Based on the comments, texts, and an email I received in response to my last post, I think you were more interested in Vivi's new pink sparkly boots than you were about my tragic near-death coffee overdose. (I made it home alive, but just barely. Thanks for caring.) So a few of you might also want to get your hands on a pair of $10 pink sparkly Ugg-type boots for your little princess sparklepantses, I'm gathering? Vivi would definitely approve of you buying these. She's got her brother's hand me down chocolate Uggs, and while they're cushier and obviously higher quality (and therefore hand me downable) than the knock-off version, there are two problems with said hand me down chocolate Uggs: a) a certain dearly departed dog chewed a tiny portion of the trim last winter and b) they're NOT PINK. OR SPARKLY. So when Miss V woke up Saturday morning and laid eyes on the pink sparkly non-nibbled pair I'd picked up for her the night before? Oh, happy day. She wanted them on over her footie pajamas immediately, and I had to fight them off of her at nap time. And this morning, when I tried to coerce her into the brown pair (they matched her tights better!) there were tears. "Pink parkleeeee odder ones! Pink parkleeeeee boots, mama!" I gave in, obvi.
Anyway, ready? Walmart! (I know, I know, hardy har har, laugh away college BFFs who remember a day when yours truly wouldn't step FOOT inside a Wally except that one time when Britney's new album came out at midnight and Gervs and I were there with bells on to get our CD the minute it was available.) (This was before iTunes made the youth of America lazy.) (Gawd, we're old.) Anywho, I found Vivi's size 7s in the store, but I see sizes 8 - 11 are available online. Right HERE. Run! I just ordered the size 8s, because the way my girl's feet are growing, she'll need to size up by next month. And also because I knew all you crazies were going to go buy them all up if I didn't jump on it. So there you go! Sparkle away, sparkly ones!
