travel, hike, eat. repeat.

my adventures are often on a budget… and always clumsy.

rain, rain, come again

It only took me 2.5 years in DC to get a pair of rain boots! Okay, that’s not efficient timing, but at least I have a pair now? When I was in Boston a while back, I saw a pair of Chooka wellies I loved. But at $80, it wasn’t even kind of sort of an option. As luck would have it, a couple of days after I got back, Zan’s brother – knowing I needed waterproof covers for my piggies – sent me a link for a Rue La La sale on just that. And wouldn’t ya know it, they had Chookas! These aren’t the exact pair I found in Boston, but they’re close, and I think maybejustmaybe even cuter. I’ve been holding onto them for over a month, willing the skies to let loose so I have an excuse to wear them. Of course, when Hurricane Sandy struck, they were stuck over at Zan’s place. Then when we had another, smaller, rain storm, I was at his place, and the boots were at mine. AT LAST, this morning I woke to a drizzly, gray morning and practically leaped out of bed. The damp ground and sprinkles probably don’t warrant these suckers, but I won’t tell if you won’t.

Whether it’s wearing my new boots for the first time or the sugar from the half gallon of fresh squeezed orange juice I can never resist from Whole Foods, I’m upbeat and super duper wide awake today. If you are what you wear, I’m ready for whatever comes my way.

Chooka Chooka boo boo! Here are their rain boots.

ps – It must be noted, the Fierce 5 Olympic gymnastics team performed with Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough on last night’s Dancing With the Stars All Stars finale. Uh. You have to see this! A few thoughts:

(1) her name rising above her, oh dear. #shepulledaNastia

(2) “After retiring from my sport, I didn’t know confidence or pride or anything. You gave me everything back. I finally feel like me again.” GUH TEAR.

(3) that standing on his shoulders into a roll out? WOW. #teamshawn

Happy Tuesday!
