So, last night, I’m sitting on my couch, eating an inordinate number of pumpkin spice cookies (I can’t help it, they’re sooo good. I’ll share the recipe soon), and I open my laptop to find that my WordPress stats page seems to think that my blog has gotten well over 1,000 visitors today.
Now, for the sake of this story, let’s just pretend that that number is at least a bit larger than this ol’ blog is used to seeing. A normal person may then think, “Well geeze, I must have done something great today”, while my immediate and somewhat self-deprecating response was more a mixture of, “What’s broken?” and “Crud, did somebody sneakily take inappropriate/scandalous photos of me and find a way to upload them to my blog?!”
So, what was the culprit in the end? Don’t worry, you didn’t miss any unseemly photos, the guilty party included non-other than my beautiful brown button-laden boots. Apparently they were pinned and then subsequently found their way smack dab to the middle of the Pinterest.com homepage.
Since then, I have had quite a few questions regarding where these beauties hail from. So, I thought perhaps I could help some sisters out. As I said in the boot’s debut post, I found these lovelies at Ross for a mere 25 buckaroos. I checked, and it looks like their original manufacturer is Nicole. Sadly, I have scoured the Internet trying to find them for you guys, but I can’t seem to track them down. I am a bad boot hunter. Seriously, it took me years just to find this pair. Nicole does definitely have some other cute boots on their website, but I have yet to see an identical copy of mine.
**** UPDATE: We found a pair of boots that are REALLY REALLY close to these ones! Check out this post to see where you can buy them.
So, if any of you are better than I am at hunting down boots with a keyboard and a trackpad (or a mouse I suppose), and you happen to come across them, please, send me a line so that I can spread the word.
