Day 54 - Real Life...Sign...Real Life...Sign...

That pretty much describes my picture(s) today. We were standing next to a sign that had the names of mountains on it as we were overlooking the mountains the sign was showing us. I HAD to take a was so cool! I could easily tell which mountains were which, and it was fun to be able to see that. 
Can you see it?
I just wanted to share that with you today:)

Day 53 - WAY Up High

Yep. That's how high we were...the highest you could be on the path up the mountains in Estes Park. Thie highest point on the Continental Divide. 12,020 feet. Wow. That's pretty high up.
We actually drove past this sign, but since I really wanted a picture, I got my parents to turn around and go back. :) Glad they did, because now I have proof.

Day 51 - Squirrel

While in Colorado, my family decided to go to Estes Park. Tomorrow, I'll post a picture of what it looked like from almost 12,000 feet up! But for now, I want to share this picture of this adorable little squirrel.
He was strolling along on the rocks and decided to look right at me for a great picture! Thanks little guy:)

Day 50 - Awesome Sign

Today is my 50th blog post! Woot woot! I know that if I had blogged every single day since I started, I'd be a lot farther, but my crazy schedule hasn't really permitted me the freedom to blog everyday. Yes, I could try to make the time, but I don't always think about it...but today is not a day for apologies, it's a day to celebrate! YAY! Let's have a party and some cake and....just kidding. HA! (We'll save the party for when I finish all 365 days). :)


While we were in Fort Collins, Colorado, there was an amazing shoe store! If you've read my profile, you will find that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE shoes. Especially boots. Thus the name of my blog...

In the shoe store was this amazing sign! Since the name of my blog is about shoes, what better picture than this to celebrate my 50th blog post? 
Let us all take a minute to remember how special shoes are.....ah yes...thank you shoes for being awesome;) (A girl can NEVER have too many shoes!)

So, what kind of shoes do you love? Do you have a favorite shoe brand, type, or just a favorite shoe? Let me know!

Day 49 - A Rainbow

I'm at my 49th post! Tomorrow, I will have 50 blog posts! Cool. Anyway, back to my blog post...

I don't know if you've ever been to Colorado (yes, I'm still blogging about my vacation...hee hee), but it rains sometimes. It will randomly rain without any warning for a few minutes, (and it's usually a fairly light rain) and then the sky will clear and a rainbow will appear. 
This rainbow was a full rainbow, all the way across the ranch. I couldn't really get it in one photo, it was too big. But, it was beautiful. It's one of those moments where you just marvel at the beauty of the earth...or the sky...since we're talking about a rainbow here. Whatever.

So I just wanted to share this picture with you. You got to see a picture of a pretty rainbow, and a little more of their ranch!

Day 48 - Scotty McCreery

Ok, since I finally shared our vacation destination with you, I thought I'd take a break from blogging about my travels, and blog about something awesome that happened to me this week.

Yesterday was a very special day. For those of you who didn't know...and most of you probably didn' was Scotty McCreery's 18th birthday yesterday! ( know...the winner of season 10 of American Idol? Yeah. That Scotty). Anyway, last Tuesday I bought his debut CD, "Clear As Day," which is super awesome. I though't I'd celebrate his birthday by doing a CD review/just tell you all about my new favorite CD. :)

So here goes:

Scotty McCreery's CD was released October 4!!! I voted for him every week on American Idol, and it payed off...he won! I bought his CD on Tuesday, and have listened to it probably ten times already. My favorite song is "Out of Summertime," the first track on the album. It's a nice, upbeat, true country song. Then again, so are "You Make That Look Good" and "Walk in the Country," and I really like those songs as well.

As far as lyrics go, "Dirty Dishes" and "That Old King James" are true to the Country roots: being thankful for your family, and a precious bible passed down through the family.

All in all, I think it is a very well balanced album. Be sure to check it out!
Oh, you didn't know I had a signed Scotty McCreery picture? Well, that's unfortunate...because it's totally awesome! I sent him a few letters, and I got a response from his mom, and a signed picture! How cool is that? I received a signed picture from a person I totally adore...ok, maybe obsess over a little ;). I was so ecstatic. The picture sits on my dresser, for everybody to see. I am so proud of it:) 

So there they two Scotty "things" that I'm so happy to have. Thrilled, actually. ;)

Day 47 - Colorado

I had four comments yesterday...hopefully more people than that read my blog...but I am grateful for all of you who do! No matter how many of you there are. :)

About the post yesterday: The winner is Derek Lee! YAY! He guessed Colorado, and that's the answer. Our family took a road trip this summer to Colorado (near Fort Collins). We stayed at a ranch owned by friends of ours. They own 3,200 acres of land!

When you stand on their back porch, outlooking the beautiful mountains and fields, everything that you can see belongs to them. What a feeling that must be for them to know they OWN that gorgeous land! 

Yesterday was a picture of an old horse corral on their ranch. Today is a picture of a beautiful river that runs through their land. Not many people in Colorado have water on their property, so it's a big deal. This picture was taken when we were driving through the river to get to another part of the property. 
We were able to swim in it and fish. My sister, Isabel, caught a seventeen inch trout! It was very tasty:) Although, when we swam, we just about FROZE to death! The first day was fine, but the second day....I'm serious: that river dropped 50˚! Either way, not many people can say they swam in a fishing hole in the mountains of Colorado! But I can:)

Don't worry...there are more pictures of Colorado coming soon:)

Day 45 - Ultimate Destination

We've finally arrived at our ultimate destination! Who wants to guess where it is? Well, that's what you are going to have to do because I'm only posting a picture... ;) YOU have to figure out where we are...and if I don't get enough guesses, I'm not telling! So, take a guess. Where do you think this picture was taken? 
This picture, by the way, is possibly my favorite picture taken on our vacation. Period. I just love the old, broken down fencing and the mountains... I love it and I hope you do too! :) 

So, please, guess away! Even if you don't normally read my blog, please guess. I want EVERYBODY to try and guess where our fabulous vacation destination is...please?
