Standing in the checkout line….I couldn’t resist snapping a quick shot of this little guy’s feet. I was reminded of my “boys“. They were not very old when my dad asked to take them shopping for their first pair of cowboy boots. When you live in rural Oklahoma, you wear boots.
Then I recalled one of the first gifts I received from hubby after we were married…
And my boys when my youngest was married…
You have such a neat perspective on things..and really ‘see’ things…so nicely done PSB!
I was actually just wondering if your Ben has cowboy boots? If not….we must “fix” that! : Thanks, Bon Bon ♥
My Ben does not have cowboy boots! 🙂
And, always PSB
Do YOU? Come visit….I have a place I must take you and get you both boots!
I do not either. Ben and Bon are cowboy boot challenged!! haha! 🙂
Same here in Texas; more than just boots! It’s a way of life!
It’s a great traditional dress. Practical too for life in the country.
I love that I don’t hesitate as much to get muddy when my boots are on….especially in hubby’s truck. They’ll both wash! 🙂
We’re just now starting to get “into” boots here in Tennessee, but my relatives in Texas probably sleep in theirs. So you’re right — it’s more than just boots! http://ohtheplaceswesee.com
When you find the right pair….you wanna live in em! Then I have some “pretty” ones that I can’t wait to kick off when I get home! 🙂
You love for where you live shines through.
It’s definitely “home”…. 🙂
Cowboy boots are cool! Had three sons and not one of them ever asked for boots. A middle of the country thing I suppose. I want a pair! I wear Red Wings..
I couldn’t tell you how many pair of boots our boys own between them. The youngest worked for a boot store while in college….it made for great prices for the wedding party! 🙂 Red Wings….close enough ~
Still have my very first pair love them although they look like well… I don’t know only that I have had them since 1984 and they are still my favs.
Mine are from 1982….and too little now…..but I keep them anyways! 🙂
all good cowgirls do LOL
🙂 true that!
Those boots are pretty big if it’s just a kid wearing them! Interesting perspective though. I live in a place where almost nobody wears cowboy boots, aside from in a novelty way.
Boots with shorts, boots with dresses, boots with jeans…pretty much a standard here….hats are optional though! 🙂
Doesn’t matter if you’re dancing, at a wedding, or working in the yard, a great pair of boots always fits the occasion.
I don’t “like” this post, I love it!
🙂 Thanks so much♥
Reblogged this on Amanda's Words / starfire8me and commented:
I agree, my boys went through the same phase.
Appreciate your visit…..and you 🙂
I love my cowboy boots! Once you wear them in, they are so comfortable. Yup, more than boots, they’re a way of living. 😉
It does take a little bit to get em broken in….and then it’s hard to get a new pair! 🙂
My daughter was maid of honor in her best friend’s wedding lately and the entire wedding party wore cowboy boots even the bride, the guests were encouraged to wear them too. It was by far the best wedding I have ever been to!
I think boots look sharp. LOVE a cowboy wedding. Wish I’d listened to my hubby way back when and had one. Maybe our next wedding? 🙂
Shortly after my dad died, I moved to Abilene, Texas and started my first “real” job as a single mom. With my first paycheck, I bought a pair of cowboy boots I’d been admiring for oh, so long. They no longer fit, but I can’t make myself get rid of them. They are definitely so much “more than cowboy boots” and have such strong memories attached to them. Thanks for that little trip down memory lane!
Totally understand, Christi! My boots here….after having kids, etc….no way they still fit! But they still hang out in the closet with the other ones. 🙂 Thanks for reading ♥ Appreciate you!
I don’t get the whole cowboy boot thang. I have bunions so I don’t like to wear anything stiff. I have some rubber boots for working in the yard and I hate them. They don’t fit right and they bang my calves. My Dad, now 83, has worn cowboy boots forever and ever. Used to wear the shirts, too. I wish I “got” this.
It takes finally finding that right pair…..and that ain’t easy to do! So then you never wanna give them up. 🙂
Living here in Cowtown — which is what Easterners sometimes call Calgary — cowboy boots are a necessity! And sooooo comfortable too! 🙂
Love it! And there are some really pretty ones out there, too!
Wish I had some Cowboy boots…
🙂 You seem like a cowboy boot kinda guy, too!
I grew up with cowboy boots. My theory is that if you can break in a good pair of boots, there’s no problem with wearing a pair of 3 inch heels.
A good theory….but I have not worn 3 inch heels in many years!!! 🙂
what a sweet post, i especially liked the shorts and boots fashion combo. i owned one pair of cowboy boots when i lived in NY, and i wore them so much, they could no longer be repaired.
and ty for liking my humorous poem today, encouragement means a lot to me. *smiles*
🙂 Boots with everything around here. 🙂 I’m glad it’s finally considered the “norm”. 🙂 I have my favorite pair of boots that are still hanging in there. I hope you run onto another sweet pair one of these days!
So glad to find you and your blog. Good stuff! ♥ paula
