Santa Fe (And Get Yourself Some Boots!)

Howdy, folks! I forgot to ask last week…how was your Thanksgiving? We spent ours in Santa Fe with my family, and it was a perfectly festive break from our not so Christmas-y Southern California weather. We left on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and DROVE to Santa Fe because, well, we are obviously insane. However, the trip out there was surprisingly calm. I’m thinking our decision to present Wito with a shiny new family iPad (that I had painstakingly filled up with crazy fun apps and his favorite movies the night before) minutes before we embarked on the trip MIGHT have been a factor in the overall road trip happiness.

Now, the road trip back was another story. 5-year molars, snowstorms, 103-degree fevers…do I need to elaborate? No? Okie dokie.

Actually, I do think I will elaborate a teensy bit. We’ve been home for a week now and both kids are still sick. Three trips to the doctor, pink eye, a double ear infection, projectile vomiting and multiple rounds of aggressive hives later, I would like to say one thing to Santa Fe. WHAT THE SAM HELL IS UP WITH YOUR CRAZY MOUNTAIN VIRUSES?

Anyhoo! Santa Fe! Please to enjoy The Festive Festivities!

The Plaza Lighting Ceremony!

The crew. (They’re like The Outsiders – Preppy Version!)

A couple of turkeys…

And a baby doll.

Most importantly, I think Riley may have met his match in the suspicion department.

Now, if you haven’t visited Santa Fe before, cowboy boots are kind of a must.

Personally, Santa Fe or not, I think EVERYONE should own a pair of cowboy boots. Aren’t these Ariat boots gorgeous? I’ve been quite fond of them lately. My good friends at Langstons sent them my way a couple months ago and they have quickly become tops in my cowboy boot repertoire. I think you should have a pair too. So! Leave a comment on this post before Thursday, December 9th at 6pm PST and you’ll be entered to win one pair of Ariat boots from Langstons! I am loving my vintage caramel color, but if it’s not your cup of tea, you can choose any pair of Ariats you’d like. Check out all of the styles here.

Additionally, Langstons is offering 20% off all orders over $100 with the coupon code whoorl until December 12th. (And because I can not keep myself from looking at precious kiddie shoes, have you seen these and these? GAAAHHH SO CUTE.)

Yippee Ki Yay!!

    Yes, yes, yes to cowboy boots being oh-so-Santa Fe! I was there in October on my honeymoon and I highly regretted my decision to not buy a pair.

    Ooooh! I would LOVE a pair of Ariat boots! I’ve been coveting a good pair of cowboy boots since an unfortunate family incident wherein a pair of vintage red (red!) cowboy boots was found while setting up for an estate sale. Ownership of said boots was hotly debated, and though they fit me and I promised to love them , they ended up going home with another family member, who intended to box them away in her children’s dress-up play trunk. And I cried.
    So, yes. Pick me, oh random generator!
