these babies are mine!

A couple weeks ago I won a giveaway on Lynzy's blog From Skirts to Skillets (she has since shut down that blog and can now be found on Sparkling Footsteps) for a $100 Beso gift certificate.  I couldn't believe I won!  I never win anything ever, haha.  Since I am casually obsessed with shoes I immediately knew I wanted to get a new pair of boots, a pair of Frye boots:)  

After looking through all the Frye boots I decided on the Frye Engineer 12R:

Aren't they amazing?!?!?  I got my $100 gift certificate from Beso for Piperlime and ordered the boots.  They arrived only 4 days after I ordered them!  I got the package at work, opened it and tried to put on the left boot.  I couldn't get it on!!!  I started to panic thinking that they just weren't going to work for me and I would have to send them back.  I tried to put my foot in again but I still couldn't.  I knew they would fit if only I could get my foot in so I brought them home determined to get them on. 

When I got home I tried on the right one and got it on with only a little bit of a struggle.  So I put my foot in the left one and pushed my foot in as I pulled up on the boot as hard as I could and I got it on.  Then I collapsed on the couch out of breath, haha.  Once they were on my feet I instantly fell in love.  They fit perfectly and are so comfortable!  I was concerned that I was going to have a lot of trouble getting them off but I really didn't.  This morning it was a little easier to get them on.  I am really in love with them and know they will be in my shoe collection for a very long time:)

Thank you Lynzy and Beso for making it possible for me to get these great boots!!!

It was pretty hilarious watching me try to get them on. I am wearing them today and I LOVE them, they are so comfortable and they make me feel kinda badass:)
