Farm and buyin' ya a pair a boots."

Okay, so it didn't come out sounding quite so hick-like. After all, he's a City Boy and knows how to enunciate (even though the rest of the world can't spell enunciate...) and properly pronounce pronouns and other such words. I just like to make him sound hickish now and then for fun. But I did clean up and headed reluctantly off with him in search of boots.

My reluctance was not over the boots so much as I just hate to spend the money. Have you seen the price of new boots? I was busy checking tags and City Boy continually scolded me for it. "Stop looking at the prices or I'll just by the most expensive pair," he threatened.

Did I mention I hate spending money? Here is my solution to the problem of mud seeping in between my toes and permanently staining my socks (er...City Boy's socks...sorry, I stole another pair...)

Now...isn't that pretty? I thought it should work just fine. But City Boy was insisting he'd never be caught with me...not even dead...while I was wearing my patched up boots. So off to Laurel we went, and I began my search for a good fitting pair of boots, and City Boy threatened me over looking at the prices, and finally...finally I slipped into a pair that felt almost like I'd been wearing them for a year (minus the holes blow in the sides), and I said this is it. And I never looked at the price, but I could tell I didn't spend enough because when we went to the checkout stand, City Boy nearly went into a coma, and I'm sure it was because I had come in way under budget...don't you think?

I am due for a new pair too, although I dont have the tape yet LOL LOL

I hate spending money too. Especially on myself. But I will admit, a good pair of boots can last a LONG time and as they say on What Not to Wear, the price per wear is extremely low all considered. Not like a stupid suit or dress that you might only wear a few times...

I do like those boots though. Almost warn in already looking which is probably why they felt good.

Ha ha! Love the taped boots. Yellow tape is more fashionable than duct tape.
I love the new boots, the blue is awesome! I'd love to have blue boots someday!
Luckily, I don't wear my things out enough. I wear muck boots most of the winter, so that saves my cowboy boots in good shape, since they are worn mostly only May-October.

Nothing like a good fitting pair of boots. I have trouble finding store bought boots to fit my triple E feet, so Ted insisted on me getting a custom built pair. Best thing I've done for my feet!

Great new pair of kicks. I bought a pair of Fryes last summer...I hope they last forever.

Those boots, oh my I think you were due for a new pair long long ago. I love looking at boots, I have so many pairs I want to buy, but I just cant make myself spend the money, so I wear cheap Ariats which are comfy, but not real fancy looking

AKPonyGirl said...

So....do you wear your pants inside the boots to show off the pretty top?

I love fancy stitched boots but just can't seem to break the habit of 36" inseam Wranglers stacked over my boots. :)

I really like those! I am not feeling the taped up ones. Good boots are hard to find. Yeah You!

Very nice! I love Double H boots. They are so comfy! And City Boy just wants his socks back.

JeniQ said...

LOL @ the taped boots! I love the new ones - they look already broke in.

Magic Moonlight said...

Oh wow your boots are amazing..I have been longing for boots like that but I don't live in America sooo kinda can't!!
Just wow though!! x

froglander said...

DoubleH are a good sturdy brand, hope they help you gentle mustangs for many years to come :)

Rising Rainbow said...

Very stylish! The old ones look more like mine. I don't like to spend money either. LOL

So, um... does the tape work? I'm about two months from having to tape mine... ;)

dibear said...
