the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Made for walking in the two feet of snow in my driveway

The winter boots that I’ve had for eight years failed me over the holidays when I slipped on the ice in my driveway and gave my butt a huge shiner. I had a feeling this winter was going to be heavy with snow, and there’s a huge storm raging outside as I type this (two feet and counting). Time to get something with a sole sturdy enough that will keep me from ending up in hot pink cast.

A couple of weeks ago I went window shopping for boots and when it finally came time to make a decision I chose these: Sorel Women’s Firenzy II Tall Boot. I am a sucker for that orange rubber sole.

I ordered them in my size (8.5), and I think they’ve made these boots to wear with really thick socks. They run a little big. This might bother some people, but it gets cold enough here that I’ve got wool socks to fill in the space. While running errands in the snow yesterday I felt so much safer walking through slushy and icy parking lots.

And yeah, see Chuck? He heard me turn on the camera. He wanted a treat for standing in my closet with me.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
