These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

And that’s just what they’ll do
These Boots were made for walkin’
And they’ll walk all over you.

Meet my other birthday present.

Am I crazy or what??? One of Z’s preschool buddy’s family owns a western wear store (largest in the midwest) that apparently has serviced even famous people (unlike myself) and I had this conversation several months ago with the mother about boots. Apparently they are awesome and you’ll fall in love with them and not want to wear anything else.

Shoe-wise that is….

So I pooled together a giftcard and some bday money and splurged on myself and am the proud new owner of cowboy boots.


Oh, and kitty has a new name. Yesterday it was Monty til I got to the end of the day and didn’t like it anymore. Then it almost became Lionel this morning until I didn’t like that anymore either.
I also tossed around Hamlet and Lancelot, Pippen and Rascal (because he is one!), Darcy and Samwise Gamgee….some seriously and others not so seriously. But then I got to thinking that it would be fun to pick a name from a favorite book or movie….
And as I was researching online for ideas, one of my favorite movies popped into my head: The Sound of Music. And I thought to myself, “Self, why don’t you think through the names of the characters from that movie and see if you can find a winner!”
Not Liesle.
Not Gretle.
Not Maria or Kurt or Brigitta or Captain Von Trapp (although that is kind of cute..)
How about….
That’s right. My cat’s name if Friedrich (Free-drick) and I’m proud of it!
And of my cowboy boots, too:)
