Just a quick Monday post…

…to say I have the best blog readers and commenters EVER. Thanks to everyone who suggested boot alternative for a girl who has issues with her calves. And ankles. And boots in general. Right after I wrote Friday’s post, though, I went to Nordstrom Rack and found these. My friend Dana always says that when you find the right shoe or outfit, it calls to you. I think I could hear them, because I picked them up:

I brought them to the dressing room, where I tried them on with a pair of jeans I was also considering. One attendant at the counter saw me and said, “Those are great boots!” Okay, then. I walked around a bit, and ANOTHER attendant, a guy, said the same thing. “I’m dating myself here,” he confessed, blushing, “but they’re a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll!” Nothing like a Donny and Marie reference to seal the deal. So I bought them. They are Enzo Angiolini and when I put them on at home I STILL think they look weird on me. But I felt the same way about these sandals I bought earlier this summer. So I will make myself wear them, a little at a time, until I am used to them.

I just felt the need to share this with you.

Also, a thank you to Holly, who suggested I try Body Glide for my feet next time I am in New York and worried about blisters. BRILLIANT IDEA. I use it when I run: had never thought of trying it for that, though! What would I do without you guys?

Okay, back to Monday. Have a good afternoon, everyone!
