This giveaway is now closed. And the winner is… Patty Stith! Can’t wait to see your boots, girl!
This is the child I birthed wearing the boots that were so generously given to me by Country Outfitters back in the spring at the Bean2Blog event at P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farm, aka the home of big ass vegetables.
Why is my daughter wearing my kickass boots? Because she’s twelve. And she stole them. That’s right. I’m living with a boot thief.
She had heard, around camp, at the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged retreat, that someone–maybe the Rockstar of Social Media for Acumen Brands’ Country Outfitters–had some kind of Oprah complex that compelled her to give boots away to every blogger in attendance.
I tried to explain to my precious girl that I already had my boots–my badass and beautiful Women’s Rodeobaby Relic Boot – Glossy Tan/Deep Teal. They have skulls, see that? Anyway I told my daughter many times I wasn’t going to get another free pair of boots. I would instead do a boot giveaway.
She did not believe me.
It became especially difficult to convince her that there would indeed be no new boots when the Kiwi shoe polish swag arrived in our room. (Thank you S.C. Johnson, a family company.)
“Mom, you’re TOTALLY getting boots.”
“Can I have them?”
“Seriously. I’m telling the truth. I know Oprah.”
“Do you think they’re black? Because the polish is black. I hope they’re black.”
That girl had to have boots. So I gave her mine. To wear. For the night.
I have no idea where they are now.
All this to say, I’m partnering with Country Outfitter to give away a pair of boots! And you can get whatever you want because the deal is you get a $150 gift certificate to their site, on which you can pick out anything from badass rocker boots, to country cowgirl charmers, to work boots to stinkin’ cute you’ll want to go muck a stall.
