Yesterday we went shopping for my secret birthday present in a new store in the next city over, Denham Springs, LA. There, in the final stages is a really wonderful new mall called Juban Crossing. Not the indoor kind but the new type with the stores facing center parking lots. I wonder why they changed from the old style malls that were all enclosed? But I digress.
We went in, and he gave me instructions to look at BOOTS! BOOTS! He had scoped the store out earlier in the week and found a literal treasure trove of BOOTS! OMG! Boot Heaven! Glen Heaven!
I lamented the dearth of Carlos Santana boots but there was Ralph Lauren in his place. And so many others! No fringe boots, Carrie was majorly relieved about that when I told her later. Well, there was a pair but they were Uggs, and don't think I didn't consider them.......
I tried on a hundred, no two hundred pairs. I often had one of each on making choices, weaning them down to a handful. Finally I got to two of the most wonderful pairs.
Then I had to choose. I chose the black boots with the straps, but I definitely mourned the loss of the brown lace up ones.
So this morning, I see the brown lace up boots! YES! BOOTS! How did he do that?
I love boots!
He was in the dog house earlier this week, but I think he might just have bought his way out with these marvelous Birthday Presents!
