Squirrels and Snowmen

Music Playlist at

Today was interesting.  I was, as usual, running around like a banshee all day, so needless to say, when I stopped for my usual lunch break photo op at, what I have begun to affectionately call "the weirdest things that have ever happened to me in Boulder have happened in this park", I was on a low time limit.   

Of course, when you are on a low time limit, you often find some very interesting distractions.  For instance, someone had taken the liberty of festively decorating the park with this little snowman.  Isn't he cute?  I named him Sam.  Even more interesting, though, was my observation that this snowman was in between a set of tire tracks.  In the snow.  In the middle of the park.  And Sam survived.

Also, while I was taking my pictures, I noticed a man on a bike, parked next to my camera.  His name was Dwayne.  Apparently, Dwayne is a squirrel affectionado.  Dwayne like to take his time to let you know everything about squirrels and their habits.  He even (and I am not kidding you), whistled to the squirrel and it came over to him. 

Yesterday I promised you guys a great giveaway and here she is!  Recently, the very lovely Brenda from Monroe & Main sent me over these adorable boots.  Upon receiving their catalog, I could not get over their amazing boot collection!  She has been kind enough to offer you lucky readers a chance to win a pair as well! 

My honest review of these boots?  They are smooth as silk to the touch and I love the button detail and versatility on wear of the boot.  The buttons on top come undone and can change the boots to a different height.  I've told you before, though, that I have wide feet.  I think that these boots might have been intended for skinnier feet.  Mine were a bit scrunched.  Also, these boots are described as over the knee boots, but they only came up to my knee, which was kind of disappointing.  All in all though, a lovely flat, tall, rich-colored boot that I can see pairing with some great skinny jeans, with shorter skirts in the spring and even have a few maxi skirts in mind.

Wanna know something cool?  You could win a pair for yourselves!  See the details below to enter but hurry, because entries expire next Thursday, December 15th at midnight.
