Once upon a time, there were three girls sitting in a hotel room in rural Georgia. They were minding their own business, putting together costumes for a party, when lo and behold! they declared that they would SURELY all win the Country Outfitter boot giveaways that were being drawn for the next evening.
They were Non-Con attendees, you see. And they were having the time of their little lives. They were high on bad coffee and excellent company, and were determined they were going to emerge victorious after The Pioneer Woman drew the winners of the boots that were being given away.
So the story goes, the girls listened to Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman (for those of you living under a proverbial rock) talk about boogers and shriveling cactus (cacti, cactuses?), and anxiously awaited the drawing. First one name was drawn. Then another. And then a last one.
ALL THREE OF THE GIRLS WON BOOTS. They were obviously lucky.
It was like a bad episode of Oprah. You get boots. YOU get boots! EVERYBODY GETS BOOTS!
There was laughing.
And there was squealing.
And then there was stalking until Ree took a picture with us.
There also may have been photobombing.
Now, you may think this story is BS, but I assure you it is not.
So I got home and ordered my boots with my $150 gift card to Country Outfitter. I knew exactly which ones I wanted. However, the gift card didn’t quite cover them *blushes* so I had to ante up some more dough. But by God, I’ve worked hard and earned them (or something).
My boots arrived. It was like Christmas morning, y’all.
I chose the Old Gringo Tyler Boot. They’re like butter. Seriously. They’re like an old friend already.
They were comfortable enough, but I knew they needed a little breaking in before I would be comfortable wearing them. I’m kinda claustrophobic about shoes and well, they fit a little snug, like a bug in a rug.
I utilized a few non-traditional methods of stretching them out a little.
Mainly using SEC Championship cups. They’re the perfect size to stretch out the tops of the boots. Spray a little water in the inside and shove those bad boys in… boom. Stretched out just enough to slip a pair of jeans in there.
This weekend, I’ll be rocking my new boots at the Auburn-Georgia game (pictures below). I’m hoping they’re my lucky boots and Auburn may pull out a win. Or at least show up to the game!
And *cough* Auburn lost. Whatever.
So here’s where YOU get lucky.
Country Outfitter has given me a $150 gift card to give away to one of you beautiful people.
