It's My Boot Day! Alternately Titled: Dear Zappos

Dear Zappos:

First, let me state a few factoids.

1. I love you.

2. I love your cute, kitschy little messages, notes, and emails.

3. Free shipping? You rock. Best ever.

My birthday was last week, did you know that, Zappos? I'm sure you didn't, if you did, certainly you would've sent me a beautiful present to celebrate my getting older. And wiser.

Here's the thing. I ordered two pairs of boots, the Paige (on your right) and the Melissa:

I pretty much knew which ones I wanted (Paige), but had to see them both in person. Here's the other thing, the color I really wanted in the Paige was out of stock...I knew, I just knew that ordering a different color wasn't a good idea but hey, I grew up in an "instant gratification" era. Kinda.

And, I HAD TO HAVE those boots. Now. Even if I wasn't sure of the color.

So they came. And I tried them on. And they were beautiful and glorious and man, oh man did they smell delicious. (No, I didn't lick them...but I did hug them.) But the color. It was just...not right for me. *insert tears and wailing and gnashing of teeth here*

Being the older, wiser woman I am now that my birthday has passed, I gave them one last caress and packed them up and sent them (both) wait for the other color to be stocked again.

Okay, Zappos. Here's the thing. It's been like 3 days. That's 72 hours for you mathematicians out there and HELLO!!! I thought that by being all mature and wise and (old) that the Zappos gods would smile upon me and get those other boots stocked up.

What's the dealio? When are my boots gonna be in stock? I CAN'T WAIT ANY MORE!!! I mean, have you ever had to wait 72 hours+++ for a pair of boots?

I can hardly stand it. I'm wasting away in a boot dryland over here. I'm dying a slow death from a boot deficiency. I need a boot bolus, STAT.

And, so, yeah. Okay, age hasn't brought me patience.

Boots. Please. Frye Paige, Tan Antique, size 7.5. Thank you, Zappos.

Patiently (ahem) Yours

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
